At SERVPRO OF North Clay County/Oakleaf/North Middleburg we educate our customers on mold damage tips to help prevent a major mold problem in your home or place of business. The key to mold control at SERVPRO of North Clay County/Oakleaf/North Middleburg we stress is moisture control. It is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth. Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Mold spores will be found floating in the air and in house dust. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling the moisture indoors. Again, the best way to prevent mold is by cleaning up any sitting water within 24-48 hours. As well as keeping you home or business free from dust. Another helpful tip is to keep the indoor humidity low. If possible, keep the humidity level below 60% (ideally between 30-50%) relative humidity. A good way to ensure this is to have your thermostat fan set to auto. SERVPRO of North Clay County/Oakleaf/North Middleburg is a trusted vendor in the community winning Small Business of the year for Middleburg in 2022. And Clay County's Best of the Best for Restoration in 2023.
