Things will need to be removed and a complete inspection needs to be made to ensure that every area where flooding occurred has been treated. Water may get into other areas of your home without being obvious to you but it can be detected by a professional who knows exactly what to look for. The only way to stop the mold is to get ahead of the problem. Get ahead of the problem by relying on the professional services of Mold Remediation Houston.

Getting Rid of Flood Water
You can attempt to do this on your own but this might require a lot of buckets, placed throughout your home and some labor-intensive work mopping up any water you find. Wait! What about the problem you will experience if there is carpeting in your home? You may need to completely get rid of the carpeting, however, our remediation experts can evaluate it to determine if this is necessary. In some cases, they may simply need to dry it out, remove any wet padding. If the padding has become too wet, it might be better to simply discard it. Carpet padding can take forever to dry out if there is too much water in it. It will also begin to omit an awful odor, which could be an indication that there is already mold growing.
Getting Rid of Drywall
Believe it or not, mold can also develop in your walls and the cavities of your wall. At least 12 inches of the wall that has flood damage will need to be cut away to prevent mold growth. If you should notice mold on your drywall, call Mold Remediation Houston right away. We’ll need to cut it away like we did the other parts of your drywall that showed signs of mold. Since mold cannot be cleaned from drywall, the only option is to cut it out. A qualified professional should perform this task.
