How to Prevent Mold after a Flood
Time is not your friend after a flood. You must act quickly by removing moisture. Here is what you can do as a consumer to prevent mold and further damage:
1. Get rid of all standing water using a wet dry vacuum and/or pump.
2. Install a blower or fan or a, combination of both, and a dehumidifier.
3. Run Blower or fan until walls and items are dry.
4. Run humidifier until humidity is in the recommended range of 44 - 55% relative humidity
Quickly moving the air and removing moisture you minimize the risk of mold growth. Water damage is caused from high humidity and wicking properties of porous building materials and furniture. Quickly placing a blower in the affected area will begin to create air movement and increase evaporation. A dehumidifier will remove the moisture from the air that has evaporated. With these measures, it can help your chances of recovering quickly and pay less in repairs. If caught quick enough you can recover from the damage and may not need expensive restoration services.
