Can arise as the result of household or construction issues with the property. Here are some examples.
• Poor ventilation: over heated attic air or poor air circulation in the attic or crawl space resulting in moisture and condensation.
• Leaking pipes: older homes have problems with copper fittings or poor installation of PVC plumbing.
• Exterior damage to siding or trim caused by improperly placed sprinkler heads.
• Slab foundations: large settlement cracks allow water wicking into carpeting, or laminated or pine flooring, baseboards and walls.
• Roof leakages: poor shingle or roof tile installation, old and time to replace.
Water Damage And Mold Growth
It's important to note that excessive water on your property in south Florida results in high levels of ambient air moisture unless corrected by mechanical means. Run A/C and small dehumidifiers to maintain an interior moisture level of about 45%. Fungi thrive in the moist, wet environment created by standing water. The mold spores can rapidly develop into colonies of mold which may emit mycotoxins.
How To Handle Water Damage. Very Simply?
Call SERVPRO of South Brevard, a premier water damage restoration franchise that is always close-by. In some cases, homeowners seek to clean up the water damages on their own. Mopping up some pooling water from a small leak is fine. But, if damage has ensued to furniture, flooring, or walls, it is time for corrective measures by trained professionals. The HVAC, wall voids, attics, and crawl spaces must all be inspected for hidden pockets of water and moisture. Why expose yourself to health and safety risks? OSHA approved clothing, goggles, and safety gear are standard fare for this line of remediation. There are a wide range of health and safety risks that you could expose yourself to if you seek to complete the restoration process without professional help. Our water damage experts possess the extensive training, experience, equipment and cleaning products necessary to remove the standing water quickly and correctly, along with mold and musty odors.
