If there is anything that resembles black mold in the home, it is important that you call us to inspect and verify, then immediately order a service for removal if proven.

Where does Black Mold Hide? – Black mold can grow and form in any place that is wet and warm for a very long time. But the most common places in houses that grow black molds are where they are out of sight and out of mind. It is common for a leak to happen in a vent or a back part of a closet. If there’s any water damage, it’s possible black mold to grow. Though black mold requires up to two weeks to fully culminate, the odds are that you don’t have black mold if it’s just been a damp puddle for a few days.
