Some refer to mold as "Mother Nature’s great recycler;" they say this because mold is a critical component to our natural environment. But as we know mold by any other name is still mold.

Mold doesn't take long to go to work. In as little as 48 hours mold can grow in your home or business creating havoc and headaches.

Mold should be addressed properly, with the right equipment and the right training. Our Seattle SERVPRO team is IICRC certified and experienced to help mitigate your mold problem.
