Water Damage Secondary Damage Don't let this happen to you!

This customer thought they could handle their water mitigation themselves. They soon found out why you should always call us at SERVPRO of Portsmouth just to be sure. The customer started to notice a musty smell in the area where the water damage had occurred in about two weeks ago.

They called us out to take a look and we found high readings with our moisture meters on the base boards and walls of the affected area. We removed the base board do to the high readings and discovered mold on the base boards and the wall behind it. With the approval of the home owner we performed mold remediation to clean the mold and high level of spores in the air. We use specialized equipment and an antimicrobial agent along with certified technicians to perform this remediation.

Hopefully, you will never have a water damage, but if you do don’t think it’s too small to call in the professionals to take a look at it. You would not want to end up with a mold issue like this that is easily prevented just by having us come take a look at the water damage as soon as possible. SERVPRO of Portsmouth provides free estimates and we are willing to work with you schedule to provide minimal inconvenience. Please call us today at 757-397-3770
