We utilize thorough water damage restoration processes to provide a safe and dry home after water damage incidents so that you can once again feel safe and secure in the homes.

How Matrix Mitigation Helps with Mold Damage

Enter the Property with Care

When your home gets flooded in a leakage, flood, or another natural disaster, you have to be as careful as possible when re-entering the house. As a precaution, you should turn off the gas and electricity. Also, wear protective footwear if possible so that you do not step on sharp and dangerous objects lying in the water. Put on protective clothing in case of the growth of mold spores.

Check for Mold

Wet areas are a thriving ground for mold, so beware of mold growth when you have a flooded area in your home. Mold can be dangerous to health, so it’s important to find and remove them and arrange for their removal as soon as possible.

Check if Structural Integrity Has Been Compromised

No matter how strong you think your house is, extensive water damage can sometimes compromise the structural integrity of a building. So check the foundation of the house, the walls, and water-logged areas for cracks and signs of stress on the structure.

Keep the Evidence

Before starting any work in your water-damaged property, you may need to document the damage because you’ll need it for your insurance claim. You can document this evidence by taking as many photos as possible. Don’t discard impacted contents.  Our team will assist in fully documenting and work to assign value to aid in full reimbursement.

Drying the Area & Inspecting the Plumbing

One of the most important steps in the water damage restoration process is drying. The method to dry up the water depends on the severity of the water damage. Some levels of water damage could require a brush, while others would need an electric pump.

Inspect Other Areas of the House

The roof is another area of the house that must be inspected to travel up there. The same goes for the walls and the attic. These are usually breeding grounds for mold, and you should have trained experts inspect these areas and dry them as soon as possible to prevent or remove mold.

Allow Proper Ventilation

Matrix experts will use professional equipment to speed up the drying process in your home.

Our Process

Some people may wonder why they have to call a professional mold service rather than handle a mold outbreak themselves. Here are a few reasons you should reach out to professionals after a fire damage event or a water damage event.

You must act quickly to minimize the potential to exceed these coverages.

Get the Matrix Advantage

When you notice a mold outbreak on your property, the first thing to do would be to call some experts to assess the situation. But while waiting for the experts to arrive, you can:

This includes all fans or any other air-moving tools in your home.

Avoid sleeping in a bedroom with a mold outbreak. Also, restrict other people in the home from accessing the area. If you experience a mold outbreak in just one room, shut off that room from the rest of the house to prevent spread until help gets to you. It will be a mistake to attempt to paint over the mold or clean up it yourself, as doing this will only help spread the mold.

Make an effort to find out the water source that’s feeding the mold growth and stop the water if you can. If the water source isn’t an obvious one, you should leave the job for professionals.
