SERVPRO Removes Mold from Quarryville Workshop

11/29/2018 (Permalink)

Mold takes root in moist spot on a wooden ceiling.

Mold is never good news for anyone. We here at SERVPRO know this, but we are here to help!

In Quarryville, we received a call about a workshop with mold growing on the wood of the ceiling (pictured).

If left untreated, not only could the repairs cost the owner more than the mitigation, but it also could have significant impacts to their health.

The following are a few facts on mold and how to help control it.

  • Mold is a necessary part of our environments ecosystem. Without it, organic matter would not decay and breakdown. However, our homes are not where we want to see mold!
  • Mold needs 3 things to flourish: moisture, an organic food source, & the right temperature. In this case, there was moisture in the wood at the right temperature, leading to the aforementioned growth. 
  • Mold only needs 24-48 hours to grow! So, if you notice moisture anywhere it is best to dry it QUICKLY!

If there is mold in your home, shed, or anywhere on your property, call us at SERVPRO of Western Lancaster & East York @ (717) 665-1270. We will remove it "Like it never even happened"!
