Sharing buttons:

hi I'm Rachel you to this and I'm going

to teach you how to identify a black


luckily then word black mold is pretty

descriptive and if it is in your

bathroom or something like that it's

going to be in cracks in places that get

moist so in your caulk or things like

that you may have a black colored mold

right there you know in every little

crack and crevice if it's underneath the

caulk you're not gonna be able to get

rid of it you're gonna have to pull the

caulk up and recaulk so if it's

somewhere like this you should be able

to scrub it off make sure to spray with

bleach water afterwards to get rid of it

and make sure it doesn't come back the

black mold that you really really need

to be concerned about is black mold that

may be in your walls or on your walls

and the way that you will identify that

is black mold grows in a pattern when

it's on a flat surface or on drywall

it'll be a bunch of little circles

almost looking like different sized

polka dots and they look slimy and

almost really really dark green that's

black mold the spores on that are not

good for you to breathe in if you have

black mold in your walls they have to

call a hazmat crew to come in and clean

it out it's really really bad if the

area where the black mold was is now dry

and the black mold has dried it will

look like soot and it'll be really ashy

looking and it may not be in perfect

circles anymore so just look for the

circle pattern it looks like a bunch of

different sized polka dots on a wall

that's when you need to be concerned

immediately spray it with bleach water

to kill that mold and then call a

professional I'm Rachel u2's this and

that is how you identify black mold
