Some molds that produce trichothecene mycotoxins, such as Stachybotrys chartarum, can grow in damp indoor environments. Stachybotrys is a greenish-black fungus found worldwide that lives in high-cellulose material, such as straw, hay, paper, dust, lint, and cellulose-containing building material such as fiber board, and gypsum board that becomes chronically moist or water damage due to excessive humidity, water leaks, condensation or flooding. Individuals with chronic exposure to the toxin produced by this fungus have reported cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, and dermatitis (skin rashes).

Follow up testing is available at a discounted rate. Please call our Customer Service Department for details.
