Water Cleanup Lincoln Village – Don't Delay, Avoid Mold Growth

When you notice a musty smell, it is probably too late. The growth of mold has already started. As long as damp or wet conditions remain, the mold is going to get worse. If you have a leak from a broken pipe, a leaky window, or even an overflowing sink, act quickly to reduce the opportunity for mold to establish a colony.

SERVPRO has seen many delayed water cleanup situations in Lincoln Village and surrounding areas. The owner had what was deemed to be a small water leak, wiped up the excess water and did not give it another thought. The owners did not realize that the moisture had spread to the walls and the floor underneath. Conditions were perfect for mold to grow. Moist, dark and warm.

Without proper drying, it was not long before mold spores had settled in and began spreading. Within 48 hours, mold can establish and begin growing.

Can You Eliminate Mold
Unfortunately, there is mold everywhere. Mold spores are wafting in the air around us. As soon as mold spores find a dark, moist, warm location the spores can multiply. SERVPRO can investigate your water leak, clean up the excess water, and dry the structure as well as the walls and flooring. Maintaining a humidity level at 45% or lower can usually limit mold growth. By acting quickly, removing water and drying the affected area, the cost to restore your home or office can be much less.

Removing Existing Mold
Difficult situations may require the removal of carpets, flooring, walls, and even structural elements. They are damaged due to long term exposure to damp conditions. SERVPRO can provide advice regarding the removal and restoration of these areas.

We protect other areas of the building by using negative pressure techniques. All materials are removed and disposed of before final drying and reconstruction. We are licensed to provide restoration services for full structural damage repair and rebuild.
