If at all possible, water should be taken care of as quickly and as soon as possible.
The Basic Steps by a Restoration Company
Each water damage event and restoration project in Kingman, Kansas, is going to have its own specific circumstances, but the basic steps a restoration company will take to clean up a water damage event are:
- Inspection / Damage Assessment
- Water Removal
Where Things Start to Get a Bit More Tricky
As mentioned before, something to be mindful of is that each and every water damage event in Great Bend, Kansas, is going to have its own specific set of circumstances and factors, such as if the water damage is partially caused by flooding or if it is a leak from a pipe. Each circumstance would need to be assessed and inspected before a definite course of action could be planned and put into action.
Action Should Be Taken Quickly (If At All Possible)
The reason for quick action needing to be taken during a water damage event is that mold is almost a definite possibility if the water is not cleaned up within 24-48 hours. That is the approximate time it takes for mold to start growing in those conditions. Mold is just about everywhere, even in Great Bend, Kansas, and when it meets the right conditions to grow, even in a home, it will unfortunately grow and cause damage to the home, furniture, and even the health of those living in the home. So yes, if at all possible – water should be taken care of as quickly and as soon as possible.
What if you had a restoration company come in and clean up the water, but now you are experiencing mold issues in your home in Great Bend, Kansas? It would be difficult to say precisely why this is happening, but there are a few reasons that could be the likely culprit of the mold growth.
- It is possible that if the leak or cause of water damage was not completely fixed and it resulted in further water damage and mold growth.
- It is possible that not everything was completely dried and cleaned and this resulted in mold growth. For example, if porous materials were involved in the water damage it is possible that it could be the cause of further mold damage if these porous materials were not removed and replaced. Furniture as well, if not completely cleaned and dried, can be a culprit of mold growth.
- It is possible that there is a secondary leak or cause of water damage that was unknown and that is now causing further mold growth.
These are just a few of the possibilities that could be the reason one would experience mold growth even after a restoration company came in and cleaned up water damage in Great Bend, Kansas. And while none of these suggested possibilities are meant to be a direct comment towards or against any restoration company, if this is something you’ve experienced, please give FreshCo Cleaning and Restoration a call.
