Mold – What to do Until Help Arrives

When there is a water intrusion, like a leaking water line or a roof leak, mold can rapidly become a problem in your business or home in as little as 2 days.  Mold can negatively affect a person’s health and can also cause serious property damage.  With SERVPRO Garden Grove West Stanton, however, our professionals have the training, skills, and specialized equipment needed to mitigate your mold problem effectively and efficiently, "Like it never even happened."

To Consider:

  • A distinct, musty odor can indicate that there may be mold hidden under carpeting or behind drywall.
  • People with respiratory problems, children, and the elderly pose a greater risk when exposed to mold.
  • Mold growth can happen as quickly as 48-72 hours.


  • Turn off your HVAC system and fans.
  • Stay away from the affected areas.
  • Call your local SERVPRO Garden Grove West Stanton office for proper mold remediation.


  • Do not touch or become in contact with the potential mold.
  • Do not use ceiling fans etc, that may blow air across any of the surfaces with potential mold.
  • Do not pour bleach or any other disinfectants over the mold surface.
  • Do not try to remediate the mold yourself.

And always, your local team here at SERVPRO Garden Grove West Stanton, is here to help!  We are only a phone call away, ready to be of service to our community!
