What are molds?

Molds are types of fungi that are found in nature and need moisture to grow.  While they are found everywhere, high levels of molds can have serious repercussions.  Mold spores can travel easily through the air and can be ingested by inhalation, which can lead to respiratory difficulties.

How can I prevent mold growth after a water loss in my home?

Time is of the essence.  Water losses must be dried quickly and effectively.   AADisaster Restoration24/7 uses state of the art drying equipment and techniques to do just that.

How can I prevent mold growth through proper maintenance?

The humidity level in your home is an important item when dealing with mold prevention.  Use a humidistat to regulate the humidity in your home to the recommended levels.  Most experts recommend a humidity level of 30 to 55%.

Should I use bleach on mold?

No, bleach should not be used to remove mold.  Bleach does not kill mold; it simply removes its pigment.
