How to ensure your house was properly dried after a flood?
After dealing with all the trouble of mopping the floor, drying the furniture and appliances, leaving the cabinets open for hours, your home is as good as new after that flood, right?… Well, not exactly. Some of the consequences of this event can only be visible mid or even long term.
There are tell-tale signs to look for if you suspect your home isn’t properly dried and has been a victim of fungi, such as unpleasant odor and stains in practically any surface, but be aware that a lot of damage might be out of sight until things get a lot worse.
Properly drying after a flood is the top priority. A damp house or facility is the first step for the development of mold, which not only has negative effects on your health, but causes structural damage as well and can lead to the decay of your home’s structure. Wooden furniture, appliances, beams, columns and walls are especially susceptible to this aggression, and rotting is the most dangerous consequence that poses a risk to your safety and your property as well.
While rot can occur anywhere around your home or facility, some places are prone to developing issues before others, such as vents, floor joists, girders and others. Sadly, making reparations is not always an option with mold, and replacements can be very expensive. Moreover, even replacements are not a definitive solution. Rot will be back if the moisture continues to be present, leading to even more costs further on.
By not executing sufficient drying techniques and letting the moisture take hold, you’re exposing yourself to health issues, structural damage, and very high repair and replacement costs. Luckily, there’s a way to avoid all this: by ensuring your house was properly dried after a flood. Taking the right measures right after the incident occurred by yourself, or even better, have the work done by professionals who can guarantee an amazing job.
