During the night while everyone was asleep and not a creature was stirring, the toilet supply line  decided to take a dump. So throughout the night the supply line was leaking and water leaked out to the point were there was an inch of water throughout the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, and foyer.

SERVPRO was called and we dispatched Will and Ryan. When they arrived at the address they were surprised to see how much water there was from a toilet supply line. "How can it do so much damage?" They immediately took action and extracted up the water, leaving the customer a little satisfied. Will and Ryan ended up setting a total of 27 air movers and 3 dehus. 

The owner was thrilled and stated "This place looks amazing and you guys did a wonderful job." We got in and we got out and made it look "Like it never even happened."

Water damage can cause mold if not dried properly

The growing fear of mold is causing many states to rush to regulate indoor air quality, despite the lack of a consensus of scientific evidence linking mold to human illness.

Nearly half of all states are considering legislation that would regulate acceptable airborne mold levels. A second trend in legislation would require mold disclosure prior to the sale or lease of properties. This makes the person renting out or selling the property liable for future damages and fees that can be traced back to the presence of an organism that can grow to cover the surface of a ceiling in 24 hours, under the right conditions.

Owners and buyers and lessees may find it extremely beneficial and prudent to go ahead and have suspicious mildew smells or other signs of potential moisture problems investigated.

Contact your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional to help determine the cause of odors and to perform any necessary cleanup and restoration to protect your property. If a mold problem is discovered. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals can perform the remediation quickly and safely, adhering to nationally recognized standards.
