Why Specialist Water Removal and Repair Protects Properties and Reduces Health Risks

It only takes a quick look at the number of recent weather-related flooding incidents around the world to see how damaging the effects of water can be on homes and businesses. Increasingly intense hurricanes and typhoons in the US and south-east Asia have seen extremely heavy rainfall, which has caused rivers to burst their banks and flow unimpeded into buildings – causing hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of repair work.

But even when the rain stops, there is still a great deal of work to do. Securing homes and businesses with flood defenses, and then draining away the excess water, is only half the battle. Water is a highly destructive force and it usually requires specialist intervention to not only repair the immediate damage, but to also restore, clean and properly dry out affected property and items.

One product of excess moisture – whether caused by flooding or general damp – is mold. According to AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale, a water damage and moisture control company, effective mold remediation and removal requires expertise and bespoke techniques – and failure to follow these can cause serious health problems. AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale has a Florida license for removing mold and employs industry standard remediation and cleansing practices that follow the relevant guidelines, including IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification)S500, IICRC S520, NYC Guidelines, EPA Standards and NORMI Professional Practices.

The company also utilizes IICRC methods for water damage repair and restoration. With a 24/7 emergency hotline, AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale stress the importance of quickly responding to water damage in order to minimize the long-term effects. With mold growth possible within 48 hours of flooding, the AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale team can quickly be on-site to apply specialist methods of drying and treating the affected areas.

“Being based in Florida means we are all too aware of the recent heavy demand on our services, given the high risk of flooding from tropical storms and hurricanes,” says a spokesperson for AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale. “But for homes and businesses in Fort Lauderdale, the climate isn’t the only cause of flooding and water damage. Poor drainage, broken pipes and faulty washing machine connections are all extremely damaging sources of flooding too.”

The AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale team takes care of these problems by immediately mitigating the flood source in the short-term, preventing any further damaging water leakage. Their specialists can then repair any faults that lie at the heart of the problem, while employing non-invasive methods of drying, treating and restoring the affected areas for a full flood recovery service.

It is not only water damage that can lead to serious health risks in a home or business – poor ventilation through dirty or blocked air ducts and dryer vents can be particularly hazardous for anyone with respiratory problems. The AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale team is able to carry out HVAC air duct cleaning and disinfectant, coil cleaning and sanitation, using methods that have been certified by the NADC (National Air Duct Cleaners Association).
