In as little as 48 hours, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business when there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line. Mold can cause health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property. We recently had a local call of a property that had warm water running for over 2 weeks. Mold quickly spread throughout the apartment, SERVPRO of Shippensburg / Perry County was able to respond quickly and begin the mitigation process of setting up some negative pressure to extract the residual moisture from the air.
