Adequate Disaster Preparation Can Diminish Opportunistic Mold Damage In Your Greenland Residence
Mold Damage Preparation
Preparing for disasters this month means many families, schools, agencies, and others across the USA are practicing the skills needed to prevent loss of life, injuries, and unnecessary property damage. Greenland residents are encouraged to develop emergency response plans with their families, as well as at work and school.
Many disasters that occur in the Greenland area involve water which, when left unmitigated for too long, can create situations that increase the chances of mold damage. Microbes need water to thrive, and when unwelcome incidents involving water happen, these microbes waste little time becoming a problem for homeowners.
SERVPRO technicians certified by the IICRC in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT) know the most effective techniques to mitigate microbial infestations rapidly. Our skilled employees ensure that the containment of infested areas within your home lasts for the duration of the job, protecting uncontaminated areas from possible soiling and infestation. Because moisture in the house can allow other colonies to develop while we concentrate on visibly affected areas, we use air scrubbers that remove spores that might already exist in your residence's air.
Removing that excess moisture, particularly after a disaster that brought water into your property, also must happen. Directly responding to every aspect of mold damage stemming from a previous disaster means more thorough remediation of the mold damage and effective measures to prevent reinfestation. Complete restoration of your residence's normal humidity levels and the elimination of excess microbial particles helps get things back to normal, just “Like it never even happened.”
Preparing for possible disasters beforehand can help protect your home in the first place, however, and when water never poses a problem, microbes can never begin growing out of control to cause excessive mold damage later. While September is National Preparedness Month, protecting your property should take place continuously. Obtaining materials to help you do this from the Red Cross can facilitate the task of developing plans and collecting needed information.
SERVPRO of The Seacoast desires to help families in all types of disasters, including those that cause mold damage. Call us at (603) 433-4300 for more information about how we can help you protect your home.
