- Moisture containment

Time is of the essence
If a water line broke under your house and soaked your living room carpet. You managed to dry out the carpet, so you should be out of the woods, right? Wrong. Mold typically takes 48 to 72 hours to take root, and once it does, it spreads rapidly. Be proactive, not reactive. Call SERVPRO of Lake Elsinore / Perris at 951-674-4006 immediately following a flood, sewage backup, or roof leak.
