Humboldt County has the best climate for mold to thrive on. It is damp and humid, exactly the environment where mold grows best.

The most common types of mold are; aspergillum, cladosporium and stachybotrys atra (also known as black mold).

Aspergillus is a fairly allergenic mold that is commonly found on foods and in home air conditioning systems.

Cladosporium is most often found in the back of toilets, painted surfaces and fiberglass air ducts. It is sometimes green or black and looks similar to pepper grains. It can trigger allergies symptoms such as red and watery eyes, rashes and a sore throat. This mold is non-toxic to humans although it can causes some distressing symptoms.
