Can roofing issues cause mold?
A friend of ours noticed she had some low hanging trees which allowed for the squirrels in her year to hop from the trees to her roof. We all thought they were adorable and thought nothing of it. One day she noticed she could hear them inside her ceiling running around. That’s when it became a problem. She gave some animal experts a call to remove the squirrels and had a tree trimmer to trim her trees back some. The problem is she was left with a hole in her roof. Here’s where the story gets worse: She ends up forgetting to get the hole fixed. Not completely forgot but it wasn’t a priority like it was to get the squirrels removed. About 2 months pass and she notices mold in one of her rooms. She figures it’s the change of seasons and decides it’s nothing a little bleach couldn’t get rid of. She was right, but only for the moment. With time that rooms mold issue worsened which lead up to her giving SERVPRO a call. Turns out that a small hole in her roof had begun to mold and was causing more issues in her roof. SERVPRO not only professionally cleaned her room, but their reconstruction team patched up her roof!
