In the right conditions, mold spores can activate and begin growing at a rapid pace. In fact, mold can theoretically begin growing in as little as 48 hours after being exposed to moisture. Unfortunately, once mold begins to grow, it can cause some health effects and lead to further damage. At SERVPRO of Alexander, Caldwell, Burke and Catawba Counties, we understand that no property owner wants to deal with mold, which is why we offer full mold remediation services. Our team is composed of certified mold experts who have the skills, protective gear, and specialty equipment to make any mold growth "Like it never even happened."
