Mold spores are all around us and they often find a nice place to relax — right in our homes. They settle and cause mold growths to spread. Although a little R&R is always great, we’re certain that you’ll agree that your house isn’t exactly the ideal place for these mold spores to chill out. There are many different types of house mold that are commonly found in the homes of unsuspecting homeowners. It’s important to know a little about these types of house mold as well as the conditions in which these growths like to grow. This information will help you to know when it’s time to call in the professionals for help or even avoid mold problems altogether. Let’s take a quick look at some of the most common molds found in houses.

The Truth About Indoor Mold

Okay, so the first thing you should know about indoor mold is that it can be very harmful. Yes, mold spores are everywhere and it’s impossible to have your home be completely clear and free from them. But, when the mold spore levels get out of hand and you see mold growth going on in your home, then it’s safe to say that you’ve got a problem. And, it’s the kind of problem that requires immediate solving. Growing mold can be a danger to the health of everyone who is exposed to it. So, you should definitely look into getting some help if you have found any growths in your home. In some cases, people might experience the effects of mold before they even realize there’s a mold problem. So, even if you don’t see any mold growths, you should make sure that everything’s okay by asking some professionals about air quality testing and so forth. Now, let’s talk about those common types of mold growth that we mentioned a little earlier.

Some Different Types of House Mold

One of the most common types of mold growth that are found inside homes is Aspergillus. This indoor mold can vary in the way that it looks. This is because there are several specific kinds of Aspergillus molds. Another commonly seen house mold is Chaetomium. This kind of mold often grows due to water damage. You can definitely smell it when it’s present. Then, there is Fusarium mold. Do you like to keep the house cold? Well, Fusarium mold also enjoys those low temperatures! So, be careful about that, especially if there’s excess moisture in your home.

On the other hand, there’s Cladosporium. This kind of mold doesn’t care whether you like warm or cold temperatures in your home. It can grow in either type of environment! As long as the surface is full of moisture, Cladosporium can feel quite comfortable resting there. Watch out for wet fabrics and materials in your house as this mold likes to set up shop in such places. Trichoderma is another kind of mold that appreciates excess moisture. It tends to settle and grow on surfaces that remain wet. Places like the carpet and walls should be kept dry. Unless, of course, you’d like to welcome some Trichoderma into your lovely home.
