Black Mold: Professional Toxic Mold Removal

Black Mold: Professional Toxic Mold Removal

Posted on 09/15/2020

If you’ve looked into mold remediation for your home or business, you’ve probably heard the term “black mold.” But what is it about black mold that makes it worse than other mold and mildew infestations? Black mold can be harmful to you, your home, your family, or your customers, so hiring mold removal services as soon as possible is an essential health and safety protocol.

What is Black Mold?

Although there are several varieties of harmless black-colored mold species, the dreaded “black mold” label typically refers to the toxic fungus Stachybotrys chartarum. Stachybotrys releases spores into the air that can be harmful to humans and pets. It grows in damp, warm areas of the home such as crawl spaces and basements. Professional black mold treatment is necessary for black mold growth because of its toxicity and potential for future regrowth.

Black Mold Health Hazards

Black mold can be responsible for an array of health problems and allergic reactions. Black mold exposure symptoms can include headaches, fatigue, sneezing, coughing, a runny or stuffy nose, itchy eyes, rashes, sore throat, and wheezing. In more extreme cases, black mold exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, and bleeding. If you start to exhibit these symptoms and suspect you have been exposed to mold in your home or business, your doctor can provide a mold allergy or mold exposure test. Although any mold growth should be treated immediately, immune responses vary, and immuno-compromised individuals are generally most at risk. Toxic black mold removal is vital for the health and safety of all who live or work in a mold-ravaged home or business.

Awesome service! Mike has to be one of the nicest people I’ve ever dealt with. I was in a very bad hoarding situation with my moms apartment and from the first phone call Mike handled the situation amazing. He assured me that he will do whatever possible to help me during this very sad and stressful time. Even after a few bumps in the process with the apartment complex he went above and beyond and made it still work. His team members Dylan, Donovan and Paola were so professional, respectful and came on time every day during process. Mike and Dylan communicated with me throughout the few days and even made a trip to our storage unit with many boxes. The best decision I made. I HIGHLY recommend Mastertech Thank you so much Mike, Dylan, Donovan and Paolo.

Having to deal with mold remediation services is never ever a fun thing. It is stressful and confusing...especially if you are buying a home. Eric Green from Master Tech made every effort and beyond to make this process as easy as possible for my daughter and I. Absolute professional surpassing my expectations by miles and miles. . I don't ever wish this situation on anyone.... However, if you find yourself in it do not hesitate in reaching out to Master Tech. Eric, thanks again! We are almost in our new home.!

These guys are the best. As soon as you call Eric to set up an appointment, you can tell that you are talking to a seasoned professional. His team remediated mold in my basement and crawlspace and did a very thorough job. As i was concerned about mold dangers related to my pregnant wife at the time, they explained the precautions and their safety procedures. They truly stand by their warranty. When I had a recent plumbing leak, Dylan (foreman) and Donovan (both super knowledgeable and helpful) came out free of charge to inspect and test if the leak caused any new mold growth. They answered my numerous questions and exen helped me carry my heavy dehumidifier to a better location. All these guys care about customer service and clearly work hard to ensure they're adding maximum value.
