Before SERVPRO of Mercer County Arrives

There is not much you can do before SERVPRO of Mercer County arrives. Good thing we are faster to any size disaster! However, you can turn off your HVAC system and fans, so mold does not spread through the air. Other than that, stay out of the affected areas.

What Not to Do

More important than what you can do, here is what you should not do:
