Did you know? Prompt water mitigation is vital to avoid mold growth, which can be visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours under certain conditions.  The faster the water is removed, the less chance of serious damage or excessive mold growth will happen to your home or business property. 

Follow these tips to help prevent mold growth in your home or business: 

  • Keep the humidity between 30 and 60 percent.
  • Provide proper drainage away from building foundations.
  • Regularly inspect plumbing and appliances for leaks.
  • Keep gutters and drains clear of debris.
  • Inspect the roof, windows and other areas where water might enter the building and perform necessary maintenance.
  • Respond to all water intrusions immediately.
