Cladosporium is a common mold found both indoors and outdoors. Naturally occurring Cladosporium spores in the outdoor environment are present year round in many areas and are known to be a common source of allergens and may trigger asthma attacks. In indoor environments, Cladosporium is often found on wet surfaces. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Alternaria.”
“Cladosporium has been recognized as a human pathogen, although infections are not very common,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “We hope this video helps to educate people about Cladosporium and other microbial contaminants that may be found in some indoor environments.”
