How to Prevent Carpet Mold and Mildew
If you have recently experienced flooding or water leakage in your home, take steps to stop the water source and call the local SERVPRO professionals. If you are able to stop the water from infiltrating your home, start to dry the affected areas. To prevent mold from growing and to avoid that mildew smell, get out the fans to help dry the area. If you own a dehumidifier, use it to dry out the air, walls, and ground along with the fans.
Taking these initial steps will help mitigate the damage while the SERVPRO team is on their way. SERVPRO, with industrial strength blowers, dehumidifiers, clean-up equipment, and products, will be able to get your home back to its original condition while avoiding the onset of mold and mildew.
