Mold Cleanup and Water Removal in Elk Point, SD

August 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Mold removal and mold cleanup in Elk Point, SD, can be hazardous to your health and difficult to perform. It requires that the parts of your home affected are removed and/or sanitized with bleach or detergent to kill and remove the mold and keep it from returning. It isn’t difficult for mold to grow and become a problem. When something is exposed to water or excessively high moisture and the problem isn’t immediately corrected, mold can be the result. The concern for mold growth and infestation is the main reason you quickly remove standing water or water damage and get it cleaned up right away. The water removal process is critical in the fight against mold and mildew growth.

If you find yourself in a situation where you need water damage cleanup due to a burst pipe, or flood damage cleanup because of an overflow from a bathtub, dishwasher, or washing machine, your first call should be to ServiceMaster of Sooland. There are, however, some things you can do to start the water removal process to reduce the chances of mold growth:

  • Try to remove as much water from the area as possible. Use a pump, a vacuum specifically designed for wet/dry usage, or mop and bucket to try and remove the standing water
  • Use dehumidifiers and fans to start drying the larger items such as furniture and walls
  • If there’s carpeting or rugs that can be removed, remove it to expose the flooring underneath to help it dry faster. If the carpeting can’t be removed, blot it with towels to draw out the moister, and use fans, dehumidifiers, and other devices to aid in the drying process
