Being Alert in Flood Restoration of Molds to Save and to Be Safe


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
After a flood, many people become convinced that testing is the best way to find out if you have a mold problem. That isn't necessarily true.The growth of mold can occur whenever susceptible building materials are wet for long enough to allow the spores to germinate and multiply.

Given a source of moisture, mold can grow just about anywhere. Moisture control and air filtration are necessary to control mold growth.

Where a water episode is reported early, an immediate response and professional water restoration practices can prevent or limit mould growth and allow most of the finishes and contents to be saved. There is no way to eliminate all molds from your home, but here are some steps you can take to reduce the opportunities for mold growth:

Usually when mold growth is found, it is related to a moisture or water problem. The source of moisture must be addressed as well as cleanup of the mold growth. After any flooding incident, make sure to completely dry out any impacted areas of the house. Do not rely on evaporation alone to adequately dry an area that's been flooded. Providing good air circulation and using dehumidifiers are important for fast, adequate drying. Carpets that can not be dried in 48 hours should be removed and discarded. In general, carpets that have been contaminated with flood or sewer water should be replaced. Repair cracks in basement walls. Moisture can seep in, creating a moist environment conducive to mold growth. A dehumidifier and/or air conditioner should be used to reduce indoor moisture levels during humid times of the year. Always clean up spills and fix leaks in plumbing promptly and thoroughly. Mold growth can begin within 24 to 48 hours after a water leak. Regularly clean and empty the drip pans in your air conditioner, refrigerator, and dehumidifier. Typically, it is not necessary to use humidifiers in homes. Normal activities such as cooking, showering and breathing add adequate moisture to the air. If you have a rental property, consider including a provision in the tenant's lease requiring the prompt reporting of any leaks, floods, or mold growth. If you are renting, promptly report any leaks, flooding, or mold growth. Be sure the home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms. Let exhaust fans run during, and 20 minutes after, bathing and/or showering. Consider installing exhaust fans with humidistat controls. When the moisture is adequately ventilated from the area the fan will shut off automatically. Use mold inhibitors, which can be added to paints. Be sure and read the application instructions carefully. If not used according to instructions mold inhibitors can cause health problems for some individuals. Do not carpet bathrooms.

Extensive cleanup of large areas may require the use of a mold flood restoration service and the removal of mold contaminated surfaces

Always be guided by professional Auckland Flood Restoration for reliable results
