Property owners may not deal with mold damage frequently, but luckily, we do. SERVPRO of Miami Lakes team tackles mold damage regularly. Our technicians are IICRC certified and are trained through continuous education every month. One of the most common types of mold damage we find in properties is located in entryways. Typically, entryways tend to gather moisture from weather, clothing, and shoes. Mopping up water right away and keeping mats clean and dry will deter mold growth. Be careful and keep an eye out for this problem. Contact our office to speak with a technician regarding your mold concerns.
