Mold Damage Remediation Services
Disaster Cleanup Network specializes in helping homeowners and businesses all across Florida pick up the pieces after a water damage disaster has occurred. Any time that your home or business is damaged by water, you run the risk of mold developing, which is a very serious matter. And, when your property has been damaged by mold, time is working against you.
Mold can begin to grow very rapidly following water damage in a structure. Within as little as twenty-four to forty-eight hours, mold spores can begin to take hold on surfaces in a building such as walls, carpeting, wood, paper products and documents. It is therefore absolutely crucial that a property restoration company be called in so that the mold can be properly identified and then eradicated using the most advanced cleaning solutions and procedures. If you should attempt to clean the mold yourself using common household cleaners such as bleach, you will only get rid of the outwards signs of the visible mold but will do little to completely stop the mold from coming back.
Due to the fact that mold needs moisture in order to grow and thrive, the most important aspect of cleaning mold is determining where the source of the moisture is coming from. This most often requires the skills of a trained professional because the source of the moisture can be in the least expected places such as between walls, in crawl spaces and around plumbing fixtures and pipes. The source must be identified and then the moisture must be dealt with, otherwise any mold cleanup efforts will be in vain because the mold will surely return, and in a very short period of time.
If the mold is severe, it may require that a bio hazard report be done so that the best course of action is taken to kill the mold and to remove any affected materials. In the worst case scenario, complete reconstruction is necessary and inhabitants are told to vacate the premises due to some very seriously severe health risks that are associated with certain types of molds. People with asthma and other respiratory conditions are at particular high risk so personal safety is at the forefront when it comes to dealing with mold damage.
Many home and business owners who have suffered some type of water damage tend to leave mold be once it has been discovered just to ‘see what happens’. This is always a very bad idea because once left to grow and spread, mold can cause you some very big problems down the road – both to your home or building and to your health. Mold does not simply go away and it will continue to be a threat and even gets much worse if not dealt with immediately and aggressively.
