Untreated Water Damage Leads to Mold Growth

4/30/2020 (Permalink)

When water damage is left untreated, mold growth quickly occurs. Contact SERVPRO of Mayes & Wagoner Counties at the first sign of water damage. 

If you have ever been curious about where a certain odor was coming from and almost went crazy looking for the source, there is a chance it could have been caused by water damage. But how does water damage cause such foul smells, and what can you do about them? SERVPRO of Mayes & Wagoner Counties provides restoration services and has experience in dealing with this kind of issue. 

Although it often starts out as just a nuisance, water damage can worsen over time. Seeping water can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which is when foul odors start to emerge. Water triggers mold to release spores, creating a sickening stench. Odors can also be a result of other contaminants. For instance, when a sewer backs up, the resulting smell comes from the sewage that is inside your home. 

So, what can you do about it? Well, this is one mess you definitely should not try to clean up yourself: Water damage always calls for a professional touch. Additionally, if there is any form of sewage present, you will need professional sewage cleanup services to remove all the hazardous and toxic materials. The same is true for mold cleanup. And remember: It is important to call an expert right away. Whether you just noticed a leak or your home recently sustained a flood, now is the time to contact a specialist. If you wait too long, the damage could become more expensive to repair and may even harm your health.  

If you have water damage and need a crew that can handle large cleanups with ease, get in touch with SERVPRO of Mayes & Wagoner Counties. Their friendly staff can help with all types of damage done to your home. To find out more about the services they offer, call (918)486-1055.
