Molds are found in every environment, and mold spores reproduce rapidly when moisture is present. An Institute of Medicine study found excessive dampness indoors encourages the growth of molds and other organisms, causing a public health problem. The EPA advised that the potential health concerns from molds are an important reason to prevent moisture problems leading to mold growth. It is especially important to clean up existing indoor mold growth to increase property appeal and return its value. If a property has experienced a water intrusion, SERVPRO® of Alamo Heights can inspect the damage to see whether moisture has penetrated materials or is allowing mold growth.

Prior to listing a property, should a damage event occur, timely response is the key to preventing further damage - Act within the first 24 to 48 hours of first notice of loss.

For more information, Paul Cochrane shares a video of Indoor Mold, studies done by the Institute of Medicine and Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

When choosing a water damage company, reputation is key.  SERVPRO of Alamo Heights knows that customer service is of the utmost importance and we value every customer that we serve.  Here is a real quote from a real customer:

"I know people are always quick to write when something bad happens, but I am writing to you because I had a great experience with SERVPRO®.

My house was destroyed last May from a crack in the line of the toilet. I was at work and received a call from my HOA that water was pouring out of my house.  I had no idea the damage that was being done to my house. I came home, saw the damage, and began to freak out. The ceiling fell to the floor in two places, I had no idea where to
begin. My insurance agent suggested I call SERVPRO® and my, am I happy I did.

SERVPRO® came to my house within an hour and assured me that everything was going to be ok. Throughout the entire process, I was updated daily on what was happening and what the next steps were.

We are still in the middle of construction and I was sad to see SERVPRO® go because their part was done. They were very helpful and always available to answer any of my questions.
I just wanted to say thank you for being a part of such a great company."

Unhealthy Environments

Intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result in mold growth. Water intrusions can result from storm damage, plumbing or equipment failure, long-standing leaks and poor humidity control. When water intrusions are not addressed right away the resulting damage can present increased risk of harmful mold growth. Some amount of mold spores are normally present in most environments. If the humidity and moisture levels in a water damaged environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply.

Organic materials found inside a building, such as wood, paper, drywall, and insulation, provide food sources for mold to flourish. Excessive mold growth can lead to indoor environmental conditions that pose a health threat.

Unfortunately, water-related disasters can occur at any time. The costs and effects of water damage are unpredictable, which is why it is important to begin the mitigation process in a timely manner. DON'T WAIT CALL US ANYTIME, 24/7
