Professional Water Damage Cleanup Prevents Mold Infestation
When it comes to water damage in your home, it’s the water you don’t see that often causes the most damage. This type of unseen water damage often manifests itself later on in the way of extensive mold growth and infestation – which is not only harmful to you and your family’s health, but can also result in structural damage to your home.
It’s important to contact a professional water damage cleanup and restoration company if you see the following signs of water damage that can cause mold infestation:
- Excessive humidity or condensation, leaking pipes, roof leakages, poor ventilation, flooding, damp basements, water damage in your home’s underlying foundation
- Rotting or warped wood, damp carpets, rusting metal, de-laminating of materials such as plywood

A professional water damage restoration company has the right tools and equipment to:
- Identify any potential water damage in your home
- Determine the extent and type of water damage
The type of water damage threatening your home affects its vulnerability to mold growth and infestation. For example, water that has been standing for more than 48 hours is dangerous as it provides ideal conditions for mold growth. To prevent mold growth and infestation, the first step is to completely remove all existing water damage – both seen and unseen.
