Flood Damage Can Lead To Mold Problems

8/22/2017 (Permalink)

Mold can be a growing problem in the aftermath of floods.

When the Huntsville area is hit with heavy rains, it sometimes results in flood damage to homes and businesses.  Basements are a common problem for homeowners.  Flood waters also enter a home or business through a garage or other entry door.  

SERVPRO usually fields lots of calls in our office after flooding.  Homeowners are anxious to get back in their homes.  Some call us for help.  Some call for advice.  And, unfortunately, many don't call us and simply try to clean up the water damage themselves. 

Those people often end up calling us later when they discover mold growing.  Mold grows best in damp areas where humidity is high.  Moisture in basements, walls, carpets and wood provide an environment for mold to flourish.

If your home or business suffered flood or water damage recently, please take the time to inspect the area carefully.  If you see mold or suspect mold may be present, give SERVPRO a call.
