Servicemaster is in most major citys and they can check for you. but if mould is found, you may want to think about leaveing for a day and letting them clean it up.

Some would consider Black mould to be as harmful to your health as asbestos. True a company like Servicemaster would be the ones that you would need in this case as Black Mould is the strongest of the moulds. I would not go anywhere near it, nor sleep in the same room with it as it is hazardous to your health.

I would seriously consider getting out of there while you're pregnant with black mould spoors in the air. It can kill you.

try move to relatives house first, then ask your husband to do it, or hire someone from the yellow page, that should solve it.

Hi Audrey, You will need to contact an environmental company to have the mold assessed and then removed. Don't do anything yourself or have any of your family members attempt to remove the mold as once you disturb it this is when it becomes dangerous. As long as it remains untouched it is not dangerous to be in the vicinity. A company such as PHH ARC Environmental should be able to help you. They have a branch in Regina that you can contact at: 306-352-8640. Hope this helps you and you can get your mold under control before it becomes worse. Something to keep in mind is that after the mold has been treated you may need to have some drywall replaced by a contractor as well.
