If your home has flooded before, you know the damage that even a few inches of water can cause. In addition to destroying your belongings, flooding can also affect your home’s indoor air quality. Here’s what you need to know when it comes to the air you breathe after a flood.
- Don’t Put Off Flood Cleanup. Immediate water removal after a flood reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth inside your home. Warmth and moisture create a perfect environment for mold to start growing in as little as a few days after the event. The airborne particles created when mold and mildew grow can lead to respiratory issues, such as bronchitis and asthma, if inhaled for extended periods.
- Moves That Improve Air Quality After a Flood. Improving indoor air quality quickly is a vital step to restoring your environment. After the water recedes or you have the water removed, fans and dehumidifiers are used to encourage air circulation and reduce moisture in the area. We have effective methods of removing the water safely, disinfecting the area, and rebuilding your home’s interior.
