Mold is sneaky and can quickly go from a non-existent issue to a large problem in your home or business in as little as 48 hours. Something as small as a leaking water line or roof leak to something as catastrophic as flooding is all it takes to create a mold friendly environment. In addition, flood waters can unknowingly carry sewage or chemicals into your home exposing you and your family to viruses, bacteria, disease carriers (i.e. mosquitoes), and parasites. These environmental hazards, including mold, can cause negative health effects and significant damage to your home or business. Trust our team of highly trained professionals at SERVPRO of Gordon, Murray, & South Whitfield Counties to use our knowledge and expertise to contain and remediate your mold problem. Below are a few tips to keep your family safe if mold is suspected.
