If moisture finds its way into your home, mold can quickly take over in as little as 48 hours. Mold can be a major health risk and cause signficiant damage to your St. Mary's and Calvert Counties homes. 

There are a few things to understand when it comes to mold:

  • Mold can present a greater risk to children, elderly people and those with respiratory problems
  • Mold is not always seen. Mold can hide behind drywall or under carpeting and can be noticed by a strong musty odor.
  • Mold can spread within 48-72 hours
