My property is flooded. What should I do first?
Time is of the utmost importance. Call Abbotts immediately so we can get to your property and start the process of removing the water and restoring it right away. By acting fast, you’ll minimize the damage to your property and prevent further problems, including mold infestation.
What are some common hazards associated with water leaks and flooding?
- Electrical hazards
- Gas leaks
- Chemical and biological contaminants in flood water and its residue
- Potentially toxic concentrations of mold and its spores
- Structural weakening in saturated building materials
What should I do to stop water damage while waiting for Abbotts?
- Find the source of the water and stop it, if possible
- Turn off the main circuit breakers to the structure. Do not operate electrical equipment in wet areas
- If safe, remove furnishings from wet carpet to avoid staining
- Remove breakable items and items that are susceptible to water damage
- Remove or lift curtains and other hanging items that touch the floor to avoid damage and staining
- Do not run fans or air conditioning if the damage is caused by flooding or a sewage leak – doing so can spread contamination
- Open doors and windows to allow air into the structure
- Make sure you thoroughly wash your hands and disinfect tools and equipment used in water damage cleanup
Is mold dangerous?
Yes, it absolutely can be. The Centers for Disease Control and other health agencies warn that mold spores can pose serious health risks for people with breathing problems. In addition, certain types of mold - including black mold (stachybotrys chartarum) - can cause adverse effects even in healthy people.
What should I do if I think I have a mold infestation?
Don’t attempt to clean or mitigate the affected area, as you can unknowingly spread mold spores to other parts of the structure and worsen the infestation. Contact a trained mold remediation specialist who will conduct a visual inspection and other tests to assess the problem.
When the extent of the infestation is assessed, your mold remediation specialist will recommend a plan to remove the mold and prevent its return.
If inspection and testing reveal a mold infestation, what’s next?
In the event of a confirmed infestation, your mold remediation expert will devise a plan to remove the mold and ensure that it doesn’t return. The plan may include removal of material that’s infested with mold, or the use of mold sealant and/or antifungal disinfectants.
