Mold Misconceptions

10/9/2019 (Permalink)

In addition to causing significant property damage, mold can produce allergens and irritants that can cause health effects. Philadelphia Area SERVPRO Professionals understand mold and mold growth and have the training and equipment to remediate the mold in your home or business.

Microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, so removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. 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 they 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. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Let your nose lead the way. 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.

There is a lot going on when fires are occurring/being put out; however, calling SERVPRO may be the only thing that should make sense to you in these situations. We deal with fire losses regularly and will do what we can to make your disaster "Like it never even happened."

As a property owner during massive storms or reckless, natural events, one of the main concerns we hear often is the water damage that seems to be inevitable. As it rains buckets outside, you may be wondering the harm that is damaging the foundation and contents within.

When water finds its way inside, it can do so with a vengeance; it will soak your belongings, seep within the floors and walls, damage keepsakes, and could quite possibly cause mold in certain areas if left untouched.

If any of the above occurs, or even spills on much smaller scales, water damage and the potential mold infestation afterwards could ultimately sideline your business.

Do not take water spills or floods lightly — you can leave yourself open to further damage if things go sour! Call in your local SERVPRO to handle all of your water loss and damage needs!
