Black Mold in Collingdale, PA
Molds are very common in buildings and homes, especially after experiencing water damage. In as little as 48 hours, mold can begin to grow. Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery. Mold can cause health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property.
