Juan, Tony, and all the folks over at HRP were fantastic. They came out very soon after we called them and were responsive throughout the several weeks remediation and repair process. They remediated and repaired significant damage caused by a water leak in an interior bathroom that had spread into an adjacent pantry and through an adjacent room. We will definitely use their services again if ever needed.
Mold formation from water damage is primarily caused by the presence of excess moisture. When water damage occurs, if the moisture is not promptly and thoroughly removed, it creates an ideal environment for mold spores to grow. Mold spores are always present in the air, but they require water to start growing actively.
Here are the common factors that contribute to mold growth after water damage:
- Persistent Moisture:
- Lack of Ventilation:
To prevent mold growth after water damage, it is crucial to remove the water and dry the affected area as soon as possible. Dehumidifiers, fans, and other drying methods can be employed to ensure the area is completely dry. Additionally, removing or repairing the source of the water damage is essential to prevent recurrence. If mold growth is already present, professional remediation is recommended to safely and effectively remove the mold and prevent future growth.
