With all the news about black mold and its effects on your health, you may be a little worried if you see mold in your house, especially if you think it looks like black mold. You may already know that some types of mold are toxic and can cause health problems, while others do not affect your health, and are only a cosmetic problem.
Traditional thinking was not to bother identifying the type of mold inside a house, and to simply remove it with bleach and water, which will kill the surface of the mold, but may not kill the mold inside the material it’s growing on. Also, mold spores, whether dead or alive can still cause allergy to sensitized individuals. The most effective way to deal with mold in your house is first to identify the mold, then determine the level of contamination and finally have it removed using the appropriate level of remediation.
And, did you know that if you remove toxic mold incorrectly, you can put your health at even further risk? Removing toxic mold in your house without proper protection exposes you to toxic spores released into the air when mold is disturbed.
Unfortunately, you can’t identify the type of mold in your house by looking at a picture. Even someone specialized in mold identification cannot identify types of house mold by pictures of growth on a wall alone.
