Post-Flood Mold Damage in Wetumpka
Fast Action to Remediate Mold Can Save you Money and Time
Heavy rains can cause the Coosa River to rise past flood stage, putting homes in the area at risk of seepage and standing water in their lower levels. If the water is not pumped out or otherwise extracted within 48 hours the risk of mold damage to the structures, fixtures, furnishings and other contents of the house soars. If you have experienced flooding in your home and begin to notice a musty smell or see evidence of mold growth on floors, ceilings or under rugs or in furniture, it is essential to take action right away. SERVPRO can be at your home on the same day to inspect for mold and to help devise and implement a plan to remediate the mold growth.
If the water in your basement was relatively clean after flooding, know that mold still can grow quickly.

We can start moving quickly to prevent mold damage if we get pumps and water extractors on the job in your home as soon after the flooding as possible.
