Black Mold – Steps to Identify and Remove 

Bleach does not kill Black Mold! It’s true. Bleach only changes the color of mold. Most likely, the mold problem will remain or return. To properly get rid of a significant mold problem, a real plan by  trained and state certified Mold Assessor is the smartest and most economical approach to get rid of your black mold problem. Read below to learn what you need to know about black mold and the compliant method of identification and removal.  

Black mold is actually a misnomer.   Typically the term “Black Mold” is associated with a species of mold identified as Stachybotrys.  Stachybotrys is actually greenish-black in color.  Mold species  grow in a variety of colors so determining species of molds by color is often misleading.  Molds that are black in color do not always mean the species is Stachybotrys. Stachybotrys is a mold that produces a myco-toxin which can produce adverse reactions / affects in humans and immuno-compromised or hypersensitive individuals.

Stachybotrys is a species of mold that is found in indoor environments and on specific building materials such as the cellulose paper on drywall.  Stachybotrys produce spores with slimy heads rather than dry heads so its spores are somewhat sticky in nature.  As a result “black mold” does not become air born as easily as some as spores from other mold species.  If Stachybotrys, AKA- Black mold spores show up in air samples taken at the indoor environment then it likely means there as an active colony growing somewhere in that environment or significant reservoir of black mold spores present from a previous water event.

Due to the type of mycotoxins produced by black mold, the mold should be properly identified and located by a Licensed Mold Assessor and removed by a licensed mold remediation company.
