Homes and buildings damaged by flooding face a slew of health and safety issues for their occupants if they are not quickly and properly restored. Flood water can contain high levels of contamination and sewage, in addition to other hazardous materials.
Standing water, moisture and humidity in houses and buildings are breeding grounds for diseases, microorganisms, mold, and dust mites, and can result in allergic reactions or serious long- term health risks. Flooding can also disrupt materials inside properties that contain asbestos or lead.
COCAT’s Denver water damage experts are trained to extract water, and are equipped address concerns resulting from flooding. Quick and effective drying procedures inhibit growth of mold, mildew bacteria and other harmful pathogens.
