Microbial growth discovered during "DIY" project.

During a recent "DIY" renovation of a master bathroom, the homeowner discovered microbial growth behind their shower wall. The homeowner immediately turned to the mold experts at SERVPRO of Tallahassee to help remove the unhealthy microbial growth they found. Our Production Manager Robert Philbrick was first onsite to assess the damage. He took detailed report, grabbed measurements, and obtained photos for our office staff to produce a line item estimate. Steve Irving Operations Manager of SERVPRO of Tallahassee quickly went to work to produce the estimate for the homeowner. Communication was made by our Office Manager Reba McKenzie, who sent estimate and hiring documents to homeowner. The homeowner quickly responded back with a commitment to hire, and within a couple days time, destructive remediation commenced. With the help of our Knowledgeable Production Technicians, and our proven remediation process, this bathroom is cleared of Mold, and the homeowner received Post Remediation Verification by a local Mold Inspector. Now this homeowner's DIY project is back on track.
