Mold Prevention Tips for Aitkin Residents?

10/10/2023 (Permalink)

Mold is growing inside a water-damaged wall. We are highly trained and certified to remediate mold damage in Aitkin County.

Water can seep into any porous surface and encourage mold growth. Mold can feed on many organic substances, like drywall, wood, fabrics, paints, and more. When you notice a strong, musty odor, or if you have a water leak or have recently had a water damage event, the likelihood of discovering a mold outbreak is increased. Our local Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties team is a trusted leader in mold remediation services. Upon arrival, we will locate the source of the excess moisture and address the issue during the mold remediation process.

Here are some from our website things you can do to prevent the mold from spreading while waiting for professional help to arrive:

Important Facts

  • Significant mold growth can occur in 48 to 72 hours.
  • A strong, musty odor may indicate hidden mold behind drywall or under carpeting.

What to Do

  • Turn off the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and fans.
