is a greenish-black mould that thrives in areas of high humidity, moisture and on cellulose materials (eg building paper, wood products and gib board) (5,6,7,1) Mould has the potential to grow wherever there is a chronic wet environment and cellulose materials.
after only one hour, whereas the most dramatic decrease in viability of the conidia of Stachybotrys
Palo Alto, CA) has patented phenol oxidizing enzymes naturally-produced by strains of the species Stachybotrys
which possess a pH optima in the alkaline range and which are useful in modifying the color associated with dyes and colored compounds, as well as in anti-dye transfer applications.
chartarum is the strain of mold that does have defined health risks.
Ballard and her husband had discovered a kind of mold called Stachybotrys
growing in their home.
The black mold Stachybotrys
chartarum, commonly found in water-damaged buildings, had already been linked to people's respiratory irritation and asthma.
The home was infested with stachybotrys
, one of the most dangerous molds.
The toxic substances from some species of molds and fungi including Stachybotrys
, Aspergillus, and other organisms that grow in water-damaged buildings, are insidious.
The species most commonly referred to as toxic mold are Stachybotrys
chartarum, Aspergillus and Penicillium.
