After the Rainy Days, what could come next?
We here at SERVPRO of South San Francisco City/ San Bruno are very coherent of Mother Nature’s pattern when storms come and go in the Bay Area. After a big storm, in as little as a day to a week, mold can start growing in places you least expect it. Within this time period, we receive calls from hundreds of customers in need of remediation, many for mold. It’s great that these customers are taking action to have preventative work performed on their home or commercial spaces.
If you have had water loss after a storm, in an attic, closet, crawlspace, or anywhere on your property, you should understand that mold has the potential to spore shortly after, and spread quickly. Rainwater has a way to seep and sit in a structure in places least expected, by means of a damaged roof, pipe leak, crack of a wall, or deteriorated sill. This can then breed the beginnings of mildew/mold on the exterior and/or interior of a building. This is why it is crucial, once the loss has been identified, to have the source repaired, and begin remediation as soon as possible. If not, you become susceptible to problems like the ones pictured to the right. If there is a sighting of growth, the likelihood of mold behind the layers of flooring/ceiling/wall is very prevalent. Take action now before it is too late!
