Dangers of Black Mold

Water damage, even small leaks, can create a bigger problems with mold. Leaks can create mold if the atmosphere is right for growth and there are spores in the area. Black mold, especially, can be a health problem for children and the elderly. 

Water heaters don't age well and small leaks in a basement where you don't go often can create larger problems. Once mold takes hold in a damp, dark area of your home it can grow quickly. Bleach won't remove all the spores, so mold can regrow and continue to damage your walls, ceiling, personal items you have stored away in those nooks at home. Do not try to clean up mold on your own. You could, inadvertently, spread it farther throughout your home.

ServiceMaster of Buncombe County has the equipment to contain the mold, dry up the water, and clean up the area with products designed to kill the mold and keep it from growing again. Contact us at or call us at (828) 252-5330

    The ServiceMaster Contractors were always on time, called in advance, and were very polite and professional. I am generally satisfied with the work they did.

    Good company, especially Kim Burroughs.
