Mold can cause extensive damage to a home in a very short period of time.  Mold historically only takes about 3 days to begin growing in ideal conditions.  The three things that mold needs to grown is a water source, optimal temperature, and a natural source of food such as drywall.  Once mold begins to take hold in your home it can be very difficult to get rid of it. 

The highly trained technicians at SERVPRO of Calumet City/ Lansing are trained in determining the water source that caused the growth of the mold.  Once the source is determined we will recommend the work that needs to be done to both remediate the mold and ensure that it will not return in the future.
