When it comes to dangers in your home, there is very little more toxic than mold. While mold can exist virtually anywhere on the planet and can have many excellent benefits to the environment we are going to be the dangerous strains that can be hiding in your home, and how to handle toxic mold removal if you need it.
Mold is very common in areas that have any amount of moisture, and in Florida there is moisture hiding everywhere.

There are five types of molds that are considered toxic:
In the state of Florida, the most common type of dangerous mold is Penicillium/Aspergillus because it germinates with 60% relative humidity where moisture is an issue. In most cases, you will not know that you have a moisture problem until you already have some mold growth in your home. Moisture issues can be caused by leaky pipes, holes in your roof, walls, etc. If you have recently had damage to your home or have been experiencing respiratory issues, you should contact a toxic mold removal company for mold testing.
The most dangerous toxic mold in South Florida is Stachybotrys which is more commonly known as black mold. If you find any amount of Stachybotrys in your home, it is crucial that you contact a Toxic Mold Removal Professional to determine the best course of action for your home.
