#1 Environmental Concern For Homeowners Today!

We are Syracuse, NY Black Mold Specialists

Mold is a natural fungus that thrives in damp conditions and grows from active mold spores. It is why your food spoils, wood deteriorates, and paper smells musty.

So what causes mold to turn in toxic mold?

The answer is mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are a hazardous by-product of some molds. They have been classified as a serious health concern with in-home mold development.

There have been over 200 types of mycotoxins identified. They all vary depending on the environment and mold growth, so they can be unpredictable. Mycotoxins are quite harmful to humans if they are inhaled or come into contact with skin.

If mold growth results in mycotoxins, it is commonly referred to 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.

Always call an expert and never attempt to test mold yourself. If you suspect you may have black mold in your household, call us immediately!
