Water damages can often cause mold growth in your home or business; therefore, it is important to have your water damage cleaned properly and professionally. Our SERVPRO of Northwest Bergen service technicians handle water damages every day and know prompt action is required to prevent mold growth. Mold is more likely to spread when an environment has been subject to moisture for a long period of time. If your property has sustained recent water damage for example from leaking pipes, it is vital to remove excess water and dry the structure quickly. Our commercial grade equipment and DryBook monitoring system will leave no doubt that the structure is clean and dry. 

If there is an ongoing moisture problem in the building, it is important to be alert for:

  • Visible Mold
  • Strong, musty odors
  • Excessive humidity
  • Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth

These conditions may require the expertise of a qualified Indoor Quality/Environmental Professional to inspect the building for mold growth and chronic water damage problems. We can help recommend companies that provide that service.
