I don’t even know where to start, what do I do first?

Everyone talks about mold, do I have to worry about that too?
Fixing the leak and drying out all affected areas in quick fashion helps stops the growth of mold spores. Mold likes warm and damp environments, that’s why you’ll often see it in basements, crawl spaces and sometimes attics. As part of our drying process, we use green- based anti-microbial products to inhibit any mold growth, in addition to SERVPRO’s proven mold prevention techniques and protocol. Time is key here, the quicker the areas are remedied, the less of an issue mold growth will be.
