Even a small leak or a minor flooding event can cause mold problems indoors.

Earlier in January, large portions of the United States experienced exceptionally cold weather that had not been seen in decades in some places.  The polar vortex that caused the extreme weather resulted in sub-zero temperatures that lasted for days. 
 
Once the frigid air system moved out and temperatures began to warm, an epidemic of burst pipes and sprinklers systems were reported in dozens of cities.  Even though many homes and buildings in the Upper Midwest and Northeast are designed for cold weather, the deep freeze was more than many pipes could handle.  In the South, were below freezing temperatures are not as common, many structures are not insulated well enough to prevent pipes from freezing at the extreme temperatures experienced during the cold snap.
 
When water freezes, it expands and the tremendous pressure it creates is enough to break both plastic and metal pipes.  When these frozen pipes that have been compromised begin to thaw the result is often water damage.  The resulting moisture can quickly lead to mold concerns.  In fact, mold can begin to grow in as short as 24 to 48 hours when there is sufficient moisture on many building materials and furnishings.    
 
“Even a small leak or a minor flooding event can cause mold problems indoors,” said Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com, a leading supplier of mold prevention and remediation products.   “Exposure to elevated levels of mold can cause allergies, trigger asthma attacks in sensitive individuals and even lead to infections in some people.  It is important that people who have experienced burst or leaking pipes react swiftly and any water damaged belongings or building materials need to be addressed.  At FastMoldRemoval.com we provide the tools people need to deal with mold growth, including MMR mold stain remover, MPI antimicrobial, HydroKlenz and ProClear.  These professional grade products are used across the country to quickly and safely resolve mold issues.”
