What Is Black Mold?

Drywall, on the other hand, is like a Petri dish. Mold clings and thrives off of it. Drywall is an ideal growth medium for Stachybotrys, the black toxic mold with high cellulose content. Almost every type of mold will grow on drywall in the right moisture levels, but Stachybotrys is another story. For your South Redlands/Yucaipa property, choose the professionals to handle this.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
