Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
It is hard to imagine but in as little as 48 hours, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business when there’s a water intrusion, such as a roof leak or plumbing issues like a leaking water line. Something to consider is that mold is an allergen and for some, could cause health effects. Even if the mold develops inside the wall or a cabinet and is not necessarily visible, it can cause significant damage to your property.
The optimum way to deal with the mold for the majority of mold situations inside your home is to safely remove the affected materials. Protect your most valued investment and hire professionals for mold removal services. SERVPRO of West Covina has the proper certifications, training, over a dozen years of experience, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. If you are unsure if you have a mold issue or not, call or message us today!
