Crawl space Mold

The most likely place you will find some sort of mold will be in your crawl space.  It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your home or place of business.

Clean up the Water before the Mold comes

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. They can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Water Damage can Lead to Mold

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Many restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy. We understand mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of Novi has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.

Bathroom Mold Growth

Mold can grow readily and easy in a bathroom because of the wet conditions and moisture.  This can cause mold growth in the shower.  Mold can grow in between the wall tiles and around the border if there is moisture that is not dried immediately.
