To begin, what really is black mold? Black mold is a general term that refers to several types of mold that have a dark green or black appearance. Black mold’s scientific name is Stachybotrys chartarum, so it is just easier to call it black mold.
There is a lot of discrepancy between black toxic mold and black-colored mold. Unknown to some, just because mold had a black pigment does not mean that it is the toxic “black mold” that we often hear about causing people to evacuate their apartment buildings
