The Ohio Valley has a change of seasons that brings many different forms of weather. In February of this year Louisville had a very wet couple of weeks which resulted in a historic flooding situation of the Ohio River.
Some homes and businesses attempted to do the dryout on their own. The hot summer months that followed are causing SERVPRO to receive a high amount of microbial growth in places that were not dried out properly after the floods in February.
Last week we received a call from a customer that had gotten my name from one of our State Farm Agents and wanted us to look at an issue on an interior wall in his condo that had received a small amount of flooding in February. He took care of the flood damage himself and was unsuccessful in drying out the structure completely. Due to this moisture left behind there was a large amount of mold growth on both sides of the wall that had formed rather quickly. We stepped in and resolved the issue quickly, "Like it never even happened."
If you suffer a water loss it's best to consult a professional so you don't have to worry about mold growing in your home or business.
