We have years of experience removing mold and understand the urgency associated with eliminating outbreaks of black mold.
Understanding Black Mold
Stachybotrys Chartarum, or black mold, grows on materials with high in cellulose. Fiberboards, gypsum boards, paper, or drywall are all susceptible to black mold growth. As with other mold types, black mold is a result of moisture and water damage. It takes root as a result of water leaks, excessive condensation, water infiltration, and flooding. Mold spores enter properties on clothes, pet fur, and through air currents. But it requires a constant source of moisture to spread and grow, so one of the key steps in mitigating it includes eradicating water damage. How can property owners determine if they have toxic black mold?
Follow your nose: Mold always has a musty smell. While these odors might not indicate black mold, they do tell you there’s mold growing somewhere in the house. Discovering mold is the first step towards determining whether it is a black mold.
Use your eyes: Black mold is usually dark-colored and mossy. However, professional black mold removal specialists can tell you more about the growth.
Pay attention to that cough: If your office or home plays host to numerous persistent coughs, it might be worth checking out water-prone areas, such as the basement, for mold growth. Obviously, many things can cause a cough, but mold can be one of them. It always pays to be thorough.
The Dangers of Long-Term Exposure to Black Mold
Black mold is different than its counterparts. While moldy conditions can worsen air quality and create mildew-like smells, black mold adds health risks to the equation. Even short-term exposure to black mold can have consequences, including persistent allergy-like symptoms. However, long-term exposure can be much worse. Property owners who discover black mold should keep in mind some of the potential side effects of black mold, including:
- Memory loss
- Bouts of confusion
- Unexplained weight gain
- Hair loss
- Stomach pains
- And worse
