Unprotected plumbing doesn't mix well with super cold temperatures. The pipes inside walls or floors without the proper insulation can freeze up and burst. And that leaves business and home owners with huge messes on their hands.
What can you do? Your first thought is PANIC. Your second thought should be Mustang Disaster Cleanup.
We'll help calm you. Don't worry... we're good at what we do. We can even give you some quick advice over the phone before we get there to stave off further damage.
But hey... why not just tackle the cleanup yourself? Well, there is this little thing called mold that you have to worry about. If it didn't matter how long it took to clean up water messes, then we'd all be able to take as long as we want to clean up water damage. But mold can start growing pretty darn fast.
Spores can germinate after only 12 hours in some conditions, and others in probably 24 to 48 hours. Settled spores can become growing molds. And molds may colonize in one to 12 days, depending on the type of mold it is.
This isn't a scare tactic, it's just the facts. Of course every home or building has some mold in it to some degree, but when a big water mess doesn't get dried up properly, you're going to have an epic mold problem on your hands that will not be cheap in the end. And could cause major health issues.
Was your carpet wet? Is the pad beneath it still wet? How do you know? You can't really tell without the proper moisture-detecting equipment. Same goes for the drywall within your walls. Did the water get into the drywall, studs, and insulation? You'd probably rather not punch holes in your wall to find out. Let us come by with our moisture meter and see if you should be concerned or not.
But if you had water up against a wall or sitting on your carpet for even a short period of time, you're probably going to need some professional help to get everything cleaned up and dried out. Then, you can rest easy that everything's dry and mold is growing somewhere undetectable.
Call us for any mess or disaster cleanup and restoration project. We'll be sure it gets done right and we work with your insurance company so you don't have to worry about anything else at all.
