ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning by Skip provides Black Mold Removal and Remediation in Sycamore, IL

“It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.”

We’ve all heard this saying. At this time of year, this adage is as ubiquitous as the smell of burgers and brats searing over an open flame on the grill.

To some extent, the saying is true. When you step outside and you want to immediately change your shirt because it’s hanging with five pounds of humid moisture, it’s easy to believe “it’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.”

But, then again, if you’re standing in a burning building about to collapse due to fire damage, maybe a little bit of humidity wouldn’t sound all that bad amid the encroaching dry heat.

It’s all relative.

If you’re trapped in a burning building, you’re probably not going to be worried all that much about black mold, because black mold remediation is being taken care of all around you as the structure collapses due to intense fire damage.

Therefore, when it comes to black mold, it’s not really the heat OR the humidity that present problems by themselves. Rather, it’s the combination of heat AND humidity that produce, in tandem, an increased risk of black mold.

And trust us, black mold isn’t pleasant. In addition to being an unsightly growth, it’s also a persistent health hazard for the young and old and those with existing respiratory conditions such as emphysema and asthma. Worse, it can be positively toxic to those suffering pneumonia. Black mold spores can be circulated within a home’s ventilation system until it finds a nice, new warm and humid home.
