Tips for Spotting and Taking Care of Black Mold

black mold

Black mold is a type of toxic mold that can occur in your home or place of business, sometimes with little warning. The mold has the potential to be quite dangerous to the health of those who come into contact with it and who are breathing the area around it. This includes the pets in the family, of course. Black mold requires moisture to survive and thrive, and the areas of your home that tend to be moist are more prone to developing this problem.

The color of the toxic mold tends to be black and in some cases a very dark green or even gray. It also tends to have a slimy texture to it. One of the other features of this type of mold that you might notice is the scent. It tends to have a musty scent like mildew. In some cases, you might even be able to smell the mold and not see it. This could mean that it is lurking within a wall or the floors.

Naturally, you do not want to leave the black mold to proliferate and cause more problems on your property. You want to get in touch with a professional who can identify the mold on the property and then take steps to have that mold removed and the property put back in shape. If you are in the Naples area, you will want to get in touch with FP Property Restoration by calling (888) 408-2335.
