Mold Remediation What is Mold? Mold growth in mechanical closet after a pipe break

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention https://www.cdc.gov/mold/faqs.htm#indoor “Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist, but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth”.

Excess moisture in your home can lead to mold growth. A flood, broken pipe, or an exhaust fan that is improperly vented can cause excess moisture in your home. Removing or eliminating the source of the water is the first step in making your home healthy from mold.

The next step is to call in a Professional. SERVPRO of Farmington & Farmington Hills can safely remove mold in your home.
