When you have a flood or water problem in your home, you might think you can clean it up on your own, but that’s never a good idea, even if the water problems seems small and simple. It only takes 24-48 hours for mold to grow in standing water, so it is a pretty serious issue. Structural drying after a flooding or water problem is a method of drying your home that can help to prevent mold from developing. A lot of mold remediation companies know about structural drying, and they can help you prevent mold from growing after a flood, so give them a call as soon as you can once you’ve got standing water in your home.
Professionals use specialized equipment to quickly and efficiently dry your structure. These include industrial fans and commercial dehumidification equipment to make sure that your home gets dry and fast. A great mold remediation company will also use infrared imaging to make sure that they have gotten all of the moisture out of your home. They will use it before drying to see how bad the water problems are, during the process to check on the progress of the drying, and of course once they are done to ensure that all of the water is dried up.
A mold remediation company will also be able to look for signs of mold development, and will be able to dry your structure and put your mind at ease that mold will not show up as an unwelcome visitor after all the storm cleanup is complete. In addition to structural drying, some companies can also dry your personal belongings that have been affected by standing water so that your losses will be cut to a minimum. This just shows that it is important, when dealing with flooding and standing water, to call in a professional as soon as possible!
