RestorationMaster in Corvallis, OR
In the event of water damage, it can often lead to mold growth within the home. Whether caused by a flood or burst pipe, excessive moisture and a proper feeding ground are all that are necessary for mold to thrive. Mold growth typically starts when the bacteria from the water meets building materials, such as drywall or wood, finally producing mold spores within the affected area. This not only affects your home; your family, especially those with allergies or respiratory issues, will suffer as well. RestorationMaster provides effective mold remediation services in Corvallis, OR guaranteed to eliminate all cases of mold growth while securing high-risk areas for the future.
As moisture accumulates within an affected area, porous materials, such as wood and drywall provide cellulose for mold to consume while growing. If not treated right away, the mold will release its spores into the air. This not only allows the potential to affect other areas but puts you and your family at risk for dangerous health effects. However, our technicians at RestorationMaster use powerful but safe products to effectively remove mold growth in all hidden areas within the home.
