Mold, Mold, It Can Grow Just About Everywhere!

Mold can be found in the oddest places! When the hot water is plentiful and fast in arrival to the taps and showers, who goes and looks at the hot water heater?  Probably very few people.  Until an event happens, we tend to ignore these crucial appliances.  As seen in this before picture, a total break in a hot water heater isn’t necessary to create harmful issues.  This hot water heater was in a commercial building and was ignored until a chance inspection highlighted the mold which had been growing for some time.  A simple small drip allowed the floor to remain moist, and being inside a rather warm and humid room, the mold flourished. 

SERVPRO was able to remediate and fix the mold issue.  Should you find or suspect mold in your commercial building or home, call SERVPRO of Burke-Clifton-Fairfax Station today on (703) 250-6300.
