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.

How To Prevent Mold in HVAC System

10/29/2019 (Permalink)

Mold can easily grow in an environment that is rich in moisture and with temperatures between 32 and 120 degrees. Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can provide hazardous conditions unless you take steps to prevent moisture and mold growth from accumulating in the system. Below are tips to prevent mold in HVAC systems:

  • Maintain the drain pans.If the drain pans are not cleaned regularly, standing water won’t be able to drain and will accumulate. The water and microbes in the drain pans will result in mold growth.
  • Replace air filters regularly. Wet, old and, dirty air filters are not efficient at trapping mold spores and other contaminants. These particles can contaminate your HVAC system if you don’t change the filters on a regular basis. Usually air filters need to be changed once a month.
  • Keep ducts dry. Some ducts in the HVAC system may hold larger amounts of moisture and mold. Have your HVAC system checked to find which ducts are the most affected. Clean and fix ducts and replace water-damaged components.
  • Check the air intakes. Air intakes that are near areas where organic materials accumulate. This will transport microbes and contaminants into your HVAC system. Make sure to keep these areas very clean!

Be sure to have the moisture and humidity levels in your home under control. The less moisture you have in the home, the less mold that you’ll have.

Mold Growth in the Winter

10/29/2019 (Permalink)

In the cold winter months, mold tends to grow in homes with poor ventilation, high humidity, and unresolved water leaks. The insulation in our homes that help keep cold air out, also trap and harbor a lot of moisture.  This creates an environment that causes excessive mold growth. This is why proper home ventilation is important to help keep mold from spreading and growing. Here are some helpful tips to prevent mold growth in your home during winter:

  • Keep indoor humidity below 60% if at all possible. High humidity makes it easy for mold to grow. Using a dehumidifier will help bring the moisture down if the moisture in the air is too high. If you use a humidifier, make sure it does not exceed the appropriate moisture level.
  • Make sure you home is properly ventilated. Open a window or use an exhaust fan when showering or cooking. Make sure that the vents are not blowing air in enclosed spaces, such as the attic or crawl space.
  • Clean carpet regularly. Make sure to clean carpet regularly so mold doesn’t have a chance of growing and spreading throughout your home.
  • Have your roof and gutters inspected and maintained regularly. Repair roof leaks immediately and keep the gutters free of debris to provide proper drainage.
  • If your basement has high levels of moisture make sure to check for leaks. Having your outside drainage system inspected regularly will help prevent leaks and mold growth. Since the basement is a prime area for built up moisture, having a dehumidifier in your basement would help maintain moisture build up and create a healthy environment in your basement.
  • Insulate pipes to prevent them from freezing or bursting. Pipes that freeze are more likely the pipes that are exposed to cold air, such as water supply pipes.

During winter, mold growth can happen and will happen if you do not take the steps to prevent mold growth in your home. For any mold remediation services please feel free to call your local SERVPRO at (662)-287-7881. We will make it look "Like it never even happened."

How to Prevent Mold From Forming In Your Laundry Room

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

The key concept to preventing mold in your laundry room is keeping it very dry and very clean. Since mold feeds on moisture and food sources, keep them at a minimum. Wash your laundry often, dry clothes straightaway, maintain your appliances, and use a dehumidifier. Here’s how to prevent mold in your laundry room in more detail:

Do laundry often:

  • The dirt or food that may be on your clothes can provide a source for mold to cling to and grow. Keeping piles of laundry sitting in the room can attract a lot of moisture and lead to mold growth. Don’t leave stacks of laundry piled up in the room for days, they need to be washed sooner than later!

Dry washed clothes immediately:

  • Leaving clothes damp is not the way to go! They become musty, soiled and it eventually will spread mold spores into your laundry room. Don’t leave clothes inside the washing machine wet.

Maintain and clean the washer:

  • Keep the washing machine dry as possible and leave its lid open when not in use, do not close lid! Leaving the lid open will help keep it dry and not trap moisture. Check for leaks or cracks coming from hoses attached to the machine. If your washer overflows and floods the area, SERVPRO can help suction out the water and clean up for you.

