You Need Professional Flood Cleanup From a Certified Flood Cleanup Company That Handles Massachusetts Flood Damage Events Regularly
Flood cleanup in Massachusetts often requires much more than just water extraction and dehumidification. When it comes to flood disaster cleanup, especially in areas where seasonal high humidity can be an issue, you need to thoroughly inspect all surfaces for any presence of mold growth, test all materials for moisture content during and after the dry out, and more importantly, inspect those areas that you can’t see, such as under the subfloor, and behind sheetrock and paneled walls. At SOS Rescue Restoration, we utilize state of the art testing equipment such as moisture meters and thermal imagers to see that which you can’t see. Remember, It’s always what you can’t see that causes all the trouble later. Simply extracting the water and drying out the visible surfaces just won’t do. Taking shortcuts here may lead to severe consequences down the road such as potentially harmful mold and mildew growth that can be devastating to all involved, especially those that are immunocompromised, are susceptible to allergens, or have other chronic illnesses and conditions that can be worsened by the presence of these dangerous pathogens.

Flood Cleanup in Massachusetts Should be Handled by Professionals Because There is an Associated Health Risk When it Comes to Flood Water cleanup Because as a Category 3, or also Known as Black Water Potentially Harbors Harmful Bacteria and Viruses
There are many things Massachusetts homeowners and commercial property maintenance personnel can do themselves, but flood cleanup is not one of them. Flood cleanup of category 3 water or black water as it is also known requires professionals with the proper equipment and disinfecting solutions to ensure the mitigation of health risks from a variety of dangerous pathogens often present in flood waters whether from river, ocean and ground water swelling or flash floods. Pathogens like Hepatitis, Norovirus, HIV, Tuberculosis, West Nile, Tetanus, and More can all be present in black water as most flooding leads to intrusion of sewage from one source or another via septic systems and leach fields, sewer systems, holding tanks, underground plumbing, etc. as well as pathogens present in other forms of contaminated water sources. When it comes to flood cleanup and emergency flood cleanup just after an event, the process is best left to professionals that can not only extract the flood water but dehumidify and disinfect the environment to keep further pathogens from growing like potentially dangerous mold and mildew. In fact, even conditions present during and after a category 2 flood event requiring flood cleanup at your home or business can lead to that category 2 water event quickly evolving into a category 3 class flood damage event.
Flood Cleanup Including Emergency Flood Cleanup Services in Massachusetts – Seasonality adds to the Challenges of Continued Harmful Mold Growth and That’s bad News
The presence of mold, or even the suspicion of mold in your residential or commercial property can be a frightening prospect. It’s widely known that exposure to mold, even minimally, can affect the health of everyone exposed. For those of us who are immunocompromised, mold exposure can be a life sentence. For those of us who are healthy, it could be the tipping point of sending us into illness. With so many types of mold, how are you to tell if what you smell or see is harmful?
“Any visible mold should be removed, no matter what its color or species,” says Tina Reponen, PhD, professor of environmental health at the University of Cincinnati. “In a healthy building, you don’t have visible mold.”
Of course, visually identifying mold growth or detecting a smell or exhibiting allergic or mold-related symptoms are all strong clues to the presence of a problem. Removal by professionally trained technicians is essential. In fact if mold is visible, testing isn’t even recommended by the CDC and EPA as all forms of mold can be harmful to your health depending on certain biological factors that are somewhat unique individual to individual.
“Don’t be fooled by people telling you that your mold is fine or is the good kind of mold, it simply isn’t true”
