Black Mold

Black mold in particular is a health hazard and should be removed as soon as possible. Black mold has the highest potential to form on dampened building materials where heat is present.  Pay special attention to walls that are adjacent to heat generating machinery such as an Air Conditioner or a Water Heater.  Avoiding habitation in a dwelling contaminated by black mold as symptoms worsen with prolonged exposure.

Toxic black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum, as it’s known to scientists, can release spores as it feeds on organic materials in common household materials like drywall, carpet, insulation or sub-flooring that have been exposed to moisture. These spores, if ingested or inhaled, can cause a range of unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms in humans.1

While removing black mold we recommend the use of an industrial fan and respirators, as well as long sleeve clothing.  If you are combating mold and mildew in your dwelling, warehouse, or other building, stop by Southern Cleaning Supply for industrial products at wholesale prices, and the advice you need to get the job done.
