Mold growth within the home is a common problem for every property owner. Unfortunately, once it starts, it has the ability to spread to other locations of the home or building without anyone even noticing. This is because it is most often located behind the walls, in the basement, attic, crawlspaces, and other hidden areas. It can also be difficult and dangerous to remove as the spores will trigger allergies and other negative health effects.

Our technicians have years of experience in completely removing all cases of mold, including the source. With our services, you can expect to have an improved indoor air quality as well as a relief of allergy symptoms.
Damages from Mold
While mold will usually start small, it will grow quickly if it has not been treated right away. It has the ability to disperse its spores throughout the air to infect other areas with a high concentration of cellulose and moisture.
This combination of organic substances creates the perfect breeding ground for the spores to harbor. Once developed, it actually devours its host, your building structure, as it constantly looks for a new source. The building materials that are at the highest risk for mold include: drywall, wood, paint, particleboard, and other organic materials.
