Microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. When warm, dark and humid conditions create an ideal environment, mold fungi grows–and spreads. Mold remediation is the process of containing the mold spores and restoring the normal balance.

Do You Have A Mold Problem?
Here are some things to consider to determine whether you have a mold problem in your home…
Airtight homes can experience mold problems in the warmer months when humidity and moisture gets trapped inside the house. Drafty homes can experience mold problems in the colder months when warm air from the living area condensates in attics, crawl spaces or basements.
Ongoing allergic symptoms is likely a problem with mold. Irritants cause sneezing, itchy eyes or skin, nasal congestion, runny nose, and coughing. If these symptoms get worse while you’re at home, it’s a likely indication of a mold problem.
This is not as obvious as it seems. Many people ignore mold or mistake it for dirt. With over 10,000 varieties of mold fungi, you might not recognize it. Some mold looks like black spots, others look like white threads. Other varieties of colors may not immediately look like mold to you. Even small signs of mold right now can indicate that greater damage is hidden beneath the surface.
Humidity And Condensation
Mold thrives on long-term moisture. Regional humidity levels in Maryland summers or airtight houses in the winter. Check indoor areas with poor ventilation (like basements, crawl spaces and bathrooms) where moisture can build up.
That unmistakable smell is mold. The nose knows when mold is hiding out of sight. Mold that has made its way into the ductwork may be out of sight, but definitely not out of mind.
Signs Of Water Leaks
Moisture conditions occur when pipes have slow leaks or suddenly burst. Plumbing damage may be indicated by stains or discoloration on walls, floors, or ceilings. Long term moisture can cause bowing and warping. Paint and wallpaper that is bubbled, cracked, or peeling could be caused by mold growth.
Basement flooding is a major concern here in Maryland, especially after a heavy rain or melting snow. The saturated groundwater makes it more likely that small leaks will turn into big ones. Standing water means mold could begin to grow within a few days. Excessive dampness in the home can also undermine the structure of the dwelling. At AA Action Waterproofing, we’ve helped people eliminate mold after even the toughest floods.

Should I Be Worried About Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus, and fungus is very robust and hardy. Since mold presents itself mainly in the form of spores, it gets around easily from place to place all throughout Maryland.
Sensational news reports warn about the dangers of black mold or toxic mold. Images of workers in white suits, googles and masks can be worrisome. No need to be alarmed! Any mold infestation in your home should be treated with caution. No matter what type of mold is present, you should arrange for its removal. The goal of remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials in a way that prevents the mold spores from leaving a work area.
Mold that has been killed, treated, or covered up can always begin to grow again if moisture reoccurs – even if the moisture is the high humidity of a Maryland summer. Dormant mold releases spores into the air and still triggers allergies. Mold remediation focuses on getting mold levels back to normal, natural levels. You can count on AA Action Waterproofing professionals to provide a safe and effective remedy.
