Identifying the Possibility of Black Mold

1/18/2019 (Permalink)

If left untreated, black mold may cause serious health issues to you or your loved ones. Learning the potential signs of black mold can help save you from the possibility of health risks.

Water Damages – A leading cause of black mold comes from water damages that were left untreated. Look for areas where there might be previous water damages, or places where moisture might be elevated such as basements and bathrooms.

Patches – Look for patches of black mold on different surfaces. Black mold will begin growing in a circular patter until it begins to spread. Also check to see if it is still wet, leaving it with a slimy looking appearance, or if it has a dustier appearance meaning that the area has now dried.

If you suspect there might be black mold in your home, the first step to take would be to have an Industrial Hygienist come and collect samples to determine if you do indeed have mold in your home, as well as what type. Once it has been determined that there is mold in your home, SERVPRO of Kirksville will be able to come in take measures to remediate the mold and make your problem “Like it never even happened.”
