Mold and Your Personal Contents

6/7/2017 (Permalink)

If mold has affected a sizable spot of your home it is critical to have it professionally remediated.  But what do you do when mold affects other things - the contents and furnishings such as toys, contents, playthings, blankets, bedding, books and clothing? We see an increase in mold issues after heavy Spring rains such as those we had this year in LODI.  

Here are our common sense suggestions:

Bath Toys - often fill with trapped water, mold breeding ground.  DISCARD.

Bedding/Blankets/Clothing - Fibers are food for mold and generally even laundering at sterilize settings may not remove the odor.  DISCARD & REPLACE.

Books - Paper and glue are food for mold.  DISCARD.

Plush Toys - DISCARD.

Hard Surface Plastic and Wood Contents- can sometimes be cleaned.

What if it is a special item, though recommended for discard?  Ask us - we will advise if there is a chance it can be restored in any way.  We understand some items have sentimental value but they may no longer be suitable for use.  

We recommend that an independent assessment be completed when you have visible mold in your home over 10 SF.  They will report which specific items must be discarded when we come in to remediate your mold.

Does Your Home or Business Have a Mold Problem?

6/7/2017 (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, SERVPRO of LODI can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Your Smoke Alarm is Telling You Something!

6/2/2017 (Permalink)

For the past 3 weeks as I've stood in my front yard of my home I've heard the constant annoying chirp of one of my neighbors smoke alarms letting them  (and me!) know that the batteries are low. While we joke that the alarm battery usually runs down at 3:00 AM, there IS a reason behind the madness!

Smoke alarms play a vital role in saving lives, and when properly installed, can reduce the risk of fire injury in half. The National Fire Protection Association recommends smoke alarms be installed in every bedroom, outside all sleeping quarters and on every level of the house. Business owners should consult the local Fire Marshall to ensure specific building fire codes and smoke detector requirements are met. 

Smoke alarms work best when paired with a fire escape plan. A plan allows your family, employees or clients to escape quickly and safely in an emergency situation. 

Smoke Alarm Safety Tips

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of the home, including the basement. 
  • Smoke alarms should be installed away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet from a cooking appliance. 
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the test button. 
  • Replace batteries in all smoke alarms at least once a year. If an alarm "chirps", the battery is low and should be replaces right away. 
  • Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

I would go 10 Stars here... honestly!  About a month ago I called in to have them come out because we had a small over flow in our master bathroom.  My spouse and I cleaned it up and dried it ourselves but I wanted to make sure we got it good enough to prevent mold.  Perry came out and confirmed we did great work and there were zero concerns with potential mold.  I got an estimate for future carpet cleaning and knew this was my go to company for anything they do.

....... well ...... the past Saturday I came home and opened our garage door to water dripping from the bottom of it and flowing from our laundry room door.  My spouse was home and our water out hose disconnected from the washer and went everywhere.  I was so mind blown I didn't even know where to start so I went straight to our breaker box and killed everything while my mind kept racing.  Honestly, I couldn't remember the name of the company that came last month but I remembered Perry so I searched yelp again looking for the highest ranked business in the area and called.  When the call was answered they asked how they can help and I literally asked " do you have a Perry with this company "?  She said yes but he is unavailable at the moment can we get the next available tech to help?  I said yes please as long as I know I'm with the right company I need someone out here as soon as possible...

About 15-20 minutes went by which allowed me to remove both the washer and dryer out.  I also cleared all the furniture away from the walls in two rooms and cleared out their closets.  Tom showed up, tested the radius of the water in the carpet, and got to work.  He was there for about 6 hours, came back after another job to provide a box to run everything so it wouldn't blow my breaker, and came back for inspection the next day.  After 2 days of following his instructions our home is finally back to where it needs to be.  I'm currently waiting for a phone call from Perry to wrap things up and schedule the full carpet cleaning.  

If you need work done please contact this company first.  Do it right... water damage can cause so much damage if it's not corrected the right way the first time.  We have two young children and the last thing we would want is potential for mold.  Our youngest who is almost 2 was calling Tom uncle before he left the first night and every time he came back.  She's is pretty good judge of "energy" so for Tom he got 5 stars from her as well.  Tom if you get to see this thank you for your work.  I'm glad you took me up on the Gatorade offers and enjoyed the music I was playing for you ^_^
