  1. I love how you point out that mold has been linked to many health problems and how important it is to have the proper training to remove it. My brother has been noticing a musty smell in his basement and he thinks he’s found some mold. We’ve been looking into calling down some professionals to remove it so we don’t take any unnecessary risks.

  2. Mold can compromise and weaken the immune system, especially if you are exposed to the mold spores. This mainly happens to people with asthma and allergies. Professional mold remediation can help improve the health of your family and even your pets by completely removing mold from your home.
