Types

 Cladosporium is a type of fungus that includes many common indoor and outdoor molds.

Cladosporium is not a single species of mold. Rather Cladosporium is a genus of mold that includes more than 40 individual species of fungus.

Some species of Cladosporium can grow indoors while others thrive outdoors. Either way, the genus frequently occurs in humid areas or moist places.

Places where Cladosporium can be found indoors include:

  • basements
  • bathrooms
  • under sinks
  • around faucets
  • on carpets
  • in curtains
  • on upholstered furniture
  • near heating and cooling appliances
  • attics

Outside, Cladosporium can be found on:

  • decaying trees
  • dead plants
  • tree trunks

Cladosporium appears in clusters of black, yellow, or green spots. The spots spread quickly when not cleaned away. However, it is almost impossible to identify Cladosporium visually.
