Hot Water Line Mess
This is a photo of our customer's crawlspace. Don't let this photo fool you. That is not snow you see down there. Look closely and you will see that it is mold. How did this happen you ask? Well, a hot water pipe line running underneath the house in the crawlspace burst which caused hot water to flood the area. Hot, steamy water in a confined area with little to no ventilation is mold's favorite environment because the moist and humid air allow mold to grow rapidly. On top of that, the home owner did not notice the pipe had burst until about a week later. An entire week was more than enough time for all this white, fuzzy mold to grow throughout the crawlspace. Our customer's insurance knew exactly who to call to mitigate this mess. SERVPRO of Benicia/Martinez/Southeast Vallejo of course! And that is exactly what we did.
