Call a Restoration Company at The Sign of Water Damage
Here is a classic example of something water restoration companies come across so often: water damage that leads to a severe black mold problem.
The clients move into a new home. Upon moving in, they placed a lot of their boxes in the basement for storage. Eventually and coincidentally after a lot of heavy rain storms, the clients head into the basement only to find that their basement is flooded and their boxes are now sitting and/or floating in water.
Often, clients will try to deal with flooding on their own. They may mop up the water and do their best to get rid of the flooding. However, clients will often stop there hoping that the area will just naturally dry out. Boxes may be left to try to dry out on their own. Area rugs might be left as well. Meanwhile, water from the initial flood has already seeped into the walls. All three examples can lead to mold infestation.
Often, in cases of untreated water damage, mold can actually begin to accumulate on walls. Mold has been shown to lead to a vast array of health problems from headaches to allergies to sinusitis. Mold is extremely dangerous for children and can even make pets sick as well!
At this point, most clients will call a remediation company to come in. However, this is not always the case. Many people believe that they can deal with mold on their own. If the mold is in a small area, this might be possible; however, mold often spreads beyond where the eye can see so if you have had a flood and your home has not properly been dried out, the chances are likely you will need an expert remediation company to come in.
An experienced water restoration company has the skills and tools to completely and properly perform water cleanup and dry out your property. An expert mold removal team will know how to completely and safely remove anything affected by mold and completely disinfect the affected area.
It is important as a homeowner to always check areas prone to flooding, especially after heavy rains. Areas like crawlspaces and basements are especially prone to flood damage. If a flood is discovered, immediately call a restoration company for help. By doing so, you might be able to salvage your goods and prevent mold infestation.
Ultimately, the best thing to do at the very first sign of water damage or flooding is to call a certified water damage restoration company like 1800DryMeOut.com. Water restoration specialists can cleanup the water and restore your home before any further damage sets in such as mold.
