Black Mold 101
Because of its color all black mold is considered dangerous. That is not the case. There are, however, a few species of black mold that are toxic. There are several strains of black mold and the best way to determine if it is one of the bad kinds is through testing.
SERVPRO of Rexburg/Rigby has certified mold restoration experts who can not only test the area, but also safely remove the toxic mold as well. Because the danger level increases with exposure, timely testing is highly recommended.
A few things to consider:
1. Does mold smell? Yes, it smells like mildew and must.
2. Where is it typically? Basements, Bathrooms, Attics, Laundry Areas, Kitchens, Carpet, and Building Materials.
Black mold can be in a lot of places.
NEVER attempt removal of black mold alone. Professional removal is necessary as disturbing mold can release huge amounts of spores into the air. If you have or suspect you have mold issues, please contact SERVPRO of Rexburg/Rigby and let our certified technicians solve the problem.
