Mold on Inside of Drywall

Mold growth thrives in contained areas with very little air flow.  When excess water in drywall and wood studs is left for days or weeks, often times mold growth occurs.  At this point, the affected drywall should be removed and the wood studs require mold remediation procedures.  These steps are significantly more costly than drying them out when the flooding occurred.

Roof Leak from Tree Falling on House

This customer was gone on vacation when a heavy rain storm arrived.  A large tree in their backyard fell on to their roof and cracked several tiles, which allowed large amounts of water to flood their attic and ceiling.  The water damage was extensive in several rooms of the house.

Quick Mold Growth

When water damage or flooding is not addressed quickly, mold growth can occur and increase the scope and expense of the job.  This baseboard was only wet for 48 hours before mold growth started.  There was also mold growth in the wall cavity so the drywall needed to be removed, instead of dried.

Mold in Wall Cavity Behind a Shower

This customer had a slow leak water damage in the wall behind their shower.  When the customer saw their baseboard was wet and swollen in the room behind the shower, they knew to call the professionals at SERVPRO for help.  After removing the baseboard and finding mold, the experienced crew knew to remove the drywall to find the much larger problem behind the shower.
