Black mold Removal

Molds are fungus that easily grow and spread on moist areas. When inhaled or ingested, it can cause allergic reactions that is commonly manifested by hay fever, breathing problems, headaches and many others. Black Mold is one of the most dangerous fungi that produce harmful toxins called mycotoxins. It usually grows at any areas of the home or office where the building materials are made of wood, cotton, fiberboard, or paper. If this is not controlled or removed, it can potentially lead to several health problems in humans and animals. Hence, one should know how to detect a black mold and remove it as soon as possible.

Molds can be recognized by its smell. However, a black mold cannot be easily detected and it keeps on growing without knowing its presence. In order to prevent its growth, moisture should be observed and reduced. Molds require 24 to 48 hours of moisture to propagate and if your home is wet for several hours, black molds might start to exist. Check for water leaks in the roofs, walls, pipes, shower or taps. Inspect it more often and fix it without delay. Avoid condensation also. It usually forms on surfaces like metal pipes, water tanks, concrete walls and windows. Condensation can cause moisture and it can be reduced by keeping the room temperature warmer or by simply insulating the entire surface. If there are areas that are more likely to be humid, proper ventilation is needed. Put on exhaust fans, air conditioners or simply open the windows in order to reduce humidity. Do not pile wet clothes or things for a long time because you are inviting molds to grow and spread. As much as possible, keep your house clean and dry in order to ensure that molds will not grow.

If you have noticed that molds are starting to grow, vacuum the area. A vacuum cleaner should have a HEPA filter in order to get rid of surface pores and reduce the risk of releasing it in the air. Wear a mask and gloves every time you attempt to remove black molds. Do not forget to scrub the mold with anti-fungal agent. The removal agent will kill the black molds and lighten the stains present on it. If you attempt to scrub or spray the black mold, allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Repeat the process if it is still concentrated and replace the anti-fungal agent if you think it does not work effectively. Clean up the area completely and discard the materials you used to avoid the black molds from spreading.
