Mold Problems? Call SERVPRO Today!

10/28/2020 (Permalink)

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

Mold Tips

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.
What to Do:
Stay out of affected areas.
Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
Contact SERVPRO of Corinth/Iuka for mold remediation services.
What Not to Do:
Don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Fireplace Safety Tips

10/27/2020 (Permalink)

It’s almost that time of the year when it’s time to drink a cup of hot cocoa by the fireplace cuddled up in blankets, but fireplaces can be potentially very dangerous for you and your home. Following the tips below will help prevent any fire damage to your home.

Fireplace safety tips
• Before winter, get your chimney cleaned really well before use.
• Inspect your chimney cap regularly for damages and replace and fix anything that might be damaged.
• Keep flammable objects, such as newspapers, books, and furniture, at least two feet away from the fireplace.
• Make sure there is a fire extinguisher in your house and make sure its easily able to access.
• Have a metal screen or glass doors installed to prevent embers and ashes from shooting out of the fireplace.
• Supervise children whenever the fireplace is being used. Remind them to stay away from the fire. Keep pets at a safe distance from the fire, as well.
• Always supervise the fire and never leave it burning when you go to sleep or if you are leaving your home.
• Install and maintain smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.
When starting the fireplace:
• Remove the ashes from the previous fire but let them cool for several hours before disposing of them.
• Place crumpled paper on the grate and cover it with kindling or another Firestarter. Do not use flammable liquids to start a fireplace. Add the firewood once the kindling is burning brightly. Then, close the fire screen.
• Don’t overload the fireplace.
• Never burn plastic, garbage or other toxic materials.

Holiday Fire Safety

10/27/2020 (Permalink)

Christmas trees are a very popular part of celebrating the holiday season. While Christmas tree fires are uncommon, the ensuing damage can be severe. Moreover, half of the reported Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical malfunctions and heat sources. Follow these tips to prevent Christmas tree fires in your home:

If you’re using a real Christmas tree, cut 2 inches from the base of the trunk before placing in the stand. This allows the tree to better absorb water.
Water the tree daily to make sure it stays hydrated. If your tree is about 6 feet tall, add about 1 gallon of water to the tree stand every day.
Keep the tree at a safe distance away from any heat source, such as radiators, fireplaces, lights or candles.
Ensure the tree is not blocking exits or footpaths, so it won’t get knocked over.
To decorate the tree, use only lights that are rated for indoor use. Also check for the label of an independent testing laboratory, such as Underwriters’ Laboratory (UL).
Before using lights, ensure there are no frayed wires, broken bulbs and cords, cracked sockets or loose bulb connections.
Don’t overload electrical outlets or extension cords. Plug lights into different circuits around your home.
Turn off the Christmas lights when going to bed or leaving home.
Never use burning candles to decorate a tree. Use battery-operated, flameless LED candles instead.
After Christmas, or when the real tree dries out and starts dropping needles, discard it. Dry trees are a fire hazard, so don’t keep yours in the home or garage. Find a recycling program in your community.
For increased Christmas tree safety, consider purchasing a Christmas tree safety system. These devices warn you when there is low water in the tree stand or if a fire starts. Even if you use such a safety system, always make sure your smoke alarms are working and test them monthly.

Enjoy a safe holiday season by being vigilant of fire hazards in your home. For professional emergency smoke damage repair or fire damage repair, contact your local SERVPRO office at (662)-287-7881

• Keep candles away from flammable objects, like furniture, curtains, paper, plants, or electronics.
• Burn candles on heat-resistant surfaces.
• Keep lit candles apart from one another so they can’t potentially melt each other
• Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
• Always supervise candles do not leave them lit when you leave home.
• Don’t use candles in bedrooms or other sleeping areas.
