About Black Mold

Hopefully this reaches you before your "mold inspector" or home inspector enters your home, ask him to leave immediately if they make reference that you have the "Black Mold" or better yet, listen to his pitch. Then call me.

It's a scare tactic!!! 
Maybe their unintelligent...
Perhaps not trained correctly...
or very, very clever!

Did they get your attention?
Did they get the job?

Please keep in mind that professional limitations should apply.  Just because an individual sat through an 8 hour mold course does not make them skilled in addressing microbial assessments.

If it's too late and now you have become panic stricken with fear and anxiety due to your "Black Mold" assessment, please contact me at 815.341.0213. 


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) makes statement as to the following:


“Molds come in many colors including white.”Black mold" is not a species or specific kind of mold and neither is "toxic mold." Sometimes the news media use the terms "toxic mold" and "black mold" to refer to molds that may produce mycotoxins or for a specific mold, such as Stachybotrys chartarum. Molds that produce mycotoxins are often referred to as toxigenic fungi.”

From the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA):

The term "toxic mold" is misleading. Molds may produce substances called mycotoxins that modify their environment. Some of these substances are useful as antibiotics; but others are potentially harmful, especially if eaten. However, there is little evidence that breathing mycotoxins in mold-contaminated buildings represents a health hazard. The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine states, "Current scientific evidence does not support the proposition that human health has been adversely affected by inhaled mycotoxins in the home, school, or office environment." One mold, Stachybotrys, is frequently singled out. Initially thought related to cases of a lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis among infants, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has stated, "In a further review of our first investigation, CDC reviewers and an external panel of experts determined that there was insufficient evidence of any association between exposure to S. atra or other toxic fungi and idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis in infants." Current guidance of federal and professional organizations is that mold growth should be controlled in an appropriate manner, regardless of the type of mold

Note: An improper microbial assessment can and will cost you thousands of dollars not only in mold remediation costs, but consider the costs of re-installation of building materials to pre-existing conditions.
