If Your Home Was in a Flood, Your Next Worry Is Mold
Water damage is the most common reason for a mold infestation in residential properties. It’s not the only cause, but it’s at the top. For instance, following a flood, you’ve got water everywhere. It seeps into every crack and crevice. From there, mold is a genuine concern, and without immediate attention to the water, it’s actually a sure thing.
Importance of Mold Remediation
You see, every building in the country has some degree of mold. That might be a surprise, but it’s a fact. This fact is not a disaster only because most times, the mold remains at an “acceptable level” that does no harm to people or property. Our mold remediation service aims to eliminate mold infestation, and keep any mold at an acceptable level to produce a safe environment.
Causes & Risks of Mold
Mold is caused by a water intrusion, excess moisture, and high humidity. Since some mold is quite toxic, it can harm both people and property. Speaking of health concerns, mold is known to cause irritation, chronic coughing, asthma symptoms, and even depression. While it’s rare that someone dies from mold exposure, long-term respiratory illness is a more frequent possibility.
What Is Black Mold?
Among at least 100,000 types of mold, black mold is the most severe type of mold spore. This growth is black in color with a raised, patchy appearance, and usually leads to the most serious health concerns caused by mold. It’s the type of growth that no one, homeowner or local business alike, is equipped to handle. However, our experts are highly-trained and qualified to handle mold growth safely for you.
HVAC Cleaning & Decontamination
Treating water damage is Step One in treating mold. Then, we must remove the infestation itself. However, that’s not all. You see, mold spores travel through your HVAC system ductwork. It’s an easy path for these spores. We must clean and decontaminate the system to stop mold from spreading further. Our process ensures you’ll breathe clean, safe air once more.
To prevent mold, we do have a few tricks up our sleeve. For example, removing water and drying affected areas promptly is the first priority. Then, we need to address the underlying moisture concerns. Moisture loves to accumulate where you cannot easily find it – under flooring, in crawl spaces, attics, behind walls, and other tucked-away spots in the property. When you spot a damp area, peeling paint, or see other tell-tale beginnings of mold growth, call us to inspect your property. We’ll find the moisture source plus hidden mold growth, no matter how small.
