Mold Information

6/28/2017 (Permalink)

What are molds?

Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps hundred thousands or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.

Where are molds found?

Molds are found in almost every environment and can be detected, both indoors and outdoors. Mold growth is encouraged by warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as basements or showers.

What to do when you have mold? 

The first thing you should do is call SERVPRO of Eastern Lake County. We will come you your home or business and perform mold remediation work.  Call (219) 947-9931

Limiting Mold Growth

6/22/2017 (Permalink)

Did you know one of the most effective ways to limit mold is to mitigate water damage as quickly as possible? "Moisture control is the key to mold control. When water leaks or spills occur indoors-act promptly. A prompt response (within 24-48 hours) and thorough clean-up, drying, and/or removal of water-damaged materials will prevent or limit mold growth." Quoated from OSHA 

Water extraction to remove excessive amounts of water followed by fast, thorough drying of the structure and contents is important in preventing mold growth. In the event mold remediation is required, SERVPRO of Eastern Lake County will perform mold remediation work according to industry standards. 

We are available 24/7. Call us immediately if you have a water damage or if you think you have mold.
