The Best Natural And Non-Toxic Way To Get Rid Of Black Mold For Good
Black mold is also called Stachybotrys, and is a species of a toxic mold. It has a musty odor that is close to mildew. And as it’s name suggests, it is black in colour. Sometimes it may have a green or gray colour too.
Black mold can be very dangerous to your health. And even your pet too. Some symptoms of black mold are chronic fatigue, irritated sinuses, headache and vertigo.
Leaky sinks, pipes, roofs, flooding and water soaked areas can contribute to the infestation of black mold in your home. Some places that black mold flourishes best include your bathroom, carpet, ceiling and walls. Black mold grows almost anywhere, but grows more easily in moist environments.
One of the most effective ways to remove and prevent black mold is by using tea tree oil to spray and clean the infested area. It’s an essential oil, and also known as melaleuca oil or ti tree oil. This oil is known for also treating wounds, eliminating fungi, bacteria and viruses. So it maybe your best bet when it comes to non- toxic and natural removal of black mold.
