Richmond, Berea, Stanford, Lancaster, and Mt. Vernon: Mold Problems?

Mold can come in a variety of forms. It can surround many different surfaces in your home or business. Mold growth usually occurs when there's been a water damage. So, when any kind of water (flood, overflowing sink/bathtub/toilet, burst pipes, etc.) occurs mold is most likely not far behind. If it's been longer than 24-48 hours and there's been moisture present --mold can thrive. It's always best to take precautions when it comes to mold and wanting a top mold specialist.
SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties care about the proper restoration of your structure. If you suspect you have mold damage --whether it be spores, spots, or have other suspensions-- call the professionals! We want to make your mold damage "Like it never even happened."
