Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) December 21, 2012

Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water damage restoration and mold remediation in the United States, is recommending that property owners check for signs of mold problems following any sort of flood damage to their property. Mold is the number one byproduct of any sort of water damage, and in a year of record setting severe weather, more and more home and business owners may find themselves dealing with mold problems.

Mold typically appears within 72 hours of any water damage or flooding problem, and that time frame may be reduced to 48 hours if the flooding in question is sewage based. Mold establishes wherever there is sufficient moisture to sustain it, spreads rapidly, and may prove extremely difficult to eliminate. Mold also brings with it a number of health hazards, ranging from mild allergic reactions to more serious problems such as neurological and respiratory issues.

It is important for mold inspections to be conducted in the aftermath of a flooding event, in order to confirm if mold is present, and take proper steps to remediate it before it becomes a problem too big to handle. Homes, businesses, and even entire city blocks have been condemned and demolished for no other reason than out of control mold growth.

Mold remediation professionals are available and able to not only remove the mold safely and without causing further propagation, but also to properly treat the affected area through sanitation, disinfection, improved ventilation and lower humidity levels in order to prevent the mold from returning.

Based in Cleveland OH, Restoration Local is one of the leading providers of water damage restoration and mold remediation service in the country, with contractors in 30 states and more being added every month. They are available 24/7 and all work is backed by the industry’s most comprehensive guarantee.
