  1. Mold, Algae, Mildew, Etc. 

If your home is getting lots of moisture, there’s a high chance that it is also accumulating mold. Not all molds hold the same degree of potential damage. However, ignoring a mold or mildew problem will not just cause damage to your home, but it can be dangerous to your family as well because there is a possibility that you can be breathing in toxic mold. So, even if you feel like wiping it down is enough, it most likely is not helping.

Over time, all the little details start to emerge when your home gets neglected. Bird poop. Stained walls, faded paint. Whether you want to have a peace of mind at home or desire to sell in the future, you may want to consider a deep cleaning solution if you…
