Removing Black Mold
A lot of people ask me, how do I remove Black Mold? Well, the answer is you don’t! In most cases, Black Mold is very hard to remove without harming yourself and those around you! The better way is to call a professional that can remove mold safely and without cross contaminating your environment.
The problem with removing black mold is dealing with microscopic contaminates that if in-hailed could cause allergic reactions at best, and a toxic inflammation or worst. Controlling microscopic spores is hard and could prove to be very complicated. Professional restoration companies like EnviroCare use heavy duty air movers to create Negative Air pressure in the affected area to prevent cross contamination, as an extra precaution, a professional will create a barrier between the contaminate area and clean areas, again, to prevent contamination.
In every mold removal project you must use protective equipment. The EPA and CDC recommend using a respirator of N95 rating or higher. For best protection in toxic mold removal projects, please use a P100 respirator and a full HASMAT suit including the hood. Remember, black mold is invisible and will attach it self to your cloths or hair, if not taking the right safety precautions, you will contaminate your home with black mold spores that will colonize and become a problem.
