Derry, New Hampshire (NH) residents are gearing up for the spring season that is right around the corner. Snow shovels and thermal socks will be gratefully packed away, and the kitchen table will become home to renovation magazines and “do-it-yourself” books for the daring and courageous handyman. With the spring season being a great time to finally plant the trees you said you were going to do for the last three years, or tear up the floors in your 1980’s style bathroom, it is also a time when people discover what could be lurking in their home-black mold! Luckily, your friends at Soil-Away are the black mold removal service of choice for Derry residents, and there is no project too big or too small for us!
Black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum, is a member of the fungi family that thrives in moist, dark locations where it can easily spread to neighboring walls, floorboards and structures that have low nitrogen and high cellulose content (i.e. common building materials such as drywall). While black mold has rendered the myth of being “toxic,” the Center for Disease Control (CDC) explains that the mold itself actually isn’t toxic, but can emit toxins into the air. So, before you go all-out “HGTV” style by smashing your sink and ripping up floor tiles, it is important to know if you have black mold lurking around. If you do find this slippery, greenish-black nuisance plaguing your home, contact the black mold removal service team at Soil-Away, where we will work with your insurance company to ensure a smooth remediation process.

It is later determined that the water damage was caused from a leaking pipe underneath the bathtub, which led to a breeding ground for black mold. However, what other signs do black mold present? Not all black mold is easy to find, and I’m sure you don’t want to wonder around your basement or bathroom looking for black mold spores. A few other signs to look for are:
