Reducing Flood Damage From
Once the water
receeds, your guard is down and that's when things can get much worse
for your health
Your home has been compromised
by a flood or high water. Your basement was under water and things got
wet. No matter if it was only your basement or two floors of your home,
you must take action to prevent mold from getting hold.
First, dry every thing as much as possible after the flood. Then get as
outside and in the sun as you can. Most furniture with fabric, carpets,
rugs, padding, etc. should be thrown out. You're not going to save this.
Hard furniture needs to be cleaned and thoroughly dried. Appliances
will need to opened and dried by a fan. Start running dehumidifiers as
much as possible.
That process can be very painful after a flood, but there is more. Your
possibly ceilings must be considered for flood and especially mold
Mold grows and becomes destructive to property and especially your
health. Drywall will need to be replaced after a flood. Many other wall
will need replacement too.
The issue is disinfecting the entire space. Even if the water was only
a few inches high, you'll have instances where it was "wicked" up a
wall by the paper in the material. Mold will grow within walls, under
wall paper, all over everything that remains wet for more than 48 hours.
You will also need to take action if your crawl space was dampened.
This is a tough area to keep dry once it gets wet. Fans and
dehumidifiers work, but they won't stop mold from growing. Over time,
the mold will infect your home.
can you do?
I have helped people with these problems before. A co-worker of mine
had a daughter-in-law that was continually complaining of migraine
headaches. She just felt ill all the time after moving into their new
home. The home sat upon an earthen crawl space.
She already determined that the problem was mold. She paid an HVAC
company to clean all the furnace/air duct work. That didn't fix the
problem. She kept informing everyone that she could still smell the
She got a quote to encase the entire crawl space in plastic. That was
about $7,000 for 1,500 sq. ft. and much too high to consider. That's
when I came into the picture.
I spoke with the daughter-in-law and found out that she felt better
after a day away from home. She always woke up worse than the night
before. She kept talking about the smell and how she could smell it but
her husband couldn't. These are classic signs of mold infestation.
She was seeing an ENT every two months. She was on medication. She was
going to a chiropracter to eleviate as much of the discomfort as
possible. She was spending a lot of money and getting worse.
I engineered a solution that attacked the problem source, not the
symptoms. The source was mold growth. Mold growth that flood victims
will have to contend with very soon.
The solution was less than $200!
She didn't have a flood, but you can expect mold growth from your flood
unless you take this information into consideration.
The daughter-in-law put the solution into action on a Wednesday night
at about 7:00 PM. Keep in mind, she has been in the middle of a month
long headache. She was taking all kinds of pills and it didn't get rid
of the headache.
When she came down stairs at 8:00 AM Thursday morning, she immediately
noticed that the "smell" was almost gone.
The solution was killing the mold and cleaning up her living
environment. She called me and told me that her headache wasn't as bad
this morning. She related to me that a couple of nights earlier that
her husband finally could smell under the sink and he thought there
might be a dead mouse.
The sink didn't smell underneath. The daughter-in-law turned on the air
conditioning and noted the air was a little better, but there was still
a slight odor.
On the fourth day, I met with the daughter-in-law and she couldn't say
enough about how well the solution was working. She thought they would
have to put the house up on the market, but not anymore!
Her headache was gone. She had been miserable for months, spent a lot
of money and remained miserable. For about $200 her issues were
resolved. The mold was killed and was continually being killed.
Eliminating the mold you can see is one problem. But the bigger problem
is the accumulation of mold spores in the air. We attacked them. When
we began destroying them, the mold colonies (mold you can see) began to
When I spoke to her again, she hadn't had to take any medication for
the entire week. Her headaches are gone. She is living again.
You can solve
your mold problems by clicking here. Or I can ship you the
same solution as discussed above for $217.00 and you'll definately be
ridding your home of mold whether you've had a flood or not.
This solution is restricted for basements, crawl spaces, and attics
only. After a flood, when you think the worst is over, the
mold that results from a flood can be devastating.
