How to Handle Water, Mold, Fire & Smoke Damage to Your Property

Problems such as water, fire, mold, and smoke damage can be devastating for a home or business owner. Processes like water mitigation, aka water restorative drying, and mold remediation limit or minimize the damage caused by these disasters. Central Florida Restoration Solutions (CFRS) offers residential and commercial property owners quality water mitigation services and more.

Water Mitigation

Water damage is one of the most common issues found in residential and commercial properties. And the longer water sits, the more damage it can cause, including to your lungs. Typically caused by flooding, burst pipes and/or fire suppression, the best way to minimize water’s destructive consequences is through water mitigation techniques such as:

  • Water extraction
  • Complete structural drying, including hardwood floors
  • Dehumidification
  • Carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning

Working with a qualified water mitigation expert who has the right specialized equipment not only helps you deal with immediate damage but helps mitigate future issues that may occur. Tools like high-powered vacuum systems are designed to extract water up through carpeting and padding, pump water out of basements, and drain standing puddles around furnishings, filing cabinets, and other fixtures. Powerful commercial-grade fans are used to dry the area out as quickly as possible.

Mold Remediation

Thanks to Central Florida’s famous humidity, mold often grows on windows and other indoor locations. In older structures it grows on exterior walls as well. The higher the condensation levels, the worse the subsequent mold growth will be. According to the Florida Department of Health, indoor mold that grows and multiplies can seriously affect human health and destroy household goods, building materials, and important documents and records.

To help you avoid suffering health problems like allergies, infection, and compromised breathing, dangerous molds must be properly isolated and addressed to prevent spores spreading throughout your property. The source of moisture should also be identified and eliminated so as to prevent further proliferation.

Fire & Smoke Cleanup

The aftereffects of fire and smoke damage are extensive. Toxic gases, electrical hazards, and smoldering ash are just a few of the issues that make fire and smoke cleanup a tricky affair. Unfortunately, improper cleanup techniques can make the matter worse. Professional, timely, and appropriate action prevents heat, smoke, and water damage from getting out of control.
