The Dangers of Black Mold and What to Do if You Find it

The Dangers of Black Mold and What to Do if You Find it

When it comes to mold, there are a lot of different colors and types that can be found both indoors and outdoors. While some types of mold are harmless, others can be quite dangerous – especially black mold.

 

Black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum, is a type of mold that is dark green or black in color. It is commonly found in humid or damp areas, such as basements, bathrooms, and kitchens. This mold thrives in warm conditions with little or no ventilation.

The Dangers of Black Mold

 

While black mold is not necessarily more dangerous than other types of mold, it can cause various health problems if inhaled. These health problems can range from mild to severe; in some cases, black mold can even be deadly. Some of the health problems that black mold can cause include:

 

  • Allergic reactions include sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, and skin irritation.

  • Respiratory problems, such as difficulty breathing and shortness of breath.

  • Neurological problems, such as headaches, memory loss, and dizziness.

  • Immune system problems.

 

If you think you may have black mold in your home, it is important to take action immediately. The first step is to identify the source of the moisture that is causing the mold to grow. Once the source of moisture has been identified, it should be fixed. Once the moisture problem has been fixed, a professional should remove the mold.
