Reidsivlle, NC: What is Mold?

Basement Carpet Mold Hero Mold Company Reidsville NC

Basement Carpet Mold

Mold an ancient fungal organism that acts to decay dead things into its elementary components.  Some of these components it uses as energy for growth and leave the excess to the soil to provide food for developing plant growth.  This is helps to recycle dead life into new life outdoors but in the home or business it’s dangerous to our health and damages building materials.

Most of us recognize while walking through wet woods strong earthy smells and spotty patches of fuzzy growth colored black, blue, green, yellow and others as signaling mold at work.  For mold to develop a colony, it needs moisture, warm temperatures and dead organic material for food- all of which are ample in forests and oftentimes homes.  Many common species of mold, found indoors, grow quickly- requiring only 24 to 48 hours.  Most health providers agree that no matter what species of mold is in your home it should always be removed just for the sake of your family’s health.

Trustworthy Mold Testing: No Useless Tests

How did Mold Get in my Reidsville Home?


Floating Mold Spores Hero Mold Company Reidsville NC

Floating Mold Spores

When a Mold colony is triggered to reproduce (what starts it is unknown), it’ll release countless mold spores into the atmosphere to float with air currents. Mold spores get in homes through open doors, windows, carried in or often hiding dormant within original building materials.  A mold spore is a self-contained organism only needing that generous source of moisture and access to dead plant life to develop and devour.  The most effective way to prevent mold growth in home or business is to control high humidity and sources of water leaks.

Toxic Mold: Strange Deaths in Years Past

In 10th century France, people were terrified when Religious visitors to the Saint Anthony shrine who shortly afterwards died in a horrific way- as described by a contemporary …”Wailing and writhing men collapsed in the street: others fell over and foamed in epileptic fits whilst some vomited and showed signs of insanity. Many of them shouted “Fire! I’m burning”. It was an invisible fire that separated the flesh from the bones and consumed it. Men, women and children died in unbearable agonizing pain.”…  The disease was aptly named “St. Anthony Fire”.

The phenomenon of St. Anthony Fire remained a mystery for centuries but we now know visitors to the Saint Anthony shrine ate rye bread contaminated with a black toxic mold/fungus that caused them to perish.  Subsequent toxic mold poisoned grain outbreaks popping up regularly across time and various locations have sicken and caused the deaths of thousands- at times destroying whole villages.  We have learned from these outbreaks to follow safe agricultural toxic mold/fungus procedures- that are still used today.  In the following years, people viewed Toxic mold deaths as a rare occurrence caused by contaminated grain.  Mostly, people felt safe inside their homes but this was to change…

The Energy Crisis & Indoor Mold

After WW2 (1945), there was a population explosion that pushed America to find a faster and less expensive way to build homes.  Building interior Plaster walls upon a wooden lath was a time-consuming process in home building.  First the wooden lath which is like a basket weave of wooden boards had to be built then Plaster had to be hand smoothed over it for the flat wall surface. The development of a gypsum board sandwich between paper backings introduced a prefabricated wall (drywall).  Drywall that could be nailed in seconds to the studs was explosive in the building industry- vastly speeding the process.  However, gypsum walls are porous as they readily soak up moisture during humid conditions and then dry very slowly. This holding of moisture is favorable to mold growth on the paper backings.  It’s long been known, that Black Toxic Mold finds drywall very edible and given a high moisture content will crumble it quickly.

The 1970’s Energy crises compounding the problem of building with porous materials susceptible to mold.  The energy crises resulted in tighter homes reducing air flow to the outside to save energy costs but at the same time it trapped humidity inside.  Several sources produce humidity in a home bathing, respiration from the living (3 to 4 cups exhaled a day per adult), clothes dryer and others.  Mold can develop in as little as 24 to 48 hours in a humid tight airless home.

When Parents Learned to Fear Black Toxic Mold

Ohio in 1994, 30 infants were hospitalized showing symptoms of weakness, oxygen poor- blue tinged and some were hemorrhaging the lungs. Some babies got better under hospital care and were sent home only to return a few days later.  In a short number of days, 12 out of the 30 infants sadly passed on.  Panic parents across the city anxiously awaited authorities’ investigations into the agent of sickness and death- some families even moved into relatives’ homes outside of the city.  Mystified Doctors requested help from CDC investigators.  Inspectors found the homes of these children were in a recently flooded part of the city and inside each home, black mold was growing close to where the babies slept.  

One of the doctors treating the infants remembered reading about 50 to 60 horses in 1940’s Russia dying of lung hemorrhage had been poison with black moldy grain. This seemed to suggest that Black Toxic Mold was the killer and indeed when the children were removed most got better. The passing years brought more instances of death or debilitating life altering illness that were attributed to Black Toxic Mold.  Homeowners now a days stress out at just at the thought black toxic mold could be poisoning their homes.

