Did you know that even the small amounts of water in your home can lead to mold growth? This means that a minor leak in your Jacksonville/Onslow County home, can lead to big problems.

To many homeowners a small leak seems like no big deal. It often times gets overlooked or just simply wiped cleaned. While everything may look dry, the problem sometimes is not solved. Overtime mold will become visible. Once this happens you should immediately call the professionals. Mold is dangerous and you should leave it alone. When those not trained in mold removal try to clean it up, it can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout the home. Microscopic mold spores are released when mold is disturbed. These tiny particles then circulate in your home.
