Black Mold and Health Issues in Potomac, MD

Black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum) gets a lot of play on the news and for good reason, it is a dangerous toxin that can be found in many Potomac homes. We at American Home Services are concerned for our neighbors' health, so we want you to be aware of just some of the problems that can occur:

  • Aggression and other personality changes Mold testing and mold removal in Potomac, MD
  • Nose bleeds
  • Low blood pressure
  • Blurry vision
  • Jaundice
  • Recurring infections

You need to be extra careful if you have elderly or children in your home, as they are more likely to be affected by the allergens in black mold spores. It is important to have mold removed as soon as possible. The longer that a person is exposed, the greater the chances that they'll be impacted.

We've talked about black mold, but all colors of mold can have a negative impact on your health and the structure of your home. You may even have different colors and types of mold at the same time.

The longer you are exposed, the greater your chances are of becoming ill. We can perform mold removal in your Potomac home at any time, but the quicker we start the better. There is a reduction in the time it will take, the amount of money it will cost and the impact the mold growth will have on your family.

"I hired American Homes Services to perform mold remediation on a full bathroom. Because of the extent of the mold problem, which I confirmed with other vendors, I asked them to gut the entire bathroom (removing not only the affected drywall, but all the drywall as well as the tub, toilet, vanity, mirrors, ceiling fan and all tile). Gutting the bathroom made remolding easier and less expensive. Plus, American Home Service did not charge me anything extra for removing everything. From start to finish, they were responsive and easy to work with. Pros all the way!"
