Black mold is a toxic mold that is commonly found in flood-damaged buildings from extreme weather conditions, sewage system backups and long-standing stagnant water from clean water sources. In these cases, flood water is assumed to be contaminated with microbial organisms that provides an ideal breeding ground for toxic mold.
Although not all mold is toxic, any type of mold can produce health problems when it becomes an infestation. One square inch of mold can hold 10 million spores. Minor visible mold on the outside of drywall may be several times greater on the inside of the wall cavity where it grows much more rapidly.
