It is difficult for business owners or homeowners to imagine a disaster worse than a fire as fires can quickly cause a devastating amount of damage and put your life at risk. Putting out the fire only provides so much relief as smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts are left lingering on your property.

You must call a professional as soon as possible after the fire is out to begin the restoration and prevent widespread permanent damage.

Mold growth is one of the most unwelcome sights in a home or business because there are often a range of issues associated with its presence. Mold does not grow without a moisture source which means that its appearance could be caused by water damage, and it slowly destroys the affected surfaces which can lead to major structural damage. The potential health effects are another problem with mold as exposure to the mold spores can lead to a range of allergic reactions and even infection. ServiceMaster of Baltimore provides complete mold remediation services to help locate and remove mold growth from homes and businesses in Baltimore, MD. Our technicians are IICRC certified to treat mold infestations and we work with industrial hygienists to ensure that all mold growth is discovered and removed.
Many people are familiar with the symptoms and behaviors of compulsive hoarding, but few fully understand why these behaviors occur in affected individuals. Hoarding is a mental disorder that is caused by severe anxiety, and this anxiety prevents those affected from parting with objects that they have gathered in their home. This inability to part with items quickly leads to extensive clutter in the home which creates very dangerous and unsanitary living conditions. Because hoarding is a mental disorder, it is very important to take an honest and delicate approach when helping a hoarder clean out their home. At ServiceMaster of Baltimore, we provide hoarding cleaning services to help those who struggle with hoarding in the Baltimore, MD area restore their homes back to safe living conditions. Our technicians can not only clean and restore the homes of hoarders effectively, but we also understand the nature of hoarding disorder and take an honest and respectful approach.
