What Is Black Mold?
Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys, is a toxic fungus often found during infestations of homes and other buildings. It should be noted that many molds can be black in color, and the presence of black mold is not always cause for alarm. To determine the seriousness of an infestation, it's important to look out for signs like musty odors or discoloration on walls.
Black mold has a black or sometimes grayish appearance and slime-like texture, but it can be hard to spot since its size can range from one square inch all the way up to several feet in length. If you're concerned about black mold in your home or office space, it's best to reach out to a professional who can tell you exactly what kind of mold you're dealing with and create a plan for removal.
What Is the Difference Between Mold Removal and Mold Remediation?
Mold removal and mold remediation are two different processes that address the presence of mold in a home or business. Mold removal removes existing mold colonies from any surface they have colonized, including walls, ceilings, floors, and other surfaces. Mold remediation involves removing the visible mold and handling the underlying cause of mold growth.
What Is Involved With Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation is a multi-faceted process that requires testing, removal, demolition, sanitizing, and containment in order to effectively clean mold and eliminate any potential health risks. Testing should be performed in order to identify the source of the growth and determine what kind of action needs to be taken. Once testing is complete, removal, or demolition of any materials that are found to contain mold can begin.
Sanitizing workspaces with anti-fungal products can help minimize spreading the toxins. To prevent further spread of contamination during the cleanup process, proper containment must be established by setting up plastic barriers and negative air pressure chambers in heavily contaminated areas. Upon completion of these steps, specialized mold cleaning procedures may be requested for highly sensitive situations such as medical facilities or libraries.
