Where can mold grow in my business or home? See below
Once you discover water has entered your home, what do you do next? This is a scary situation that many people find themselves in at one point in their lifetime. A lot of the time when this happens, people try to take care of the problems themselves. While you are considering this, think about secondary damage that could happen when water is not properly dried out: MOLD.
There are many different types of mold out there, and no one likes finding it, whether it be in a crawlspace or on a loaf of bread. SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg and Edmonson Counties receives calls daily asking questions about different types of mold.
Black mold is the type most people are aware of. It can grow anywhere where it has warmth and is dark/damp. Some of the biggest places we see growth is in attics, basements, bathrooms, garages and crawlspaces. These are all places where there is moisture in the air, and it can sprout quickly. With mold being able to sprout within 72 hours of the water contact, it is important to keep an eye out for it. It is a good idea to set a monthly alarm on your phone to remind you to take the time to check these places.
