How To Prevent Mold After Water Damage

Homeowners can prevent mold growth through everyday measures. Mold thrives in moist environments such as the basement and bathrooms. The most effective way to keep mold from growing in your home is to monitor the humidity level by using a dehumidifier and/or air conditioner during the warm humid months. Additionally, homeowners can control mold growth by using exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms. But what happens when you can't control the moisture caused by a roof leak, appliance failure, or groundwater flooding? The key is to act quickly to prevent mold growth after a water damage loss. 

The IICRC recommends 5 steps to clean up from water damage after a leak or flood. 

  1. Evaluate the situation and damage 
  2. Extract standing water and remove unsalvagable structural materials
  3. Clean, sanitize, and deodorize
  4. Dry contents and structures
  5. Maintain dry area and prevent future water damage 

ServiceMaster Dynamic Cleaning is an IICRC certified disaster restoration company.

We have the knowledge and the experience to restore your home or business after a water loss. Mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours after a flood or leak has occurred. We know that acting fast is key to preventing mold growth after a water damage loss so our technicians respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Water removal services on their own are normally not enough to remove all the moisture from a home after a water damage event. Water can hide behind walls, under flooring, or in your HVAC system and vents.
