Is Mold Really Such A Big Deal? YES!
Molds grow best in hot, humid conditions, but they can also grow in drier areas if an organic food source is available, along with moisture and oxygen. A leaking sink or damp windows provide an ideal environment for mold growth. Any home or commercial property can quickly become infested with mold if a source of water is present. Mold can spread throughout a property in as little as 48 hours. Since mold can produce allergens and irritants, you should call us if you suspect you have a mold problem. Our expertly trained remediation technicians will inspect your home or business for signs of mold, and assess the best way to treat the mold growth. Our SERVPRO of North Rowan County/Salisbury team has extensive training, equipment, and expertise to handle all mold issues and restore your property to a healthy environment.
