Pensacola Mold Testing Firm Gives Tips to Prevent Mold Growth from Recent Flooding

Wed, 13 Jun 2012 10:23:52 EST

This weekend's storms in Pensacola and the surrounding areas have caused flooding and water damage to both residential and commercial buildings. EMSL offers some basic steps that property owners and tenants can perform to minimize the damage and risks of water damage. 

-Shut off electrical services to areas that may flood to reduce electrocution risk.-Move as many household items to higher ground or to higher levels within the property.

-If flooding occurs, safely remove as much water as possible. 

-Remember that water is absorbed and wicked up by many building materials, such as wall board, so removing standing water may be insufficient.

-Remove wet flooring materials, such as carpeting.

-Remove all damaged materials and household possessions that cannot be safely cleaned. 

-Set up blowers and fans to assist with the dry-out process.

-Use dehumidification equipment to remove additional moisture from the air. 

Avoiding water damage is the best plan, but if flooding does occur at a property be certain to act fast to deal with the moisture as mold begins to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

Consider using certified professionals (www.acac.org) with trained staff and proper equipment to ensure your problem is properly solved. With offices in Pensacola, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, FL.
