MOLD REMEDIATION & REMODELING PROFESSIONALS IN SAN ANTONIO TX
Water that makes its way into your home can be damaging enough. Unfortunately, even after the waves have subsided arguably the most important part of flood cleanup begins – the mold remediation. Failure to have proper mold remediation in your San Antonio home can lead to the spores growing and spreading, eventually sabotaging your breathing air while causing damage to walls, ceilings, floors, and even rotting your house from the inside out.
The reason that professional mold remediation in San Antonio is recommended is because getting rid of the spores isn't always a cut and dried operation. Not every mildew growth is a highly visible scatter of black or dark green specks against white sheetrock. Many times the mold grows behind walls, under floors, or in any other hidden spot that spores can float through the air to. Plus San Antonio mold remediation can be dangerous – and it should be done completely and thoroughly.
San Antonio Mold Removal – Not a DIY Job
Mold remediation may sound like nothing more than a cleaning job that can be handled by any resident with a scrub brush. In actuality though, that couldn't be further from the truth. For any level of mold growth deemed 'significant' it is highly, highly recommended to bring in a professional like Superior who has experience in properly cleaning every bit of mold remnant from your entire home. Reasons why you should not perform DIY mold removal in San Antonio include:
- Your Body May Not Take Well to Mold Exposure – the special equipment that we use to remove mold growth includes personal protection equipment to limit our exposure. Some homeowners who try to rid their property of mold find themselves worsening conditions such as asthma and allergies – something that simply isn't worth the risk.
Professional mold remediation in San Antonio is recommended because quite frankly, mold has no redeeming qualities. Not only is it an eyesore that ruins the aeshetics of your property, it's presence can have adverse effects on your air quality and can cause serious health effects. There's arguably nothing more annoying (and damaging) than water in your home – where it's not supposed to be. Superior Home Improvement is experienced in San Antonio water restoration and has developed one of the most concise and detailed methods to getting your home back to normal after storms, broken pipes, or other flooding events. Our 'de-waterifying' steps include:
Emergency Contact / Stopping the Source
The first step in any water restoration in San Antonio is making sure the flow of liquid stops. The less water there is to clean up and the minimal amount that creeps into your walls, flooring, and other areas the better. Generally your best resource for stopping the water is a 24/7 emergency plumber in your area.
Inspection and Assessing the Damage
Once you've confidently stopped the flow of water into your home or business it's time to assess the damage. This is generally done before the removal and extraction part of the San Antonio water restoration process. The reason is we need to document the extent of the damage for insurance purposes. It should be noted, the water damage inspection process is very dangerous and should be best left to the professionals at Superior Home Improvement. Not only is sitting water a haven for mosquitoes, it can also be a ticking time bomb if in contact with electrical components – don't take the risk.
Once the damages that demand water restoration in San Antonio are documented, the process of removing the water from your home begins. The reason you can trust Superior is because we minimize the lead times needed in all of these steps as a one-stop contractor. You don't want to let water settle for days while you are waiting for damage documentation – we lower this process to hours. Our industrial strength pumps minimize the time it actually takes to rid your home or business of the water – thoroughly and entirely.
Dry / Dehumidify / Sanitize
Another reason to use a professional like Superior for your water restoration in San Antonio is because we can speed up the drying and dehumidifying process. Industrial air movers and high-tech humidifiers ensure that a heavy circulation of air cycles through the affected area. The faster we can get to the drying process the less chance mold has on setting up shop in your home and causing even more long-term damage.
