Any home or business attic can fall victim to mold if a source of water is present. All it takes is a small water leak or excess humidity for mold to form in your home or business attic. During Michigan’s rainy season leaky roofs are very common, however, the important thing is to not let them go unaddressed. Mold can spread throughout your property in as little as 48 hours, so it is imperative that you frequently check your attic for signs of moisture or a leak in your roof. Mold can produce allergies and irritants to not only humans but pets as well, so if you suspect an issue, have an odor, or see visible growth call SERVPRO of Farmington and Farmington Hills to inspect your attic.

The mold remediation process we use is quick and efficient to make sure we stop the spreading as soon as we can. Here is a breakdown of the steps we use during mold remediation:

  1. Connect with the home or business owner and their insurance company
  2. Inspection and mold damage assessment of the structure and belongings
  3. Mold Containment (to prevent spreading to unaffected areas)
  4. Air Filtration & HEPA Vacuuming
  5. Removal of mold and mold-infested materials
  6. Spraying area with Antimicrobial (which is safe for humans and animals)
  7. Cleaning the contents in the space

If you believe you have a mold issue, call the trained technicians of SERVPRO of Farmington and Farmington Hills at (248) 427-1500
