According to floridahealth.gov, Stachybotrys chartarum is a toxic type of black mold that releases mycotoxins when there is an elevated amount of moisture inside the home.
Certain factors, such as temperature, pH, and humidity, play a role in whether this type of toxic mold, expand or contracts. When this mold is present in the home, injuries, such as, “cold-like symptoms, rashes, sinus inflammation, eye irritation and aggravation of asthma . . . and more general – such as inability to concentrate or fatigue,” become apparent to the residential homeowner or renter.
