Mould damage restoration and mitigation
What NOT to do if you need water damage restoration:
- Don’t use your regular home use vacuum, due to the fact electrical shock may result, as well as particular damage to the equipment itself.
- Don’t place newspapers on the floor as they will transfer ink to your wet carpet fiber and may cause permanent staining due to the pigments in newspaper.
- Don’t walk on carpet if possible. This will limit the damage, and will help to contain the damage from spreading to unaffected areas.
- Don’t assume that your underlay is NOT wet. The underlay and flooring need to be checked by professionals to mitigate mould growth.
