Richardson Mold Testing and Removal
Mold loves wet spaces. If your house has recently been subjected to any form of unwanted water, such as a flood or a leaky pipe, it’s not something you want to ignore. In fact, it’s something you’ll want to deal with immediately. Getting professional mold inspection is a great start.
Not every mold you find in your home is toxic. Few people are allergic to the mold that grows on a forgotten loaf of bread, and remedying the problem is as easy as throwing the bread away. Black mold, also known as toxic mold or by its scientific name Stachybotrys chartarum, is a whole different story. Black mold causes allergic reactions in many people, leading to rashes, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, and a host of other problems. Even worse, toxic mold can affect the brain and cause everything from headaches to memory loss to depression. With black mold causing so many health problems, you’ll want to get mold testing performed as soon as possible.
What Does Black Mold Need?
When you’re watching the news and you see black mold covering the walls of a flooded building after a hurricane, you’re probably not very surprised. But black mold can be present anywhere there is water and cellulose. Cellulose is most often found in tree products, such as the wood used in framing a building. But cellulose is also on the facer and backer paper of drywall found in most buildings, as well as in most carpet. With so much cellulose for black mold to feed on, it’s no surprise that it shows up after a space has become waterlogged.
Unfortunately, black mold can often hide behind walls, grow, and continue sending its mycotoxin spores throughout the building via the HVAC system. That’s why a professional mold test should be performed in order to verify the problem.
