What to Do About Water and Mold Damage In Your Building

Although some moisture is naturally found in wood, having too much moisture can damage your flooring. Proper drying techniques can fix this problem!

April showers have definitely brought May flowers, but do you know what else they may bring? Mold. Water leaks. Weakened structure. Multiple problems in your building. Many building occupants may become seriously alarmed upon the discovery of mold growth or entering the building to find a puddle in the middle of their office.

Why contact a restoration company immediately?

Only a small amount of water is needed to give a slow leak a lot of power. The water can cause destruction in one place, and then migrate to the next. Water likes to travel; it can soak through most structure materials such as insulation, flooring, laminate, sheet rock, and wood. Remaining untreated, mold grows and digs deeper into the foundation of a building, and will become a property manager or owner’s worst nightmare. The potential for multiple occupants becoming affected means different scopes of work needing to be completed. Although the removal of mold is never 100%, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling the level of moisture. If you are a property manager or owner, you have the opportunity to respond quickly and more efficiently to building damage if a restoration company is immediately involved.
