One particularly aggressive species of mold is black mold. Black mold is considered to be a toxin because it releases toxic spores after significant periods of growth. While it isn’t actually poisonous, black mold can cause breathing and irritation problems. Black mold has been known to cause neurological problems, brain inflammation and organ distress in very severe cases.
What’s worse is that Olympia's weather acts as a natural incubator for black mold growth. Black mold can become a relentless problem, and spread throughout your home, once it infiltrates porous materials like tiling, carpeting or drywall. You can recognize black mold by its black, greenish or grey hues. Like all household molds, you need a mold removal professional to recognize it before it grows too much to handle.
