How Flooding Causes Mold Growth
Whether you have a burst pipe, sewage backup, malfunctioning appliance or a flood in your home caused by improper drainage or heavy rain, you’ll need prompt restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ. Moisture and warmth facilitates mold growth. Mold releases spores, which can lead to serious health effects as well as damage to your home. At Mammoth Restoration, we’re the trusted providers of mold mitigation and flood cleanup services.
Saturation of Porous Materials
Mold just needs a porous surface upon which to grow. It also prefers a warm, dark environment, which may be the case if the flood also caused a power outage in your home. A flood in your home provides this environment. Porous surfaces, such as drywall, carpeting, upholstery, wood furniture and trim, paper, cardboard and fabric, all offer an ideal surface for mold to grow. Our water damage restoration solution includes removal of these contaminated items.
Mold also needs a nutrient source. The organic matter in floodwater is an excellent source of nutrients. This is especially true in the case of a sewage backup. Our emergency restoration services include cleanup of any type of flood.
Spread of Mold Spores
Floodwater allows mold spores already in your home to easily spread from one place to another. If you don’t remove all the moisture and just set up fans, you’ll disperse even more of the spores. Our restoration company uses EPA-approved procedures to get rid of mold spores and restore your home after any type of flood.
