Black mould on window frames
« on: 13/11/2004 08:27:31 »
What is the black mould (or mold if you're American) that grows on the inside of window frames, especially in the winter?

Is is harmful to health?

There is no way of telling without looking at a spore under a scope.  There are to many types of black/blackish molds out there.

  If it's on the glass or grout then it is dangerous to allergies and asthma but more then likely nothing unusual.

In the south, it's generally mildew, and easily killed with household bleach.
