How to Treat Mold Infestation

Although there are several types of toxic mold, a common variety in the home is sometimes referred to as "black mold." Greenish-black in color, it can grow on a variety of household surfaces and is common in areas with high moisture. Humans may come into contact with toxic molds through inhalation, skin contact or ingestion.

Suspect mold and fungus anytime there is a water leak in a home, whether it's a roof leak or a damp basement; always think of mold infestation following a flood or plumbing leak, especially if there is a musty odor.

    ServiceMaster is one of the best mots honest businesses in town. After my Dad experienced a groundwater flood in the bottom level of his house from the above-average rainfall in 2018, we gave Chad and his team a call. They were booked to the gills with clients who were experiencing similar issues, but they made time to come out and look, help us confirm the issue, and get us set up with dehumidifiers and air movers to dry things up. They were honest about their prices and flexible about payment, super responsive and just good down-to-earth WNC kind of people. Thanks so much ServiceMaster team!
