Many of these contaminants can become airborne and be inhaled causing disease, triggering allergic reactions and continuing to damage materials long after the flood. Excess moisture in a structure after a flood is an indoor air quality (IAQ) concern for a number of reasons, including:
• Mold, bacteria and viruses brought into a building due to a flood may present a health hazard.
• High humidity and moist materials provide an ideal environment for the excessive growth of microorganisms that were already present in the building prior to the flood.
• Excessive humidity in a building can foster the growth of dust mites that are a major cause of allergic reactions and asthma.
“After a flood, contractors know that the drying out process can take time, but not all realize that the growth of microorganisms may continue as long as there is moisture or the humidity is high,” said Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com. “Contractors facing potential or existing mold problems can turn to FastMoldRemoval.com for access to professional grade mold remediation and prevention products, applicators and personal protective equipment (PPE). These products include MMR mold stain remover – the most rapid mold remover on the market, MPI antimicrobial, HydroKlenz and ProClear to name just a few.”
