Water Damage Restoration to Avoid Mold Growth
Microscopic Mold is Secondary to Water Damage
After a water damage it is important to make sure that mold does not begin to grow. Mold especially can be a difficult situation if it is left unchecked. Mold grows from a tiny microscopic spore that floats through the air. All that it needs to grow where it lands is a dark area, no moving air, and a source of moisture. If an area is lacking even one of those ingredients, the mold won't grow.
Mold likes basements, crawl spaces, closets and other similar areas where no one goes into. Soakable items can become a haven for mold and bacteria and that is why they must be discarded. There are accounts of people discovering that some of the soakable items from a water damage years before were the source of mold growth that had festered and grown. These items should have been dried properly to avoid mold growth.
