Most people usually think of the loss of personal items or business equipment when they have water damage. While the loss is mentally and emotionally distressing, the resulting mold that can quickly grow in a damp environment has far reaching consequences on a structure’s air quality and the health of anyone that enters.
A leaky roof or water pipe damage can go unnoticed for many months, but it only takes 48 hours for mold to begin growing and multiplying. The moist, dark, warm conditions where water leaks typically occur are the perfect breeding ground for multiple types of mold. Under ideal conditions, mold spores can begin to germinate in as little as 12 hours.
Sudden leaks such as roof damage from storms or a burst pipe are equally beneficial for mold growth. Mold can grow anywhere and often hides in walls, furniture, in the attic, and even in heating ducts. Any water damage should undergo a water mitigation process as soon as possible no matter what area of a structure that it’s in.
Water mitigation utilizes specialized techniques and equipment to minimize the amount of damage and loss associated with leaks and even flooding. It’s critical for preventing and containing the spread of mold. It’s a multi-step process that involves leak detection utilizing thermal imaging, removal of the water, and professional drying systems.
Areas of mold are identified, containment protocols employed, and affected areas removed and disposed of in accordance with all pertinent regulations. All affected areas are disinfected, sanitized, and deodorized for premises that are dry, free of mold, and fresh smelling.
It doesn’t matter whether water enters from a leaky roof, burst pipe, or a hurricane. Homes and commercial enterprises are all subject to mold growth. Mold affects the air quality in any structure and can make people sick. It’s especially dangerous for those with respiratory conditions, making a quick and thorough clean up critical.
