Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
Mold feeds off water and humidity. That’s why attics and basements are often the first place where mold is found. It doesn’t take much time for mold to start growing in the right conditions. Because mold spores are microscopic, most people don’t know they have mold until it becomes visible. Mold is sneaky and unforgiving: it can damage your home and potentially negatively affect your health. Don’t try to remediate mold yourself. It’s a job that should only be handled by a professional. SERVPRO of Howell / Wall has the training, certifications and equipment needed to eliminate the mold and safely return your home to its original condition.
