Many homeowners underestimate the danger of mold, and especially the presence of black mold in basements and bathrooms. While most people think of it as only being unsightly, many types of mold are also hazardous to your health and your home. Mold grows indoors on wet or damp surfaces, such as wallpaper, ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation material, wood and drywall. It can start to grow within 48 hours after a flood or other water damage, and if left unchecked, can have serious impact on both your quality of life and your home's physical structure.
If you notice the presence of mold in your home, or think you may have toxic black mold, contact ServiceMaster Restore, Canada’s #1 mold removal experts. We are here to help remove mold and prevent potential health risks and long-term damage to your home.
