Water Damage Restoration & Mold Damage Remediation/Abatement
Featured Article By Kara Jovic
Health Concerns About Water & Mold Damage:
In today's enlightened era of environmental health it is clear that proper water damage restoration is imperative. There is more to water restoration than extracting water from the carpet and pad. Controlling and terminating the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew is the primary concern. In terms of the interior building temperature, it is important to note that mildew is not active under temperatures of 75 degrees.
Obviously water damage restoration must be performed by trained technicians who understand proper procecures and chemical applications. Trained personnel will provide the necessary adjustments to the environment by altering temperature and humidity levels to deter production of mold, mildew and bacteria.
Water damaged building interiors provide a "prime" environment for the growth and reproduction of mildew and bacteria. Both are parasitic, ie., they rely on dead or decaying organic matter for food. One of the favorite foods for bacteria and mildew is the decaying organic jute backing of carpets. This, coupled with warm humid air, creates the ideal environment for reproduction. Mold and mildew may cause allergic reactions such as depression, arthritis, puffy eyes, chronic cough, rheumatism, asthma or headache.
HVAC System Restoration
To complete any mitigation service involving water loss, mold remediation or fire and smoke loss, it is necessary to inspect the HVAC system, Thunder Restoration completes this task using careful, methodical procedures. If damage is found, the system is restored using state-of-the art equipment and techniques.
We inspect the entire HVAC system, using robotic video surveillance or less intrusive bore scopes to determine if the system damage is due to the current loss.
We clean the entire HVAC system using source removal techniques and powerful collection units.
We restore HVAC systems to pre-loss condition by removing the source of the damage and cleaning and/or removing and replacing the non-cleanable system components.
