Why Choose AA Action Waterproofing?
Residents of Chesapeake Beach, MD, have super storms or flooding events caused water to infiltrate your home? If so, you may need to think about mold remediation services through AA Action Waterproofing. We are a proven leader in mold remediation in Chesapeake Beach and across Maryland.
What is mold remediation? Well, mold spores can appear quickly after a small amount of water intrusion, as early as 24 to 48 hours after water exposure. Mold remediation not only removes mold from your home, but also attempts to prevent any future infestation through a waterproofing process.
How Does Mold Remediation Affect You?
To put it simply, mold is a fungus that grows on different multicellular strata, like wood, and can cause a great deal of harm to your home and health. There are many different kinds of mold. For example, dry rot fungus is extremely destructive to a home’s wood structure, while other fungi precipitate bad reactions for some people. These reactions range from skin or eye irritation to fever and shortness of breath.
If you do not worry about water damaging the structure of your home in your future, you may wish to consider how storm surge and sea level rise will affect sewer and water pipes. One unfortunate consequence of living along the Chesapeake Bay is high sea levels and super storms, which brings about destruction through water overflowing sewer and water pipes. This flooding has the potential to decay wooden structure and efface walls by means of mold infestation. Sea level rise also affects high tide levels, and for low-lying areas, much like Chesapeake Beach, storm surge from sea level rise will too affect your home. The slightest raises to the high tide line, less than a foot, have the capability to snowball into greater problems, especially for the water and sewer system.
An analysis of high tides at Chesapeake Beach, from the independent research group Climate Central, found that local sea levels would rise four feet by 2100. If this measure is correct, Chesapeake Beach’s cumulative risk of flooding from storm surge would predict to a 14 percent by 2030 for a tide height of 6 feet or greater. These risk projections continue to 35 percent by 2050 and 100 percent by 2100.
A 2014 FEMA flood insurance map of Chesapeake Beach made clear that the flood areas surrounding Fishing Creek go out in some places over a mile away from the river’s edge. Even super storms, like Hurricane Sandy in 2012, have proven that these larger storms have a tremendous impact on flood insurance costs and flood risk to many citizens living on or near the Eastern Atlantic coast. And climate science suggests that many more of these super storms are to come in the near future.
Mold growth may be inevitable for many residents, especially for anyone who lives near Fishing Creek.
AA Action Waterproofing thinks about the potential threats to our customers, because mold remediation in Chesapeake Beach is quite likely due to Chesapeake Beach’s claim to fame as the charter fishing capital of Maryland and geographic location on the mouth of Fishing Creek.
What Does The Mold Remediation Process Look Like?
As you can see, these flooding scenarios are going to impact your daily life significantly, and so your next step should be to seek mold remediation in Chesapeake Beach from AA Action Waterproofing. In order to become prepared for a potential flood, it is advisable to waterproof your home, which can be accomplished within a few hours or at least in a few days. The process of mold remediation starts with using HEPA and wet vacuums to clear out most of the water and parts of the mold from the space. Then, any contaminated materials are discarded and damp wiping cleans the rest of the space for re-use. Finally, the drying out of the affected space is the most crucial part of the process, so any mold spores do not regrow again.
