Black Toxic Mold Inspection

Not all molds are harmful to humans. But there are a few molds that can seriously affect our health when we come in contact with them. One of which is black toxic mold, or more scientifically speaking, “stchybotrys chartarum” molds. Since it’s difficult for us to determine which molds are harmless and which are threatening, a mold inspection should be performed by professional companies if you encounter mold in your home. If your house is clean, then “passing” the mold inspection will make you feel more assured about the status of your home; if your house is indeed infected after the mold inspection, it’s better to know sooner rather than later.

If you think there might be black toxic molds forming in your home, call for a mold inspection right away. Black toxic molds are among the most malicious toxic molds, causing the most serious health issues to affected homeowners. Like other molds, black toxic molds grow in places with lots of moisture. So they are typically found in houses with water damage. Without a thorough mold inspection, these black toxic molds will slowly deteriorate our health by releasing mycotoxins. We will most likely be exposed to the mycotoxins through inhalation. These mycotoxins can suppress our immunity, resulting in issues like mental impairment, respiratory problems, and even organ damage in some cases.  Unfortunately, only after mold inspection, where experts examine the molds carefully under a microscope, can black molds be identified.

Through conducting a black mold inspection, specialists will find both the colony of black toxic molds and confirm where and how the moisture problems can be fixed. The places black mold typically hides are usually places where we wouldn’t normally look, such as behind walls, on ceilings, or beneath the floor. Professionals will use hygrometers to measure humidity, fibre optics to look into wall cavities, and moisture meters to find potential areas for black toxic mold growth during a mold inspection.  During a mold inspection, all of the rooms from the attic to the basement, including every corner and every crack will be examined. Black molds also have a musty smell, that the specialists will trace while conducting the mold inspection. Many may have the same question — Will the black toxic mold grow back after the mold inspection? Since mold need water and moisture to regrow, as long as the moisture problem is fixed during the mold inspection, black molds will cease to exist.

Since black molds are one of the most harmful molds, choosing an experienced, professional company for the mold inspection and removal is extremely important. Experts in mold inspection seal off the contaminated area and cleanly remove the black toxic molds without spreading more of their spores and mycotoxins in your house.  All staff will also be covered in HEPA breathing masks and protective suits during the mold inspection and removal to avoid accidental infections. At the end of the mold inspection, all black toxic mold particles will be vacuumed and completely effaced from your house. The very last step taken at the mold inspection site will be to seal off the toxic molds and dispose of them in specially designated landfills.

Mold inspections should be a priority for homeowners, especially those who live in humid regions or have experienced water damage. Just because you don’t see any black mold, it doesn’t mean there aren’t any hiding in your home. You can never be too safe, so get a mold inspection for your own health benefits.

Thanks for the professional work. We were going to deal with the mold removal ourselves and realized it was a bad idea. Your crew really knows what they are doing. Our place is spotless – and they even gave us some good household tips. I have no problem in recommending Matrix.


Robert Lee

Thank you for coming to the rescue. I didn’t quite know how dangerous asbestos could be, but I knew it had to be removed completely and properly. Thanks for the professional touch – I feel much better now that the house is clean and safe. I hope I never have to use this service again.
