Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
Mold can become a problem in your home or business within as little as 48 hours. If there is a water invasion such as a leaking pipe, roof leak, or flood damage that wasn’t properly restored it can cause mold to grow. Kansas climate is often humid in the summer and requires us to use the heat in winter which can create the perfect grounds for mold growth. Mold can not only damage your property but can pose serious health effects to you and the people around you. SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita is ready with the proper training, protective gear, and equipment to handle your mold problem.
