Replace Mold Infested Drywall and All Drywall Around It

When you have drywall in your home that is infested with mold, you’ll need to have all of it replaced, and you should most likely also replace a significant portion of the drywall surrounding it. Mold doesn’t always show visible signs of its growth, so it’s very possible that the mold has spread to other parts of the surrounding drywall even if you can’t see it yet.

If you only replace the drywall in your Miami Valley home that shows visible signs of mold growth, it’s likely that you’ll notice the mold growing again in the not-too-distant future. Our professionals will thoroughly remove and replace all moldy drywall and any drywall that is potentially infested.

Mold can cause health problems that span from mild allergic reactions to the development of asthma or worse. It’s especially harmful to children and the elderly, so it’s very important that it’s totally removed from your home.
