    Within the past year Ive removed over 11,000 sq! ft! of drywall corrupted by black mold caused by flooding due to Florida hurricanes! Certainly you shoud be concerned, as it can cause respritory problems at the very least! No matter what anyone else tells you, I offer this! No amount of bleaching, or anti mold soultions will work for the long term! The leak needs to be addressed! The problem needs to be solved, or even in replacing drywall, black mold can return! With painted drywall, the mold is actually attacking the paper that contains the gypsum compound, and then extends out, onto the paint! If you cross section a piece of drywall, youll notice the Gypsum is unneffected! Certainly Black Mold is a natural occurance, but accepting its existence is not! Steps Id take immediately would be bleach solution spray, rubber gloves, probably a paper DUST mask, and clean up what is obvious! In the process have the leak issues found and solved! Also in that process,,, like it or not,,, remove as much of the drywall extending from the infected area as you can, and replace it! Im not a medical doctor, but I do know what concerns Black mold can,,,and should cause!Rev! Steven
