As soon as a home is flooded, it doesn’t take long for mold to spread. A mold infestation can spread through your whole home within 48-72 hours. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), mold can make your nose stuffy and irritate your eyes, skin and lungs. People who are allergic to mold or have a sensitivity to mold can experience shortness of breath, fevers and wheezing. It can eventually lead to chronic lung disease if left untreated.

A: In some cases, such as a natural disaster, you may be required to seek professional water restoration services for your insurance coverage. Other instances are a bit harder to tell. Look for signs of leaks around your home, as this may lead to your pipes bursting and an even larger issue. Cracked, peeled or discolored paint may indicate a leak, as may swollen walls or visible mold.
A: You should call as soon as a flood happens or as soon as it is safe to, in the event you’ve had to temporarily relocate. It is recommended that you call right away, as mold can start to grow within the first 24 hours.
A: If possible, stop your water at its source and turn off your electricity if it’s safe to do so. Remove any small appliances, furnishings and draperies to a dry space if possible so that there are fewer items at risk of damage. Do NOT use a vacuum or shop-vac to remove water, as this can cause electrical shock and ruin the appliances. Avoid mopping, as this can just push potentially contaminated water around, into the walls and otherwise dry areas of your home.
A: Extraction equipment is brought in to remove any and all of the freestanding water, including water from carpets and upholstery. Then, professional-grade drying equipment and dehumidifiers are used to lessen the humidity level and prevent the growth of mold. We utilize special instruments to then scope out any hidden pockets of water that might still be lingering in the affected areas.
