Black Mold Remediation Improves Health

mold growthBlack mold can come in many different forms of mold.  Stachybotrys, basidiospores and penicillin, are just a few different kinds of mold that can form a black discoloration.  And then there is what is actually called black mold which is the most toxic form of mold out there.  Regardless of the type of mold, all are harmful to ingest and can cause health problems for you and your family.  Trouble breathing and unknown allergies can occur from mold inhalation, and those with asthma and COPD are at high risk for further damage to their lungs if they are continually inhaling mold.  Although symptoms are relative to each human being as to the reaction to mold, it is not good for any person to ingest mold spores over a long period of time.

If you think you have a possible mold problem, the best thing to do is call a professional company to come and do a full inspection of your home.  They may be able to spot areas of the home that contain visible mold that you may not have seen or perform mold testing on your home to get quantitative data as to the air quality of the home.  Once this is performed it can be determined by the professional what the best avenues to go down are for you, the homeowner.  If there is visible mold, the next step would be to properly remediate the situation professionally – this will kill the current growing mold and deter it from ever returning.

If mold is not visible and your spore count comes back high there are a few different ways to proceed.  The first would be to purchase a high quality air purifier that can clean the daily air in your home.  The second would be to use an infrared camera to see inside the walls of your home to determine if there is a leak or possible mold growth in between the walls.  If this is the case, then I would recommend opening up the walls, remediating the affected areas, and rebuilding.

There is no price to your daily health.  Proper mold remediation for black mold is essential to all homeowners for not only their current health, but also their health for the future their family.  Your home is where you spend the majority of your time and collect a vast amount of memories for you and your family.  Making sure you are in good health and the home is safe is essential to your daily living.  Black mold remediation will not only improve your health but also ensure that your home is safe for your family and those who enter your home.
