Common Causes for Mold Growth

A perfect environment for mold to grow is a warm, damp area that typically never completely dries due to a leak or running water. Mold can start to grow on a damp surface and spread in as little as 48 hours. If these areas are not properly dried in a timely manner can create ideal conditions to foster mold growth. For mold prevention it is important to fix the leak, remove the water and dry out the premises properly within 24 to 48 hours from the water incident.

Some of the main causes of water damage that contribute to mold growth are:

  • Broken Water Pipes
  • Pipe Leaks
  • Toilet Overflows
  • Sewage Backups
  • Flooding from storms
  • Appliances overflowing
  • Basement Flooding

Signs of a Mold Presence

  • The presence of visible mold
  • Strong musty odors
  • Evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold in the walls and ceilings
  • Excessive humidity

Commercial & Residential Mold Estimates

We provide free estimates for mold removal and remediation for your home or business. We have to visit your home where the mold outbreak is present and determine how bad the mold outbreak is. In some cases until we open the walls, we can not truly give a complete and accurate cost assessment to remove the mold. In some cases the mold is behind the walls and has spread to different areas throughout the house. This will increase the cost of the project and the remediation process. We do provide you with a free estimate, but also will let you know if we find additional potential unseen mold growth the cost will be higher.
