Many mold types can cause allergic reactions and irritate your loved ones, especially Black Mold.  It's important that you reach out to a specialized black mold remediation company like SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North whenever you see any kind of mold.  Different types of mold can affect your home, even at the same time.  If you believe that you have a mold issue give a professional team like SERVPRO right away.  Black Mold grows and spreads very quickly, so every minute counts!

What We Need To Understand About Black Mold?

If you have any sort of water damage, mold can usually start to grow within the first 48 to 72 hours depending on the size of the leak.  Keep in mind these following facts about Black Mold:

  • Spores from mold are so tiny that you cannot see them.  Which makes their spread even more easy as they may travel through the home without you even knowing.  Travelling through moving air, they can pass through many openings in your home and even stick to surfaces like walls, clothing, pets etc.
  • Mold feeds off of moisture, so anywhere excess moisture is created or left or even trapped serves as a breeding ground for black mold.  Even worse is the fact that moisture isn't always immediately seen or felt.
  • Areas that may be affected by black mold have to be prepped properly so the spread doesn't continue or so that the problem doesn't come back or persist after treatment.  This is especially why it is important to reach out to a professional like SERVPRO who has the proper training and equipment to handle these areas and those situations.
  • Black mold can possibly produce strong odors and spores that may affect the health of those in contact with it.  On the contrary there are types of mold that don't have an immediately noticeable smell or health effect.  A specialist should be contacted so that they can truly test whatever microbial growth is in the area to see if it is mold and how to handle it.

Nobody will "know" what it is until it is tested.
