Maybe you've seen the stuff in your attic. Don't be deceived by its bright white color and its somewhat fluffy appearance, white mold is bad for your health. White mold is a naturally occurring fungus that tends to colonize areas where humidity levels are higher and temperatures are warmer. Although it’s referred to as "white mold," it isn't all white - it's actually partially translucent, which makes it more difficult to point out compared to other types of mold. Unfortunately, many people don't pay enough attention to white mold growth for this reason; coupled with the fact that black mold (although dangerous too) seems to get all the publicity.
