4 Steps You Must Do to Prevent Mold and Wood Rot
1. YOUR ENTIRE HOME IS AT RISK! Moisture will not only destroy carpet, drywall, and hardwood floors. It absorbs into the wood structure of your home and continues to do damage until mitigation has taken place to stop more damage. As little as 1 inch of flood water can cause major damage.
2. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION! The longer you wait, the more damage will be done. In some cases, failure to take immediate action after a water damage loss could limit your insurance coverage. Water inside your home is an emergency.
3. PREVENT MOLD and WOOD ROT! If your home isn’t properly dried before re-building, mold and wood rot can occur. Professional drying equipment can be used to dry your home. Special dehumidifiers are used to pull moisture out of your home’s wood structure. If you have flood insurance, your insurance company pays for this in most cases.
4. INSURANCE COMPANY BILLING! Your insurance company wants you to call a professional water restoration company to STOP further damage. Call A Clean Pro now for 24 hour / 7 days a week emergency service at 661-733-1550

WARNING! Your Home Structure Could Be at Risk!
Even though your wood structure may look dry, chances are it is NOT DRY. Your hand cannot feel the low amount of moisture is takes for mold and wood rot to occur once the drywall is built back. That’s why we use thermal image cameras and moisture meters to test moisture amounts BEFORE we declare a home dry. This is so important because if the wood inside your walls has over a 15% moisture reading, your home is subject to mold and wood destroying organisms.
So call me for your thermal image inspection. I’ll give you an honest evaluation. Call my office at 760-245-5556 and tell my office you need an inspection right away.
