Preventing Mold From Forming After A Flood


Mahwah Mold Testing After A FloodWhen you have had a flood in your home it is important to dry things out to prevent mold from forming. Floods make a terrible mess and require massive cleanup effort. After the water has subsided and you are safely able to remove everything that got wet, you want to begin the drying out process. If the flood was on a large scale, you should call in a professional flood cleanup service. Flooding on a smaller scale can probably be cleaned up by you and your family. Either way you want the drying out process to start quickly. This is crucial in preventing mold formation after a flood. Sump pumps, fans and dehumidifiers need to be called into service. Weather permitting, opening windows and doors can help.  Post flood mold testing for mold growth is recommended.

Unfortunately all of this effort doesn’t necessarily get rid of dampness after a flood. Water may have seeped into cracks in floors and walls. Mold may be forming and growing. Mold Testing NJ-NY is a Bergen County homeowner’s best and most relieable inspector and tester for mold. We can determine if mold has formed, to what degree, and what type of mold. We will recommend remediation service if needed.
