In Montana, black mold is a big problem for commercial property owners and they often have to seek professional mold remediation. Water leaks and moisture from other sources gets into drywall, insulation, carpeting, and other porous material and mold spreads and develops. Black mold can cause all kinds of health problems and resulting law suits from sick workers and tenants.  Apartment buildings, restaurants, office buildings, and all kinds of commercial buildings require quick removal of mold.

In many cases a visible inspection is all that is needed to discover black mold problems. In some cases however, the black mold is not so easy to identify and air testing must be done. Black mold can be in the ventilation system, under floor tiles and other hard to see places. The negative effects of black mold are still there, of course.

Symptoms from black mold include runny nose, sneezing, coughing, headaches, and various respiratory problems. People with weakened immune systems, the elderly, young children, and asthmatics may be particularly vulnerable. Black mold is a serious matter and should be dealt with accordingly.

EPA guidelines dictate the removal procedures for black mold. State and federal regulations are particularly strict for commercial properties. Restaurants often have black mold problems because there are many sources of moisture, including ice machines, walk in coolers, sinks, dishwashers, and pipes. Apartment buildings and motels often have mold problems as well.
