Spring Flooding Can Lead to Mold
Hi, welcome to the Fresh Maintenance Blog. Here we hope to post useful information about how to keep your home clean, and free from mold and mildew.
Spring is here and the wet weather has returned. This leads to floods and damp basements, that leads to the growth of mold. The most important thing for you to remember is if you do get water in your basement is to dry it out as soon as possible. The use of a wet/dry vac and a mop can mean the difference between no problem and a severe mold out break. Molds can begin to grow in as little as 48 hours, so you need to check your basement during and right after a rain storm to prevent a bloom from happening.
