Common Types of Molds SERVPRO Remediators Encounter in New Orleans Commercial Structures

Five types of mold commonly affect commercial establishments in New Orleans-

  • Aspergillus- Propagates indoors quite commonly. Known to produce hazardous compounds called mycotoxins that can cause health effects.
  • Cladosporium- Also quite commonly found indoors during attic mold removal, the colonies appear olive green or brown.
  • Ulocladium- Commonly found in damp places such as showers, tubs, dishwashers, or places that have chronically leaking plumbing. SERVPRO techs commonly encounter it during restroom mold removal.
  • Serpula- Generally found on wooden structures. It can thrive in low moisture and destroy wood (dry rot) quickly.
  • Stachybotrys- Also known as black mold, grows in damp places and is associated with poor indoor air quality, though this species is not any more dangerous to your health than others.
