How to prevent mold after water damage

Walls and floor with mold after water damage How to prevent mold after water damage

Having water damage at your home and office can be a headache. You have to worry about wet furniture and appliances, weakened structures and the possibility of a short circuit when there are electrical objects involved. But in top of all that, there is a hidden threat that can develop without you noticing: mold.

Mold is actually present everywhere in the house, even in the air, as spores. When in this state, it is harmless. However, mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants. A few strains even produce toxins.

Researchers acknowledge that these toxins are potent enough to cause serious problems in healthy people and there is plenty of evidence that all molds can potentially cause rashes, headaches, dizziness, nausea, allergic reactions (like hay fever), and asthma attacks.

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. If the water problem is not treated, however, the mold cannot be eradicated. If you try to remove the mold without solving the water problem first, the mold will return.

As the time window in which mold can develop and spread is so short, immediate action is required. The first thing you should do is call a team of professionals in water damage restoration and mold remediation, such SERVPRO® of Martin County.

While you wait for help, there are also some things you should and shouldn’t do that can help prevent the development and spread of mold:

  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Discard any porous material that can trap mold, such as wood items, upholstered furniture or objects that were completely submerged.
  • Clean and disinfect glass, plastic and metal objects.
  • Run a dehumidifier inside the areas with suspected or visible mold growth.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Martin County for mold remediation services.

Also, to take care of your health, remember to stay out of the affected areas. If for some reason you have to go close to an area with mold, wear protective equipment to safeguard your eyes, nose, mouth, and skin. Do not touch or perform any action that can disturb the mold in any way.

If you take these precautionary actions, when SERVPRO of Martin County arrives they will be able to handle the water damage for you, removing the conditions that enable mold growth. That way, you won’t have to worry about mold or your health anymore.

Contact SERVPRO of Martin County for more information on how to prevent mold after water damage!

Water and Storm Damage Tips

12/4/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage in living room by flood Living room flooded

Water and storm damage can happen to anyone, anytime, but they’re especially common in Florida due to the humid weather and the many hurricanes that pass close to the state.

Water and storm damage can really take a toll on your property. Water will leak through many objects, rendering some of them useless while others require extensive work to restore. Electric appliances may short-circuit and food that wasn’t stored will be spoiled.

Within 1 or 2 days, mold will start developing in various parts of the home, causing an additional hazard for your health. Additionally, the water may be mixed with toxic chemicals or bacteria, or even sewage waste, so it can cause illnesses after it has dried.

Therefore, it’s recommended that you let a professional water damage restoration company handle the emergency. A licensed and insured company with the proper equipment can make sure that dangerous chemicals are removed, water is completely and safely dried, and mold growth is prevented.

However, while you call and wait for the restoration experts to arrive, there are some steps you can follow to minimize the damage.

First and foremost, you should act to ensure the safety of yourself and your family. Electrical and slip-and-fall accidents are some of the most common safety concerns. Therefore, only do activities that are safe for you to perform.

The first thing that you do should be to call a company such as SERVPRO® of Martin County to repair and restore the damage. Call us at (772) 334-8762 and give us detailed descriptions so we can assess your problem and send the adequate team to your property.

You need to ask yourself if it’s safe to stay in the house. Watch out for signs like flooded electrical appliances, black water (water contaminated by sewage waste) and weak, cracked ceiling. If the answer is “no”, then you should evacuate the property and let emergency services handle completely the situation.

However, if it’s safe enough for you to remain in your home, you can follow these water and storm damage tips until help arrives.

What to do after flooding

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • Gather loose items from floors.

What NOT to do after flooding

  • Don't leave wet fabrics in place. Hang furs and leather goods.
  • Don't leave books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpet or floors.
  • Don't use your household vacuum to remove water.
  • Don't use television or other household appliances.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging.

Once help arrives, our technicians will measure the damage, extract and remove leftover water, dry and dehumidify, clean and restore damaged structures. If there’s mold or harmful substances, they will handle their removal and sanitation.

Trust SERVPRO® of Martin County with your water emergency! We specialize in water damage restoration, the cornerstone of our business. We have extensive water damage restoration training, and our process emphasizes regular monitoring and documentation of the drying process from beginning to end.

You can contact us 24/7 at (772) 334-8762. Save our number for an emergency! You never know when you’ll need it.
