Residents of London, Somerset, Corbin, and surrounding areas: our team is here to help. After a water damage emergency, mold damage can occur anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours after damage has occurred in your home. The cleanup process after water mitigation may also involve addressing any mold growth or other potential health hazards. It is important to address water damage promptly to prevent further damage and potential risks. Sometimes water can hide behind walls and insulation. Professional water damage cleanup services can help efficiently restore the impacted area and check those hard-to-find places. Call our offices today for more information.
