When a major flood within a home occurs, either due to a broken water line or even a severe storm, most don’t know what to do or if anything should be done if water damage is present. Water damage can lead to some serious consequences. One worst case scenario is when mold spores infect too much of a home and it is condemned by a Governmental Protection Agency. When a flood and storm causes major water damage, you will want to repair what you can and remove the rest. Future Vision Remodeling will share what should be done if major water damage has occurred inside your home.
how to Prevent Mold After Water Damage
One of the leading contributors as to why homes are threatened by water damage is how quickly microbial bacteria can occur. Whether water was exposed to carpet, rugs, drywall, the porous items within the home traps and holds moisture. In turn, and with the right conditions, fungus, molds and mildew will begin to develop. All of these microbes can cause major health concerns. It’s important to act quickly to prevent mold! Starting with water extraction and structural drying to help identify what materials need to be replaced.
Water Damage Assessment & Inspection
Once a home has been infected with major water damage, you or a professional water damage restoration company needs to come and remove the severely water damaged areas or repair them if it is an option. When working to restore a home after major water damage has occurred, the first thing you will want to do is to turn off the power to make sure water hasn’t made contact with any electrical wiring. Next is to clean up and remove all of the furniture and get them out of the water damaged areas. Once everything is cleared out, you can start to assess the damage. Anyone who will be doing this should wear protective clothing and gear.
