FireStar technicians are certified mold removal specialists - It is vitally important to dry water damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent the onset of mold and mildew...
Mold and mildew are types of fungi that rapidly reach critical mass wherever moisture is present indoors. This can result from any number of situations due to flooding, water accumulation after a fire, a broken pipe, or even a malfunctioning HVAC system for example—all of which can lead to trouble. Any high degree of moisture, combined with temperature and nutrients, creates the perfect environment for the fungal components of mold and mildew to thrive. It is important to remove the source of the moisture to prevent the spread of mold contamination as soon as possible.
Medical experts agree that in as few as 72 hours after any water accumulation, mold can begin to form. For some people, exposure to mold can result in allergic or respiratory symptoms, skin rashes, gastrointestinal problems or systemic disease. With any stagnant water indoors, particularly during the humid spring and summer months, there is always the potential for dangerous airborne bacteria to develop.
Toxic mold, such as black mold for example, should only be removed by technicians specifically trained and certified in mold removal. Awareness and quick action are vital to avoiding this potentially serious problem.
