Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your home or business. When a home or business suffers any type of water intrusion, mold can arise and spread in as little as 48 hours and become a major problem and hassle. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, and it has the potential to cause other health effects. If you suspect your home or business has a mold problem, please call SERVPRO of Winter Haven. We can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
