Mold of any kind is considered a problem

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

When you find mold in  your home it's cause for concern. Mold of any kind is considered a problem and something you should deal with right away. When homeowners find mold in their homes and report it to their insurance company, the process is often called "mold damage restoration." This is the process of restoring your property to its condition pre-mold.

There are certain things that must be done to make sure the mold damage is truly repaired and you won't have a problem in the future. Here are a few:

  1. Identify the location: where is does the mold originate? Is it growing somewhere you can't see?
  2. Find out if it is dangerous. Testing the area where mold is growing is a necessary step to restoring your property and easing your mind.
  3. Call us to clean it well. Small areas of mold can usually be cleaned by the homeowner with a disinfectant. But if it's more than 10 square feet, you should consider hiring professional help.

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home

Pumping out basements

Storm Damage Pumping out basements Pumping out water from basement

While Sandy is fresh in the mind of every American, it's far from the first storm to cause flooding in basements in our Country. Losing electrical power can lead to basement flooding if your sump pump only uses electricity. That increases your chance of damaged stored items and mold growth. Plus, staying warm becomes a challenge as the temperature drops and you can't turn on your heater.

"If you don't have any power in your house and you have water in the basement, you shouldn't be in the house," says the  Fire Department Chief, who says safety is the foremost issue.

If your basement is flooded with water from the storm, the first order of business is drying it out.

Don't go in the basement if it floods and you have power.

 Once you're ready to tackle the basement, it's time to call us (516) 742-1008.

Fire Damage Don't risk demolition of your property after fire. Clean up Fire damage

    Sometimes we think that we can save money by doing remediation or restoration work from a fire without contacting SERVPRO. This is a big mistake. Lets look at this case.

   "They treat me as if I've done nothing," says homeowner facing city-ordered demolition.

    Mr.Farden, 68, said that since the fire city officials determined the house was 80 percent damaged. He's spent about $10,000 to buy building supplies and fix up his house. "I've done a lot of work on that house to clean it up, and they treat me as if I've done nothing," he said.

   At SERVPRO of New Hyde Park / Mineola, we understand the frustration. We hear it every time in fire/water emergencies. We have specialized equipment, specific training, and certifications that allow us restore your home to pre-fire condition.

What happened to Mr.Farden?

A judge ordered that the house be demolished. Workers have been removing asbestos from the house, and the city has requested bids for the demolition.

Don't wait, calling will save you stress and money.

I have mold in my house,what does it mean?

Mold Remediation I have mold in my house,what does it mean? Mold on house kitchen

      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.

I have smoke damage in my house after a fire.

Fire Damage I have smoke damage in my house after a fire. Soot damage after fire

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of New Hyde Park/Mineola will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
