Why Mold Remediation and Carpet Cleaning are Necessary afters for your Flood Affected Home
Floods can be devastating and especially, in areas like Forest Hills, Hempstead, Huntington, Long Island & Nassau County. Once affected, you don’t forget it for a long time. But that’s the mental side of it. What about the practical side? Your flood affected house can similarly suffer the consequences of dampness for quite a long time, if you do not look after it right away. The whole situation gets out of hand when you do not get the necessary things like, mold remediation and carpet cleaning done, right after the floodwaters have receded.
Why is mold eradication important?
Mold can be dangerous for your house, especially black mold. The spores can burst quite easily and the germs can multiply in their thousands, spreading across your entire house and damaging the materials that went into building the house in the first place.
The spread of mold accelerates the spread of associated allergens and toxins that would pollute the air of your home, with you or your children catching some awful disease out of it. That’s unfortunate, but it is the truth.
Not only does your house deteriorate in quality, but so does the very environment that you live in. Thus, mold should be destroyed before it spreads and you can trust us at Flooded.com to take care of it.
Why is cleaning the underside of a carpet especially important?
Carpets generally soak in a lot of moisture and are able to hold that moisture for long as well. The thicker the carpet the longer it takes to dry up. Moreover, that moisture is most retained at the underside of the carpet. This situation is ideal for the growth of mold.
And since we clean the underside of the carpet less often than the top of it, we are giving a golden chance to those dirty fungi and germs to grow and nestle in. While mold can affect walls and ceilings, it can also affect floors, especially the areas that are carpeted. Therefore, it is paramount to keep carpets clean.
So stop thinking any longer. If you have a damp house for any reason, just give us a call at Flooded.com and we will make sure that your home is safe to breathe in again!
