SERVPRO is the local company to call on for all your fire, water and mold damages. SERVPRO of Washtenaw County does not rely on out of state employees or equipment to service our area.

We have a local dedicated storm team and a large loss team that can assist on large commercial losses. This guarantees that we can respond quicker than our competitor. We have the most equipment, resources and personnel of any restoration company in the country. When we are called out to your property on a loss whether it is large or small, we will be able to immediately start the mitigation or remediation process. Once on site we will prepare an exact account of what needs to be done, provide an estimate the cost for you and your insurance company.

Mold Remediation Mold is a four letter word Something lurking in the closet

Mold is the four letter word you do not want to hear. Mold can be found in the smallest or even the largest areas of a home or business. It can be caused by lack of ventilation, usually in an attic or crawl space. Mold can also develop in areas that are prone to excess moisture, like the basement or bathroom areas of your home and business. Many times mold will develop in an area that had a water damage and was not properly mitigated.  SERVPRO of Washtenaw County can handle all types of mold remediation. Our franchise has been remediating mold in homes and businesses for over 20 years. Call us if you suspect mold has developed in your home or place of business. We would be happy to help you out. 1-800-714-5341
