Although many people think that their houses and apartments are free from mold, almost every home has it. This type of fungus can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors, but their favorite places have a lot of moisture and temperature approximately between 50 and 100 degrees F. Mold grows spores, which can spread through the air, water or physically. When the spores land, if the conditions are good, they’ll start a new colony. Some types are highly toxic and can seriously affect people’s health.
We would like to give you advice on how to detect the black mold in the house. There are two simple ways, with nose and with eyes. Mold has a distinctive odor, which gets stronger as it spreads. Visually, in the beginning, it’s just a few black dots, here and there, but soon these dots will increase in size as the mold reproduce. The colonies can be found on the ceilings, walls, and floors, under the wallpapers or behind cabinets.
The best way to fight the mold is to keep moisture low by maintaining good air circulation. If the infestation already happened, the object with the mold should be completely thrown out from the house. In other cases, there are products specially designed to prevent spreading or to destroy black mold.
