Mold depends on moisture for survival and grows in environments where it is dark, no air movement, organic food is present (paper, wood), and the moderate temperature is 68°-86°. Within 24-48 hours under ideal conditions mold will grow.
One way to prevent the growth of mold is to address any water leaks you may be aware of, or if you experience water damage, have it dried by us immediately so mold doesn’t begin to develop. Left untreated, mold can present unsafe conditions and cause damage to your structure.
Most people first realize they have a mold problem either by the visible presence of mold or by a strong musty smell. At 1-800-WATER DAMAGE® our skilled team will survey the extent of the damage and contain the area to reduce mold spores from spreading to other areas of the structure. By applying mold remediation techniques, combined with specialized equipment, the removal of mold growth is accomplished and the environment restored back to a healthy condition.
