Water damage has the potential to compromise your home to the point that it is no longer safe to live in it. If your home has been damaged by water, be it in the form of a flood, a broken pipe, a leaky pipe or anything else, it is imperative that timely mold remediation in Coral Springs is performed. Here is a quick and insightful look at the importance of mold remediation in Coral Springs.
Mold is a Direct Threat to Your Health
You deserve a mold-free living space that is perfectly clean and healthy for living. Live in a mold-laden home and it is only a matter of time until your health suffers the consequences. Mold is quite common after water exposure. In most cases, mold appears within three days of the water event. If the damage is a result of a sewage backup, mold is likely to manifest even quicker. Once mold rears its ugly head, it is likely to move to other parts of your property that are already damp. Though removing mold is not that challenging, health problems can arise if it is not tended to in a timely manner.
Health complications stemming from mold include sneezing, skin irritations and reactions similar to those spurred by allergies. In fact, mold exposure even has the potential to cause respiratory failure and neurological disorders. Those with an underdeveloped or weak immune system are that much more likely to suffer negative health consequences from mold exposure. Our team is here to perform immediate mold remediation so your living space is clean and healthy once again.
The Dynamism of Water
Water exposure on your property, whether it is from a flood, a leaky pipe or something else, undergoes a variety of changes within the initial hours after saturation. The result is stained furniture and carpeting, potentially compromised appliances, ruined electrical items and myriad threats to your health. If 12 to 20 hours pass after the water infiltrates your living space, bacteria are likely to form within the stagnant water. Water will cause permanent damage to the surfaces throughout your home in this same window of time. Once 48 hours pass, mold will set in, leading to even more problems.
Do not Attempt an Immediate Mold Remediation on Your Own
It is a mistake to assume you can perform mold remediation on your own after water exposure. There is a good chance such a DIY effort will actually worsen the problem. Mold remediation in Coral Springs is best left to the professionals. We will prioritize your home cleanup project and tend to the water issue with our advanced equipment, tools, and resources.
Time is of the Essence
Once a week has passed after the water exposure, your flooded home or other property will prove dangerous for anyone aside from our trained mold remediation specialists. We have the experience, education, training and high-tech equipment necessary to tackle your mold problem. If you have neglected your home's water problem for several days or a week's time, the mold has likely grown to the point that it is a direct threat to your health. This is precisely why we request customers to contact us as soon as they are aware of water exposure.
The rampant growth of mold combined with the presence of sewage will make your living space incredibly toxic. It is possible a living space laden with water will cause structural materials to gradually deteriorate, creating the potential for ceilings and walls to collapse. In fact, if you wait too long to address standing water within a flooded basement, the foundation might permanently crack.
