Water Damages Lead to Mold Damages

12/21/2017 (Permalink)

When working on a water cleanup job, restoration and mitigation experts will always check for mold after they finish drying the space. Mold commonly occurs in a flooded home because the owner leaves the home alone to dry naturally. The flood damage leaves just enough moisture in the air that it attracts the mold spores flying through the air. Any time there is standing water in home or water in business, there is a chance that mold can form.

Speed is the key!

To avoid mold growth after a water damage call a restoration company within 24 hours. Mold needs about 24 hours to begin growing after a damage. Extraction of the standing water gets rid of most of the problem and air movers don't allow mold spores to settle.
