3 Reasons to Call The Steam Team After Fire Damage

Damages to a home by fire and smoke can be a catastrophic event, and often lead to the loss of personal items, finances, and in some cases even your entire home. Though it may seem unthinkable, you should always have a plan for fire damage. Here are three reasons that your plan should involve The Steam Team.

 

Too Dangerous To Do Alone

In the event that a fire does take place in your home, who’s going to take up the job of cleaning and restoration? Maybe you’ll decide to save a buck by doing it all by yourself. Odds are, you wouldn’t have the means to. To do so, you would need the proper safety attire, tarps, industrial strength water pumps, a press extractor, cleaning materials and much more.

 

Even with all of this, you’re putting yourself at great risk by entering the damaged property. There may still be dangerous burning chemicals, or burned material in the air that would be harmful to breathe. The only way to ensure your safety and the proper care for your home is by hiring a professional team.

Fighting Mold Contamination By The Steam Team of Austin

Mold Damage

Mold Damage

There are several dangers to mold growth: harm to those with allergies, asthma, other illnesses, and of course the spread of bacteria. And it doesn’t take long for mold to begin growing, either. So it’s very important that we catch it as soon as possible, and remove the issue from our homes. Here are three steps to take to fight mold contamination! Call The Steam Team for mold remediation. We are the leader in mold removal and licensed by The State of Texas #RCO1264

 

Dry Up Wet Spills Immediately

 

Don’t let spills sit! Act quickly, and you won’t regret the effort. The longer a wet spill sits on your carpet, hardwood, or upholstery, the more likely it is that mold will grow. Clean spills immediately; you can even use a dehumidifier if there’s a lot of liquid.

 

Inspect Your Home for Leaks

 

Always watch out for leaks in and around the home. It can be as simple as your shower head misfiring and soaking the ceiling or wall with water each time it’s used. Do what you can to keep these areas dry, as moist areas are a perfect breeding ground for mold spores.

 

Wear Protection While Cleaning

 

It’s important to protect your health and wellbeing while cleaning up a moldy situation. Wear a protective mask at all times to prevent inhaling mold spores. You can buy such masks at your local pharmacy or department stores. Remember: your health and safety comes first!


Don’t forget- in the case of an emergency (such as a flood) call the professionals immediately. Mold only needs twenty four hours to begin to grow and take over your home, and the professionals are the best ones for the job! They have the right equipment and expertise for any mold remediation situation.
