Water damage and mold-two sides of the same coin

7/21/2020 (Permalink)

Mold in walls SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta can help with water damage and mold remediation.

We consider water damages and mold to be two sides of the same coin.  The mold jobs that we remediate are just water damages that have gone on for too long.  The problem usually comes when they find out that the pipe behind their drywall or under a sink behind supplies had actually been leaking for a long time.  Behind the drywall is the perfect home for mold…once you introduce that moisture to whatever spores might be behind your walls, the mold springs to life and begins to grow.

In many cases, we will recommend that you consult an environmental consultant.  These consultants will come in to assess your mold situation.  They will take samples that will let you know how much mold you have compared to natural levels found outside your home and they can also identify the specific types of mold that were found in their testing.  If it turns out that the tests show that the levels of mold are elevated, the consultants can put together a scope of work for remediation.  Once the scope of work has been prepared, now would be the best time to contact SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta.  We will send a trained technician to your home that can provide you with an estimate for removing the mold.  We never charge for our estimates and we can explain the whole process to you while we are on site.  

SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta is locally owned and operated.  We are your neighbors.  We can help get you back "Like it never even happened."  Call us at (805)963-0606.
