SERVPRO Tips for Home Owners to Help Identify Mold

11/2/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is everywhere. It is a type of fungus that grows from tiny spores that float in the air. It can grow almost anywhere that spores land and find moisture and a comfortable temperature, between 40 and 100 degrees F. Typically that includes about every damp place in your home.

You can easily spot the most visible type of mold, called mildew, which begins as tiny, usually black spots but often grows into larger colonies. It is the black stuff you see in the grout lines in your shower, on damp walls, and outdoors on the surfaces of deck boards and painted siding, especially in damp and shady areas.  

Mildew is a surface type of mold that will not damage your home’s structure. But other types of mold cause rot.  If the wood is soft or crumbles, the fungi have taken hold and rot has begun.

If you have a high concentration of mold, you may smell it. If you detect the typical musty odor, check for mold on damp carpets, damp walls, damp crawlspaces and wet wood under your floors, wet roof sheathing and other damp areas. 

If your property has mold call the professionals at SERVPRO of Auburn/Rocklin at 916.632.2250 "Like it never even happened."

THE IMPORTANCE OF CONTAINMENT

11/1/2021 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Auburn/Rocklin building a containment is a critical part of our restoration, remediation, and abatement projects. These barriers, often made with poly-sheeting held in place by tape, are used for a range of jobs. This may include the abatement of mold, lead, and asbestos, the clean-up of damage caused by fire, smoke, or water, or to keep contaminants and even crime scenes contained. Containment systems are also useful in reconstruction projects, particularly where stone or wood cutting occurs and particles such as sawdust are released into the air. 

Building an airtight containment is paramount to protecting interiors during restoration projects and minimizing the risk of contact with hazardous materials during abatement. Containments serve to:

  • Prevent potentially hazardous substances such as mold spores, asbestos, lead-based paint, and silica dust from spreading throughout the entire structure. These substances are very small and can easily hitch a ride on normal air currents found in most buildings.
  • Address concerns for health and safety, especially where airborne hazardous materials are present. If not contained properly, these materials can cause health effects and affect the well-being of nearby tenants, workers, and others in the surrounding area.
  • Function as a barrier to keep dust and other particles confined within a workspace, prevent further property damage, and make clean-up easier. Without proper containment, the cost of the loss can increase dramatically.

Containing the site remains not only a priority, but a necessity. A safer work site benefits all parties, and mold testing is more likely to pass the first time, reducing the cost of re-cleaning and re-testing. When you call SERVPRO of Auburn/Rocklin, you can rely on us to construct a proper containment and restore your home or business back to new.

Floods are a common and widespread natural disaster, often resulting from a storm damaging your area. Regardless of where you’re located.

It is important to remain mindful of the following safety tips:

  • Avoid floodwaters if possible. Even 6 inches of quickly moving water can sweep you off your feet. If you are caught in an area where the water reaches above your ankles, find another path, or walk another way.
  • The same rules apply when driving. If you reach a flooded road, find a way around, or follow the directions of safety personnel. Many vehicles can be carried away by as little as 2 feet of moving water. In extreme flooding, consider leaving your vehicle to find higher ground if rising waters do not subside.
  • Be cautious of consuming or bathing in water found outside. Diseases can be carried by contaminated floodwaters resulting in prolonged sickness.

Floods have the potential to cause extensive damage to property when not treated quickly, and cleanup can be an overwhelming task.

It is important to remember that smoke alarms save lives. If they are maintained and in good working order, they can play an integral role in saving the lives of your family members. Smoke alarms afford you the opportunity to leave your home quickly.

Understanding simple facts about fires can help save lives:

  • Have a fire evacuation plan for your family
  • Keep doors closed. This can prevent smoke and fire from spreading quickly.
  • Test your smoke alarms monthly. If they are older, replace them especially if they are 10 years or older. There have been so many advances that can help save lives.
  • The alarms should be interconnected. If one alarm sounds, they all sound – alerting your family to potential dangers.
  • When an alarm sounds, move quickly and safely outside your home. Treat every alarm as a serious matter.
  • In the event of a fire emergency call 911, immediately and stay outside.
