Deerfield Flooding, Storms and Mold

Call SERVPRO for water damage from storms

After a disaster or storm when a significant amount of homes and businesses have been affected by water damage many people have concerns and questions about mold indoors. Any material that is wet must get dried quickly. Mold growth can occur within 48-72 hours in a damp, high humidity environment.

With a water loss from a Category Three contamination, some material may need to be discarded. Water from a flood that comes in a home is filled with contaminants, pesticides, animal droppings, fuel, and silt. With water intrusion in the home, the relative humidity temperature indoors can raise giving mold the perfect climate to grow.

Our SERVPRO of Highland Park/ Deerfield technicians are Institute of Inspection and Cleaning Restoration (IICRC) trained to remove water and decrease the relative humidity in your home after water infiltration. If mold is visible, there are different methods of removal based on the material that mold resides. At the job completion, SERVPRO of Highland Park/ Deerfield also uses an antimicrobial solution to assure that no mold spores will grow in the present mitigation project.
