Timely Drying and Mold

Water from a small leak unaddressed for about 6 days

Have you ever returned home to find water on your kitchen floor or had your toilet overflow for no apparent reason? 

Seeing only a small amount of water the typical response to a situation like that is to simply mop up the water with some towels and go on with your day.  Once the water is gone we tend not to think about it again.  That is until a week or so passes and the affected area begins to smell.

What you may not have realized at the time is that while you were able to remove the water from the surface of the floor, some of it entered the walls and possibly even the cabinets.  This water then just sat there.  But stagnant water does not just sit.  It degrades, it softens materials, and it is the essential item needed for mold growth.

If you have a leak, no matter how small, Call the Professionals at SERVPRO of Spring Valley / Jamul and let us dry your property quickly to avoid those odors and the potential health risks associated with mold growth.
