When water invades your home or business it can quickly become a more serious issue if the proper mitigation steps are not taken. Within 48 hours, moisture can cause mold to grow on many different surfaces such as paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, sheetrock and wood products. For obvious reasons that can become a major issue in your home or business and it will escalate quickly as well. 

Where there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line, there is potential for mold.

It is important to call a team of mold remediation experts for help when you discover mold in your home or business. SERVPRO of Weston/West Davie can arrive quickly and remediate any mold found on your property.
