Mold And Mildew After The Storm

With Hurricane Dorian behind us and all the rain and flooding it brought along with it, water intrusion and mold damage is on the horizon. This wind driven rain will impact your home or condo and you may not even know it. In addition to the rains we receive almost every day, this weather certainly has an affect on our daily lives, we have to take our children to school in it, as well as walk outside to get from point A to point B without getting soaked. These rainy months are always a hassle, but the long term effects that this type of rain can have on your home or condo can be devastating if you aren’t prepared, or don’t know who to call for help. In addition, we also have a few more months of the 2019 Hurricane Season remaining, so now is the time to get your home checked for water intrusion, mold and mildew. The health hazard from living in a home or condo with mold and mildew damage can impact your health quite severely. If you wait too long, the damage can get worse and the cost can quickly add up. As we all know there is noth- ing predictable about the weather. One day it can be hot and humid and the next, heavy rains and lightning, along with high winds that are often dam- aging. That water that gets under the foundation or into the struc- ture this is often a recipe for disaster. As we have passed the first few months of the hurricane season, you can see a pattern that will last, flooding, driving rain and the potential for mold and mildew is always present.

Never Fool Around With Mold & Mildew

When it comes to mold and mildew, we cannot take those potential hazards lightly. For peo- ple sensitive to mold, inhaling or touching mold spores can cause allergic reactions, including sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. People with seri- ous mold allergies may have more severe reactions, including shortness of breath.

At 1st Priority Restoration, this is what they do 365 days a year, and nobody knows how to prevent potential dangers like they do – and by dialing 1-800- 617-1112 – you can save financially - as well as with your health!

Very Important Information

There are some important ways we can prevent the spread of mold, and what you can do to get rid of it.

Keep an eye out for hidden leaks: Wet spots on your ceiling, at the baseboards or on the floor are a telltale sign of a leaky pipe or roof. Your homes pipes are behind drywall, which can leave a small leak unnoticed.

Mold can grow behind those walls and filter into the air through ducts or pipes. At 1st Priority, they can come in and assess the situation before it gets worse.

Did you know that many air conditioners, especially window units, are susceptible to mold growth! They often trap moisture, creating a breeding ground for spores.

Bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms create a lot of excess heat and humidity, espe- cially here in south Florida – whether it be from a shower, stove or dryer. All three of these areas should be well ventilated.

Education is key to anything – and when our health is at stake – knowing that mold spores can lay dormant for years after they are produced and could begin growing at any time is extremely important to know. Because of this, regular cleaning and having 1st Priority Restoration to depend on, will certainly make our lives much easier.

Year Round Service

At 1st Priority Restoration, being around during hurricane season - to help you rebuild and pick up the pieces after a storm - is fine, but what about the other six months?

If you have lived in south Florida for any period of time, you already know that the weather is ever changing, and for that reason, the rainy season can happen at any time. It doesn’t have to be a tropical system to cause flooding and everything that goes along with it.

What continues to separate them from anyone else is they can take care of all of your cleaning and water damage problems - as well as conducting leak and mold detec- tions, and working with your insurance company and adjuster.

to look brand new. The company also installs floors, tile, marble and wood - and stand by every job they do.
