How to Avoid Black Mold

avoiding black moldBlack mold, like all mold and mildew, thrives in a damp environment.  This is why keeping your roof in good repair is so important to the wellbeing not just of your house, but your entire family. By the time that you see black showing up in dark corners, spreading on the ceiling in the bathroom or down a damp plumbing wall, it may already be too late to save your drywall.

 

This toxic mold is so dangerous that it can cause serious health issues. It is very important to avoid contact. Your first line of defense is to keep your living environment dry, no matter the damp conditions of your climate. Regular roof inspections, at least twice a year especially in humid locations that suffer regular hurricanes and tornadoes, will key in your roofing expert to any leaks that have formed or replacing damaged roofing materials that won’t withstand another breath of wind, let alone hail.


When dealing with the black variety of mold, any sign of mildew is a big enough alert to know that you may have an issue. Check your attic consistently for any tell tale signs of encroaching moisture and roof repair need. Make sure your attic is properly vented. You may decide to install ridge vents for maximum aeration and drying conditions. Install dehumidifiers and keep them running until all excessive moisture is contained. Black mold in your home is a serious situation. Bleach is not the solution because when mixed, it intensifies the toxicity. In instances of severe neglect, entire homes have had to be burned down to prevent the spores from spreading and infecting the neighboring houses.

Molds are multi-cellular (consist of more than one cell) filamentous fungi usually having a fuzzy or cottony soft appearance when they grow in areas in your homes. They may be white, dark or in any color. They produce spores usually asexually and in large numbers which means they arise and inherit from a single parent. Asexual reproduction is the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms such as bacteria and fungi. They are light, resistant to drying and can easily spread through the air and contaminate any areas. More often, a moldy smell might be the only clue that there is a hidden mold growth away from your house. Never ignore mold odors if you can't see any mold or else this might be the main reason of illnesses within your family. You should thoroughly inspect your home before any mold problems get worse.
