Never place cords in areas that receive a large volume of foot traffic, such as under mats or carpeting. Avoid tacking cords to surfaces with nails or staples.

Crawlspace with mold growing

Mold Is Not Always In Places You Can See - SERVPRO Knows Where To Look

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

Call SERVPRO of Richland County if you suspect mold in your home, or business.
