Times are difficult for a lot of folks especially once they realize a handyman might not of been too handy when it came to fixing an issue with the heating ducts under the crawlspace of their home. 

We received a call about a heavy mold smell inside the home.  SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties sent their highly qualified technicians to find the source of the mold smell.  Upon inspection of the crawlspace it was quickly determined that the heating ducts had been detached.  This caused too much moisture under the home, which became a mold issue.  SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties provided a mold remediation to resolve the mold issue, and once the mold had been identified, we were able to provide the required mold remediation.
