Mold Remediation Performed at a Local Lewisville Business
SERVPRO of Flower Mound is licensed with the state of Texas to remediate microbial growth in your home or business.

Our crews arrived onsite and performed a moisture inspection with our infrared cameras. These infrared cameras are perfect for when you need to see hidden moisture as they detect heat patterns and reliably measure temperatures to pinpoint the affected areas.
Once the affected areas were taped off to show the scope of work that was needed a small 1x1 exploratory section was removed in order to see what we were dealing with behind the drywall. We found microbial growth and informed the property manager on what the plan of action would be.
A remediation plan was put into place, our crew was very detailed in their process, and we achieved clearance to restore the property back to preloss condition. Check out our Before & After section to see the clean result!