Maintain the dryer:

  • Remove lint often to allow moisture to escape from the vent. Removing the lint will also help prevent a fire from happening also.

Clean appliances regularly:

  • Your washer, dryer, and any other machines like your dishwasher, also need to be cleaned regularly. Don’t let moisture, debris, and grime build up on your appliances!

Use a dehumidifier in the laundry room:

  • This will help control the amount of moisture in the air. Keep the humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent.

Properly ventilate the laundry room:

  • When you are using the washer and dryer it would help opening up a window or running a fan to keep moisture from building up and allowing mold to form.

If your laundry room is in the basement:

  • Control the temperature and moisture in the basement. Basements are hot spots for mold growth as leaks can happen frequently in this area.

If you see mold in your laundry room, try to remove it immediately. Mold spreads very rapidly! Call SERVPRO of Corinth/Iuka today at (662) 287-7881 if you notice a mold problem. We are always here and happy to help!

How to Prevent Mold In Carpets

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

Mold is a homeowner’s worst nightmare! No matter how hard you try to avoid it mold sometimes appears. Carpets are a common target for mold growth as it easily attracts moisture and dirt. Here are steps for keeping your carpets mold-free:

Control the indoor humidity:

-  Mold loves moisture and humidity! Mold spores reproduce in humid areas or areas with and abundant amount of moisture. If you live in a humid area, installing a dehumidifier would be very beneficial for your home. Keeping your thermostat in your home below 80 degrees would also help.

Remove standing water as fast as possible:

-  Mold needs only a small amount of water and time (24-48 hours) to grow. If you have a water damage, always remove the water and dry the carpet even if the damage was minor, such as if a drink spills or anything. Make sure there’s not any moisture trapped underneath the carpet as well.

Keep carpets clean:

-  Dirt and dust are sources that mold attaches too so you need to get rid of these sources immediately. Make sure you have an operating vacuum cleaner and make sure to vacuum your carpets on a weekly basis.

Just know mold can grow anywhere inside your home! If you suspect that your home has mold call SERVPRO of Corinth/Iuka at (662) 287-7881 and we can get it cleaned up for you. We are always here to help and there is no job that we can’t handle!

How To Know if You Have Mold In Your Walls?

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

Mold often grows out of sight in walls of residential or commercial properties due to water problems like flooding or leaks or excess moisture in areas of the property. Before you even know it, it creates a toxic environment in your home, compromising the air and health of you and your family.

The good news is that sometimes even if the mold is hidden you can find clues around the area that mold are present. You can find out if mold is growing in your walls in different ways. Here is how to spot mold that grows inside your walls.

Moisture

If your home has suffered from severe water damage, and the water damage is not tended to immediately then mold will grow in your walls, if the water wasn’t removed within 24-48 hours.

Other water problems like leaking or bursting pipes may also trap a lot of moisture inside your walls. This will provide a place for mold to grow. Be aware of these signs:

  • water stains
  • dark rings
  • discoloration
  • peeling, bubbling or cracking of the paint or wallpaper

If your walls are bulging or warped, they more than likely have moisture in them. A big clue is if the walls have a wet or damp feel to them. Normally you can also smell the mold it has a strong musty smell.

To best determine if you have mold in your walls, consult SERVPRO of Corinth/Iuka. We have equipment and products to help solve all your mold issues.

Call us at (662) 287-7881 for all your mold needs.

Mold Prevention in the Garage

11/2/2018 (Permalink)

Mold thrives in humid environments that have little ventilation and sunlight. If these conditions are met, it doesn’t take long for mold to grow on organic material like cardboard or drywall. Garages are typically havens for mold, unless homeowners take proper steps to reduce moisture. Here’s how you can keep mold from infesting your garage.

