We can help with Mold Damage

10/16/2020 (Permalink)

Mold problems? Let us help!

The most common reasons for mold growth are humidity, water leaks, and condensation.  Condensation generally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools, and loses its capacity to hold vapor. As a result, excess water vapor condenses to form cloud droplets. Those droplets can create a mold issue.

When you suspect you have mold damage, it is best to call a professional. Mold damage can create a lot of issues down the road if not taken care of right away.

Mold is known for hiding and usually grows behind the walls and out of sight. Mold likes these spaces because they hold large amounts of humid moist air. To find mold, most of the time you will need to have a professional preform an invasive inspection.

Hire a professional--

You want a professional who knows what to look for and why. When mold is present there are certain measures you have to take to make sure it is properly removed.

Call our offices today!

If you suspect you may have a mold problem call the professionals at SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties today. We offer mold testing so we can help you in the most efficient and effective way possible.

  • SQUEEZE the handle to release the fire extinguishing agent
  • SWEEP the nozzle from side to side until the fire appears to be out

Use these P.A.S.S. tips to safely and effectively use the fire extinguisher in your home. 

Don't forget the water!

Going on vacation? 

When you are going on a trip with family or with friends, you make a list of things to pack or do before you leave. Most of the items on that list have to do with pets, or neighbors, or checklists of what to bring. You pack up your items for a great week, or weeks, away from home. You have a great time with friends or family, and it can all be ruined in a matter of minutes when you return home. When you open that front door and there is water four inches high in your basement or living room:

Did you put your home water supply on that all too important list? 

In a lot of cases, we see water damages because folks have forgotten to turn their water off before they take a vacation or extended trip. It is always a good reminder to turn your water heater OFF. 

When you turn your water off, you take the pressure off the house. You are much less likely to come to emergency damages, if you have turned your water off.

Keep up to date on electrical wiring and water shut-offs before you leave for an extended vacation. We are always here to help during your emergencies. But, if you follow our tips, there may be less of those for you to have to worry about. 

Enjoy that vacation or trip with family and friends, but do not forget the water coursing through the pipes of your home. Put "remember the water" at the top of your next vacay check-list!

Storm and Hurricane Season are Here!

Every year tornadoes cost about $400 million in damage across the United States every year, with an average cost of $8,179 per house. We want you and your family to be prepared, follow these tips to stay safe during this storm season.

  • The best way to be prepared for storm damage is to have an insurance policy that covers storm-related damage. Check with your insurance provider to make sure damage from wind, lightning and falling tree branches. You should make sure you are covered now, before the storm comes through. 
  • We want you to keep your family safe, so make sure you are prepared by having a family plan. You should have a designated shelter area that is in the basement or ground level. This area should have no windows and enough room for your entire family to stay in for a few hours until the storm is over. In this area you should have essentials such as: includes flashlights, a first aid kit, and blankets for if the power goes out. 
  • Having a generator is the best way to get proactive before the storm. You don't want to be buying one after the storm has occurred when everyone is trying to get one too.

Storms are some of the worst weather events to hit your home or business. Stay prepared with these tips. If you need help, after the storm call us. We are here to help!
