Black Mold Removal Chicago

After natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods, excess moisture and standing water often contribute to the growth of mold in homes and other buildings. Floods from hurricanes, tornados, or just an overwhelming amount of rain can cause rivers and streams to overflow their banks, and with almost every weather-related disaster comes too much water. During the flood, your first thought is for the survival of your family and pets. Afterward comes the cleanup. You don’t know where to start.

First, call your insurance company to see if your house and possessions are covered and how much of the disaster cleanup is covered. As you are occupied with recuperating from other aspects of the event, rest assured The Cleanup Guys, who are experts in black mold removal, will work diligently to take care of evaluating the damage done to your home and will execute the proper procedures to rid your home of the most dangerous type of mold: black mold.

You will need experts in black mold removal to make sure your house is safe and that black mold is thoroughly removed. Black mold is classified as a toxic mold which is referred to as black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum. It often accompanies water damage and can be extremely toxic to any human or other living creature exposed to it. Despite its name, black mold is actually is a greenish-black color, and it may have a bumpy appearance. Since it is caused by water damage, the top layer is slimy to the touch.

Not only can you see and touch the black mold, but black mold also has a distinct smell to it. It smells very musty and a lot like mildew. But if the mold is located in AC units or air ducts, the smell cannot be detected until the air is blown through it, causing it to spread throughout your home. Like other types of mold, black mold is very adept at hiding in unseen areas of your home, such as behind wallpaper, under sinks and other places that are normally susceptible to other types of mold as well.

Within a week after the flood or disaster, the mold will begin to grow. It will often force out any other mold that is already nearby, and take over its environment. Black mold comes with water damage.
