Mold Damage - Tips from SERVPRO of West Hamilton / Oxford
Mold is born out of moisture. Whether water damage brought on from leaks, flooding, or even humidity, even a little moisture can cause mold to begin to grow in as little as 48 hours. Since time is so important in regards to preventing mold growth, our biggest tip is for you to ensure the drying process after water damage is done thoroughly and completely. This can be ensured by our professionals here at SERVPRO of West Hamilton / Oxford. After that, our tips remain fairly standard: be sure not to touch anything that might be mold and if you have a suspicion that you have mold call us for a diagnosis!
