Causes of Black Mold Growth

Water Leaks: Roof leaks, appliance leaks, or plumbing issues might lead to moisture issues in your property. Mold needs moisture to grow.

Condensation: Poor ventilation, or lack of maintenance, sometimes leads to condensation. This can lead to mold growth in the bathroom or kitchen.

Flooding: Ineffective water removal after an indoor flood might lead to mold growth.

High Humidity: If the humidity level of your home is higher than 50%, mold will grow.

Our Black Mold Remediation Process

The longer that water or moisture is present on your property, the greater the chance of mold growth. Thus, it is important to get rid of moisture ASAP in areas designed to remain dry.

To do that, our experts will dehumidify your home or office using the latest technology and equipment. We also encourage you to enlist the service of a certified industrial hygienist to perform a mold test that we can study to formulate a restoration plan. Dry Out Systems DOES NOT PERFORM mold tests. Once we know the mold type and mold location from the test, we perform mold remediation services to ensure a safe place for you and your loved ones.

How Long Does It Take for Mold to Grow at My Home or Office?

In a dark, damp area with a humidity level above 50%, mold can grow within 24-48 hours. Once it grows, it takes only a short time for the airborne mold spores to spread throughout your home or office while being carried along in the vents of your HVAC system. If you fail to identify and remove the actual source of mold growth, it will keep coming back. Thus, expert knowledge and opinions are needed to ensure a safe home.

Is All Black Mold Toxic?

All black mold is not toxic. The existence of mycotoxins in black mold makes it toxic. However, these mycotoxins are not present in all types of black mold. On the flip side, all types of mold can be harmful to humans by causing rashes, red eyes, respiratory ailments, and more. That is why it is important to eliminate all types of mold from your property whenever it surfaces.
