What Is Black Mold?

Mold, black mold especially, is force to be reckoned with. A common misconception of cleaning mold is that bleach kills it. The help of professionals is highly recommended. SERVPRO of West Jordan's team is always wanting to help you. Don't underestimate a small amount of mold, especially near to an area you can’t see, can be just the tip of the iceberg. Only a certified mold inspector can uncover the extent of your mold issue.

SERVPRO of West Jordan offers residential and commercial mold removal services. If you begin to notice your normal allergy medicine isn’t cutting it like it used to do, it’s not a bad idea to check around for mold in your home or office.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
