SERVPRO of East Portland Customer Review

“After my water damage threw out my whole house, SERVPRO has showed me a new world I did not know existed. Working promptly and professionally to save my home. I was impressed with how quickly the team jumped in, packed up my belongings, moved me out, demoed my house and kept in touch and informed with what was going on. After witnessing the disaster of my flood all it took was a phone call to SERVPRO to bring hope and calmness to my situation. SERVPRO was at the scene within an hour with machinery and a team ready to go on a Friday evening and worked non stop after hours and weekends.  I currently am not back in my home but look forward to seeing Moise and his team move my stuff back in when repairs are done with my house. :)” - Oscar L

If Water Damage Isn’t Taken Care of…

4/20/2020 (Permalink)

When water damages occur it is important to immediately call the professionals. If waiting too long, mold can occur. Some information about mold: 

  •  Mold... is a fungus

Like any fungus, mold sprouts from spores. Those spores are usually free-floating in your environment at all times, and only need a catalyst to grow into an active fungus infestation. That catalyst is water in any form, whether it be a puddle or humidity in the air.

  •  Mold... grows on organic surfaces

This can include food and plant matter, but you would be surprised what else is considered "organic." This includes the drywall of your walls and ceilings, as well as wooden floorboards and furniture upholstery.

  •   Mold... doesn't always start off black

Black mold can start as gray, green, white, or yellow, before darkening through stages to brown and then black.
