Does Your Cincinnati Home Have A Mold Problem?

7/25/2016 (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.

Space Heater Safety

General Space Heater Safety think safe

   Stay safe this winter by plugging space heaters into outlets, never into extension cords or power strips...When using a heater that requires a secondary fuel source such as kerosene take extra care when filling the heater and always store your extra fuel in an approved container in a different location.

   SERVPRO of East Central Cincinnati was called out at 4:30am to a home that fire fighters battled a blaze that started from a kerosene space heater. It was estimated that the fire started around 1:00am. The only occupent was able to safely leave her residence without issue. Once the fire was extinguished  SERVPRO arrived to secure the property and begin the clean up process. Fire investigators determined the cause of the blaze was started when a stack of news papers fell against the  space heater. A situation such as this is completely avoidable by following the manufactures operating instructions regarding safe distances to near objects.

   An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

General KITCHEN FIRE SERVPRO " LIKE IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED "

 Leaving the kitchen unattended while cooking is the number one cause of house fires. the following is a photo of a kitchen fire that was caused by an electric skillet being left on while the homeowner was away at work. It was assumed that the remaining food became so hot and dry that it in turn ignighted, as the flames grew the adjasent cabinetry became engulfed by the fire.in a short time the majority of the kitchen was consumed by the fire. We at SERVPRO take saftey very seriously so we preform a safty aduit to verify that the affected structure is indeed safe to work in. The clean up efforts on this project are not limited to the fire damage, the water used to extinguish the blaze left the residence saturated with a very dirty smokey water. So before we can start to remove the fire damaged matrials we a tasked with a proper water mitigation. The wet items that were destroyed by the fire are removed in the beginng stages, we dont need to dry unsalvagable materials. Fire mitigation can be a long process to put the home back to a "Like it never even happened".
