Find all the moisture
Where has the water traveled? Has it gone behind walls? Up walls? Into your crawlspace? Into adjoining rooms? Into your subfloor or behind your cabinets? You aren’t going to be able to track down all of the moisture problems, at which point there’s no chance you’ll be able to dry out areas you don’t even know are wet. Most Harrison County, MS homeowners think they can feel or see the problems. We can’t even do that, and we deal with water damage on a daily basis. Coastal Carpet and Tile Cleaning has no less than a half dozen different moisture detection systems at all times so we can find moisture no matter where it might be hiding.
Dry quickly without over drying
There’s 2 actions there, both of which you aren’t going to be able to do. One is dry quickly. You’ve got about 48 hours to 72 hours before black mold growth occurs. The only way to stop it in its tracks is to remove the moisture it needs to grow by calling Coastal Carpet and Tile Cleaning. We utilize the most advanced drying systems and techniques in Jackson County, MS and it allows us to move at a speed you couldn’t dream of.
The second thing of note in that statement is not over drying. Did you know every surface in your Biloxi, MS home has some moisture in it and it needs that moisture to maintain the qualities and aesthetics you want? When we dry homes at Coastal Carpet and Tile Cleaning, the goal is its dry standard. In other words, to get each surface back to the same moisture readings it had before it got wet. If you dry too much, you ruin the surfaces, at which point they have to be yanked out and replaced.
