How Harmful is Black Mold?
Not all black mold is toxic; however, Stachybotrys Chartarum is highly toxic and can be particularly harmful to those who are immunocompromised or those who are exposed for an extended period of time. Black mold can present a variety of health issues that range in severity. If you spot black mold in your home you should immediately call Canada’s Restoration Services for mold removal in Toronto or other major Canadian cities.
We don’t suggest you try to remove mold yourself as it may cause further health risks or increase the potential of mold spreading throughout the home. If you discover black mold in your property, call to have mold testing performed so in case it is identified as Stachybotrys Chartarum a professional can speak to you about whether you might need to leave the property until mold removal work is complete.
Don’t Take Mold Lightly
Regardless of the species of mold present, it’s important to take special care to remove it effectively and safely. Canada’s Restoration Services has the appropriate equipment, techniques and training to remove mold safely and ensure it does not spread or present a greater health risk to you and your family.
Mold Detection & Prevention
You can take steps to keep mold out of your home. Mold grows and thrives in humid conditions. So try to keep the humidity in your home at a minimum and less than 50% all day. Dehumidifiers and air conditioners help keep moisture levels in your home at bay and can help prevent mould growth.
