Effects of Flood Damage to Indoor Air Quality

Failure to perform water and flood damage restoration, removal of contaminated materials, and reduction of moisture and humidity after a flooding event can present serious long-term health risks. Standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms, such as virusesbacteria, and mold. They can cause diseases, trigger allergic reactions, and continue to damage materials long after the flood.
