The Flood Co., based in Centerville, Utah, is reaching out to local homeowners to warn them against delaying a mold removal job once a problem is noticed. This warning comes on the heels of a recent project that the company completed for a Utah resident who unfortunately did not have their mold removed as early as they should have.
Since the mold was not treated quickly at the property in question, a mobile trailer home, the cost of the cleanup and repairs far exceeded the value of the residence itself. In this instance, they unfortunately had to advise the owner to have the mobile home professionally demolished.
Speaking on behalf of The Flood Co., Owner Daryl Olsen says, “Unfortunately, this is a situation that can arise all too frequently if inspection and repairs are not carried out quickly, thoroughly and correctly. In this case, a combination of a leaky roof and plumbing leaks resulted in a lot of mold throughout the mobile home. So much mold had spread that we had to advise the homeowner to take the loss and completely demolish the home. The demolition itself must be handled carefully to prevent spores from becoming airborne. We do our best to return every property to its pre-mold state with the right equipment and protective gear. We are truly sad to say that, this time, the overwhelming cost of cutting out, cleaning and redecorating has cost this mobile homeowner their residence. It can do the same to any home that has not had its leaking roofs or leaking faucets repaired, or when mold takes hold and is not removed professionally.”
The company, a leading independent expert on mold clean up in Northern Utah, recommends having an independent expert assess any mold found at a home. To help those who want to understand what needs to be done before having anyone come to their home, The Flood Co. has provided mold removal guidelines on their website at https://www.thefloodco.com/mold-damage/ that can offer more detailed insight. Those exploring the page will learn that preventing the spores from becoming airborne is as essential as wearing respirators and personal protective equipment to help prevent future health issues. The page also summarizes the health risks of mold and provides the answers to many of the most frequently asked questions that any resident may have.
The Flood Co, a locally owned-and-operated business, has been serving customers in the region for over 20 years, providing a full range of disaster relief services. They specialize in water, fire and smoke and mold damage restoration as well as air duct cleaning. Any resident in and around communities of Box Elder County, Davis County, Salt Lake County, Summit County, Tooele County, Utah County and so on may call the company at any time around the clock, any day of the week, to get a quick response for their emergency.
The company has several online reviews that attest to the high quality and responsiveness of their work, the vast majority of which highlight the fact that they are truly committed to help ensure everyone’s well being as well as restore homes to their pre-disaster conditions. On the Google platform, Ryan Koller shares in their 5-Star review that, “I called about some mold issues on a Thursday and they were available to come out the same day to evaluate. I had a written estimate the following day, and we scheduled work for the next week. Everything was completed on time and within the promised budget. The crew was very knowledgeable and responsive to all my questions. I wouldn't hesitate to call them again. Thank you!”
The company stresses that evaluating the situation quickly is essential. Any delay simply gives the mold more time to grow and, if disturbed, the spores can become airborne and spread throughout the interior and exterior of a home. Often, agents appointed by insurance firms are limited as to what they are permitted to say and the questions they are allowed to answer. The Flood Co., however can respond to any and all inquiries since they act independently.
Josh Lewis says in their 5-Star review, “Daryl was great to work with and gave me his cell to communicate with him. I had a case where the carpet shrunk too much to salvage, and I reordered the carpet from Lowes, which makes you buy their pad with their carpet unless you have someone else install it. Daryl arranged for them to install the Lowes carpet so we wouldn't have to rebuy the pad, which was pretty awesome.”
Daryl Olsen responds, “We are humbled by the generosity of our customers who have taken the time to give their feedback online. Much of our business comes from word of mouth, but we often meet our customers for the first time at one of the very worst moments of their life. Sometimes, a cleanup can take a little longer than expected because all the mold needs to be removed, but we will stay true to our mission to make your house safe and see the job through to the end. We will do our best to get the job done at affordable prices, thoroughly and correctly—the first time. All too often, we are called into situations where another company missed a mold site completely, or where an insurance company’s restrictive policies have limited what work is authorized. We can advise you from the start to through to the finish and answer any questions you have.”
Those who have put off getting their mold problems evaluated are encouraged to call The Flood Co. immediately.
