What Is Black Mold?

Black Mold Removal in Dallas

Stachybotrys Chartarum is usually the type of mold people are talking about when discussing black mold. Stachybotrys is known for producing allergens, and this causes concern for many families that see it on their property. Let’s keep in mind:

  • Not all black mold is Stachybotrys.
  • Not all mold produces toxins.
  • We treat all mold remediation with equal caution.

Mold Safety Tips

Whether you are experiencing mold symptomsor not, safety is a priority. Consider:

  • Don’t disturb the mold. Air flow will disturb the spores and cause them to travel.
  • Avoid mold spray. It may disturb the mold and cause it to spread.
  • If possible, leave the area and keep children and pets away.
  • There is no guarantee that washing clothes with mold will remove the spores.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
