How to Spot Black Mould
Mould can come in many different varieties, some more dangerous than others. Black mould is a particular dangerous form of fungi so it’s important to be able to spot in your home. Black mould requires moisture to survive so it is usually located in damp areas of the house, such as bathrooms or close to plumbing fixtures. It can also grow inside of walls, underneath floorboards and above ceiling tiles. It will often appear as a group of slimy splotches that are greenish-black or grey in colour. Black mould may have a musty odour.
Health Effects of Black Mould
Black mould can have many dangerous side effects including:
- Respiratory issues such as couching, difficulty breathing and asthma
- Lung damage
- Skin irritation
- Allergic reactions
- Circulatory and immune system problems
- Mental and neurological issues such as dizziness and disorientation
The negative health effects of black mould become more serious and potentially life-threatening with prolonged exposure so it’s crucial that you have your home professionally inspected as soon as you suspect a black mould infestation.
