That 4 letter word...MOLD!

4/28/2021 (Permalink)

The following are a few of the most common misconceptions about mold:

1) Mold is safe to clean myself

No matter what type of mold you think you have, it is always important to take precautionary measures. Because mold releases spores, the cleaning process can increase the amount of spores in the air exponentially. It is best to hire professionals, like SERVPRO of The East End. We are licensed and trained in mold removal and remediation.

2) This mold isn’t black mold, so it isn’t harmful

The color of mold does not always indicate its toxicity. Mold can colonize in various colors such as brown, green, white and yellow as well as black. Any significant colony of mold can create increased levels of spores present in the air. 

3) I’ve cleaned with bleach, so the problem is fixed

Watered down bleach solution is not an effective solution. The use of professional cleaning solutions and professional cleaning methods used by SERVPRO of The East End will ensure the best results.

Mold and The Spring Season

Mold and the Spring Season

The Spring season is upon us and with the season's warmer weather we often open up our windows and take on the task of spring cleaning. One step people might not think of is to check for excess moisture that could lead to mold growth and to also take steps to prevent mold from becoming a problem. Remember, the key to mold control is moisture control. 

Mold can grow on any surface where excessive moisture and oxygen are present. If mold remains undiscovered or unaddressed, the damage can become extensive and very costly. It can also negatively impact the indoor air quality of your home or office. 

If you suspect that you have a mold issue in your home or office, SERVPRO of The East End and Hamptons is here to help! We are only a phone call away, 631-653-9595.

When Spring arrives, will your home and office be dry?

Now that winter weather is passing, it is the best time to inspect your home or office building for weather related damage. Snow and ice buildup, heavy rains and strong winds can all cause problems with your property. Roofs, gutters and landscapes are exterior elements that should be checked to guard against water damage. Remember to look in attics, basements or crawl spaces for visible signs of water intrusion. Make sure outside vents are clear of any obstruction to ensure proper air flow.

Are you ready? Does your office have a flood disaster plan?

It is estimated that up to 50 percent of businesses that close due to a disaster, such as a major flood, never reopen! Of the businesses that do survive, the majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Are you ready for whatever happens?

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it is a small water damage or a major flood. The best time to plan is well before an event occurs.

This can serve as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be a supplement to an existing program that you have. By working with SERVPRO of The East End and Hamptons to create your personalized ERP, you're taking proactive measures and establishing a relationship with us.
