Mold can form and grow rapidly after a building or home incurs water damage. Within as few as 48 hours, mold can become problematic if not addressed properly. When not mitigated and removed, mold can affect the structural integrity of the home or building as well as cause potential health effects to those who have respiratory issues. SERVPRO of Southeast Milwaukee County have the necessary training, equipment, and protective gear to solve your mold problem. In addition, all mold elimination projects are assessed by a third-party to ensure that all mold is gone and gone for good.
