  • DO NOT underestimate the property damage and health risks of mold; it affects everyone differently.

  • DO NOT use bleach as it can feed further growth.

  • DO NOT attempt to dry an area with fans as it can spread the mold spores.

Tips and prevention

  • Quickly repair and clean up if a water leak occurs indoors.

  • FEMA and the EPA recommend that the clean up is completed within 24-48 hours. The longer you wait, the more likely mold will develop.

  • Indoor humidity should stay below¬†55 percent. Indoor humidity can be measured with a humidity meter or a humidistat. These meters are available for purchase at most hardware stores.
