Hurricanes, tornadoes, and even heavy winds can cause property damage and side winds bringing in water to your home. We all know that mold can cause significant health challenges for children and adults alike. The damage that mold can do to your home is just as dangerous as the damage it can inflict on your health.

Around your home, there are plenty of materials and surfaces that exacerbate the growth of mold. Fabrics, wood, and paper are some materials that mold feeds on and destroys. Your wallpaper, carpet, floorboards, drywall and ceiling tiles are just some of the materials that can fall apart when mold is involved.
