At the discovery of mold damage, you may be wondering what to do until help arrives. We strongly advise mold spores not be touched or disturbed after found. Mold spores are microscopic, and can easily spread to unaffected areas if not handled properly. Another great tip to implement after the discovery of mold, is to turn off your HVAC system. Ceiling fans and running air conditioning units are a culprit of spreading mold spores to unaffected areas of the property. SERVPRO of South Redlands/Yucaipa has a team of certified mold experts to ensure the mold in your property is removed, and doesn't come back.
