In brief: Mold treatment
To find a company that will do mold remediation, google "mold remediation" then enter a comma followed by your zip code.
Look for a company that has good consumer reviews and possibly a member of the better businesss bureau. If expensive repairs are recommended get a second opinion. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous companies will offer unneeded services, especially if mold in in your ac/ hvac.

In brief: Contractor
Black mold is due to heavy moisture and usually is seen in the attic or in the walls under plaster board where water might have seeped in.
It is more common in humid climates. It is damaging to the structure of the house and may cause asthma and other illnesses. A contractor can determine the cause and offer suggestions to eliminate it and prevent further damage and further spread.
