Black Mold Problem in Mount Vernon

Whenever there is a water problem you will be able to find mold. Water problems could be from flooding or maybe from a burst pipe. Whatever the cause, if it's not cleaned up quickly then your home will have mold damage within twenty-four hours.

Mold grows on the following items in your home because they are organic based.

  • Drywall

These are common places to find mold growth. If you see visible mold it's important to call SERVPRO of Scarsdale / Mount Vernon to have your home restored and mold free.
