Water needs to be removed quickly, so that mold and mildew are not able to form. If water from a flood is not cleaned up right away —at least within 48 hours, you risk potential health hazards such as allergies or even lung disease can form due to the formation of mold and mildew. Mold can also cause damage to the structure of your home. Dampness and water in walls, basements, carpets and wood is a breeding ground for mold to form. Eating while in an area exposed to mold damage could also potentially be harmful.
For sensitive people, mold spores can cause various health problems. It is very important to find out the sources of moisture so that mold and mildew can be removed. Those who are especially vulnerable to mold and mildew are pregnant women, those who have respiratory problems, the elderly, children and infants. Mold is sometimes hard to find; however, if you smell an odor that is musty or if you see dark spotting along the walls or on furniture, it is a good indication that it is mold and it is forming. Mold can also be spotted underneath furniture or other material or behind walls. Be sure to look for a kind of discoloration around the plaster or drywall. Usually the best indicators are your nose and throat. If you’ve noticed a musty, pungent odor be sure to give us a call for the health and safety of your family. (877) 520-1923.

Is it damaged or just affected? This is one of the most common challenges a water restoration professional faces today. Many water damage restoration pros have arrived at a loss only to find themselves being told by a customer that “They want new carpet”! or “The walls all need to be replaced”, and so on sand so forth. “Just because something has become wet does not necessarily mean it needs to be replaced” because it has become damaged. If you are lucky and tend to it immediately you might be able to have the damages repaired instead of having to replace completely.
Left untreated, ongoing damages may occur due to continued absorption of humidity into items that previously were just affected by water.
If water evaporates too quickly into warm interior air without a corresponding reduction in humidity, this often may result in an increased potential for damages to occur to materials. Your most likely to have this occur when the humidity levels are above 60%.
Time and reduction of humidity are of great importance and are key factors in whether or not you cause any secondary damages to occur. It is important to respond quickly and try and reduce the humidity levels in the area down below 40% within the first 24 hours. Establishing these drying goals and determining dry standards for affected materials is the most reliable way to prevent secondary damage along with knowing you have successfully returned the structure and its contents to an acceptable condition.
