A few months ago my sister bought a 15 year old house. Upon moving in we noticed mold in different rooms. DTX Mold Inspection helped us to remove the mold in addition to work with the insurance provider company even though we were still unboxing! DTX Mold Inspection is the most caring firm I've ever dealt with and truly desires to aid folks in times of panic.

Facts about Stachybotrys chartarum

What is Stachybotrys chartarum?

Stachybotrys chartarum is a greenish-black mold. It can grow on material with a high cellulose content, such as fiberboard, gypsum board, and paper. Growth occurs when there is moisture from water damage, water leaks, condensation, water infiltration, or TXooding. Constant moisture is required for its growth.

Does Stachybotrys chartarum cause acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage among infants?

To date, a possible association between acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage among infants and Stachybotrys chartarum has not been proven. Further studies are needed to determine what causes acute idiopathic hemorrhage.

What if my child has acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage?

Parents should ensure that their children get proper medical treatment.

Is there a test for Stachybotrys chartarum?

At present, no test exists that proves an association between Stachybotrys chartarum and particular health symptoms. Individuals with persistent symptoms should see their physician. However, if Stachybotrys chartarum or other molds are found in a building they should be removed.

Stachybotrys chartarum and other molds may cause health symptoms that are nonspecific. It is not necessary to determine what type of mold you may have growing in your home or other building. All molds should be treated the same with respect to potential health risks and removal.

How Do I Get My House Tested For Mold?

There are several ways to get your house tested for mold:

  • Mold test kits. Do-it-yourself mold test kits can be purchased in home improvement stores or online retailers. To use these kits, you will collect samples by yourself and then send it to a mold testing laboratory where the type of mold present is determined.
  • Multiple mold tests. There are three types of mold tests: air testing, surface testing, and bulk testing. The amount of mold spores can change from time to time so it is better to test different parts of your home.
  • Professional mold testing. The best way to get your house tested for molds is to avail the services of professional mold inspectors. Hiring experts will definitely give you more accurate results.

If you could not see any visible signs but you think that there are hidden mold growth, a thorough inspection will be helpful.
