Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
In as little as 48 hours, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business when there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line. Flood water may have carried sewage or chemicals into your home. This could expose you or your family to viruses, bacteria, disease carriers (such as mosquitoes), and parasites, as well as mold. Mold can cause health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property. SERVPRO of Paulding / Polk Counties has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. Below are a few tips to keep your family safe.
