Mold on Shelving

Mold on Shelving

Mold can be hidden for some time until it gets noticed. This picture shows a book shelf that was on the floor of a basement. The basement a few months prior sustained some water infiltration. The homeowner called upon another to mitigate their loss. Only two months later the odor was so pungent that they called SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington to help figure out where the odor was coming from. It took only minutes for our estimator to locate the source. It appears the bookshelf was never disconnected properly during the initial water loss. As a result, microbial growth took over the bottom of the shelving. SERVPRO was able to correct the lack of drying and kill the growth on the content. Although we stopped the growth the shelf was permanently stained from the mold.
