To avoid the growth of mold, it is imperative to control moisture within the first 24-48 hours of a water event.  Prompt response is so important, so don't wait to call SERVPRO!  

Before our professionals arrive on the scene there are a few thing that can be done to help reduce the likelihood of water or mold claims.

-Make sure you don't have any water leaks or standing water on your property.

-Check your insulation materials for moisture or visible mold and replace immediately.

Our SERVPRO professionals are ready to help mitigate your mold issues should they arise.  However, taking the time to check your property on a regular basis can help eliminate future worries and problems.  

Does Your Allen County Home Have A Mold Problem?

5/1/2017 (Permalink)

 

 

 

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

 

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
