Mold Remediation Experts – San Antonio
Simply put, mold is a fungus that doesn't need light or photosynthesis to grow and thrive. It does need some form of moisture; you can find mold even in the darkest, dampest of basements or crawlspaces or in an attic with little to no ventilation. Mold spores are everywhere in the air, inside and outside, and become a nuisance to your home and your health when the mold spore count is elevated higher inside the home than it is outside.

We'll help you get to the root of the problem and eliminate the presence of mold in your home for good.
