Flooding damages a building right away through the immediate exposure to water. However, greater damage is caused by the resulting mold growth within the affected structure.
Mold growth can lead to serious health issues, as well as damaged property, lawsuits, and even potential structural issues.
For a business, municipal building, or similar structure, floodwaters also mean one powerful truth: your building is closed for business until the damage is remediated.
We appreciate the urgent need for speed and competence when restoring a building that has been affected by flooding of any type.

Unlike other hazardous materials (such as asbestos) there are no clear regulations for "clearance levels" when conducting mold removal and remediation in Illinois & Wisconsin. However, the EPA has provided these goals for contractors seeking to perform successful mold remediation:
According to a study in the International Journal of Indoor Environment and Health, as much as 30-50% of respiratory health effects have been related to indoor moisture-related problems. These moisture problems include leaky roofs, gutters, pipes, extinguished fires, groundwater flooding, hurricanes, and more. When mold is allowed to establish itself and thrive in a building, as many as 20% of mold repair jobs may end in demolition.
