Mold Testing by Emergency Response Team
When walls and carpeted surfaces become wet and are not immediately dried, they become the ideal breeding grounds for mold. Often, the mold is under the surface of the flooring, and behind the drywall, so it cannot be seen. If you experience any symptoms of mold exposure or musty odors, it is important to call a mold specialist to test for mold in your home. Removing mold is not as complicated as it sounds when you call experts in the industry. Once we detect mold in your building, we can set to work to remove it!
