What you can do until help arrives

In as little as 48 hours, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business when there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line. Mold can cause adverse health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property. SERVPRO of Denver West  has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem.

Where there's mold, there's moisture, and continuous moist conditions will lead to accelerated mold growth. Our emergency mold remediation services respond quickly to all mold removal requests as we understand there is no time to waste.

Until emergency services arrive, it's important to minimize contact with the mold as much as possible to avoid breathing in dangerous spores. If possible, close off the section of the home that is being affected, or at the very least cut off air flow to that area. Do not attempt cleaning or removing mold yourself, as this requires specialized equipment and chemicals.

Some materials such as drywall and insulation may become damaged beyond repair by the mold. While we do everything we can to salvage your belongings, we cannot guarantee that all can be saved. By contacting SERVPRO of Denver West at the first sign of mold, you can help ensure remediation of the problem before it becomes worse and begins to truly damage your home.
