Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

Drying Hardwood Floors

Drying Hardwood Floors

After a water loss it is very important that you trust the restoration professionals in properly drying your structure.

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

SERVPRO Franchise Professionals will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. They use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

Mold

Mold

Mold is ever present in everything we do. It is when the mold cause issues with breathing, smelling, and when it is visible that it becomes a huge problem.

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your College Park home or business. Then, mold can spread quickly through the property in as little as 48 hours. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, and it has the potential to cause other health effects. If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Fire Started in Family Room

Fire Started in Family Room

Fires never strike at a time that is convenient. It can happen at any hour of the day. This fire struck the homeowner in the middle of the night. It started in the family room and quickly spread thru the house to the bedroom on the second floor.

As you can see in the picture the fire ate thru the cord where the tv was plugged in.  Then it spread from the cord to the carpet and thru the electrical items in this room.

Damage caused by a fire is devastating for your family and your home. It’s a stressful and confusing time, so you’ll need a caring expert to guide you through this crisis. Our professionals will always treat you with respect and empathy, and we’ll always treat your home and belongings with great care.
