This photo shows the water in dark blue on a FLIR camera, that has migrated through the wall from a water leak on the other side.

When water damage occurs it is important to have a mitigation inspect the structure to make sure the structure is in fact dry. It is the water you can't see that can create further damage. Mold. Scary word when you don’t know what it is exactly. To the untrained eye mold or microbial growth as we refer to it can be very intimidating.

Water damage if not properly mitigated can lead to mold. If mold develops choosing the right company for the remediation is key in successfully removing the microbial growth and making sure no spores contaminate the remaining area. Did you know that microbial growth spores are so small that you can’t see them in the air? At SERVPRO of Iowa City / Coralville we use true HEPA Air Filtration Devices and Containment procedures to ensure you and your family or business remain safe. This catches 99.97% of airborne particles and the containment procedures ensure no cross contamination happens. We receive calls all the time where an untrained person has attempted remediation and cross contaminates the unaffected areas putting everyone at risk. At SERVPRO our technicians are certified and we continuously train to stay up to date with all the current procedures, technology, and practices that keep everyone safe. When you choose SERVPRO you can rest assure that you, your family, and your business are in good hands. Below is a link to the EPA’s “Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.
