DEFENSE AGAINST MOLD GROWTH
Do you know what to look for after a water loss? Are you aware that mold can grow in a short period of time if the conditions are not properly controlled after a loss? There are ways to make sure anti microbial growth does not occur. Prompt mitigation is vital to avoid microbial growth, which can be visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours under certain conditions. Some tips to avoid microbial growth are as follows:
Keep the humidity between 30 to 60 percent. Provide for 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.
