This picture is a worse case scenario, water damage that's gone unnoticed. Sometimes we don't visit each room in our homes as often as others and this is a result of just that. Water came in through the ceiling from a slow leak in a pipe that eventually would have burst.
SERVPRO© of Mankato / Owatonna recommends doing a monthly inspection of your home. Doing a monthly maintenance check is the best thing you can do to prevent certain disasters from wreaking havoc in your home and your wallet.
This entire ceiling had to be removed and safely using a containment system to prevent any mold spores from traveling within the home.
It is our job to help with these difficult discoveries and you can count on SERVPRO© of Mankato / Owatonna to help in these cases.
If you see this in your home call the SERVPRO© professionals right away.
