When a Water Leak Goes Unchecked.

Mold showing on wall.

A homeowner in Highland Haven, TX was referred to us by a local adjuster for some mold that was found in their home. 

When production technicians from SERVPRO of Marble Falls, Lampasas & Brownwood arrived to meet the adjuster and homeowner on site, it was determined that this was a water loss that may have been going for some time. Fortunately, the mold/mildew was contained to a couple of closet areas in the home. 

With instructions from the adjuster, and permission from the homeowner, our production technicians removed and bagged the drywall, verified that there were no other issues with mold in the walls, and sprayed antimicrobial to prevent future mold growth.

Pro Tip: If you're planning to be gone for extended periods of time, it's a good idea to turn off the water at the main to your home to avoid possible water damage.

When water damage goes unchecked.

This property was on the market and empty allowing a pipe leak to go unchecked. We received a call from the realtor about water in the home at this property in San Saba, Texas.

When technicians from SERVPRO of Marble Falls, Lampasas & Brownwood arrived they found mildew/mold growing behind the stove. The affected drywall was removed and bagged for disposal. The wall and framing scrubbed and sprayed with an antimicrobial agent.

In addition, other walls needed to be removed due to water damage as well as carpet and pad in several areas.

Be sure to turn your water off at the main if away from your property for a while.
