Remediating Mold starts at the first sign of water not after a longer amount of “Waiting it Out”

Remediating Mold starts at the first sign of water not after a longer amount of “Waiting it Out”

So many people lose everything because they try to wait it out when it comes to the possibility of mold growing after a water damage event has occurred in their property. The belief, unfortunately, is that “Maybe it won’t grow”. Well, this belief can really cause damage if the water stays long enough.

Remediation is a process that cannot be explained enough so this blog will focus on why remediation is critical and saves you so much money in the long run. First, you should always anticipate that mold is going to grow when water and moisture are present for any amount of time, and you are not already equipped with a dehumidifier of commercial strength.

The best way to be sure that mold doesn’t grow in your home after exposure to water, is to call a professional mold remediator. When mold is present, it’s not always visible. The first sign of growing mold is a sweet smell. The spores can enter the air, and this is when persons who are sensitive to mold may be impacted.

Rather than wait it out, why not use the “What If” approach? This means ask yourself questions like, “Can I keep the windows open long enough to dry out this moisture?”, and, “Is this a lot of moisture or just a small amount?”. There is no formula for you to use when deciding to call a mold remediation company to save your valuables, or to wait it out and see if mold stays away.

You can pretty much guess that if you live in a warm climate like Florida, your home can sustain and keep mold more than if you live in a more arid climate like Arizona. In either case, the more porous your assets, the more likely they may be to hold and keep the mold spores if not treated or mitigated.

Being on the safe side and making good choices goes a long way toward preventing loss of property.
