Mold, the importance of quick action.

Mold-the-importance-of-quick-action

Moisture intrusion that affects carpeting, walls and furniture should be dealt with as soon as possible. Even if the moisture exposure is limited and the intrusion does not cause substantial damage, it may still result in a mold problem

Any amount of moisture accumulation indoors can easily lead to mold growth.

Mold spores exist naturally in the environment. It is everywhere and can start to have exponential growth within as little as 24 to 48 hours especially in warm, humid temperatures. If there has been a leak or flood and water levels rise above the floor to the wall, mold has an excellent chance of growing behind the wallboard in which case the moldy materials should be removed.

Mold can spread quickly.

Mold can begin to spread in as little as a few hours. Germination takes place in 24 to 48 hours and spores will begin to in 3 to 12 days. It can take up to 18 to 21 days for the mold to become visible! Once you actually notice the mold it has already had over two weeks to spread throughout your home.

Hire a Certified Professional.

The most important thing to remember if you have had any type of water intrusion into your home is to act fast and have a certified professional test your home for elevated mold spores. A certified professional will have the expertise and proper equipment to stop and remove mold from your home quickly before it has a chance to spread any further.
