Commercial water damage Commercial water damage.

This was a commercial job in town that had mold up to 7ft high! During quarantine, some property owners temporarily shut off their HVAC systems which created ideal conditions indoors for mold growth. If you think you've discovered mold in your property, give us a call to completely remove it for you! Let the professionals in green do the work!

Do you have commercial or residential water damage?

Did you know that within 24 hours of water damage a leak or flood can spread, and it will soak everything in its vicinity. This means that personal belongings, such as books and photographs, can immediately bulge and warp beyond repair. Soft furnishings and upholstery will soak through, and walls and floors will begin to absorb the water. Drywall, furniture, wooden doors, and window frames can swell. Plus, paint or wallpaper can peel or blister, and it can impact electrical systems. If the leak is in your roof, the water could come through ceilings and cause damage to insulation and wooden beams. Most worryingly, though, mold can begin to develop within this timeframe. Call SERVPRO Of NW Bakersfield for commercial or residential water damage.
