All it takes for mold to begin to grow in your home or business is a small water leak. In some cases, excess humidity can cause a mold infestation to form in your home or business. Once formed, mold can quickly spread throughout your Franklin, NC, property. Not only can mold be very harmful to you and the people on your residential or commercial property, but mold can also cause significant damage to your property. Our SERVPRO of Nantahala has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle any size mold infestation you might experience.
