Mold is everywhere, and though not all molds are harmfully toxic, many varities can certainly cause allergy problems. Mold spores cannot be completely eliminated from indoor environments, they grow exponentially to become visible to the human eye in the presence of moisture. We can remediate the mold through strict protocols provided by third party environmental hygienist to mitigate the possibility of mold germination.
If structural drying does not begin within 24-48 hours of water damage, then microbial growth can occur. At Har-Bro we follow the International Institute of Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) procedure of handling mold remediation jobs as outlined in the guide document S520.
We encourage property owners to take immediate action when dealing with water damage at their property to prevent microbial growth and execute due diligence in maintaining a healthy living and working environment.
