Do you suspect that your home may have been invaded by black mold? If so, it’s important to act quickly and get the help of a professional, like the team at LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration.

How Do You Know If You Have Black Mold?
Among the most frequent questions we receive is how to know if there is black mold in your home. One of the key factors in determining whether you have black mold in your home is color. Toxic mold is always dark black in color. If you believe you may have black mold in your home, it’s important to act quickly.
Black mold can cause serious health concerns and may create the following symptoms:
- Skin inflammation
- Respiratory issues
- Tiredness or lethargy
- Mental impairment
- Suppressed immune system
Why It’s Important to Remove Black Mold Quickly
The longer you are exposed to black mold, the further it will grow in your home, and the more damaging it can be to your health. Black mold is not only very dangerous, but it can also create serious structural damage to your home. This damage is especially harmful if it infiltrates the supports and beams in your home. Over time, mold can eat away at structures until nothing remains. When left unaddressed, the presence of black mold in your home will become more expensive and time-consuming to remediate than simply removing it immediately.
Do not attempt to clean black mold yourself. Stop and call in the professionals from LimeGreen Water Damage and Restoration at 818-280-3755.
Why You Should Not Attempt to Remove Black Mold on Your Own
Many times, when people discover the presence of black mold in their homes, they attempt to remove it on their own. This is often by using bleach. Unfortunately, bleach does not remove black mold, and attempting to treat it at home can have severe consequences. We cannot stress strongly enough how important it is that you do not attempt to remove black mold on your own. A proper containment system must always be utilized when removing black mold to limit exposure to the rest of the property. When removing black mold, it’s imperative that workers wear full-face respirators and full-body hazardous materials suits. These are just a few of the precautions we take when removing black mold from your home.
How We Proceed with Removing Black Mold from Your Home
Only a professional black mold removal company can ensure the mold has been completely removed from your home. If the mold removal and remediation process is not performed correctly, the mold spores will find other places to begin replicating. Furthermore, it’s imperative to ensure that all of the mold has been located and removed completely. In many instances, mold is located in crawlspaces, behind walls, in subfloors, or in ceilings. Only a trained mold removal company will know where to look to ensure that all the mold in your home has been located and properly removed. Upon inspection of your home, we will work diligently to identify all mold colonies to ensure thorough remediation.
