Disaster recovery: mold, water and air ducts


No business or homeowner wants to hear the word disaster when it comes to their office building or personal belongings. However, ignoring a serious problem or failing to take the necessary preventive steps often leads to disaster.

water and mold

Water intrusion and general dampness and dampness can lead to mold and mildew growth, “moldy” odors, and poor air quality. This in turn can cause health problems (allergies, asthma), loss of tenants and even lawsuits. Excessive growth of mold may damage the structure of the building. If mold is a problem in your commercial building, disaster recovery mold removal is a must (no pun intended).

A disaster recovery specialist can visit your commercial building to diagnose the source of the wetness and take the necessary steps to restore the space in question. A professional can do this by dehumidifying, drying or removing contaminants, removing visible and/or hidden mold with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums, and restoring air quality. Doing so will create a healthy and safe work environment. Catastrophic mold removal is also available for homeowners who need immediate residential care.

Emergency water removal

Floods can cause severe and permanent damage to a building if not quickly remedied, not to mention the fact that a commercial building must shut down (stop operations) until emergency water removal is complete. Excess water can, of course, cause mold to grow as well.

If your commercial building or residence has recently had water damage from leaking roof, gutters, pipes, flooding, or any other source, contact a disaster recovery professional today.

Quality specialists are experienced in handling many types of emergency water removal scenarios, including water contaminated with bacteria. It is important to act quickly and professionally when a building or home (and the people and materials in it) is endangered by flooding or excessive water.

Air duct cleaning

Air ducts are like the veins of a home or office, carrying hot and cooled air throughout the building to and from ventilation and air conditioning vents. If the air ducts in your home are clogged or dirty, this will seriously affect the indoor air quality in the home and general safety.

Air ducts remain occupied, which is why many air pollutants can accumulate inside them, including mold, bacteria, dust mites, and fiberglass particles. Not only will clean, free-flowing air ducts increase the health and safety of your home, but also lower energy bills – your HVAC appliances won’t have to work as hard if hot and cool air is flowing freely throughout the home.

Dryer Hole Cleaning

Although cleaning the dryer vent is often overlooked, it is an important way to prevent a potential disaster in the home. Did you know that clogged or unclean dryer vents lead to thousands of residential fires each year? it’s the truth. And like ductwork, clean, free-flowing dryer vents will help your system perform more efficiently (and affordably). Call a professional if your clothes seem to be taking longer to dry, if lint does not collect at the end of the cycle, or if the dryer itself feels excessively hot.

Taking steps to prevent disasters in the home or business can save hundreds – even thousands – of dollars, protect families and workers in a home or building, and create a safe and comfortable space to live or work.