It might help to know that Black Toxic Mold is mainly found in abandoned previously flooded homes that are still holding some water.  Mold without water has no life.  

Recognizing Black Toxic Mold in Reidsville, NC 

There are over 20,000 species of black mold out of a million or more species of mold. Several black molds look and smell very similar. However, we know that generally the deadly Black Toxic Mold (Stachybotry chartarum) growth appears as a dense deep black with a greenish sheen that appears wet.  This mold needs to be soaking wet and takes a longer time to develop than other common molds 8 to 12 days versus a day or two.

Mold growth spreads in a spotty chain like pattern.  Black Toxic Mold holds such high moisture level that its less able to send pieces into the air unless roughly disrupted.  Dry Black Toxic mold looks like soot; easily blown about the atmosphere when slightly disturbed.   

Reidsville, NC: Where is Black Toxic Mold Found?

Black Toxic mold is normally found outdoors in dark damp depressions- recycling dead vegetation into energy for food.  Indoors, Stachybotrys chartarum will flourish in dark seldom visited areas fed by an active source of water.  For Example, the mold could lie hidden in an unseen plumbing leak under a sink, inside a wall cavity, beneath flooring, and inside crawl space.

Don’t automatically think a black mold is toxic as it may help to know: All molds can produce toxins but they don’t do so all of the time.  It’s been observed that when mold is eating and troubled by competing bacteria or other species it’ll be triggered to produce mycotoxins presumably to kill competitors but the process is not totally understood.  

Hero Mold Company focus is to provide you information needed to decide what’s best for your property. The estimate of mold removal services will detail what we’ll do, how long it will take and at the most affordable cost locally (we are always improving our costs).  We encourage questions at any time they arise but other than that we will not disturb you.

Reidsville, NC: Reducing Humidity Indoors:

Some steps homeowners can take to reduce the possibility of mold growth:

Let the sun shine in and dry up some of the room’s humidity.

Leave closet doors open to encourage air movement and alleviate still pockets of humidity.

Turn on the bathroom exhaust fans during bathing and leave on for about 30 minutes afterwards.

Use the exhaust fan while cooking on the stovetop to remove water vapor. Other pollutants are carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide with carbon monoxide being deadly in high concentrations.

Make sure the clothes dryer is vented outdoors- not in attic or crawl space.

If you see moisture on window panes, install a dehumidifier.

Keeping up home maintenance with frequent inspections will catch problems early on.

Health Effects of Mold

Reidsville, NC: Black Toxic Mold Worries

Just the possibility that Black Toxic Mold could be growing in your home or business can cause anxiety.  Some frightening reasons are:

  • Kids or other family members getting sick.

Black Toxic Mold- Symptoms

Stachybotrys chartarum mold, when producing mycotoxins, is poisonous to people and their pets. Its causes sinus infections, headaches, vomiting, lungs hemorrhage and rarely death.  This mold produces one of the higher concentrations of deadly mycotoxins than other species. Mycotoxins are transferred through the air and upon contact poisons people and animals.

A lesser known health cost of Mold growth in the home is damage it does to our sense of taste. When we sit for dinner, Food Odor molecules travel up our nose to mingle with our taste receptors to deliver a complex sense of flavor. Our taste buds recognize 5 taste impressions salty, sweet, bitter, sour and savory and our sense of smell discerns around 400 types.  Obviously, smell is quite important to enjoying a tasty meal.  Scientists theorize sense of smell accounts for 70 to 80 percent of what we taste.  Imagine all the cranky families living in mold troubled homes unable to fully enjoy once favorite meals.

 Mold Cost Insurance Help: Reidsville, NC 

Homeowners insurance may cover mold damage if it was caused by an “covered Peril”.  Covered Peril examples are:

  • A burst plumbing pipe surges a large amount of water into your home while you’re on vacation soaking carpet and walls. When you make it home not only do you see the water damage but you smell mold.
  • Appliances that use sizable amounts of water such as dishwasher, washing machine, air conditioner and water tank heaters leak water causing mold growth somewhere on the walls, carpet or crawl space.
  • Impact damage to the Roof during a storm dumps a stream of water into your home which was the beginning of mold problems.

Insurance Denial of Mold Removal Costs

Insurance agencies expect you to be a good steward of your property by conducting regular maintenance and common sense.  For example, regularly checking basement, crawl space and attic for excessive moisture problems.

Examples of Poor Stewardship:

  • Your 30-year-old roof has leaked into the attic for an unknown period of time and you discover mold growing on the rafters.  Its likely Insurance will decline to help pay for mold removal because the roof should have been repaired or replaced years ago.  Lifespan of a shingled roof is 20 to 30 years, depending on quality of the shingles and installation.
  • A small amount of Mold has been growing in the basement for several days and you ignored it because it wasn’t bothering you.  A short time later, you began to smell mold, remember the basement and go check it.  Unfortunately, the small amount of mold has bloomed across an entire wall.  The Insurance Agency will want to know how old the mold growth is and why you didn’t take care of when it was a smaller problem.
  • Flood damage requires an added flood disaster rider to provide assistance.

