Mold typically becomes a problem indoors after mold spores land on a wet surface and begin to reproduce. Exposure to moldy environments can have harmful effects on your health. If you suspect that mold is growing in your home or business, it’s important to contact the professionals at Legend Disaster Cleanup immediately. Ignoring your growing mold problem will not only damage your home, but it may lead to serious health issues.
