Water Damage and Mold Growth

Water Damage and Flooding in San Francisco

Mold inspection and mold testing services are oftentimes performed after a water damage event. People in San Francisco who may need a water damage response (or water extraction, cleaning and drying services) can develop a mold infestation quite easily. Because mold can grow within 24 – 48 hours after a water damage event, any kind of flood or plumbing leak that causes water damage should be followed by a mold inspection that contains mold testing. If an area has been wet for an extended period of time, or if water has soaked into building materials, like wood or drywall, mold will almost certainly follow.

If you have experienced water damage at your San Francisco Bay Area property, responding quickly to the event with proper water extraction and drying as soon as possible will lessen the chance of a severe mold problem. However, it does not eliminate the risk of a problem. The solution is to seek out a professional mold inspection company in San Francisco to conduct air mold testing and surface mold testing to determine if a problem exists.

Bay Area Mold Services can perform such services if a water damage event has occurred at your home or business.
