The Truth About Performing Mold Damage Remediation Services On Your Own

Mold Remediation The Truth About Performing Mold Damage Remediation Services On Your Own Trust the professionals at SERVPRO to remove mold found in your home.

Mold Remediation By Professionals Is the Right Choice

Did you discover a small patch of mold in your Lathrop area home? If so, did you call a professional, or did you attempt to clean the area yourself?

Most people these days try to remove mold damage found on their Lathrop property alone, having little success, before calling a professional mold remediation company to take care of a much larger problem over a week later. Whether you believe us or not, it is true. 

More often than not, people end up spreading mold further, causing additional damages to their home and property while attempting to follow some do-it-yourself post they found online for dealing with mold growth in the home. Who can blame them?

A variety of different websites have posted remedies, with a slightly different explanation and approach, to mold contamination, they make it easy to get lost. Unless you receive professional training, you really cannot tell the difference, which leads to people making the mistake of moving forward with half of the information needed to control mold found on their property, correctly.

AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians here at SERVPRO would like to help you understand that regardless of the amount or type of mold found in your home, there is no match for the quality cleaning you receive from professionally trained mold remediation technicians, try as you might.

SERVPRO technicians take training concerning the control of mold found in your home and use a variety of containment methods, air moving, and negative air-flow equipment to prevent its spread. Spraying chemicals you purchase at your local grocery store does not provide you with a full solution you can rely on, nor should they be used as your only control method.

SERVPRO technicians physically remove contaminated materials, often replacing many contents that consist of organic materials mold uses as a food source. We transport and dispose of these items according to EPA, local, state, and federal guidelines while using small applications of an EPA-registered disinfectant to assist with preventing airborne spores from getting away.

Get professional assistance for controlling mold found on your property by calling SERVPRO of Tracy. We provide you with full-service solutions and help you understand how to prevent mold contamination in the future. (209) 834-0200

Wholesale Water Damage in Your Tracy Super Store

9/7/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Wholesale Water Damage in Your Tracy Super Store SERVPRO can help get your doors open sooner after water damage strikes your business.

SERVPRO can help when your commercial space experiences water damage

Bulk purchases are common today with both individual and business customers. When water invades a warehouse store, not only are other commercial enterprises affected, but members of the Tracy community who shop for household needs have their supplies cut off. Quick action from an experienced restoration company reverses the effects of water damage, often while allowing business as usual to continue.

The break of a major supply pipe in your Tracy area discount store presents a severe water damage problem. Thousands of items risk ruin and your many customers may not be able to carry on their own businesses if they cannot count on resupplies from your caches. Commercial operations that shut down for even a few days because of a water disaster often never reopen; statistics indicate half close their doors forever. The destructive power of water meets its match when our teams of water damage restoration specialists stand with you.

Huge outpourings of water need powerful pumps and extractors, and SERVPRO arrives with professional grade, truck-mounted equipment, so even a power outage fails to stop the restoration process. Once the standing water exits the building, high-efficiency air movers and dehumidifiers continue the work of drying out your business to business and retail spaces. Your store’s interior benefits from its warehouse characteristics, and we are able to save most inventory because it is stacked up off the floor. The lack of carpeting and drywall further speeds our efforts, and you operate as usual in the areas unaffected by the water or where our team completed the removal of water and restored appropriate moisture levels.

Improve the odds of a fast and thorough remediation by completing a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan and Profile. Experienced project managers assess your set up and help you develop a plan that shares crucial information about your commercial blueprint, utility shut-offs, and the priorities you set regarding which areas of a vast building require restoration first. Delegate authority to trusted staff in your organization to direct restoration efforts if you are unavailable.

SERVPRO of Tracy is ready to help with even a large commercial loss due to water damage. Call (209) 834-0200 to set up an inspection, and consider working with us on an Emergency Ready Plan before disaster strikes.

Water Removal for Manteca Self Storage

9/7/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Removal for Manteca Self Storage If you find your storage units needing water removal services, call the trained professionals at SERVPRO.

