- What is black mould?
- Why does the specialty floor need to be removed?
- Who is responsible for monitoring the drying equipment?
Black mould (Statchybotrys chartarum) is greenish-black in colour and grows in conditions where there is an excessive amount of moisture over a long period of time. Water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks and condensation in small, damp places like bathrooms all create a perfect breeding ground for black mould. Black mould releases microtoxins, a noxious substance that can cause serious health problems for humans and pets.
Nonporous flooring can trap water and prevent it and the materials under it from drying properly.
