Defense Against Mold Growth

7/25/2018 (Permalink)

It is important to start mitigation as soon as a water damage happens to avoid mold growth. Mold can start to become visible in as little as 24-48 hours depending on the conditions. Many times, water damages are not found immediately which makes it vital to respond to water damage as soon as it is found. Mold can be harmful to you and your loved ones, as well as, the building structure. Somethings you can do to fight mold growth: 

  • Keep the humidity between 30-60 percent
  • Provide proper drainage away from the building structure
  • Inspect plumbing and appliances regularly
  • Keep gutters and drains free from debris
  • Inspect windows, doorways, roofs and other areas where water may enter
  • Don't leave it, respond to all water intrusions immediately
