How do I dry water in my house?

If you go online and try to find the secret to drying your home after a water damage, spoiler alert: there is no secret.  Every water damage is different and requires varying amounts of effort, equipment, time, and experience.

Mold Remediation Get rid of mold with SERVPRO of Barrington /North Schaumburg If you discover mold in your house or office, SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg offers a professional response.

It can be a big surprise when you discover mold in your home.  What do you do with mold?  The answer is easy: call SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg to safely and professionally handle the mold problem.

Mold is not something to try and figure out by yourself.  Knowing what type of mold was found, how much mold is present, and where and how the mold developed are all elements of our response. 

Professional Mold Removal and Cleaning

Despite what you may hear, trying to remove mold on your own can be risky.  If there is a large amount of mold in your basement or attic, there are several precautions to take.  The first step is to create a barrier to prevent the mold from spreading. You also need to identify the source of the mold; is there a drip or source of moisture that is creating the spores?  Also, if you try to remove mold spores on your own, there is a great risk of the spores becoming airborne and spreading to other areas of the home or office. 

The best course of action is to call SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg to evaluate the situation and take the proper steps in eliminating the mold growth.

If you found mold, call SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg at (847) 526-0090
