What happens when those small water damages go unnoticed, or moisture soaks into a building’s structural components where it cannot be detected by the naked eye?  These incidents may sound relatively harmless, but given time, excess moisture can lead to serious problems. 

In as little as 24 to 48 hours, microscopic mold spores, naturally present in all structures, can grow into visible mold.  Fueled by the moisture, these fungi feed on a variety of building subcomponents including wood, paint, paper, carpet padding, and contents. 

While the debate rages on regarding impact mold have on human health, mold and mildew growth are recognized as major contributors to indoor air quality problems.  These nightmares happen every day as a direct result of those small water damages that gradually take their toll on buildings and homes.  The recipe for disaster is the combination of excess moisture, a food source for mold found in organic building materials (such as wood, drywall, some types of insulation), and a time delay in removing the moisture.
