Frequently Asked Questions About Black Mould
If you’ve found black mould in your home, chances are you have a few questions. Here are some we hear every day.
Also known as Stachybotrys Chartarum, toxic black mould is one of the most common mould strains found in Australian homes. It is popularly characterised by its distinct dark, greenish-black appearance and unmissable, unpleasant odour. It is mostly found in bathrooms, kitchens, ceilings and fabrics and thrives in warm, moist environments. Especially in cases of flooding, ongoing leaks or water damage.
Black mould is most known for its airborne mycotoxin spores that can cause severe respiratory discomfort. It is also associated with toxic black mould poisoning, which occurs when you inhale or are overexposed to black mould. Black mould poisoning is common for those who have an existing sensitivity to mould, allergies or a compromised immune system.
The mycotoxin spores can also cause asthma attacks, difficulty breathing and even vomiting, nausea and other respiratory complications.
When you frequently inhale black mould spores, you can experience throat and respiratory discomfort. Common symptoms may include headaches, coughing, sneezing, dizziness and fever. It can also result in skin, throat, sinus and eye irritations. Children, elderly family members and those with allergies or compromised immune systems are particularly at risk of mould exposure.
Odd, musty or damp smells are usually the first sign of mould growing in the home, even if you can’t see it. Look out for moisture or condensation build-up, leaking pipes, or a bulging or discolouration appear on painted walls. If there is severe mould damage behind the walls, it can also cause paint to crack and peel off.
Because mould usually grows in dark, damp places, be weary of leaking or water damage behind walls, roof spaces, attics, basements, under flooring or crawl spaces. Mould takes as little as 48 hours to grow and spread before you notice any visible signs. If you notice mould spreading or notice a damp smell, book your free inspection and we’ll take care of the rest.
Black mould loves warm, moist environments. Areas that are frequently exposed to moisture and condensation such as bathrooms and kitchens are common places for black mould to grow. You can also find it in ceilings, behind walls and even in fabrics, especially if these areas have been subject to flooding, water damage or an ongoing leak.
Understandably, there is no set price for black mould removal. Every property is different when it comes to the severity and type of mould, to the equipment required for effective remediation. Luckily, our free inspection process ensures that you receive a detailed findings report outlining everything you need to know about the extent and cost of remediation before we get started. No need to worry about hidden add-ons – we’ll give you transparent findings backed by a fair price.
There are hundreds of DIY remedies available to try to get rid of black mould in the home, but these only provide a temporary solution, allowing the mould to return again. Mould patches any bigger than the size of your hand will need professional removal. If not, the mould will continue to spread around the home, eating its way through furniture, belongings, and walls.
With so many black mould articles & DIY removal guides online from websites & bloggers, it’s hard to know who to trust. Most of these articles found online are not written by trained professionals and should be taken with a hefty grain of salt. At MouldMen, we provide a professional mould remediation service, meaning we address the cause of the infestation, not just the visible signs. Ensuring the black mould is removed for good, without risking your health in the process.
Mould removal can be stressful enough, so we make it easy for you to prepare for our arrival. All you have to do is open the blinds, put food away, move any furniture away from the affected area and take your pets with you. It’s that simple. We’ll take care of the rest.
