Why Water Removal Is Important To Protect Against Mold

Protect Your Home And Your Family With Mold Prevention

After A Water Exposure When a home is flooded or damaged by water, many homeowners focus on the visible signs. They mop up puddles, air out rooms, and try to salvage as much as they can from the wreckage. What they often do not realize is that a lot of damage can take place in places that are hidden from view. A professional water removal company utilizes additional tools like thermal imaging and moisture meters to help ensure that any hidden pockets of water are taken care of. Water can easily seep underneath floorboards or go behind the walls of a home. If these hidden pockets of water are not cleaned up and dried out right away, they can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew. Often, these can start to grow within 48 hours from the time the water was sitting.
