Storms, the aftermath. The mold they can bring to your Riverwalk Home
After the Storm Is Over - Water Damage and Mold in your Riverwalk South Carolina home.
Often, mold growth begins anywhere from 2-3 days after a storm causes water damage. Mold is a harmful issue, and it can cause damage to your health, home and the contents within your Riverwalk home in Rock Hill before you even notice that your house has mold growth. The longer a house is exposed to storm water damage and the air spores that spread mold, the more difficult it will be to remove the mold. Common signs of mold growth include musty odors and discolored surfaces.
People who have allergies, asthma, immunodeficiency disorders, respiratory problems and weakened immune system are especially sensitive to the health effects of mold. Those who are exposed to mold may have symptoms such as:
Irritated eyes or skin.
Fungal lung infections.

Unlike DIY techniques, our professional service does not carry the risk of improperly removing mold, saving customers from dealing with further damage, health problems, costs and inconvenience.

However, porous items that are wet for over 48 hours and cannot be completely dried and cleaned must be thrown away, such as carpet, carpet padding, ceiling tiles, clothing, drywall, floor tiles, insulation, leather goods, paper, upholstery, wallpaper and wood items.
