#1 Environmental Concern For Homeowners Today!

We are Columbus, OH Black Mold Specialists

Found in damp atmospheres, mold is a natural fungus that sprouts from active mold spores. Mold is what causes food to spoil, wood to decay and paper to smell like mildew.

So what causes mold to turn in toxic mold?

When some fungus grows it produces a toxic by product known as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are a natural by-product that result from mold development, and have been identified as a primary health concern with mold growth.

200 types of mycotoxins have already been found within the past few decades. They differ greatly depending on the type of mold. Mycotoxins can be seriously harmful if they come in to contact with your skin or are inhaled.

When mold starts to generate mycotoxins it falls into the category of “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.

Remember, always contact an expert and never test the mold yourself! If you think you may have black mold in your home, call us immediately!

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

  1. Visually identify mold growth areas – Lively black mold growth is normally dark-greenish black in color. It may bear a similarity to a miniature bush or web.
  2. Is there a musty odor? – If so, there is a strong possibility that some sort of mold is present. This should be followed up by a specialist to determine the situation.
