Water Damage to Mold

8/20/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial buildings are not exempt to water damage. Water damage left uncared for can produce mold growth. Mold growing in a commercial structure may pose serious issues for the owners, tenants and even customers.

Most encounters with mold are after it has had the opportunity to grow and become visible. However, there are ways you can spot mold growth before it gets out of control. When you see moisture or a water loss happening, jump into action, stopping the source of a water loss can greatly reduce the chances of mold growing over time.

A different or unusual odor.

Mold can grow in your office ceiling for some time before you begin to see it. There are instances when the mold odor may become obvious before the staining may show though the paint or ceiling tiles. If you or your colleagues notice a persistently robust odor, musty, or damp smell in a particular section of your office, mold is likely underlying. SERVPRO® of Kirksville’s production manager and trained SERVPRO® heroes have a keen understanding and the most up to date training for all the stages of mold remediation.

Moisture Exposure

If your building was affected by the flooding, it more likely you commercial building will experience mold growth. In this instance, before you can notice the strange odor creeping though the office, mold may start to gain traction in the affected areas. If there was a leak in the roof or basement of your building. Mold may have certainly begin to develop. Having an IICRC trained and certified crew, SERVPRO® of Kirksville is ready and here to help your business begin the steps it takes to make it "Like it never even happened."  

Slight Discoloration

The office walls or ceiling could start to become discolored. Before they become completely gray or black, you may notice some slight darkening initially. Including the browning stain in the ceiling. This is a possible sign of mold growth that should be investigated further by your local SERVPRO® of Kirksville’s trained technicians.

Even if only one of these cases is present in your building, you should not attempt to determine the severity or clean up the mold yourself. It may not be contained to what your see with the naked eye. You should contact the specialist at SERVPRO® of Kirksville.

Our trained professionals can properly identify the entirety of the growth. Even if the mold cannot be seen or the mildew smell is not present at the moment, the specialist can use infrared thermal cameras to detect the presence and level of moisture in your office space. With this information, the specialist can make a proper recommendation for the safest cleanup.

Water entering your commercial structure can lead to mold growth quickly. Mold smell in your office space should not be taken lightly. Overlooking it or using traditional cleanup measures may lead to bigger problems down the road. It is best to contact your local SERVPRO® of Kirksville specialist early on who can complete, thorough assessment and recommend a safe solution. If you have inquires on how SERVPRO® of Kirksville can help your business, please feel free to call or text, 660-665-3390. We are always here to help.

Water Damage Falls into Three Catagories

9/10/2019 (Permalink)

When water damage occurs in your home or business, it can be grouped into one of three categories. Below are the common characteristics that professionals use to classify water damage into these three categories. 

Category 1:

Water that came from a clean, sanitary source. this type of water damage can stem from:

-water from an appliance supply line leak

- interior home pipe burst

Even if a loss was originally classified as a Category 1 loss, if the "dwell time" (how long the water sits,) exceeds 48 or more hours, the water would become a Category 2

Category 2:

Water that may contain contaminants that have the potential to cause sickness. This category might have potentially unsafe levels of microbial and bacterial growth. Some examples may include:

- A clean source that has sat for longer than 48 hours

- dishwasher or washing machine leak

- water that has traveled through ceilings or layers of insulation

Category 3:

Otherwise known as "black water." Can contain high level of pollutants and any number of bacteria and toxins. Examples of this Category include:

- Sewage

- Flood Water

- Roof Leaks

Moisture From Water Damage Can Cause Secondary Damage in Schools

9/5/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Kirksville services many counties in our territories, which includes many school districts. Schools are a major concern for spreading germs, but might also be breeding ground for other microbial growth. The following information from https://www.epa.gov/ will help shed light on the presence or possibility of mold in schools.

Common Moisture Sources Found in Schools 

Moisture problems in school buildings can be caused by a variety of conditions, including roof and plumbing leaks, condensation and excess humidity. Some moisture problems in schools have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the past twenty to thirty years. These changes have resulted in more tightly sealed buildings that may not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems in schools are also associated with delayed maintenance or insufficient maintenance, due to budget and other constraints. Temporary structures in schools, such as trailers and portable classrooms, have frequently been associated with moisture and mold problems.

Suggestions for Reducing Mold Growth in Schools

Reduce Indoor Humidity

  • Vent showers and other moisture-generating sources to the outside.
  • Control humidity levels and dampness by using air conditioners and de-humidifiers.
  • Provide adequate ventilation to maintain indoor humidity levels between 30-60%.
  • Use exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing and cleaning in food service areas.

Inspect the building for signs of mold, moisture, leaks or spills

  • Check for moldy odors.
  • Look for water stains or discoloration on the ceiling, walls, floors, and window sills.
  • Look around and under sinks for standing water, water stains, or mold.
  • Inspect bathrooms for standing water, water stains, or mold.
  • Do not let water stand in air conditioning or refrigerator drip pans.

Respond promptly when you see signs of moisture and/or mold, or when leaks or spills occur

  • Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours of occurrence to prevent mold growth.
  • Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.
  • Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry completely.
  • Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles, that are moldy, may need to be replaced.
  • Check the mechanical room and roof for unsanitary conditions, leaks, or spills.

Prevent moisture condensation

  • Add insulation to reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e. windows, piping, exterior walls, room, or floors).

Floor and carpet cleaning

  • Remove spots and stains immediately, using the flooring manufacturer’s recommended techniques.
  • Use care to prevent excess moisture or cleaning residue accumulation and ensure that cleaned areas are dried quickly.
  • Do not install carpeting in areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem (i.e., by drinking fountains, by classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).

Water Loss Could Lead To Mold

8/15/2019 (Permalink)

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home, call SERVPRO of Kirksville to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at 660-665-3390

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Kirksville for mold remediation services.
