BLACK MOLD- SIGNS AND SIDE EFFECTS

There may be a deadly killer hiding on your property. This killer hides in unlikely places; on wood, in windows, under your carpet, in the bathroom, right next to you…

Black mold is the most feared type of mold for residents in Southeast Wisconsin, and for good reason. Though black mold is a term several fungi fall under, the one identified as stachybotrys chartarum is the one to watch out for. This type of black mold produces mycotoxins, toxic substances causing havoc on the body.

A person exposed to black mold may experience:

-Mental Impairment -Suppressed immune system
-Respiratory Failure -Chronic Fatigue
-Heart inflammation -Reproductive complications
-Agitated eyes -Coma
-Jaundice -Death

Black mold has the power to make the strongest person weak and sickly. All it has to do is move in with you.

There’s another concern with this type of black mold infestation. The government has the authority to condemn a home considered hazardous. Black mold contamination IS hazardous and homes with it have been condemned.

REASONS FOR BLACK MOLD GROWTH

The conditions suitable for mold growth are warm, dark, and moist places in your home. Black mold is no different. Water damage is another way mold will get a foothold in your home. If you’ve recently had flooding in your house, it’s possible black mold is growing at your house right now.
