Does your home need mold treatment?

Mold in simplistic term is a threat to your happy household. Scientifically, it is a fungus growing in multicellular filaments known as hyphae. And what’s wrong with that? Why should you be afraid? Well, mold is hazardous to your health and at its most destructive form has the power to bring down a building, your home. Therefore, mold treatment is something every home needs, requires.

That small dark patch of mold at a damp corner in your home could give your children chronic lung diseases upon constant long-term exposure. As a result of mold exposure, your pets can fall sick, elderly people severely sill and cause severe allergies to all. Having mold in your home is therefore certainly not an option! However, mold spores are present everywhere, in the outdoors and indoors, and it is not scientifically possible to eradicate every last spore. But the amount indoor mold spores can be brought down to a level that is not harmful in any way. And that basically is what mold treatment is all about.

If you have damp humid corners at your home, or it is that time of the year when heavy rain and humid weather hits your town, your home is more likely to be susceptible to molds. When discovering mold, many people try to scrape it off by themselves that is dangerous to your health and your home. The right thing to do is always to call a professional for mold treatment.

What to do when you find mold in your home

  1. Try to locate all mold patches: If you see one mold patch then there’s a chance there are more. If it’s a rather small one and just a single mold patch, you can clean it with soap or authorized material and take precautions to not cause more mold outbursts. However, in case then you have several patches or a big patch of mold, stay away and call mold inspection professionals. A good way to locate mold is to look for water leakage source.
  2. Get ready for a thorough mold inspection: you could have been living with hidden mold since a long time. So, if you have finally spotted some it is time to run a professional mold inspection and find all the sources and hidden molds. Prolonged exposure to mold can be almost close to fatal. Also, professional mold inspectors will come up with a scientific and effective way to treat mold in your household.
  3. Try to control the moisture source: As long as there’s water and humidity, chances of more mold formation will be there. So, locating a water leakages or moisture source should be your primary concern. If you can’t manage to fully control the moisture source, then at least try close all water supply till professionals can do it for you. Also, remember to stay out of mold infected area and keep your family members away as well. Severe allergies to many other hazardous effects will appear upon constant exposure to mold.If you think you have a mold problem, please call Five Boro Mold Specialist for more information on our NYC mold inspection services.schedule-NYC-mold-Inspection

Toxic Black Mold – Stachybotrys Chartarum

The Most Dangerous Household Mold- Stachybotrys Chartarum

toxic black mold nyc
Stachybotrys chartarum (atra) or “black mold” is the most dangerous household mold among the over 200 types of mold that can be present in a home. Black mold is responsible for what has come to be known as ‘sick building syndrome’ and is the proven cause of residential deaths in several cases. Has the danger of black mold been exaggerated and overblown by the news media or is it really the immediate and severe danger it appears to be?
The answer to that question is yes. Black mold can be deadly.

Stachybotrys chartarum

Stachybotrys chartarum also known as Stachybotrys alternans, Stachybotrys atra and Stilospora chartarum. Regardless of what it is called, this is black mold and it can live in grain and soil, but it loves to live in damp construction materials such as those used to form the walls of buildings. Black mold loves these materials rich in cellulose. This mold was first discovered in 1837 in the walls of a house in Prague. Mycologist August Carl Joseph Corda discovered and described it for the first time. It particularly likes wallpaper, drywall and any wet material made with gypsum.

What Makes Toxic Black Mold So Dangerous?

Many different types of molds can cause severe health issues, including respiratory, flu and fever symptoms and hay fever. The difference with Black mold is that like many other molds it produces mycotoxins – a chemical that can cause many types of illness and even death. When the spores from Black mold are released and sent airborne, these mycotoxins can be absorbed by people and animals through the skin, through ingestion and through inhaling them.
Both people and animals react to these mycotoxins with anything from a simple cold to headaches, fever, malaise, dermatitis, sore throats, fatigue, nose bleeds, rhinitis, dermatitis, sometimes hair loss and even death. People who die from exposure to Black mold due so from bleeding in the lungs or pulmonary hemorrhage. A research study done in Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-90’s showed that infants who lived in homes that had very high incidents of Black mold died from pulmonary hemorrhage. These toxins suppress the immune system and can cause liver or kidney cancer.

The Different Types of Stachybotrys Chartarum

There are several different strains of this mold and it is thought that some of them also produced trichothecene mycotoxin- Satratoxin H. This toxin is poisonous if it is inhaled. The spores that are produced by Black mold carry this toxin. Black mold grows slowly but relentlessly inside the walls of the building. It is often not seen until there is a major infestation. It also requires at least 55% humidity to thrive. All of the physical symptoms caused by Stachybotrys chartarum (atra) are labeled in the medical community as pneumomycosis. Even dead spores from Black mold can be dangerous and cause the same problems.
These medical issues related to Black mold have been known since the 1830’s after the mold was first discovered. The first reported case of any animals or pets to be affected by this mold was in Florida when two pet cats died while having their teeth cleaned a routine procedure. Soon after, an inspection of their home produced an infestation of Black mold. Then blood tests were taken from the deceased cats and toxins from Black mold were found. The cats died from pulmonary hemorrhaging.
The US Centers for Disease Control do not feel that just the presence of this mold in your home or in a building you frequent is a cause for panic. They believe the mold should be tested and professionally removed but that the building is then still habitable.

