• Emergency Flood Response Team

  • When water damage occurs, time is of the essence and it is important that you locate a company that is well-trained and has the equipment to completely dry your property as quickly as possible in order to reduce or eliminate structural damage and reduce the chances of mold growth.

    Water damage gets progressively worse in just a short period of time and items that could be restored within the first 48 hours of water damage may not be restored if emergency response is delayed. You might even be tempted to clean up yourself, but you need to consider that water wicks up walls, travels under base boards, and the sill plates. It will penetrate through floor coverings into sub-floors, even causing water damage in the rooms below.

    If proper equipment is not used to control humidity inside the structure, items that were not damaged from original water damage could be damaged as a result of absorbing moisture from the air. Structures that are not dried out quickly and properly can become a feeding ground for mold growth.

    Mold Spores can grow on almost any substance such as wood, carpet, paper and/or insulation, as long as moisture and oxygen are present mold will grow. Mold reproduces by releasing tiny partials called spores which are invisible to the eye. When mold does land on a moist surface or moist area they can begin to grow. Living in hot & humid climates, there has been a growing concern for mold since the public has become more aware that exposure to mold can cause a variety of health issues and symptoms.

    Simply killing the mold with a biocide is not enough. The mold must be removed since the chemicals and proteins, which cause a reaction in humans, are still present even in dead mold. When removing mold and fungal growth all areas are contained to avoid cross contamination, all mold remediation technicians use protective gear, and the proper equipment is used and set up such as HEPA Vacuum, dehumidifiers, and HEPA air scrubbers to dry the air and remove airborne mold spores.

    It is always important that if there is a large amount of visible it will likely require that the affected area be tested by a certified hygienist. The hygienist will take surface and air samples to be sent to a lab for results to verify which type of mold exists and if there might be mold in other surrounded areas that are not visible.

    The hygienist will submit their results in a report along with a written protocol outlining the process that the mold technician will follow when removing/remediating the mold properly.

    Once the mold removal/remediation is complete, the hygienist will re-test the areas for clearance of the mold and provide a "Clearance Certificate" at which time your reconstruction process is ready to begin.

    Plaza is available to assist in selecting a qualified service provider for both a hygienist and certified mold remediator in the area.

    After a flood or any type of water damage it is always crucial to detect any moisture that might exist in the air or surface. Moisture meters are always used to properly assess all water damaged areas making sure the proper dry out is in place in preventing the growth of any mold or additional structural damage. We use a U.L.V fogging machine that releases a chemical fine mist into the air along with the set up of dehumidifiers and blowers. This procedure ensures proper dry-out of the area in order to reduce chances of additional damage such as mold spore growth.
