Managing Mold in your Fullerton Maryland Home
Fungi and mold naturally occur in our environment. Especially in an area as humid as the baltimore metro area. There are over 100,000 kinds of mold that have been identified, and even though some forms add value to our lives, other forms are harmful. Excessive amounts of mold, types of mold, and levels of exposure may be threatening for some people.
Intrusion of water in your home or business can result in mold growth. Water can enter your home through storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures such as your sump pump, HVAC or Hot water heater. When your Baltimore basement floods, if not cleaned up properly and if humidity is not properly monitored, mold could start to grow in as little as 24 hours and will multiply.
