We are Buffalo, NY Black Mold Specialists

Mold is a naturally occurring fungus that grow best in moist environments. Mold grows from active spores that can be found everywhere. Mold is what causes food to spoil, wood to rot, and paper to smell musty.

So what causes mold to turn in toxic mold?

Mycotoxins are toxic byproducts that can result from mold growth. They start to develop at the same time the mold begins to grow. They are a natural part of the development cycle and have been identified as a serious concern with an in-home presence of mold.

There have been over 200 types of mycotoxins classified over time. Each varies considerably depending on the environment and type of mold growth. That being said, be aware that mycotoxins can have very harmful effects on human beings if it is inhaled or comes in contact with your skin.

If a mold starts to generate mycotoxins it becomes classified as “Toxic Mold.”

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.

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

  1. Do you smell a musty odor? If so, there is a real possibility that some sort of mold is present. This should be followed up by a specialist to determine the situation and any action required.
  2. Visually identify mold growth areas. Active black mold growth is typically dark-greenish black in color. When active, it may bear a resemblance to a small bush or web.
