The Importance of Prompt Flood Damage Restoration
Whether such an event occurred due to a natural disaster, defects in the home, or accidental negligence, the task of water damage cleanup is a job for an experienced water damage restoration contractor. Such individuals are trained in all types of water damage repair, and unlike most homeowners, they are prepared for the hazards that come with working in a moisture-damaged environment.
Dangers of Black Mold
Whenever flood damage restoration is necessary, there is a high likelihood of encountering mildew and mold. You may be aware of the fact that black mold is a toxic substance and can lead to severe health problems in humans and pets. Fortunately, flood restoration contractors have access to a broad range of safety tools that can be used to prevent exposure to this dangerous substance. Mold is a particular concern if basement water damage has occurred, as most cellars already feature a moist environment, which is only made worse by a flood or similar event.
Water Damage Cleanup Tips
If the damage is mild, you may wish to tackle some cleanup tasks on your own. Although this is not recommended, if you choose to do so, always use the following equipment:
• Face mask
• Electric fans
• Rubber gloves
• Waterproof shoes or mud boots
When conducting water damage repair, always wear a face mask. Additionally, you should invest in at least one dehumidifier and several electric fans when performing water extraction, as such appliances will help to keep the presence of germs, bacteria and mold spores to a minimum. You should also begin by determining which items must be discarded, and which can be saved. As a general rule, objects made out of porous material should be thrown away, and those made from nonporous material cleaned and scrubbed.
