We are Binghamton, NY Black Mold Specialists

Mold is a naturally occurring fungus commonly found thriving in damp areas. It grows from spores and is the cause of rotting wood, spoiled food, and musty smells.

So what causes mold to turn in toxic mold?

When some molds begin to grow, they have the potential to produce hazardous byproducts known as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are a normal part of the development cycle and have been classified as a serious concern with mold growth in the home.

Mycotoxins are unpredictable and there has only been 200 types identified over time. They vary significantly depending on the atmosphere and type of fungus growth. Mycotoxins can have very harmful effects on human beings and enter the body through skin contact, inhalation and more.

When mold starts to produce mycotoxins, they fall into the “Toxic Mold” category.

Black Mold (Stachbotrys)

Stachbotrys is commonly referred to as the “most-dangerous” mold types. It is often called black mold, due to its color. It is usually a dark greenish-black color and is often found in moist areas. It can be found growing on dry wall, ceiling tiles, and other organic materials. Black mold can also grow on concrete given the right conditions. Usually, black mold tends to appear after water damage has already effected an area. Without, proper drying, it can get out of control quickly.

Remember to always contact a professional and never try to test the mold growth yourself! If you think you may have black mold, call us immediately!

How can I identify if black mold is in my home?

  1. Do you smell a musty odor? If so, there is a possibility that some sort of mold is active nearby. This should be followed up by a specialist to determine the severity of the situation.
  2. Visually identify mold growth areas. Active black mold development is usually dark-greenish black in pigment. It may bear likeness to a miniature bush or web once active.
