Harmful molds can be categorized into three: allergenic, pathogenic and toxigenic. Allergenic molds trigger allergy-like and asthma-like attacks on people. Pathogenic molds cause health problems for people with acute illness. Toxigenic molds are the most dangerous because they can produce toxic substances that can be dangerous and sometimes even deadly to human bodies.
Acremonium: This mold is toxigenic. This changes in form, from a moist mold to a powdery fine substance that can be easily inhaled. This often appears pink, orange, gray or white. Exposure to this mold can lead to bone marrow and immunity diseases. This can also damage organs.
Altenaria: This is an allergenic mold that grows in damp areas like kitchens and bathrooms. The appearance of this mold is often velvety with dark green or brown hairs. Exposure to this mold can lead to asthmatic symptoms and upper respiratory tract infection-like effects.
Aspergillus: This kind of allergenic mold has over 185 species which makes it one of the most common household molds. The colors vary for this mold, and while it is mainly allergenic, this type of mold can also produce carcinogens.
Chaetomium: This cottony mold evolves appearance from gray to brown and eventually black. It can usually be found in buildings that have suffered from water damage.
