Water Damage: Mold can Grow Within 24-48 Hours
It is extremely important to have a reputable company like SERVPRO of Bellaire handle water damage, as the threat of potentially hazardous mold can develop as soon as 24-48 hours after the original water damage.
When a water loss occurs, humidity levels are high. The team at SERVPRO of Bellaire uses specialized equipment like dehumidifiers to dry properties and reduce the humidity levels. This is an extremely important part of cleanup after water damage.
Normal drying methods are simply not enough to reduce the humidity levels in a home after a major water loss. Mold is able to grow behind cabinets, walls and under flooring quickly, so the threat has to be handled by professionals who know how to properly dry flooring, walls, and other fixtures in the property.
