Maintaining a low humidity environment in the property after water loss is often times very difficult. Taking immediate action to inhibit fungal growth after a flooding event is essential for avoiding potentially devastating restoration and remodeling costs.

Mold is a serious problem because high indoor humidity is the most common cause of black mold growth. When moisture levels meet lo airflow interiors, most porous building materials become an easy target of infestation, including drywall, insulation, hardwood flooring and of course carpet!

Most commercial buildings created after the 1970's are designed to handle high humidity but prevention and maintenance remain the top priority. Common signs that your building may be at risk for black mold growth are

*Distinctive musty odor

*poor ventilation

* standing water or frequent indoor condensation

* sprinkler systems that leak
