Did you know that the famous Black Mold may not be the dangerous type of mold?
Mold can be several different colors, textures, shapes and sizes. Mold is defined as a fungus that grows on organic materials. These materials can be Sheetrock paper, dirt, cardboard, etc. The mold can appear on other items but there is probably something organic on top of the item that it is growing on.
Many news outlets have made "Black Mold" the worst kind of mold but in fact it does not have to be. Pink colored mold that you see in the photo may be worse than black mold. One kind of mold can be presented in 4 different colors in one home.
If you believe you may have mold in your home you should call a licensed Certified Industrial Hygienist to test the area.
