It's not the visible water damage that can be a concern- it's what happens when the water sits for a while that can be the concern. In as little as 48 hours, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business when there’s a water intrusion. Mold can cause health effects as well as significant damage to your property. SERVPRO of Dover/ Middletown has the training and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem.

If you have a mold problem in your home or business, consider the following facts:

  • Significant mold growth can occur in 48-72 hours.
  • Mold may present a greater risk to children, the elderly, and anyone with respiratory problems.
  • A strong, musty odor may indicate hidden mold behind drywall or under carpeting.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn OFF the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Dover/ Middletown for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
