What Can I Do While Waiting for Help to Arrive If I Find a Mold Outbreak in My Grand Rapids Home?

1/10/2023 (Permalink)

Mold grows behind wallpaper in a bathroom with a water leak. We are leaders in mold remediation services in Itasca County.

Mold is often a symptom of a water leak hiding somewhere in your home or business. If you notice a strong, musty odor or have recently had a water damage issue, you may have a mold problem. Mold will continue to be a regional challenge due to our climate, and once mold spores find the perfect moist conditions, they will land and colonize quickly, sometimes becoming visible in as little as 48 to 72 hours.

Our local team in Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing is a trusted leader in mold mitigation and removal services. Here are some tips from our website about things you can do and not do while waiting for help to arrive:

Important Facts:

  • Significant mold growth can occur in 48 to 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 our Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing offices for mold remediation services

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold
