Most new homes come with all kinds of bells and whistles and are more energy efficient than homes have ever been. However, studies show that homes built in the last 10 years have more mold issues than ones built in the 1950's. Some things have improved, but air quality has gone down. No matter the age of your Calvert County home, you should have a home inspection done, including one for mold. The experts at American Home Services can work with you to keep any mold growth from increasing and actually remove it from your home entirely.
Our highly-trained professionals are equipped with the latest tools, such as an infrared camera to help detect mold. We want your home and family to be safe and will work with you to start a remediation process immediately.
Mold releases spore into the air, where they can be breathed in. There is a long list of health ailments that can be caused by breathing in black mold. Here is a small list of potential health concerns:
Although older people and children are the ones most easily affected by mold spores, anyone can fall ill. You need to call the experts at American Home Services immediately, so we can begin removing the allergens and irritants in your home.
Mold only needs high humidity to begin growing, so a flooded basement or crawlspace isn't necessary. You may notice musty odors at first, but within a day or two, mold can spread, releasing allergens into your home's air, negatively impacting your family's health.
Mold removal and remediation can become costly and time-consuming the longer it goes on. In addition, the longer you wait, the sicker your family can become. Many of the illnesses associated with mold spores can be reversed, but some can become permanent if they go on too long. Our professional team of experts looks forward to working with you to clean up your mold problem, so call American Home Services today.
"Kurt is a joy to work with. This mold came about at the same time my husband and I found out we were pregnant, and he worked with us on pricing by telling us things we could do ourselves to get the costs down. He is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject matter and very responsive to all the calls we made to him both before and after the work (we are now having some potential mold issues elsewhere and Kurt has responded to every call we've made). He has referred us to other honest, knowledgeable contractors to help us solve some of the issues we continue to have (unrelated to the work Kurt did). His prices are extremely fair. Finding out you have mold in your home is really upsetting, but the good news is that Kurt and his team are reliable, smart, trustworthy and responsive."
