What Is Black Mold?

Black Mold Removal in Fort Worth and the Mid-Cities

When people talk about black mold, they’re usually referring to Stachybotrys Chartarum.  It’s capable of causing health effects in some people.  If you see black mold, keep in mind:

  • Mold commonly occurs in our natural environment.  The problem with mold starts when there is too much in one space, or when someone sensitive to mold has a reaction to it. 
  • Not all black is Stachybotrys.  There are many types of mold that are also black. 
  • Not all mold is toxic.  It’s difficult to distinguish between mold types with the naked eye, and that’s why our black mold remediation process is performed with the highest levels of precaution--always.

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.
