Mold Spores can Survive Harsh Conditions in your Fargo Home or Business

Standing water and moisture can lead to mold growing in your home. Mold does not need visible
water to grow. Humidity inside the home is enough. Small amounts of water vapor can help
mold grow.
SERVPRO of Fargo knows that storm or flood damage can allow the mold spores to open
up. Any dampness can lead to mold.

Staying Healthy around Standing Water in Fargo

Standing water of any kind in Fargo can be a powerful source of disease. Floods can be worse due to the amount of water involved. Even small puddles can pose a risk. 

Different kinds of debris can be found in floodwaters such as dead animals, rotted plants, and sewage, to name a few. If you have water damage inside your home, watch for debris in the home as well to include rotted food and electrical problems.
