Water damage is one of the most common forms of property damage because there are so many possible causes. Your property may experience water damage from heavy rain or flooding or from a burst pipe, plumbing leak, or overflow. Any case of water damage requires immediate action because water can spread by getting absorbed into porous building materials. The affected materials are also at high risk for structural damage or mold growth the more water they absorb.

Fires are among the most devastating disasters that can occur within a home or building because they cause very serious damage and put lives at risk. It may be a relief to have the fire on your property extinguished, but the damage is not done when the fire is out.

Mold is a major issue in a home or building, no matter how much mold is found on the property. Mold growth typically occurs when there has been water damage or excess moisture because mold needs a source of moisture to survive, and it grows on materials that it uses as a food source.

At ServiceMaster of Montgomery, Frederick, Howard & Washington Counties, we can address mold growth in homes and commercial buildings in Columbia, MD with our mold remediation services.
