Prevent Mold After Water Damage

4/25/2017 (Permalink)

Water in unwanted areas can cause considerable damage to your possessions and home.  When water damage occurs either due to a leak or natural disaster, mold can develop quite fast.  Preventing mold development is vital to maintaining clean and healthy air in your home.  It's essential to begin the drying process started as soon as possible.  After a water intrusion occurs, there is a 72 hour window to prevent the potential of mold growth.

Proper drying is important.  Many times a person will think that moisture was removed when in fact enough moisture was left behind to allow mold to start growing.  If a minor amount of moisture is lingering inside the wall cavities, behind the baseboards, in the carpet, or under the carpet padding it will likely be weeks before it all dries up, by that time the mold starts forming as visible spores on your walls.  Many mold remediator's and carpet cleaning companies will focus efforts on drying the room that flooded and neglect nearby rooms where water flowed hidden inside wall cavities and under carpet or even tile.  SERVPRO of Clifton's certified and trained production staff will ensure all effected areas are fried properly.

After you call your insurance agent to report the initial water damage, call SERVPRO of Clifton we'll quickly begin the water damage cleanup to prevent mold from developing in your home.