We do not intend to provide Legal advice- contact your Homeowners Insurance Agent to be sure about coverage.

Mail Order Black Toxic Mold Test Kit?

DIY Mold Testing Kit Hero Mold Company Reidsville NC

DIY Mold Testing Kit

Mail order black toxic mold test kits such as Petri-dishes have a terrible reputation for accuracy and the governmental agency CDC does not recommend them.  Mold spores are an ancient fungus riding air currents throughout our environment in countless numbers.

Without a doubt, every home or business have some mold spores floating around. They only need to land in a moist place to grow; eventually bringing sickness to loved ones and damaging property.

Consumers of Toxic Mold test kits hope the kit will tell them what species of mold and level of infestation.  Homeowners especially are desperate to learn if the mold growing in their home is toxic.  However, according to many independent studies like those conducted by Consumer Reports these kits have an accuracy problem.

DIY Mold Testing Kits Errors 

  • Mold spores coast on the breeze everywhere- we can’t stop them.  It should be no surprise that a mold test kit (small tray with nutrient) grows mold within hours even in a home without a mold growth problem.
  • On the other hand, if a Petri-dish mold test stays mold free, it won’t necessarily mean your home is problem free because the nutrient in the mold kit could be expired.
  • Kit inaccuracies, due to previous contamination, are often reported by consumer watch groups.  For example, Consumers have been warned of high mold counts when they were actually low and visa versa.
  • The severity of mold growth can’t be determined by the time it took mold to grow in the petri-dish.   Mold Species grow at different rates so the growth must be examined by a specialist to determine age.

It’s critically important to have the site inspected visually by a knowledgeable mold inspector to understand the severity of mold growth.

Reidsville, NC: Why Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Mold in Wet Crawlspace Hero Mold Company Reidsville NC

Before Crawl Space Encapsulation

Excessive Crawl Space Moisture causes mold growth, odors, wood decay, falling insulation. insect and rodent infestations and high energy prices.  Water vapor comes from the earth below and the world outside. Crawl Space Encapsulation is done to prevent the buildup of moisture and all the nasty problems that come with it.

A Crawl Space Encapsulation builds a protective envelope around the home, protecting it from the ground beneath and the world outside. Professional encapsulation stops water vapor, radon and Methane from polluting the living space. Plus, it prevents critters and insects from entering and thriving under your home.

Reidsville, NC Conventional Crawl Space Failings 

Conventional crawl spaces have operational vents situated around the foundational wall that are opened during summer to control humidity and closed during winter to prevent energy loss.  A vapor barrier is laid across the ground usually thin Plastic sheeting.  Fiberglass insulation sandwiched between paper backings is pushed between the floor joists to prevent energy loss. However, it acts like a giant sponge soaking up excessive Humidity, dries very slowly and when heavy with moisture it’s often found fallen.  This wet insulation is the ideal shelter and breeding ground for mold and insects.  Crawl Space Encapsulation is the most successful treatment aimed at preventing mold, mildew, insect infestations and energy savings.

Crawl Space vents in the summer are opened to remove humid air and expose the space to cross breezes.  Humidity will only lessen in the crawl space if the humidity outside is lower- which hardly ever happens in southern climes like North Carolina.  Crawl Space vents in cold weather are closed to prevent energy loss but these spaces are often so full of holes from plumbing and cabling that it’s a wash. Plus, in addition the insulation pushed between the floor joists is in most cases inadequate, damaged or missing and really doesn’t contribute to energy savings.

The conventional crawl space in the south needs constant upkeep to stop mold.  Normally, it needs regular replacement of fallen wet insulation, repetitive pest removal treatments, and trapping of wildlife for relocation. This makes the conventional crawl space a money pit.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Health Benefits

After Crawl Space Encapsulation Hero Mold Company Reidsville NC

After Crawl Space Encapsulation

Industrial studies have shown that 50 to 70% of air in our homes comes from the crawl space.  The Crawl space air is teaming with mold spores, nasty odors, dangerous gases and bacteria from insect and dead creatures. Contaminated air is pulled upwards into the home travelling with the movement of air out the attic vents.

Without costing you a penny, Hero Mold Company will check the air quality in your home.  Hero Mold Company, if necessary, will offer an affordable way to clean up the air in your home.

  • Level the ground inside the crawl space.
  • Remove damaged Bat Insulation from the floor joists.
  • Repair all damaged building materials.
  • A flexible puncture resistant barrier membrane laid to cover the ground and run partly up the crawl space foundation.
  • To seal out water vapor and gasses from the earth, special tape will be used to seal the edges and seams of the barrier membrane.
  • Crawl Space foundation vents and holes are sealed to prevent energy loss to the great outdoors.
