A flood on your property can be disastrous – both for the property itself, and the people in it. Water damage and mould proliferation threaten your buildings and your health. To avoid lasting damage, get help from a water flood damage cleanup specialist. 

At Ideal Response, we’ve provided flood damage cleanup services for over 20 years now. In this time, we have developed our own proprietary cleaning techniques. We now also have an arsenal of industry-leading water flood damage cleanup tools. This is why we can ensure the best service possible. 

Hire a professional flood damage cleanup company immediately after a flood has occurred. This way, you limit the extent of the water damage. Additionally, you’ll mitigate the risk of secondary damage such as mould proliferation. Reducing the extent of the water damage will prevent secondary and long-term damage. This will save you a lot of time and money, and protect your property’s structural integrity.

The Impact and Dangers of Water Damage

Depending on the source, the water may contain bacteria, viruses, chemicals and sewage. This is one of the main reasons that any victim of flood water damage should seek the help of a professional. To handle contaminated water, professional equipment and cleaning techniques, handling are critical. 

Dangers of Water Flood Damage:

  • Damp 
  • Damp Odour 
  • Surface & Air Contamination 
  • Mould Proliferation 
  • Electrical Hazards 

Hire a professional flood damage cleanup service provider like Ideal Response. This is your best shot at returning your property to as close to its pre-flood condition as possible. Do this immediately after the damage, and you can reduce the impact and dangers involved. You’ll also prevent secondary damage such as mould proliferation in your property.

The Impact and Dangers of Mould

Mould can take root and spread quickly in the wake of a flood or water damage, in some cases in less than 48 hours. Flood water is full of harmful microorganisms, like bacteria and viruses. This harmful flood water will contaminate any surface it meets. Damp and contaminated surfaces are the perfect breeding ground for microbial and fungal growth

Mould poses a very real risk to the health and wellbeing of anyone in your property. It also affects structures within the property. If mould grows on the surface of your property, the major risk to health are the spores that contaminate the air. These spores are invisible, but can cause life-threatening health issues. Mould can cause: 

  • Allergic reactions 
  • Respiratory issues 
  • Nausea 
  • Eye and throat irritation 

Mould and fungal growth can also damage the structures on your property. If escaped water saturates timber in the internal structure of your property, wood rot can set in. Wood rot weakens the wooden structure of your property, leaving it brittle and weak. 

If your home is currently affected by mould proliferation, you may be wondering what to do next. Your best course of action is to contact a mould removal service provider. As soon as you can, get someone to work on returning your property to its pre-incident condition

Considering the effects of mould and fungal spores, you need personal protection equipment (PPE) for any mould removal. At Ideal Response we prioritise the safety of our customers and technicians. Our focus is on delivering the highest quality service to make your life easier and safer. All our technicians are equipped with the highest quality PPE and cleaning technology.
