Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
Mold can be a very scary thing when found somewhere on your home or property. It can be found almost anywhere and thrives where there is moisture. Some common areas that see the effects of mold are bathrooms, garages, kitchens, and closets as they tend to be moist and dark areas. It especially thrives in dark areas and where there is very little circulation. It also can spread easily throughout because it can travel in the air and cling to new damp surfaces and multiply. Mold starts to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours, so timing is of the essence. By the time you see mold it is already of concern, it is best to leave it to the professionals to ensure proper remediation.
