What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.

BLACK MOLD-Call SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County

What is Black Mold?

Black Mold is a name commonly used for Stachybotrys chartarum.  It is one of the most infamous mold because it can grow in houses and affect animals and individuals differently.  

Stachybotrys is known as a toxic mold because it produces toxins called mycotoxins.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County and our highly trained technicians can help eliminate your mold issues.  

What Does Black Mold Look Like 

Black mold is a greenish-black gelatinous mold. It is usually slimy because of a wet layer on the top. However if a toxic black mold colony's water source runs out it can appear dry and powdery.

There are several molds that look similar to toxic black mold. If you find what you think might be Stachybotrys the only way you can tell for sure is to have a mold expert look at a sample under a microscope.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will perform an analysis and receive the results quickly within 24-36 hours and can begin remediation immediately!

Mold Sniffing Dogs-Really???

1/24/2018 (Permalink)

Across the country mold remediation companies are starting to use mold sniffing dogs.  We at SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County thought this was a joke but after investigation this is in fact being done.  There are six most commonly types of mold. Mold is never the same.  However, indoor mold can vary within hundreds of different types of mold and even have multiple types of mold in the same area. Making mold an “inconsistent” substance with unique odors based on the age of the mold, the type of content the mold is eating, etc. Each type of mold has a different odor and biological characteristic that is too much for these innocent creatures to detect. What is more, new types of mold are introduced every year so it is a challenge to educate dogs about the upcoming types. Once a dog’s job of sniffing is done, experts still need to spend a handsome amount on verification and further testing. The mold sniffing dog does not remove the need for SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County to be of service.  We are here to help with a mold analysis and then recommend any remediation by our highly trained technicians that may be needed.  We are open 24/7 and are HERE TO HELP!

Does Your Gulf Breeze Home Have A Mold Problem?

10/22/2016 (Permalink)

 

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
