How quickly does mold grow after water damage?

Should I repair water damage myself?

Maybe you had a water leak from a plumbing problem or from a leaky refrigerator. Maybe we had a major storm, hurricane, or tornado sweep through the Dallas area. Either way, now your home has water damage. Depending on how severe the water damage, you are probably asking yourself, “Should I clean up the water damage myself or hire a professional?”. 

The following are a couple things to consider. First, hopefully, the water damage will be covered by your insurance company. SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville works with all insurance companies in the area and knows what each company is looking for (this will make things easier on you). Second, if the area is not properly and completely dried out, even in the areas you cannot see, the structure will more than likely suffer secondary damage. What is secondary damage? Mold growing in your home is known as secondary damage after a water damage event. Mold needs moisture to grow and it can grow within 24-48 hours.

Time is a factor after a water damage. If mold is already growing in your home after a water damage, SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville is a Licensed Remediation Company with two Licensed Remediation Contractors on staff. We are here to help. Give us a call today!
