Black Mold Testing In San Jose

Most molds do not harm healthy people, but a small number produce mycotoxins which can cause significant health problems, particularly in vulnerable individuals such as children, the elderly, or those with immune deficiency or allergies. While not all mold that appears black is Stachybotrys Chartarum or toxic black mold, the only way you can find out is by professional inspection and testing to rule out other common mold species such as Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Alternaria, and Drechslera.

How Can I Tell If I Have Black Mold?

Black mold can be visible in your home in the form of small black specks along baseboards in high moisture areas such as the bathroom, kitchen or basement. However, it can also be hiding inside your walls, in the ceiling, in the basement or crawlspace, behind your washer, under the sink or carpeting, producing an unpleasant “musty” odor.

Health Issues Related To Black Mold

If you or your members of your family are suffering from the following symptoms, it may be due to toxic black mold poisoning:

  • Asthma

  • Sore Throat

Inspect and Test for Black Mold

When mold spores are rampant inside your home, your indoor air quality is negatively affected and can cause a significant health risk to you and your family. If the mold involved is toxic black mold, it is particularly important to have a professional inspection and testing. Trying to eliminate it yourself may exposure and release even more spores into your home. Our mold inspectors have been trained to locate the source of your problem, collect samples for testing, and then report on these findings and make recommendations for mold remediation by a contractor. When remediation is completed, Benchmark Environmental Engineering will retest to certify that your building is mold-free.
