Hickory House and Mold
This mold growth was the result of a plumbing failure within the wall of this home in Hickory. The moisture, along with the cellulose paper backed drywall provided the perfect environment for this large mold patch to proliferate. Appearances can be deceiving so our AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technician, inspected the interior of the wall corner and the above attic crawl and discovered a large infested area. Our SERVPRO of Catawba West specialists sealed off the contaminated area, removed the mold infested drywall while using negative pressure techniques to prevent the circulation of mold spores to unaffected areas. We deodorized and sanitized the opened areas, and installed several new sheets of drywall. The key is to fix the water source, inspect for hidden damage and mold growth, and then go through our tried and true remediation process.
