Mold Prevention During The Storm

Each year, during the hurricane season, Floridians brace themselves for the storms brewing in the Atlantic. Mold resulting from flooding during a storm can severely affect your health and property. Storm preparation could potentially save homeowners thousands of dollars.

During a hurricane, if a water leak is starting, it is crucial to begin the drying process as quickly as possible. If possible, try to find the source of the leak and stop it. When it comes to preventing mold, it is best to remove all objects that were affected by any leaks.

Mold Control After The Storm

If you suspect mold damage in your home due to a hurricane then immediately call a reputable remediation company to come and access the damage and begin testing. It is essential to avoid the affected area. Refrain from removing any objects from the affected area as that will cause mold spores to spread to other areas of the home. Inhaling mold spores can cause respiratory problems especially for people with breathing issues or weak immune systems.

Mold can also weaken a home’s structure. It is important to keep all windows closed even after the hurricane has passed. Humidity, especially in Florida’s warm climate, makes for the perfect breeding ground for mold.

File A Mold Damage Claim

When filing mold damage claims, the source of the mold damage can determine whether or not an insurance company will pay for remediation or cover the damage of at all. Insurance companies know that most homeowners have little knowledge about mold and their insurance policy’s limitations. This is where a trusted public adjuster comes in handy.
