Damage Caused by Fires
Within minutes: Acid soot residues cause plastics to yellow; small appliances located close to the source of combustion discolour; highly porous materials (marble, alabaster) discolour permanently.
Within hours: Acid residues stain grout in bathrooms; fibreglass bath fixtures may yellow; uncoated metals tarnish, counter tops may yellow; finishes on appliances, particularly refrigerators, may yellow; furniture finishes may discolour.
Within days: In time, acid residues cause painted walls to yellow permanently; metal corrodes, pits and rusts; wood furniture requires refinishing; vinyl flooring requires refinishing or replacement; clothing becomes soot stained; upholstery stains permanently.
Within weeks: Restoration costs escalate tremendously. Synthetic carpet fibres may yellow or discolour permanently; silver plate is corroded permanently; glass, crystal, and china may require replacement due to severe etching and pitting caused by prolonged exposure to acid soot residues.
Damage Caused by Floods or Leaks
Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odours. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.
More than just removing excess water, IICRC-certified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or facility (including substructure materials) completely back to pre-loss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur.
Dealing With Mould
There is always a little mould present in any building, and this does not generally pose a health risk to its occupants. Once a mould infestation has been detected, however, clean-up and removal of the mold (often referred to as "mould remediation") is strongly recommended, regardless of whether the mold is toxigenic or not.
On hard surfaces: Removal of mould from hard surfaces can normally be achieved by using special cleaning methods developed specifically for eliminating mould. It is very important to strictly follow such cleaning protocols because of the danger of mold spores being released and spreading invisibly during cleanup.
On porous surfaces: Where mold has infested porous or absorbent surfaces, however, usually the only viable solution is removal and replacement of the material that has been infested. This includes everything from rugs to drywall, wallpaper to ceiling tiles. Where mould has penetrated behind walls and inside building materials, extensive renovations may be required.
