What is Flood Damage?

Floods are the result of water levels rising beyond its limit. There are various causes of floods such as heavy rainfall, high river levels, and over saturated soil which cause water damage. Flood damage occurs and becomes a problem when heavy rain meets the urban areas and transforms a parking area or street into a rapid flow of water. Flood damage can cause infectious diseases, the end result being water damage. This in turn, has damaging and dangerous effects to the environment, and causes severe water damage and flood damage to ones property. Water damages the property and once it dries mold can form making the area unhealthy for individuals to dwell in.

TYPES OF FLOODS DAMAGE

There are two types of floods all of which are devastating and cause flood damage and water damage. One type is called river flood. This type of flood is when the water in the river rises above the edge of the river resorting in water damage. This results in water overflowing and going over the side of the river causing flood damage. When this happens, water damages neighboring buildings and roads causing mold. Another type of flood is known as a flash flood which causes devastating flood damage. This type of flood occurs, when a wall of water quickly sweeps through an area at a rapid pace causing severe water damage.

HOW TO CLEAN FLOOD DAMAGE

After the devastating flood has ravaged through ones home, cleaning the flood damage is a daunting task which needs to be done meticulously. First wear waterproof boots and gloves for protection. Flood water is contaminated with lots of mud and other particles picked up along the floods path causing water damage, it is hazardous to one’s health. Badly soaked wallpaper due to water damage must be removed however; washable wallpaper can be cleaned using soap or detergent. The foundation must be inspected for movement to make sure it is safe after the flood damage. The basement area will need to be pumped out a little each day. If this task is done too quickly the water pressure outside the basement will be too much and result in the ceiling collapsing and further flood damage. Wood flooring must be dried out slowly to prevent cracking. A dehumidifier must then be used to clean furniture to prevent mold from forming due to water damage.

Mold Remediation Los Angeles – Water Damage Zone

If mold has already developed, attempting to clean up the mold may spread the mold spores, causing greater property damage or health problems. Mold can be dangerous to your health; therefore it is important that mold testing and cleanup be conducted by professionals as soon as mold is detected.

Mold is part of the natural environment. Outdoor mold plays a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees.

Indoor, mold growth should be avoided. Mold reproduce’s by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air.
Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Mold is usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold. Research on mold and health effects is ongoing.
