Types Of Mould

What are some types of mould?


While it is interesting be able to identify what type of mould may be growing in the building, it is not necessary to identify the type(s) present. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in America states that all moulds should be treated the same in terms of health risk and removal.

Some of the more common types of mould found in buildings include:

  • Stachybotrys chartarum (also known as Stachybotrys atra)
  • Aspergillus sp.
  • Penicillium sp.
  • Fusarium sp.
  • Trichoderma sp.
  • Memnoniella sp.
  • Cladosporum sp.
  • Alternaria sp.
