Summertime is time for relaxing, taking some additional time off, perhaps taking a week or two vacation, a cruise ( well maybe not THIS year ), or maybe a trip to the mountains.
It is also the time of the year that we experience the highest temperatures with the high humidity that goes along with it, and of course more significant weather events here in South Florida than we experience during the cooler months. That weather includes the rainy season, which might mean rain every afternoon, in addition to the more substantial tropical storms, or even hurricanes we sometimes get this time of year in Broward and Palm Beach County.
The 2020 NOAA forecast predicts 6 to 10 hurricanes in 2020. Hurricanes can come in and quickly turn a perfect Deerfield Beach home into a danger zone filled with flood damage, water and mold damage.
In fact, according to InsuranceJournal.com, the frequency of water loss claims has increased by 46 percent since 2010...that’s an average annual increase in frequency of 8.3 percent each year. And what’s more, the severe nature of claims has increased 28% during that same period an annual increase of 5.4%.
And with high humidity, heavy rains, high heat, and the resulting water damage that accompanies these factors, we have the ideal conditions for the growth of mold in the indoor environment.
According to FEMA, mold spores and mildew begin to form within 24-48 hours of water damage exposure at a home. Still worse, most types of mold will continue to emerge and fester until steps are taken to mitigate the moisture, and start counteracting the emerging mold problem.