Mold inspection:

NYC mold inspector taking swab sampleA mold inspection basically involves two actions; finding where the mold is growing in your home and investigating to find what caused the mold to grow in the first place. Even if you are already aware of mold growing in or around your house or building, it is always a good idea to perform a thorough mold inspection as visible mold growth is usually a positive indicator that there is more mold growing somewhere out of view.

Our mold inspection experts use a wide range of high tech mold detection equipment to investigate, collect, and analyze all of our findings, such as: Swab Samples, Air and Moisture Readings and Test Samples, Physical Mold Tests, non invasive Inner-Wall infrared scanners, Manual Readers, Laser Scanners for Foundation Beams, Leak and Moisture Detection scanners, Air meters,  and Toxic Mold Sensors.

Types of Mold Identified by Mold Testing-

types of moldThe first type of common mold found in the house is the Aspergillus Penicillium. This mold causes allergies to the people exposed to it, some are more susceptible than others. You can find this mold growing in places such as on food, decaying materials, soil and dust, and in the air conditioner.

Cladosporium is the next most common type of mold found growing inside. You can find this mold growing in dark green or in black color. It is powdery in texture and grows on fibers, glass, air ducts, dead plants, food and paint. This mold can cause pulmonary diseases, skin rashes, asthma and nail fungus.

You can find the next type of mold Memnoniella growing on cotton, wooden products, and paper. This mold releases toxins which are very harmful to the people and pets living in the house.

Stachybotrys is commonly known as the black mold. It is black, slimy and toxic in nature. It produces very harmful toxins that cause deadly diseases like asthma and cancer. It generally grows under the walls and ceilings.

Mucor is another common type of mold found growing in the homes and buildings. It is normally found growing on or nearby animal droppings and surrounding soil. This type of mold causes lung infections to the people who are weak and sensitive.

Alternaria, another form of mold, releases allergens which lead to allergic reactions like asthma, wheezing, hay fever, cough and other reactions. Mostly it grows on plants and soil.

Other types of mold you could find in and around your home-

There are a number of reasons to suspect that mold may be lurking in your home. The common signs of mold growth in your home include visual and physical mold, suffering from allergic symptoms and reactions, moldy smells…. Recent water problems such as flooding, leaking pipes, leaking roof, or anywhere else excess moisture is present are all typical causes of mold growth. Most of the time the majority of the mold cannot be seen as it is living in walls, under floors, in wood panels, drainage areas, in crawlspaces, in attics, ductwork, behind wallpaper,…

This is one of the reasons that it is so dangerous as by the time it is finally noticed, lets say growing on the outside of an interior wall, there is usually a massive mold growth in the underlying affected area. This type of mold infestation would require a professional NYC mold removal company. The NYC mold experts will quarantine and seal off the entire affected area from the rest of the building, and employ high pressure ventilation systems. The mold removal experts have to wear body suits, helmets, and breathing apparatus to protect them while cleaning, neutralizing, and removing all mold damaged materials.

Please note: The residents of the home usually leave the home during the eradication.

NYC Mold Testing:

mold testing NYCMold Testing Services

The mold testing process utilizes the mold samples and data collected during the initial mold inspection. Mold testing helps to confirm whether you in fact have mold growing inside your home or building, the type(s) of mold found in and around your building, the levels of mold spores present, etc.
Professional lab scientists who have experience in analyzing mold samples can lead to a more effective mold remediation process.

It is always a good idea to hire a highly qualified mold inspection professional that works with independent laboratories. This helps to remove any conflict of interest with the confirmation of the data and samples collected by the NYC mold inspectors.

Our mold tests are conducted in an independent laboratory, both before and after the completion of the job to insure the elimination of all airborne mold spores.

The mold removal process-

Some people say if the mold growth is only covering a small area, usually 3-10 square feet or so, and is not toxic(if you can determine this, then you should be able to perform the mold redemption yourself. Well, this is not always a safe idea and for several reasons. The affected areas need to be completely sealed off as to prevent the spread of the possibly toxic mold spores from traveling and settling in other parts of the house as well as to prevent mold spores from stirring into the air and contaminating any other part of the structure. Once you have contained the mold, use a solution to remove the mold from the surface. Solutions available in the market for mold removal include Borax, Vinegar, Ammonia, Tea tree oil, fungicides, biocides, etc.

Proper ventilation needs to be used along with personal safety equipment and respirators. All mold damaged materials need to be treated and removed in sealed bags. HVAC systems will also need to be disinfected and treated.

Mold removal process involves a number of steps, which include:

– Wearing protective equipment

– Sealing off the contaminated areas

– Containing mold spores

– Setting up negative pressure and HEPA vacuums

– Removing the mold and treating areas with mold removal solutions

– Cleaning personal belongings

– Disposal of the mold

– Preventing mold from returning

– Final mold inspection, sample collection, and mold testing.

When it come to mold removal, it is always advisable to hire an established, licensed, insured, and certified mold removal and remediation service provider; regardless of how small of an infestation.
