If you have water damage in your Valdosta home or business don't wait, call trained professionals today. In many cases, secondary damage such as black mold can cause even more trouble than the primary damage.

The following are a few questions that you may want to know the answers to in order to keep avoid larger problems.

How Does a Leak Contribute to Mold Growth?

This question has a simple and easy answer. Leaks create a wet area in the building which results in the optimal environment for mold to grow. This fungus thrives in moisture and can spread very quickly under the right circumstances. When you have a roof leak, it can result in a growth forming in the ceiling and may require quite a bit of work to remove it completely.

How Long Does It Take to Spread?

Mold can spread quite quickly when provided with enough moisture. If you have a roof or ceiling leak, you could end up with a mold problem overnight. It takes as little as a day for this persistent fungus to start growing a colony and the longer it is left alone, the bigger the growth will become. Over time, it can spread to other areas of the building as well.

What Can You Do About It?

There are several steps you can take to prevent it from spreading, the first of which is to have repairs made as soon as you discover a leak or water damage. Keeping moisture levels low in the building by using a dehumidifier, vent or open windows can help as well.

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more. SERVPRO of Valdosta arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.
