My kitchen is flooded, now what?

Moisture leads to mold and mold leads to health problems. Mold occurs when spores enter the home on a windy day or catch a ride on a human or pet. When the spore and moisture meet, it’s love at first sight. Add in the perfect temperature and it’s a recipe for disaster. Common types of molds that may occur include allergenic molds, pathogenic molds, and toxic molds. If the flooded room isn’t properly taken care of, the wood and walls can absorb the moisture and create any of these three mold types.

To avoid this problem, the kitchen must be drained and cleared of any water. We will check the fixtures and walls for any signs of mold build-up and general water damage.
