Immediate Drying Is Crucial For Mold Prevention

Water Damage to your home resulting from leaking pipes or from a toilet overflow may result in hidden water damage inside of your walls and saturate areas hidden under your sinks and cabinets. High humidity or warm moist air will accelerate mold growth especially in bathrooms.

Kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities are high risk areas and are excellent candidates for mold growth once they become wet because mold thrives in moist damp and dark environments.
