When we last talked about air quality, we told you that steam cleaning your carpets is a fantastic way to negate the symptoms of asthma in your home. It’s true! Having your carpets professionally (and regularly) steam cleaned can have a drastic effect on the air quality in your home.
Tales of Flood Restoration
Flood restoration happens to be one of our specialties at Aquamist. When a pipe bursts, or a creek runs too high, you might see us around to clean up the damage. Our flood restoration specialists have a lot of experience when it comes to tales of air quality. Water that gets into carpets, or even wood and drywall, can have an extremely detrimental effect on the air quality of your home in the future.
Mold Loves Moisture
Wherever water goes, the mold grows. Mold has an incredible ability to grow in the unlikeliest of places. Even during a hot summer like the one we’ve had, condensation in the walls can be enough to foster the growth of these little spore colonies. To fight this, be sure that your home has adequate ventilation. If you spot condensation on the insides of your windows each day, then you may have a problem. That condensation is building up in more places than just where you can see it.
If you think your home may have a mold issue, don’t start tearing out walls without contacting a professional. This is especially true for many of the older homes in Victoria. Asbestos is a real hazard, and you want someone who can tell what’s safe to remove, and what is not. Remember, this is about protecting your health by improving the air quality.
If you would like some more information on our flood restoration services, feel free to call us at any time. Even if it’s 3 AM. We understand.
