Black Mold

Black mold is the name commonly used to refer to Stachybotrys chartarum, a type of mold that’s black in color and infamous for producing poisonous mycotoxins. It can be found worldwide and it tends to grow practically anywhere there’s water and organic matter to activate its spores. Under circumstances ideal for its growth, black mold can form large colonies where toxin production can happen.

Black mold has been known to fester in buildings and households where water intrusion has happened. Leftover moisture from floods and seepages can trigger spore activation on wood, drywall, wallpaper and other surfaces in your property. It can also thrive within walls and ceilings, concealed from view until the situation becomes out of hand.

Health Hazards from Toxic Black Mold

Black mold is always bad news when it grows indoors. You don’t have to ingest it or make skin contact with it to run the risk of incurring negative health impacts. Molds produce spores that can go airborne. Once they start floating indoors, they can be inhaled or they can land on your skin. They can also travel to various parts of your building if they get into your air ducts and ventilation systems.

Here’s a list of possible health issues that can occur as a result of constant exposure to black mold:

  • Headaches
  • Malaise
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Allergic reactions
  • Asthma attacks
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Cancer

Of course, the severity of the symptoms depends on several factors. The length of exposure to spores, the potency of the toxins and the strength of the person’s immune system all play a role in how bad the health impacts will be. To avoid serious health issues, seek help froma trusted company through Restoration Renegades as soon as you spot or suspect mold in your property.
