How Mold gets into your Property

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

Roof and foundation leaks are the top sources of moisture building up in houses, which could lead to mold and mildew.  

Other ways mold can creep into your home include but are not limited to entering through doorways, windows, vents, air conditioning, and heating systems. 

It’s so imperative to routinely inspect your roof for cracks or leaks and all the spaces noted above that have the potential to welcome and build mold — especially the restroom, where black mold can easily build up without proper ventilation. 

If you spot or suspect mold in your home, do NOT hesitate to give us a call. Our team of restoration professionals is available to you 24/7 with a plan of action to minimize the damage to your property. 

Proactive or Reactive

By now, it’s no secret that SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms offer COVID-19 cleanings as one of our numerous services. What many people may not know is that SERVPRO also offers more routine types of commercial and residential cleaning services, as well.

Routine, I say? Routine, indeed.

A common mistake that we see time and again are home or business owners being reactive as opposed to proactive. The reasons for this are numerous. What it all boils down to is this:

You don’t know what you don’t know.

In other words, many people have no idea that routine duct cleaning in their business may offer sufferers of seasonal allergies some relief. More importantly, it may tip owners off to a mold infestation they may not have been privy to. It also acts as a type of “test” to ensure their HVAC system is working properly.

Let’s even assume that a home or business owner is aware of an issue. For the sake of argument, let’s say mold. It’s impossible to determine whether or not that black spot on your wall is harmful mold. SERVPRO works alongside environmental testing agencies that can determine that beyond a shadow of a doubt. If it proves to be problematic, we can handle it. We have had a reputation for being a premiere mold remediation company for over 50 years.

Whether you know it or not, your home or business needs a helping hand once in a while. Let SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley or SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms be that hand.

If you’ve been following our blogs at all, you will know that SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms specializes in things ranging from fire restoration to water damage dry-outs and repair, all the way to commercial duct cleaning and pack outs. However, SERVPRO also handles smaller issues, as well. When I say “smaller”, I’m not referring to the degree of importance of the task at hand. I’m referring to the actual size of the culprit, which requires a microscope or equipment of a similar caliber to be seen. I’m talking about pathogens and, in this specific case, coronavirus or COVID-19.

I won’t go into the details as to what COVID is, as the entire world has been hearing about it almost constantly for the past seven months. In short, COVID has swept the world by storm and disrupted many aspects of day-to-day life. While very little is known in regards to its origins at the time of this publication, much is known about how to protect against it.

The CDC recommends a certain set of protocols when dealing with COVID-19. SERVPRO has been cleaning up and sanitizing emerging pathogen infection sites for the better part of 60 years and by incorporating the CDC’s guidelines for combatting COVID, we have successfully been able to clean numerous homes and businesses.

If you suspect someone at your home or business has come into contact with COVID or any other type of pathogen, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms. We are here to help.
