Mold is a common problem in homes, especially those with unseen water damage. In severe cases, mold can cause health issues and the destruction of your valuables. In such situations, you need professionals to get rid of the mold in your home. 


If your home has severe mold and you are looking for water disaster restoration services in Virginia Beach, trust ServiceMaster for the job. We will help you clean mold from your home and advice on the best ways to keep it at bay after removal. 


Mold can hide in unexpected areas, and it is up to you to stay on top of your cleaning and cut its growth. Here are unexpected places where mold hides. 


Inside Toothbrush Holders


When you place your toothbrush back into the holders, the water from the brush tickles down and collects at the holder’s base. Over time, this moisture buildup creates a favorable environment for mold to grow and develop. 


On Toys 


Plastic toys are a haven for mold to grow and multiply, especially if they harbor moisture over a long period. 


Carpets and Upholstery


Carpets and upholstery can hold moisture from unseen water damage. The moist and warm environment creates perfect conditions for mold to grow. If you have water-damaged carpets, call us. We provide water disaster restoration services in Virginia Beach, including restoring carpets after water damage. 


Other areas mold can hide include: 

  • Flush-mounted light fixtures
  • Pillows and mattresses
