Black Mold VS Regular Mold
Posted in Mold Removal, on December 18, 2020
In a residential home or a commercial building, black mold is not an uncommon occurrence. In fact, there are many variations of black mold and there’s often confusion about which types are toxic to humans and which are not.
Without question, mold of any kind should be removed – and for homeowners who require mold removal in Toronto professional attention is preferred. This professional approach is especially relevant to black mold removal.
With black mold, some species are considered toxic. These molds produce mycotoxins, which is the substance that activates negative health responses in some individuals (the very young and the elderly are most susceptible).
Different Species of Mold
Throughout nature, there are tens of thousands of mold species – and for the most part, they do not pose a danger to humans. At the same time, there are species that do pose health dangers and these need to be quickly identified when discovered.
Even when a mold species is identified as harmful, there are typically three main classifications that describe their effects. Here again, it’s important to have a professional do the assessment.
- Allergenic Molds – can trigger an allergic reaction (like an asthma attack)
- Pathogenic Molds – these can cause issues for those who are already ill
- Toxigenic Molds – these produce dangerous toxic substances (toxic mold)
Black Mold/Regular Mold
Until an infiltration has been properly assessed and tested, black mold could be of any species. Indeed, there are certain species of “regular mold” that are actually black in colour. Either way, it’s better to remove a mold infiltration and prevent the potential for health issues to emerge.
For mold removal in Toronto, the best approach is a professional approach. It’s the best way to prevent mold exposure and the best way to avoid health risks. Proper remediation is even more essential when black mold removal is required – there is no reason to take unnecessary risks.
