The Dangers of Black Mold
The biggest concern with mold due to water damage in a house is the growth of black mold. Stachybotrys chartarum, as it’s known to scientists, is a microfungus that occurs rarely in the wild. It instead prefers the cellulose building material of our homes! It often grows in damp areas or places that have suffered water damage. One common breeding ground for it is wallpaper, and you might find the whole wall behind your wallpaper has become infested with black mold.
The mold spores from black mold are harmful for people to breathe. The spores trigger a range of respiratory troubles, leading to coughing and wheezing and other symptoms of "sick building syndrome." The effects are especially pronounced and harmful in infants. Prolonged exposure can cause even more serious troubles, such as headache, vomiting, and bleeding in the lungs. If you notice a rise in these symptoms among the people in your home, you may have black mold growing somewhere out of sight.
Professional Mold Remediation
As we mentioned above, mold can’t just be sponged off the wall or removed with store-bought cleaning products. If your house has suffered from water damage, you’ve noticed symptoms of black mold in residents, or you can actually see mold growing, call our professionals right away to arrange for mold remediation. This is the only way to ensure the mold is completely removed and will not start growing back. Our team will work with the best equipment to not only see that the mold is eradicated, but that it doesn’t spread further. (Trying to remove black mold on your own will expose you to excess amounts of mold spores!)
