Black Mold Found In Florida Homes

Black Mold Found In Florida HomesBlack mold is found in Florida homes even if no interior flooding or water damage event occurs. All mold takes to grow, reproduce and form black mold colonies is moisture. With the high relative humidity in Florida, that provides mold spores enough moisture to grow in environments that are not heated by the sun where the moisture can be evaporated into the air. This is why you don’t typically find mold growing in areas hit highly by light, light evaporates the moisture mold requires in order to grow and reproduce. In the pictures below, mold formed in this condo just because the owners left for the summer and turned off their air conditioning unit. AC units are essentially large dehumidifiers. When warm air runs over cold coils, condensation occurs which draws the moisture out of the air. Even though the air is cold that comes out of your AC vents, it is also dry. Without a dehumidifier or an AC unit running in Florida, this moisture or humidity in the air will attach itself to Florida building materials and the mold spores will find the moisture and also feed. This will cause mold growth as severe as you see in the pictures below. If you have mold or see mold or mildew growing inside of your home or business, give us a call today!

Florida Black Mold Behind Kitchen Cabinets

Florida Black Mold Behind Kitchen Cabinets. A Tampa Bay homeowner found a small amount of black mold underneath the sink in the kitchen of their Tampa home. The homeowner first noticed a musty smell when going into the cabinet in order to get cleaning supplies for the sink. After the smell became worse and worse, the Tampa homeowner decided to remove all of the supplies underneath the sink in order to get a better look at what could be causing the musty odor. After removing all of the cleaning supplies and finding a small amount of black mold, the Tampa homeowner decided to call a team of mold removal professionals to assess the situation. Often times, when you see a small amount of mold, there is usually a lot more mold hiding behind cabinets or in walls, etc. It is always a good idea to call a mold remediation company before trying to remove mold yourself. As you can see in the pictures below, a small amount of mold can be seen in the cabinet of this kitchen. Once the cabinet was removed, a very large amount of mold was spotted behind the kitchen cabinet. Mold removal must be performed using special tools and under special containment. Many people who try to remove mold themselves end up releasing millions of mold spores or mold seeds to other areas of their home not currently affected by mold or black mold. If you see mold or black mold in your Tampa Bay home or business, give us a call today!

Black Mold Found In Florida Bathroom

Black Mold Found In Florida Bathroom. A Florida homeowner contacted I Destroy mold in regards to a large amount of black mold found behind a toilet in one of their bathrooms. The black mold was caused by a water leak which came from a leaking wax ring on a toilet. Over time, this water leak seeped underneath the tiles and affected adjacent walls to the bathroom. As you can see in the pictures below, it doesn’t take very much moisture at all for black mold to grow, form, reproduce and start black mold colonies. Black mold can cause health issues to those who are sensitive to it. If you see black mold or mold and mildew in your Florida home, we recommend contacting a team of licensed professionals in order to remove the mold properly. In many cases, Florida homeowners will try and spray the mold with bleach or wipe the mold with a cloth. This can cause mold spores which are tiny mold seeds to become airborne. Once mold seeds or black mold spores are airborne, they can travel to other areas of your Florida home and cause additional colonies to form. There is no need to spread mold and mildew or Florida black mold into other areas of your home or business. In order for nasty black mold to be removed properly, it should be put under a special containment and be removed from the air and from surfaces using special black mold removal equipment.

If you see signs of black mold or mold and mildew in your Florida home, give us a call. We are available to help you rid your Florida home or business of that nasty black mold once and for all!
