Sometimes a roof leak can be small and cause damage over time. Others can cause such a downpour that the ceiling falls in. In this picture, you can see where water damage caused the ceiling to cave and wet insulation to fall through. This also caused microbial growth to begin on the beams in the attic. You can see where the crew treated and sealed the spot where the growth was heaviest. It was left unattended too long by the homeowner thinking that it was superficial damages. Since the damage came through the attic, SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North crews contained the area to prevent heating and cooling escaping into the attic. In the end, the secondary damage due to microbial growth was minimal and contained to just one small room.
