Dealing with Mold Requires Fast Action

September 17th, 2012

When a water damage issue arises, immediate restoration action is essential. It can take as little as 48 hours after a water disaster for porous materials to produce mold. Taking proper clean up steps after an event is crucial. It is important to dry anything damaged by the water within 24 to 48 hours. Surface areas need to be cleaned with water and a detergent and dried completely. Porous materials, such as carpet or dry wall, may need to be replaced.

Professional help may be needed to ensure safe, livable conditions after water damage has occurred. While not always immediately noticeable by site or smell, mold can be potentially harmful to many individuals. Everyone is affected to different degrees, but mold can be extremely hazardous to the elderly, pregnant women, infants, individuals with respiratory conditions and individuals with compromised immune systems.

ServiceMaster Clean takes five steps to restore your home from water damage:

  • Inspection and assessment
  • Water removal
  • Anti-microbial/germicide application
