Be Mindful Of Mold After Flood Damage In Fort Myers
Our Quick Response Helps to Remediate Damage and Helps Deter Mold From Setting In
Flood damage is frustrating for any homeowner. It only takes a small amount of water to cause a surprisingly large amount of harm. A broken pipe or leaking appliance is enough to cause extensive damage to floor coverings and furniture and seep into baseboards, cabinets, and walls. Mold is an additional risk to Fort Myers homes after a water leak, and SERVPRO encourages homeowners to be mindful of the problem.
It is understandable that after flood damage in Fort Myers, the primary concern of homeowners is removing the water and drying all affected items. However, it is also a good idea to consider the risk of mold. Fungal spores are microscopic and thus invisible to the naked eye, and grow anywhere there is an organic food source (such as cotton, leather or wood), and moisture. It is easy to see why it is easy for the fungus to grow after flood damage, as many items could still be damp.
The best defense against ongoing problems from flood damage is calling SERVPRO. We train our IICRC-certified technicians to deal with leaks and spills both big and small. Our professional service begins with thorough water extraction because we know that removing as much water as possible early in the process is key to success.
Following extraction, we set to work drying out any water-logged areas in your home. We tackle carpets, floors, and even behind cabinets or baseboards. Our technicians use moisture meters and probes to assess damp levels in affected areas. Because we use high-quality equipment, our customers can rest assured that when we say an area is dry, it is thoroughly so, with no hidden patches of damp.
We also use air movers, box fans, and dehumidifiers to assist the drying process and encourage evaporation. We train our technicians in how to choose and position drying equipment for maximum efficiency. We even use air scrubbers and wet fogging to take care of lingering damp odors, to leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
