Hurricanes and Corpus Christi, TX
In Corpus Christi, TX, take care of ourselves and we take care of each other. But what happens when things are entirely out of our hands? What happens when mother nature deals us a hand we can’t win with? We found out in Hurricane Harvey and we’ll be working to move on from him for a long time.
Too many people suffered real and lasting damage from Harvey’s devastating dance over Coastal Texas. The damage from any storm can be a blow, but with one of this significance, there’s really no telling how long it will be before we’ve moved forward.
Water Damage and Your Home
One of the longest lasting effects of severe weather is water damage. Moisture, and the mold it can cause, are insidious problems. Long after your roof is repaired and your windows are replaced, the moisture that those problems allowed to get in will still be lingering. Because mold only needs food, air and moisture to survive, it’s hard to avoid and hard to get rid of. Mold “food” is pretty much any organic material. The sheetrock, drywall, shell, and mud that your home is made of is good eating for mold. The “air” part is pretty self-explanatory, so that leaves us with “moisture.” It’s important to note that mold needs moisture, not water, to develop. That means that the moisture that can seep into your home when there is damage to the exterior is more than enough to facilitate mold growth.
What Can I Do to Prevent Mold Growth?
Depending on the severity of the damage to, and the amount of water allowed to get into, your home there may not be much that can be done. However, a good place to start is with a large dehumidifier. Filling your home with things designed to literally pull moisture from the air is good. There are emergency and disaster clean-up services that crop up all over as soon as a natural disaster comes through. Be wary of any company that isn’t long established in your area. Fly-by-night charlatans make big promises, but often don’t deliver real results. Mold Test USA has been in the business since 2008 and we’re not going anywhere. If you are concerned about mold in your home, you can trust us.
