SERVPRO of South Miami Can Conduct a Qualified Mold Inspection for your Attic Space

South Beach Miami has a global reputation as a sunshine city that attracts tourists all year round. Miami's popularity as a spring break destination is a testament to its electric nightlife. Still, the city has numerous cultural districts, seaside strolls, and restaurants to keep all kinds of visitors happy. The history of settlers in Miami is mainly from Spain and Portugal who arrived on the south shore in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Some of the missionary outposts remain to this day and are the subject of eye-opening history tours. As a cultural center, the south of Miami offers all-day entertainment with state-of-the-art science centers, the Salvador Dali Museum, and the Cuban quarter, Little Havana.

Among the top attractions in Miami are its glorious white sand beaches, yacht clubs, and marina. From here, visitors can take boats out, jet ski or surf. The downtown region offers some of the most exciting nightlife in the United States, while contemporary culture is celebrated during numerous festivals throughout the year. Mardi Gras is the most popular festival, but Miami art-week runs a close second. During the summer months, Miami's celebration of street-art at Wynwood Walls is regularly recanvassed by some of the world's leading street artists. Tours through the Walls provide a contemporary history of street-art and its importance in developing this cultural center.

  • The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens are a center point for visitors to Miami and a must-see. The picturesque Renaissance-style villa is set against a backdrop of coconut palms and has a stunning 43 acres of meticulously kept gardens. The collection of antiques dating from the sixteenth century makes a tour more than worthwhile.
  • The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is a state-of-the-art education and entertainment center with interactive exhibits. Housed within the 25 thousand feet building are a gulf stream aquarium, planetarium, and laser show. Suitable for families and anyone with interest in science.
  • The Little Havana district was first established in the twentieth century when wealthy Cubans sought out Miami in response to Fidel Castro's seizure of power. The community has developed into a popular tourist destination with the food and cocktails of Cafe La Trouva among the highlights. 

SERVPRO Can Remediate Attic Mold in your South Miami Home and Replace Infested Insulation

Once water gets in the humid environment becomes a hotbed of microbial activity, which spreads quickly through semi-porous materials like insulation and sheetrock. One of the challenges of remediating an attic space is restrictive access points. SERVPRO has experience in remediating properties around Miami.
