Black mold is found in many homes and buildings, and is known to have a more severe affect on your health than other, more common types of mold. A common misconception is that all black mold is toxic and will cause severe reactions. Not all black mold is toxic. If you would like to know if your home or building harbors toxic black mold, let Advanced Mold Diagnostics provide you with the best mold testing Wynnewood residents trust.
Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys, thrives off of moisture in order to survive. Because it thrives in moistened areas, you will know it by it’s slimy texture and dark green or black colors. Fortunately because of the moisture, black mold spores are not commonly airborne. Black mold also smells very musty, just as many other molds do.
Possible Physical Symptoms From Black Mold
Can I Remove It Myself?
Yes, but with extreme caution. There are a few methods you can use to remove mold yourself. Some methods include items that you can commonly find in your home without having to go to the store, such as borax soap, bleach, vinegar and baking soda.
You should always be sure to wear appropriate clothing, masks, goggles and have the proper ventilation when removing mold. Please see AMD’s website for more information on how to perform DIY mold removal.