Quick and Efficient Water Removal Services

Even if you have 24-hour staffed security at your storage facility, unseen water can be filling some of the compartments. This problem may not be noticed until a tenant arrives to deposit or remove articles. An immediate response from an experienced water removal company is crucial to begin the process of restoration when a water buildup is noted.

Water removal is the first step to avoid serious damage within your Manteca storage location. If plumbing leaks or a clogged drainage system from your facility’s roof causes water to collect in storage areas, your customer's’ property is in danger of deterioration and suffering collateral damage like mold growth. We have the specialized equipment and IICRC- certified technicians to make water removal happen fast, and a response time that typically has a crew at your site within hours.

The construction of most storage facilities uses cinder blocks, a choice that poses some challenges when water is seeping or pouring into the structure. Each block has at least a couple of cells that can hold water you cannot see. The materials used to make the blocks, and the mortar that holds the blocks together usually is porous, allowing water to pass into and between the storage units.

SERVPRO water removal specialists learn many efficient procedures that pull water out of the main storage areas and the hidden accesses where water pools and may cause issues in the future. We start with submersible pumps and move to our powerful water extractors after the majority of the water is removed. To release water in the cinder block cells, we look to access from above or drill holes in the bricks or the mortar joints. The water then is suctioned or drains out.

To ensure we have removed all the moisture we use scanners and probes to measure humidity and moisture levels. Air movers and dehumidifiers are positioned to complete the water removal process. In some cases, we use heat to amplify the effect of both the fans and the dehumidifiers.

Reach out to SERVPRO of Tracy when you find your self-storage units flooded with water. One call to (209) 834-0200 gets an experienced team and cutting edge equipment on the job, leaving the areas dry and ready to provide the added storage room your customers need.

Mold Damage Possible in the Dry Climate of Tracy

9/7/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Possible in the Dry Climate of Tracy SERVPRO can remediate mold caused by water leaks in your home or business.

Uncontained water can cause mold growth in your home

Microbial growth is not just a plague of steamy, humid areas. It is entirely possible to find mold growth in a semi-arid area, including your home in Tracy. Finding an answer to a persistent mold problem is more likely when professional mold remediation experts weigh in with an inspection and suggestions.

Mold damage is a consequence of water incursion somewhere within your Tracy home. Water is always present indoors but is typically contained in pipes, sinks, tubs, appliances, and drains. If it leaks, seeps, or overflows you are faced with the potential for mold growth that will lead to damage if it is not abated. We offer mold remediation teams to homeowners and commercial clients in our community to ensure that mold proliferation is not a problem for you for long.

Mold spores are a natural part of both outdoor and indoor environments. They cause little harm as they float or collect on surfaces, and are so tiny we rarely realize they are there. When spores combine with water from a leak or a spill growth begins, all that is needed after the moisture activates the growth is a source of organic matter upon which the mold feeds.

Many structural materials and belongings in your home support mold growth once established. Wood and any surface or fixture made from cellulose like wallpaper, sheetrock, documents, or pictures are consumable by mold. Food, soaps, and even hair, dandruff, and dry skin cells nourish mold. No light is necessary, so mold grows unseen beneath cabinets, inside closets, behind walls, and under flooring.

Our SERVPRO mold remediation teams train extensively on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols determined to be best practices to remediate mold damage. We have the skills and equipment to respond immediately to a mold problem in your home. First, we contain the area with plastic sheeting and often use negative pressure air scrubbers to filter out the moldy particles and keep infectious debris from spreading throughout unaffected areas of your dwelling. Next, we remove the mold colonies and any porous materials they infiltrated, disposing of the infestation pursuant to local law. A sanitization with appropriate antimicrobials completes the cleanup.

Finishing cleanup is not the last step. Our SERVPRO crew also locates and arranges for repair of the leak or other sources of moisture. Mold remediation is only successful when water and mold do not mix in the first place.

SERVPRO of Tracy is your partner for mold damage remediation. Call us at (209) 834-0200 to schedule a consultation.
