MOLD IS TOTALLY NATURAL, BUT IN THE HOUSE, NOT SO MUCH!!

Mold Remediation MOLD IS TOTALLY NATURAL, BUT IN THE HOUSE, NOT SO MUCH!!  WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU! WHY SERVPRO? We the experts!

Although they naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors, it is important that it serves it positive purpose outside of your HOME!

Mold is found everywhere and can grow almost on any substance when moisture is present. They reproduce by spores, which are carried by air circulation.

WHY DOES IT EXIST?

Mold is part of the natural environment, part of the Kingdom Fungi–which makes neither plant nor animal, but something in between.

Purpose of this organism? Why does it even exist? Well, without it, we would quickly be overrun outside with leaves, bark, debris and other dead organic matter because molds whole reason for being is to break down organic matter.

Therefore, outside, mold is a friend of ours; however, some friends are better left outside and not invited into our homes. Because when mold is inside, IT DOESN’T STOP BREAKING MATTER DOWN.

It will keep working and reproducing unless we keep it under control.

  • 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.

Tips to a Safe & Successful 4th of July

6/18/2018 (Permalink)

During the 4th of July, family and friends gather around for food, festivities, and fun. However, dangers such as fireworks, sparklers, bonfires, and barbeques become a possibility during this time. 

When building a bonfire, only use dry material and make sure that all debris is at least 10 feet away.  To extinguish a fire, pour water on all embers until the hissing sounds stop. Remember to keep a fire extinguisher nearby when dealing with bonfires or grills, and always keep children and animals away from these areas.

While most kids love playing with fireworks, it is important to never toss or throw the fireworks. If dealing with fireworks, please consider the following safety tips and suggestions.

  • Wear protective eye and hand gear
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets
  • Always have a bucket of water nearby
  • Keep unused fireworks in a closed box
  • Make sure all spectators are 25 to 40 feet away

We hope these tips well help you have a wonderful, fun and safe holiday!

Business Fire Prevention Tips

6/11/2018 (Permalink)

Here are some tips you can use to help keep employees and co-workers safe by preventing a fire from breaking out at your place of business.

There are many threats to a business owners livelihood – some preventable and others not. While not every fire can be prevented, there are some steps you and your employees can take to reduce the risk of a fire starting in the workplace.

- For starters, never overload an electrical outlet or power strip.

- Another way to reduce the risk of a fire is to keep flammable material and chemicals away from electrical outlets, power strips, and areas that experience higher-than-normal levels of heat, such as an oven or water heater.

- Excess clutter can act as fuel for a fire and help it spread to other areas.

Always keep entry and exit points clear as well as electrical panels and avoid blocking off fire extinguisher, fire alarms and fire sprinklers.

Of course, no amount of preparation and care can prevent office fires 100% percent of the time. Because of this, we strongly urge you to develop a fire preparedness plan and rehearse it once a month with your employees. In addition, making sure everyone in the office knows how to use a fire extinguisher (and knows where they are located) is crucial in the event that a fire does occur.
