Mold has some beneficial uses; without it, we wouldn’t have blue cheese, miso, or soy sauce. Mold growth outside of tightly controlled conditions, especially in your home or business, is a different story. Spores are everywhere in the air, ready to feed on food sources like cellulose and textiles, as soon as they find a source of moisture. Once mold begins to grow, it spreads quickly, destroying property and causing health problems as it goes, unless remediation begins promptly. ServiceMaster of Baltimore provides high quality mold remediation services to residential and commercial clients in Annapolis, MD and the surrounding areas. All of our experts are fully trained and certified by the IICRC in mold abatement. We use only the most advanced products and equipment available to the industry to ensure your property is completely free of all traces of mold.
The Dangers of Mold
Mold is more than just a cosmetic problem; it causes physical damage to anything it touches. It feeds on the organic materials found in common household items like wood, drywall, fabric, and upholstery, which makes the damage even worse. As it grows, it weakens the fibers, leading to collapse. A rotting couch is bad enough, but a rotting support beam in the basement can cause the rest of the building to collapse. Mold also leaves behind a lingering musty smell that won’t go away with commercial fabric refreshers.
The health problems caused by mold are even worse. Spores can irritate eyes and lungs in people who don’t usually have allergies. Others who think they have a cold that won’t go away eventually find out the problem has been mold allergies all along. People with asthma and other respiratory issues experience worsening symptoms in the presence of mold. Treating mold at the first sign means fewer chances of health problems in the future.
