Having mold in your kitchen is actually pretty common. Because of the kitchen sink there is a good chance that there is a small microbial growth. Most people do not check behind their refrigerator or dishwasher and you could have a problem on your hands. 

When there is a slow leak in a wall it can create mold growth inside the wall, the aftermath of this can be as large as the whole wall having mold growing. When this is the case, there may not be a distinct odor because it is trapped but once you open up the wall there is no denying its presence.

Water Damage

Water Damage Water Damage Mold growth from water damage

In any water emergency it is always best to call SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin as quickly as possible but understandably that is not always the case. Microbial growth can begin to occur in 72 hours after a water loss so you can imagine what one week after an initial loss might look like. 

For the times that water damage has occurred there are a couple things to do until help arrives:

  • Turn off the faucet or water valves if a pipe is leaking
  • Call SERVPRO

The initial time after a water loss occurs is very critical to minimizing the potential damage. Water works its way down and out so it can cover a wide surface area. If you ever find you are walking on a wet carpet, standing water on hardwood or discolored walls, call SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin at 925-426-2302.

A common occurrence at SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin is working in multi level commercial facilities. Majority of the time, the loss has gone on for some time before anyone has noticed. When this is the case, we will assess the areas where the loss occurred and do a further investigation to determine how far it has gone.

SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin handles many emergencies in residential and commercial buildings. The most common emergency we see is water damage. This can be due to a few things: leaky pipes, reconstruction accident, appliance leaks, etc. 

When there is an excess amount of water sitting on carpet SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin uses a truck mount extractor that will remove large amounts of water from the carpet and pad. While this is very effective, our air movers and dehumidifiers are still necessary to prevent mold growth.

Our main goal is to dry down and get back to normal using that method before we ever try to begin the demolition process. We know how scary this whole process can be and our goal is to provide you with excellent service and explain the process and how it works every step of the way.
