Removal Of Wet Damaged Materials:

During a flood cleanup the indoor air quality in your home or office may appear to be the least of your problems, however failure to remove contaminated materials and to reduce moisture and humidity can present long-term health risks. Standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and mold. They can cause disease, trigger allergic reactions and continue to damage materials long after the water is gone. It can be difficult to throw away items in a home, particularly those with sentimental value, however keeping certain items that were soaked by water damage may be unhealthy.
Some materials tend to absorb and hold water more than others. In general, materials that are wet and cannot be thoroughly cleaned and dried within 24-48 hours should be discarded as they can become a source of microbial growth. Microorganisms brought into the home during flooding may present a health hazard. These organisms can penetrate deep into soaked, porous materials and later be released into air or water. Coming into contact with air or water that contain these organisms can make you sick. High humidity and moist materials provide ideal environments for the excessive growth of microorganisms that are always present in your home and may result in additional health concerns such as allergic reactions. Long term increases in humidity in your home can also foster the growth of MOLD. Mold is a major cause of allergic reactions and asthma.

You may have to remove walls and floors in your home. The drying out process could take several days and growth of microorganisms will continue as long as humidity is high. If the house is not dried out properly a musty odor signifying growth of microorganisms can remain long after the flood. BE PATIENT! Your home will be back to normal as quickly as possible.
