Water Damage Leading to Mold

When you experience water damage to your property you are likely thinking about many different things and mold growth probably isn’t one. However, if not treated properly, water damage will likely result in mold and should be a very serious concern.

Mold can grow after water damage within 48 hours after occurrence. One small mold speck can lead to many mold spores throughout your home or commercial property. These spores can travel through the air and can often lead to bad air quality and even illness. Once mold is present, it can only be a matter of hours before it starts reproducing new spores and starts to travel through the building. If mold gets into your air ducts it will often become present throughout your whole building through the HVAC system present.

The best way to stop mold growth in your property is to prevent this from happening completely, and the best way to do that is to call SERVPRO® of West Erie County to properly restore and mitigate your water damage. Our restoration professionals will not only fully clean your property/contents and extract all water from it all, but more importantly, dry it correctly! We use several air movers and dehumidifiers working together to keep the air dry and aid in extracting any moisture from the building.
