How SERVPRO of Central Glendale Handled This Mold Problem

2/9/2022 (Permalink)

Mold can grow in moist places like under the sink. That's what happened here in this Glendale home.

Mold can grow anywhere and everywhere! 

Dark, moist places like under the sink, in the back of a closet, and even where the water heater is can all be perfect homes for mold and mildew to grow colonies. That is exactly what happened to a local Glendale homeowner when she began to smell something foul under the sink. She cleared the space for a better look, and that's when she noticed a small leak coming from a pipe. Water from the leak had seeped down and caused mold to grow at the bottom and along the walls.

When SERVPRO of Central Glendale's mold remediation technicians arrived at their scheduled appointment, the project manager investigated the mold growth under the sink. He advised the homeowner to first call a plumber to fix the leak. The project manager explained that the mold problem would continue if there was still moisture, even if the mold remediation crew removed what was already growing. 

After a plumber was called in and the leak under the sink was fixed, our mold remediation techs got to work immediately. Since the mold did not grow beyond the small area, it was easier to remove it. Our SERVPRO of Central Glendale mold remediation experts began to build a small containment around the kitchen sink, guaranteeing that any mold spores would not escape the area. From there, they begin to cut through the moldy wood. Equipped in head-to-toe PPE suits, they professionally removed all affected areas, leaving no trace of mold behind.  

During the mold removal process, the technicians ran our air filtration equipment that cleaned the air within the surrounding area. They knew cleaning the air assured all mold spores would be eliminated. It also helped get rid of the unpleasant smell taking over the kitchen. After the mold remediation process was complete, the grateful homeowner thanked us for helping her get rid of a big problem. We were happy to help!
