Does your San Diego home have a mold problem?

Mold Remediation Does your San Diego home have a mold problem? Please contact us for a free mold estimate: (619) 435-0365

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 here San Diego has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Preventing Plumbing Problems

7/20/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Preventing Plumbing Problems Do it yourself plumbing at it's finest.

It only takes a small amount of water soaking into floors, walls or cabinets from a faulty pipe, or bubbling up from a backed-up sewer drain to cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home or business. An IBHS study of closed water damage insurance claims identified plumbing pipes and drain systems as leading causes of interior water damage. The following guidance can help minimize risks posed by plumbing systems. 

Preventing Plumbing System Failures

According to the IBHS study, this type of failure costs homeowners time and money more often than any other source of water loss. The average cost of an incident was more than $5,000 after the insurance deductible was paid. The majority of insurance claims were caused by corroded, rusty, or frozen pipes, which can be prevented by proper maintenance.

Ways to Reduce Damage

  • An increased monthly water bill, banging pipes, rust stains, moisture in the walls or on the floor, and signs of wet soil erosion near the foundation are all potential indicators of a plumbing problem.
  • Setting the thermostat to at least 60°F in winter months, letting faucets drip on unusually cold days, and insulating pipes are all ways to reduce the risk of frozen pipes.
  • As a backup, let technology pay attention for you by installing a house leak detection system.

Professional Leak Detection

7/20/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.

More than just removing excess water, SERVPRO of Coronado / San Diego Bay SW restoration professionals have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or facility (including substructure materials) completely back to preloss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur.

Our professionals have the training and experience to identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage, remove contamination and dry materials to ensure that mold will not return.

10 things you should know about Mold

7/20/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation 10 things you should know about Mold Mold Prevention
  1. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.
  2. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
  3. If mold is a problem in your home or school, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.
  4. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.
  5. Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:
    • Venting bathrooms, dryers and other moisture-generating sources to the outside
    • Using air conditioners and de-humidifiers
    • Increasing ventilation
    • Using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing and cleaning
  6. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
  7. Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry completely. Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles, that are moldy, may need to be replaced.
  8. Prevent condensation: Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.
  9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (i.e., by drinking fountains, by classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).
  10. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.
