Mold is unsightly and often produces an unpleasantly foul odor, but that’s not the extent of the problem with indoor mold. If you or someone in your home suffers from asthma, mold can worsen the symptoms and even trigger dangerous asthma attacks. Molds can also cause allergy sufferers to experience wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. More dangerous is the fact that infectious diseases from molds can occur in people with weakened immune systems, such as those who are immune-compromised or immune-suppressed from illness or drug treatment.
If you suspect that mold is growing inside your home, contact a mold remediation company in Baltimore as soon as possible. A mold removal expert will inspect your home and locate the source of the problem so everyone inside your home can breathe easy. In some cases, additional waterproofing services may be necessary to prevent the return of mold and mildew in your home.
