What do restoration companies do?

5/13/2019 (Permalink)

Restoration Companies are usually the first responders following significant damage to a home from floods and fires, water damage, sewage backup and other major events. The job of SERVPRO of Barron, Dunn, & Rusk Counties is to clean up the mess and to preserve and protect the home and its contents so that further damage will not occur.

From a catastrophic flooding event to a persistent plumbing leak, any water intrusion could lead to mold growth. Even high humidity that causes condensation on cold surfaces could be enough to trigger growth.

It only takes 24 to 48 hours from the time water is introduced for mold to start growing. Therefore, if you just ran across flood water or a plumbing leak with no indication of how long it’s been there, you may want to hire a mold remediation company to test for mold.  Luckily SERVPRO of Barron, Dunn, & Rusk Counties has trained and certified technicians to do this for your home or business. Give us a call at 715-643-7171 for all your restoration needs.
