Microbial Growth Requires Fast Action

Walls growing mold before mushrooms could grow. If you discover a water leak, we suggest you call our team at SERVPRO of Des Moines East and SW at 515-244-5511.

Hello Des Moines!

It’s Digital Marketing Coordinator Jacob, and I wanted to talk about microbial growth and why it is essential to act fast. Microbial Growth, Mold, is an umbrella term that includes all types of fungi or fungus. In homes that experience a water leak, a pipe bursting, or anywhere that has moisture; there is a chance that it will begin to grow. 

Once there is a moisture source, microbial growth will spread and be left untreated. These are not consumable mushrooms, and we suggest avoiding this area due to the severity of growth. If you see mushrooms growing, we recommend leaving it to the experts. When mushrooms grow, it means that the spores are everywhere.
