Mold buildup post-water loss is one of the most common occurrences if water damage clean-up and repair is done improperly. Mold only needs 24-48 hours to begin growing when exposed to a concentrated area of moisture.

This photo is an example of a water-loss job handled poorly by a previous company, and the homeowner began to have mold building up along the walls and baseboards. SERVPRO of Lancaster East CA technicians arrived on scene and began to remove all affected areas, and utilized advanced drying equipment in order to remove any possible moisture before eliminating the source. After a source is removed, our team begins the remediation process to ensure the error was corrected, "Like it never even happened."

If you have mold buildup from a post-water loss job, call us today for an inspection!
