Understanding Mold

Mold Remediation Understanding Mold Understanding Mold
  • 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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. 
  • 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.

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate the “typical” process:

Step 1 : Emergency Service contact SERVPRO near you.

Step 2 : Inspection and Mold Damage Assessments.

Step 3: Mold Containment.

Step 4: Air Filtration.

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold infested Materials.

Fire Damage Fire Safety Tips Fire Tips

Though some fires are unavoidable acts of nature or unpredictable accidents, many fires in the home and workplace are avoidable. The following tips, courtesy of the NFPA, can help reduce the likelihood of a fire in your business or home.

1. Watch your cooking- Stay in the kitchen if you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. Never allow young children around the stove or oven, especially if they are not closely attended.

2. Give space heaters space- Keep space heaters at least three feet from anything that can burn.

3. Smoke outside- If you must smoke inside, have sturdy, deep ashtray. Never smoke in bed.

4. Keep matches and lighters out of reach- Keep matches and lighters in high cabinets, preferably under a child lock.

5. Inspect electrical cords- Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs or have loose connections.

6. Be careful when using candles - Keep candles at least one foot from anything that can burn. Blow them out before you leave the room or go to sleep.
