Floods can have devastating effects on homes and buildings, leaving behind more than just water damage. They create an environment ripe for mould growth, which can pose severe health threats and compromise a building’s structural soundness. In these challenging times, Red Alert is at the forefront, offering indispensable cleaning expertise to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.
In the aftermath of a flood, every hour counts. Mould can start to flourish in as little as 24-48 hours in damp conditions. Understanding the pressing nature of the situation, we at Red Alert spring into action swiftly.
Recognising the urgency, we at Red Alert respond rapidly, deploying state-of-the-art equipment and tried-and-tested techniques to extract surplus water, dry the affected areas, and stave off mould proliferation.
We bring along our advanced equipment and rely on methods that we’ve seen work time and time again to remove any excess water, dry all the affected areas, and prevent the spread of mould.By ensuring the humidity is kept at optimal levels, we make conditions inhospitable for mould spores.
Alongside dehumidification, we use air movers to encourage effective airflow and speed up the drying process. This approach is paramount to target concealed moisture pockets, often overlooked but potent hotspots for mould. With active air circulation, every part of a building, from the woodwork and plasterboard to the carpets, is meticulously dried, leaving no scope for mould formation.
Another key facet of mould prevention is our use of antimicrobial agents. Applied to affected areas, they disinfect and halt the growth of mould, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms. At Red Alert, we’re well-versed in the safe application of these agents, ensuring their judicious use based on material and contamination level.
Pinpointing and addressing the origin of water intrusion is central to our mould prevention strategy. Whether it’s due to a leaky roof, burst pipes, or foundation fissures, we work assiduously to find the source and advise on the necessary repairs. Taking such proactive steps is crucial to avert future water damage and repeated mould issues.
Moreover, we believe in empowering homeowners with knowledge. We offer guidance on preventive steps you can take, from ensuring adequate ventilation to using mould-resistant products and regular maintenance checks. We want you to be equipped to protect your home against mould and maintain a wholesome living space.