  • Check your garage for leaks. Inspect the areas in your garage, such as the roof, floor, gutters, and pipes, to ensure that they are in good condition. Fix any cracks and damage you find immediately.
  • Seal and insulate your garage door. To weather-proof your garage, it’s important to properly seal and insulate your garage door. Replace torn, ragged or crumbling weather stripping immediately. In addition, check the bottom seal for elasticity, shrinkage, and wear. As for insulation, a pre-insulated garage door panel has a much higher R-value (the measure of how well an object resists conductive flow of heat).
  • Decrease humidity. Since garages can attract a lot of moisture due to being exposed more to the elements, it may have a high humidity (over 50%) that allows mold to grow. To control humidity levels, provide proper ventilation using vents and fans, and let sunlight in for a couple of hours daily. Also, use a dehumidifier to lower the moisture level.
  • Install waterproof walls. If you’re building a new garage or remodeling an old one, choose mold- resistant drywall, as well as waterproof paint on walls and concrete. Alternatively, use pre-coated aluminum or vinyl siding for better protection against water and mold.
  • Remove standing water. Pooling water in garages may come from various sources, such as outside precipitation, snow-covered tires, or even washing your car. Remove any standing water with a squeegee or mop and dry the area quickly to prevent mold growth.
  • Have proper drainage. A garage floor drainage system is essential to avoiding water damage and flooding in the garage. Make sure your garage has drainage in addition to a proper floor slope that diverts water away from your garage.
  • Extend gutter downspouts. Gutters and downspouts are your home and garage’s first line of defense against precipitation. To prevent moisture buildup around your garage, ensure your downspouts extend at least 10 feet away from the garage foundation. Also, keep the gutters clean and well-maintained throughout the year.
  • Use waterproof containers. Water, and thus mold, is attracted to cardboard, paper, drywall, and other porous materials. To help avoid mold in your garage, use sturdy, plastic totes instead of cardboard storage boxes. Plastic provides better protection to contents and is not a source of mold food.
  • Reduce plant growth around your garage. Shrubs or plants may look nice, but they collect moisture and may cause leaks in your garage. So keep them at a safe distance away from your garage walls and windows.

Mold will have a harder time growing when there’s less moisture in the garage. Follow these tips to keep mold at bay and enjoy a healthier home. For flood water damage repair and mold remediation services, contact your local SERVPRO office at (662)-287-7881

Removing Mold Stains from Clothes and Fabric

11/2/2018 (Permalink)

Damp clothes or fabrics can easily be infested with mold if they’re not dried in time. If you’re in this situation, there’s hope! You can still save your moldy garments if the mold has only left a few spots. Here are a few general tips to remove mold from clothes and fabric.

  • Read the labels. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions about the suggested water temperature for washing and how the clothing items should be dried.
  • Scrub off the mold stain. Apply a mold stain remover, such as household soap, white vinegar or bleach, and use a toothbrush to brush off the surface mold. Be gentle and try not to damage the fabric in the process.
  • Pre-soak the fabric. Since mold stains are hard to remove, you should also pre-soak your stained garment before washing it. Saturate it for one hour in a commercial pre-soak product or in a bucket of water with one cup of white vinegar.
  • Wash your clothes in hot water. Besides being effective at removing bacteria and allergens, hot water also kills mold spores better. Of course, don’t surpass the maximum recommended water temperature to wash your clothing. If you have materials that can’t be washed, take them to the dry cleaner.
  • Use a mold killing solution in the washer:
    • Vinegar – Add one or two cups of vinegar per cycle along with normal detergent to kill any moldy smells and brighten your white fabrics.
    • Borax – You can also use borax in a regular washing cycle, but only with organic fabrics like cotton and linen. Dissolve half a cup of borax in hot water and add it into the machine once it has filled with water.
    • Bleach – This substance can kill mold in fabrics but it can fade colors. So make sure to spot-test first and read the label. Some labels say “no chlorine bleach”. Once you know your clothes won’t be damaged, wash them with normal detergent and one cup of bleach.
  • After washing your clothes, hang-dry them in the sun. Sunlight has a natural bleaching effect and also helps to kill mold spores in the fabric. Avoid using the clothes dryer as heat from this machine can make spots visible and difficult to remove.
  • If mold stains persist even though you followed the above steps, repeat the whole process. Alternatively, dye your garment a darker color – this may cover the stain for good.

