When disaster strikes, it’s crucial to respond quickly in order to prevent any further damage and complications. Mold infestations, heavy storms, overflows or floods from the broken pipes, all these disasters should be dealt with, in a timely manner. Here’s what may happen in case you do not act fast after a disaster:
Risks of Water and Mold Damage
If the structures and the contents damaged by waters are not quickly dried out, there is a risk of the development of potential health risks. Mold can start growing within one to two days after flooding and it might be responsible for “sick building syndrome”, for the allergic reactions and many other health related problems as well as mold damage to the structure and contents.
Excess water may cause: corrosion to electronic components, rusting of metals, cracking, warping or splitting of furniture, color transfer in fabrics, stains in furniture and damage to upholstery, clothing, drapery, wallpaper, papers and photos.
FAST ACTION is required to remove water from carpets. In case the carpet is wet, it can quickly begin to smell and mold growth can start within 3 days. Our professionals in the field have years of experience in drying carpets.
The home’s security and safety might be compromised. Doors and windows can become weak and stop functioning properly. Wet materials might collapse and the electrical components and installations may become a health hazard when they come in contact with water. There is also a potential danger of slipping and falling.
Professional specialists in restoration can help in mitigating the losses by using latest equipment, techniques and technology in the industry. The moisture is removed before mold can get established. Efficient and fast drying will also prevent irreversible damage to the structure and contents of the home. Fire related problems and safety concerns can also be detected and prevented by restoration specialists.
