Never try to treat mold by yourself. just wiping a black spot will not remove mold.
One of the best ways to care of a mold problem is to not touch it until Smart Mold comes by and evaluates the extent of growth. Once mold is disturbed it can send a unhealthy and unnatural amount of spores through property which can accelerate the mold growth in a new area. Dealing with 1 mold issue is hard enough as it is, but have to deal with multiple issues can become hectic and expensive.
Trained staff in OSHA approved attire is the only way to remove bacterial growth. Depending on each situation we might use ammonium, hypoclorite, thymol, or sodium carbonite to eliminate all spores. We always offer our customers a complimentary fogging for medium to large areas to help penetrate all areas of the surface and air.
Exposure to Stachbotrys include:

central nervous system issues

high moisture, poor ventilation, water damage = MOLD
There are many different types of molds. There are 11 strands of bacteria that affect humans negatively. Black mold (stachbotrys) is the most common. Mold LOVES moisture and starts eating at whatever organic surface it is on such as wood, paint, paper etc. We always recommend keeping your humidity level at home under 60% to help prevent moisture build up. Many times a homeowner has a repair done in the bathroom and the bathroom vent was not plugged in, or new insulation is improperly installed which leads to poor attic ventilation. Always make sure you have a good warranty from whatever contractor you use.
