Mold and Bacteria Removal
During a flood cleanup the indoor air quality in your home or office may appear to be the least of your problems; however, failure to remove contaminated materials and to reduce moisture and humidity can present long-term health risks. Standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and mold. They can cause disease, trigger allergic reactions and continue to damage materials long after the water is gone.Try to be patient, we will get your property back to normal as quickly as possible.
