How Mold Remediation Companies Aid When Disaster Strikes
MoldTech’s mold remediation in Toronto is there for you when disaster strikes. If your basement has flooded, a pipe has burst, or there’s been a severe storm, it’s best to have your home assessed for mold growth as soon as possible. Black mold removal in Toronto can help you get ahead of structural and health concerns that mold growth cause and nip new infestations in the bud — before they begin to bloom. If you’re experiencing a sudden water emergency, here’s what you can do.
Actions You Can Take Yourself
Disaster readiness is the first step to a successful outcome. Here are MoldTech’s top actions in the event of a flood or water event.
1. Turn off the water
If a pipe has burst or the source of the water is unknown, turn off the water to your house to prevent any more from flowing in.
2. Remove standing water
Get rid of standing water as soon as possible. Use a sump pump if you have one.
3. Get air moving
The next step is to get air circulation going. Rent or borrow fans, open windows if possible, and try to dry up water as quickly as possible.
Air circulation will help evaporate moisture, but you want to get that moisture out the air ASAP. If it can’t leave the house (such as a windowless crawlspace), you may want to use a dehumidifier.
5. Call MoldTech!
We can quickly help you with site-specific actions, like cutting small, easy-to-repair holes in drywall to promote air circulation.
Hire Professional Mold Removers
Mold can begin to grow in as little as 48 hours after a water event, making swift action a key part of mitigating damage. Professional black mold removal in Toronto is the only way to ensure that your home remains mold-free after a flood, and it’s an important step in protecting your health and safety. Mold spores are highly allergenic and can cause harmful effects in even the healthiest of people, attacking the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
Professional mold removal also helps you accurately identify areas of concern, as well as the cause of the mold in the first place — once this is solved and the area is cleaned, mold shouldn’t return.
