Once a water loss causes damage to materials within a structure, left untreated, it can cause mold to form in as little as 48 hours. Wet materials which are not dried immediately can compound the damage caused to your home or business. In the event you have identified mold, it is imperative to have it mitigated quickly. Do not attempt to remove the mold by yourself as it could spread to unaffected areas.
