“Everybody has at least 25 years of experience. One of my clients happens to be my daughter, and she had a water leak and that’s how I met Caleb. It started with mitigation of mold, which was a result of the leak. He was able to clean that up quickly and efficiently and interact with the adjustor and get everything taken care of, but that was just the first stage. He did a wonderful job interacting between the insurance company and the adjustor. Caleb did a fabulous job researching the case, presenting how it was a covered loss, and why it should be a covered loss, and he was instrumental in successful concluding the claim. From what I’ve seen, you’ve done a great job. The nice thing about the way you do business is that you have all the aspects covered. You’re mitigation, you’re restoration, and you’re a builder. Having all those attributes is very helpful in diagnosing and bringing something to fruition.” -Insurance Agent
The insurance agent and her daughter acted quickly by calling Caleb and team at Riverside Restoration. This prevented mold growth in her home, allowing our team to restore it back to original condition quickly.
Immediate damage containment is critically important to prevent further contamination, damage, and expense. Most insurance policies require that you take immediate steps to secure your property from further water damage. Two of the after-effects of a flood is mold and mildew. Both are terms used to describe fungi that grow on various surfaces, especially when moisture is present.
What is Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation consists of not only repairing the moisture issue at its source, like a leaking appliance or burst pipe, but also making a mold prevention plan to avoid future mold issues. Stagnant or built-up water from a flood provides a prime breeding spot for mold spores, which feed off of moisture and rely on wet surfaces to grow and spread. In moderate to severe cases of mold,we recommend hiring a professional mold removal service. They will have the proper equipment and knowledge to safely remedy the situation.
The most important thing you can do is to keep your home or office free from flooding and well ventilated. However, should you suffer a flood, whether, from a toilet overflowing, or water seeping into a basement, or a plumbing leak, it is important to address the immediate damage to avoid secondary damage.
