Water Damage Basement Cleanup: Mold, the Hidden Threat

Posted: 5 Aug, 2015 by:

Whether it’s a broken pipe or storm runoff, dealing with a water damage basement cleanup is serious business.

Significant standing water calls for immediate professional help, of course; we’ve covered what to do in an emergency. But we want to emphasize that any flooding event carries the risk for mold that you can’t see. That’s why it’s important to consult your insurance company and a disaster restoration specialist.

During water damage basement cleanup in Columbia or elsewhere, Catastrophe Services will look for mold in out-of-reach places like inside walls, ceilings, and ductwork and underneath cabinets or sub-flooring. If we suspect mold, we’ll test air quality to gauge the severity of the problem and then later to ensure it’s been eradicated.

Again, mold can grow from even minor flooding events—and quickly become a serious structural and health threat. Keep mold at bay by consulting your insurance company and a disaster restoration specialist for water damage basement cleanup.
