Water & Mold Damage
A water loss can occur any number of ways. Floods are common and can result in huge financial and emotional loss. Hurricane or storms can cause damage to your home or business, allowing water to enter into expensive or precious items. Broken pipes are also common causes of water damage.
Any time a water loss is discovered, you must act promptly to locate the source of the water and stop further water intrusion, to the extent that it is possible. You should also act promptly to dry out the areas where water was present. This includes retaining a reputable water remediation company to dry out the area and apply a mildewcide to prevent mold growth.
What About Mold Damage?
Mold in Florida is common. It can result from a water loss and is usually covered under a property insurance policy. Some types of mold can also be a health risk. Molds use tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive.
There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth often occurs, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment besides controlling moisture levels.
