Yes, That Is Black Mold!


The idea of having black mold brings terror to the minds of many. I have had frantic calls from residents and homeowners that believe that they will die if they have mold. Seriously, molds are not all that uncommon in any Sacramento home to some extent.

Without getting too deep into the topic, let’s make a few things a little clearer.

Most molds are not deadly to the average healthy human. There are some that are worse than others, the color is not the important thing. If you have some discoloration cause from a moisture issue, get somebody in there who knows how to take care of the problem.

In many cases, it will be a matter of correcting the source of the moisture, cutting out the damaged area, cleaning up the surrounding areas and putting things back with new materials. Depending on the extent of the problem, there may be some extra precautions taken.

The important thing is to fix the moisture source: patch the leaking pipe, patch the hole, and fix the roof or whatever is causing things to get so wet on a regular basis. Too often I am asked to repair a moldy area only to find that the area had been repaired before. Nobody fixed the reason for the moisture damage!

Once you have the area cleaned up and painted in your Sacramento home, you will feel better about the whole black mold issue.You may want to consult with a contractor with years of experience in Sacramento with the removal of mold.
