What Is Black Mold?

If you notice an unpleasant musty smell in your home and suspect the possibility of mold damage, the situation can be alarming. It’s easy to think every suspicious spot could be hazardous to your health. But with the right restoration company, you can live mold-free. 


How To Identify Black Mold 

The most important thing to remember when identifying black mold is that it doesn’t look like the green fuzzy stuff you sometimes see in old basements—it’s a dark, almost black color. It tends to grow in patches and often has a somewhat slimy texture.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
