You may notice staining on your shower curtains or other surfaces in the bathroom or kitchen or a black or green-grey material coming from cold water taps. This is normally caused by airborne spores settling on damp surfaces. These multiply to form a visible slime or stain which is normally black but can also be red, pink or orange. Although they do not look very pleasant, there is no evidence to suggest they are harmful to health and are not caused by a deficiency in your water supply. Regular cleaning of the surfaces with a household cleaning product and improving the ventilation to the area can help minimse the problem.
The following leaflet provides further information about this type of problem and how it can be resolved.