Mold can also grow on other textile items in your home, such as upholstery and carpet. However, dealing with mold on these items – IF they can be salvaged – is a more difficult and time-consuming job. Call SERVPRO at (662)-287-7811 to properly remove mold on upholstery, mattresses, rugs, and carpet.

Black Mold in your Corinth/Iuka Crawlspace

3/9/2018 (Permalink)

What causes black mold damage in crawlspaces?

What causes black mold levels to become elevated in any environment are the same things, whether it’s in your bathroom vanity or below your home. Listed below are a few things mold needs to grow and expand inside a home is:

(1)The right temperatures

(2) food

(3) moisture

Unfortunately for us, mold is most comfortable in the same temperature range that we find comfortable, but can also thrive in considerably colder temps. And as for food, mold spores love  wood. That means the main components of your crawlspace, the floor joists and beams supporting your home, are the perfect food for toxic mold. So where does that leave us? Trying to measure and manage the one factor we can control: moisture. Here’s the main ways moisture enters your crawlspace:

Water pooling in your crawlspace

Most of your crawlspace resides underground. That can be troublesome when you have a water drainage problem outside of your home. 

In homes with crawlspaces, there is another potential cause of excess moisture: plumbing pipes. Both the supply lines and drain pipes that service your home’s plumbing systems are housed in this space. So if either develops a small leak, it can lead to a lot of water being dumped into your crawlspace.

Evaporating ground moisture

Depending on where you live your soil is going to naturally hold some moisture. If that is the case, that moisture can evaporate into your crawlspace.

Air from outside coming in through your vents

Your crawlspace needs to breathe. That’s why you’ll notice vents located around your home that allow air to exit your crawlspace. It also allows air to come into your crawlspace. In many cases, the air inside your crawlspace is cooler than the air outside. Cool air can’t hold as much moisture as warmer air, so the moisture trapped in the air turns to liquid as it cools in your crawlspace. Overtime, the moisture can create serious water issues that can allow for black mold growth.

Understanding Mold

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.

Hiding Places for Mold in your Corinth/Iuka home

3/5/2018 (Permalink)

Mold isn’t picky when it comes to its living conditions.

It’s a pretty sturdy fungus and doesn’t require a lot to survive.

In fact, the main ingredient mold needs to live is one very common element—water.

Mold growth in homes can always be traced back to water. Whether it be from an actual water leak or just water from condensation and humidity, mold needs it to grow.

Below are some places you could very easily find mold.

The Attic

Unless you’ve had a recent leak in your roof after a heavy downpour or particularly rainy season, you probably don’t think of your attic as being a top place for water to puddle.

You know what all attics do have though?

Heat.

Being at a higher elevation and with little ventilation, humidity can build up in your attic walls and roof and evaporate, leaving behind microscopic droplets.

Throw in some dark areas and mold is ready to thrive.

The Basement

The basement is the number one spot for mold growth in homes.

Basements, the exact opposite of attics, sit at a much lower elevation and are prone to more of a damp feel. 

Usually by the time you see evidence of mold on your walls, it’s been there for a significant amount of time.

Moisture can often seep into tiny crevices in your basement walls and floors and settle there. Even if there isn’t glaring evidence of a water leak or moisture build-up, it’s not a bad idea to give the nooks and crannies of your basement a once over every few months.

Behind Your Ductwork

Ductwork is often a perfect place for moisture buildup and where there’s water, there’s the chance for mold.

Most people don’t think to check behind their furnace and in and around their ductwork for evidence of mold, but it’s one of those hidden places where mold may start to flourish and then get blown throughout the rest of your home.

It’s not directly in anyone’s line of sight on a regular basis, so it’s a good idea for you to check for mold growth.  Make it a habit to check for excess moisture each time you change your air filter. 

Mold Growth in Homes: What Do I Do?

Mold growth in homes is very common and before you panic it’s important to note that it’s a very solvable problem. If you need professional help with your mold removal, you’re in luck! If you’d like a mold inspection done or have any questions about mold growth in your home, contact SERVPRO of Corinth/Iuka at 662-287-7881. We're always here to help!

Does Your Corinth or Iuka Home Have A Mold Problem?

3/6/2017 (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.
