Cardboard boxes can be handy, convenient and used for storing stuff throughout our homes. But when the water heads to the basement, trouble can ensue as moisture + cardboard = opportunities for mold to grow. SERVPRO of Madison recommends that you store your items in plastic totes with lids instead of cardboard boxes. If your cardboard boxes get wet:
- empty the box and dry out the contents 100%
- replace all boxes with a plastic container
- toss out the water damaged box even if it appears to have dried.
