What to do after a fire?

Fire damage to your home or business can be very traumatic. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has published an article titled “After The Fire! Returning to Normal.” Here are a few excerpts from it….

“It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick. Be very careful if you go into your home and if you touch any fire-damaged items. Ask the advice of the fire department, local building official, your insurance agent, and restoration specialists before starting to clean or make repairs.”

“Contact your local disaster relief service, such as the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army. They will help you find a place to stay for awhile and find food, clothing, medicine, and other important things. Make sure you have a safe place to live temporarily. You have a big job ahead of you. Get plenty of rest and ask for help. Do not try to do it all alone.”

“Tips on how to handle the damage. There are companies that are experts in cleaning and/or restoring your personal items. Whether you or your insurer buys this type of service, be clear on who will pay for it. Be sure to ask for an estimate of cost for the work and agree to it in writing. You will find the names and phone numbers for companies that do this work in the phone book and on the Internet, or ask your insurance agent for a company they have used. Before you hire any company, talk to someone who has used them to make sure they did good work.”

Is there a mold problem in my home/business?

Is there a mold problem in my home/business?

Tiny particles of mold are found everywhere in indoor and outdoor air. In nature, molds help break down dead materials, and can be found growing on soil, foods, plants and other items. In your home or business mold growth can be unhealthy for humans and animals. People with severe allergies to molds may have serious reactions, such as hay-fever like symptoms or shortness of breath. People with immune system problems or chronic illness may be more likely to get infections from certain molds. Asthma attacks and headaches have also been reported from exposure to mold.

A strange smell is usually the first indicator of substantial mold growth. You may also see an area of visible mold growth that looks cottony, velvety, rough or leathery and have different colors like white, gray, brown, black, yellow or green. If you are unable to identify the exact placement of the mold and to determine where else it may be, our specialized equipment will take air and surface samples and send to a certified lab for a thorough review.

Controlling moisture is key to stopping indoor mold growth, because all molds require water to grow. Controlling moisture in Florida, or any tropic environment, is difficult with the high humidity that occurs a substantial portion of the year. Quickly and effectively removing water is essential to combat mold growth. Our company is available 24/7 for emergency water services.
