You may not think about the health threats after experiencing a water related loss, but FEMA warns, "During flood cleanup, you may think the air quality inside your home would be the least of your problems. But standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria and mold. They can cause disease and allergic reactions and continue to damage the home and your health long after the flood"

When you experience a water loss it is important to consider the potential health hazards present and allow a company like SERVPRO of Bellaire assist with the cleanup, so you do not experience health threats which can go unnoticed, as mold and bacteria often hide behind walls and cabinets. Storm and water specialists like those at SERVPRO of Bellaire are trained to spot risks and eliminate them.
