How to Defeat Flood Damage

Sarasota is prone to flooding and not just during hurricane season. Hence, it’s essential to come up with a plan now to be best prepared when a flood strikes. Time is truly of the essence when a flood hits, and an understanding of why this is the case will help you make the right decisions when it comes to recovering from a flood.

As the water began to seep into your home, it at first sat on top of surfaces for a moment before its molecules bonded with theirs. As it makes these connections, a process known as cohesion is taking place. Cohesion just means that water is bonding to other substances. The two begin to “co-exist” in the same space. As the cohesion takes place, the second substance, a piece of wood furniture, for instance, goes from being an environment unconducive to mold growth to an environment perfect for mold growth. This is because the water is now in there, and mold, like all of us, loves water.

Contacting a professional quickly can help you to reduce or eliminate the dangers of mold during flood repairs. A property restoration professional knows the best way to extract moisture from a variety of surfaces. Moreover, if moisture remains, your pro will understand how to use the right cleaning agents to make it impossible for mold to grow there.
