Mold Inspection and Assessment
Molds have the potential to cause health problems. The destructive, and sometimes toxic, dangers of hidden mold spores have gained widespread media attention in recent years. Fueling the recent rise in mold problems are recent Federal Regulations relating to energy conservation, which have changed the way houses are built in the U.S.
- New construction methods and materials create buildings that don't "breathe" as freely, trapping moisture vapors inside which may lead to mold problems.
- According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we spend about 90% of our time indoors but are not aware of the health hazards created by mold and other pollutants.
- Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
- Atlantic Environmental Services offers certified commercial and residential mold inspections and mold remediation services throughout Maryland and DC.
