Mold in a Basement

There are many different kinds of mold out there and a rainbow of colors.

Here is a color guide to molds commonly found in the house.

Green - If you see green mold, it could be just about any type of unwelcome fungus. There are more than a hundred thousand types of mold — and thousands of species of green mold,  So what does the color green tell you? Not much. 

Olive green, brown, gray or black - These are common molds in the Cladosporium genus. Outdoors, they lurk on plant leaves. Indoors, they're often found on walls and insulation and can grow on damp carpet, too. 

Blue, green, or white - These molds, also common, belong to the Penicillium genus. You’re right if you think that a type of this mold was used to make penicillin many years ago. It’s usually found on food and walls.
