Preventing Mold Growth After Water Damage

Water damage from a water heater can be very damaging to the surrounding building materials, especially more porous ones such as drywall, laminate flooring and MDF building materials.

Mold growth is also a common occurrence because of the hot water and this is the reason for professional services and emergency dry out. Any one can go to the big box store and rent equipment, set it up and expect it to do something.

We are trained to dry and/or remove building materials based on density, set up proper equipment based on calculations per IICRC standards, engineer drying chamber using 6 mil poly and tension post, and daily monitoring.

All of these steps ultimately are to reach the goal to prevent mold growth and limit damage to the building, typically we are working along with an insurance company to get your home or business back up and running as soon as possible so having a contractor familiar with the insurance industry is crucial.
