Got mold? Call the pros at SERVPRO of NW Portland before it spreads! 503-283-3658

With the consistently damp weather conditions, most Portland homeowners will have a run in with mold in their home. A small little spot in the shower that can be quickly wiped up is nothing to be too concerned about and is a part of general home maintenance. However, if you have detected spreading patches of mold, accompanied with a foul or musty odor that causes the area to feel dank and uncomfortable, it could very well indicate a much more serious condition. If you are faced with this particular problem, then it may be time to call in the experts at SERVPRO of NW Portland to ensure the caustic and potentially hazardous material has been completely removed.


The professionals at SERVPRO of NW Portland can help to determine if the mold in your home will require ‘containment’ and how extensive it should be. Depending on how severe of a problem the mold in your home is and what type of spores are found, the containment can be a relatively small area, and in rare cases, can sometimes require a temporary relocation during the remediation process.

The majority of informed homeowners take action while the mold is in an early stage, prior to spreading and becoming a much bigger concern.  The professionals at SERVPRO of NW Portland will quarantine the contaminated area so that movement cannot dislodge and distribute mold spores to unaffected areas of the structure. State of the art equipment will be set up to dry, repair, and treat the tainted space.
