The homeowner called SERVPRO of Greater Highland/White Lake to come in. Our technicians removed all the affected flooring and drywall and encapsulated the structure so the reconstruction can begin. The homeowners were thankful for our crews, and gad we were able to help speed up the reconstruction process.

Mold can be harmful to you and your families health. If found, contact SERVPRO for properly remediation.

Unfortunately, mold has no boundaries.  For a significant amount of mold growth to occur, there must be a source of water (which could potentially go unnoticed) a source of food, and a substrate capable of sustaining growth. Most buildings contain plywood, drywall, carpeting, and carpet padding, as well as the building's furniture itself are considering "food for molds".  After a single incident of "water damage" has occurred and left unmitigated, mold can grow inside the walls and then become dormant until a subsequent incident of high humidity.

The right conditions can activate mold and could potentially have devastating results including substantial damage to the home and could cause people living in the home to have adverse reactions. Its important to call trained professionals if you discover mold in your home or business. Call SERVPRO Greater Highland/White Lake!
