Mold Damage

There are thousands upon thousands of mold species that are found naturally in soils, decaying matter, and plant debris. Mold is an ever changing part of our world's ecosystem that everyone should understand more about to help control.

Mold spores are simply invisible to the naked eye, making it impossible to know when you might serve as a vessel.

Acremonium can be parasitic or saprophytic to plants and other living fungi. The growth rate is moderately rapid, maturing within days. Having colonies at the center of a flat or folded, compact velvety membrane that often produces gritty texture, similar to cotton after aging. Colors include white, pale gray, and pink presenting long, slender phialide and single-celled hyaline connected in a slime drop. Over 100 different species of Acremonium exist today.

Alternaria grows on organic debris in soil, leaves, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. It can develop near sewage, leather items, stone, cosmetics, computer disks, and even exist near jet fuel. This type of mold can exist indoors as well, flourishing in house dust, carpeting, household textiles, and window frames. It grows rapidly producing wooly textures and gray, short, aerial hyphae over time. The gray color often turns to a greenish black or olive brown with a light border over time.
