What Can I Do If I Discover Mold Growing In My Third Lake Home?

8/2/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is growing around a leaking door frame. We are leaders in mold damage removal in Lake County.

Mold plays a vital role in nature by breaking down organic matter. Microscopic mold spores are always present in the Earth’s atmosphere. When they find the perfect conditions to propagate, they can colonize quickly and become visible within 48 to 72 hours. Third Lake residents and businesses rely on our team in Northwest Lake County to remediate mold damage “Like it never even happened.” Here are some tips from our website on things you can and should not do while waiting for help to arrive:

Important Facts:

  • Significant mold growth can occur in 48 to 72 hours
  • Mold may present a greater risk to children, the elderly, and anyone with respiratory problems
  • A strong, musty odor may indicate hidden mold behind drywall or under carpeting

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans
  • Contact our office in Northwest Lake County for mold remediation services

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth
