The Key to effective water damage restoration
The key to effective water damage restoration is early response. Our team is on call 24/7 to help you mitigate the water damage. As soon as the water damage or flooding occurs, call us! We can help prevent serious damage and the growth of mold. Mold is a dangerous toxin that can spread quickly if water damage is not mitigated correctly and quickly.
The fact that mold reproduces via millions of tiny airborne mold spores is where the danger of mold lies. Mold may not always be seen due to its microscopic size, but even if you can’t see it you are likely breathing it. Since mold requires moisture to grow many people assume that if they don't see dampness there isn't any mold, but that is not always the case. You may think that you have dried up the water in your home after a flood or plumbing leaks, but unless a professional firm undertakes it then the site is probably not thoroughly dried. Additionally, mold can grow behind drywall, wallpaper and under flooring – all in areas that are unseen, but ideal for mold to grow. These are just some of the common breeding grounds for mold. They are the places that are often out of sight, and out of mind. Preventing mold from growing is one of the primary reasons that you should contact Water Damage Zone and Restoration of Northridge as soon as possible after the water damage occurs.
