BLACK MOLD SIGNS
It is important to note, though, that not all types of mold are toxic. But this doesn’t mean that you should ignore their presence. It is crucial to identify the typical signs of black mold infestation.
The first tell-tale sign is its color. It can be distinguished by its black or greenish-black hue. There are certain species, though, that manifest with a grayish color and a powdery texture.
