Mold Classes and Hazards You Should Know

Untreated mold at home will only lead to more serious problems. So as early as now, do something to get rid of them.

Indoor fungi are categorized into three hazard classes according to their health risks. These classes can be compared to the risk groups in microorganisms managed inside laboratory environments.

  • Hazard Class A - This class includes molds and their metabolic by-products which are extremely hazardous to human health. These metabolites should immediately be removed from households to prevent serious health problems.
  • Hazard Class B - The class B molds are those fungi that can lead to allergies once inhaled or contacted by family members.
  • Hazard Class C - In this class are fungi that are not really dangerous to health. However, spread of these molds can result to economic damage. So they should also be eliminated once you see them in your building or home.
