Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
SERVPRO® of Douglas & Otter Tail Counties is a trusted leader in mold mitigation and remediation services. Mold becomes evident when there is water damage or excess moisture in the environment. Mold spores can colonize and become visible in as little as 48 hours and will spread quickly to other areas of the structure.
Most mold infestations are symptoms of a water leak or exposure to high moisture levels. Leaking roofs or water lines can cause mold growth and cause significant damage to your property if left untreated. The source of this moisture must be identified and repaired, or the mold can return after the remediation process.
Our technicians are trained and certified in applied microbial remediation by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. We have the equipment and protective gear necessary to handle your mold problem. When you need help remediating a mold infestation, you can trust the professionals at SERVPRO® of Douglas & Otter Tail Counties to restore the mold damage, “Like it never even happened.”
