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 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 Hershey / Harrisburg East was able to respond quickly and begin the mitigation process of setting up some negative pressure and dehumidifiers to extract the residual moisture from the air. SERVPRO of Hershey / Harrisburg East has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem and make it “Like it never even happened”!
