Black mold is straight up dangerous.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, it’s a real threat in New Jersey.
It’s found in wet areas inside or out. Wet leaves in the gutter, moist areas in a leaky roof or basement. Places where it’s warm, damp, and somewhat humidity. Black mold isn’t necessarily black as it is dark green. If found under floor boards, ceiling tile, or roof boards, it’s time to call in an mold specialist or home inspector.
A home inspector can properly identify black mold, where it’s located or the places where it’s hiding out. Cornerstone Inspection offers mold inspection services to find and identify mold, before it comes a major problem.
It’s important to take care of black mold immediately, or there could be severe consequences.
If left untreated, black mold will continue to create toxins that could cause a variety of problems if ingested. From allergies like sneezing, chronic coughing, and stuffed nose and throat, to more severe symptoms like nausea, and bleeding in the lungs.
If you feel like your health has been worse since Superstorm Sandy, it might be time to get your home inspected for mold.
It could save your life.
