Everything You Need to Know About Black Mold Removal
The name ‘black mold’ doesn’t just refer to a colour, but a dangerous variety of mold that has serious — and even life-threatening — health consequences. Black mold removal in Mississauga can help protect you and your family from these effects and make your home a healthier and safer place to be.
Stachybotrys Chartarum, AKA black mold, is a type of mold that produces mycotoxins, a toxin that causes serious health effects. Read on to learn more about black mold removal, where you find it, and how we keep you safe.
Where Does Black Mold Grow?
Black mold grows in areas of high humidity, like attics, bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. While mold can be activated on any surface with exposure to water like drips, leaks or condensation, there are a few areas that are more prone to mold growth.
Some of the most common materials won’t surprise you - they’re found all over our homes:
How to Remove Black Mold
At MoldTech, we recommend having a professional remove any mold in your home. Mold reproduces by spores that, when released into the air, can easily spread and be brought into different areas. Both spores and mycotoxins are released when mold is disturbed. Professional removal is the only way to ensure you’re protected.
The Remediation Process
Professional black mold removal will keep you safe and prevent the spread of mold or mold-infested materials. At MoldTech we take safety seriously and contain our worksite with barriers that prevent mold transfer. We use professional-grade HEPA air filtration systems to capture any airborne spores, and biological cleaning agents that are pet and human safe.
Contaminated materials are safely removed and disposed of according to regional disposal guidelines, and every site is thoroughly tested and cleaned before we pack up to go - nothing beats the MoldTech clean! If we aren’t testing at 99.9% clear, we won’t leave until we do.
