How Flood Damages Can Lead to Mold in Your Shreveport Home
SERVPRO Technicians Understand That Flooding and Any Possible Resulting Mold Damage Go Hand in Hand
Between a defective levy or substantial weather concerns throughout Shreveport, the threat of flooding is a persistent one to the residents here. While you work to safeguard your home from these unfortunate circumstances, sometimes it is difficult to avoid entirely. Worse still, many of the damages take days to develop once oversaturation and dampness have become widespread through the property, and the result of this situation can prove even more of a risk.
Combating mold damages in your Shreveport home is not something that every homeowner ever believed they would be doing. While the threat of this occurrence is possible every day due to the volume of mold spores (occurring inside and outside of your home at any given time), the kind of widespread water damage that flooding brings can offer this compounding damage in as little as 72 hours.
While correcting the flood damage is a daunting task all by itself at times, our SERVPRO technicians actively seek to avoid mold growth in your home. This growth can not only pose health risks for the occupants of the house, but these colonies feed on materials used in the framework, walls, supports, and floors of your home. Until the moisture is taken care of, especially in low traffic areas or in wall cavities, these colonies continue to grow and thrive.
One thing that you should understand is that mold damage is nothing to be taken lightly. With the kind of widespread nature of this fungal growth, it can quickly get out of control. This damage is something that our SERVPRO professionals actively look for as we seek to restore the flood damages to your home and return it to preloss conditions.
Preventing mold damage might seem as improbable as preventing flooding in your home at times. Regardless of how it happens, you should work to get this situation resolved as efficiently as possible. Our SERVPRO of South Shreveport applied microbial remediation technicians are standing by to help you. Give our rapid response team a call anytime at (318) 865-4655.
