Preparing for Water Damage

9/26/2018 (Permalink)

Each passing year, water damage costs property owners millions and millions of dollars. Water damages may be the result of plumbing issues related to pipe breaks, leaky toilets, showers, or tubs. Unfortunately, there are also many factors leading to water damage that you have little control over. Flooding, natural disasters, and the water left behind a firefighting effort. Despite the fact that a water damage can cause substantial problems to your business or residential property, there are several precautionary and follow-up procedures that you can implement to decrease the severity of the damage.

Preparation TipsThere are several strategies you can implement to prevent your home from being heavily damaged in the face of the unwanted water. • When you go on vacation, be sure to shut your main water line off. Doing so will decrease the likelihood of flooding that results from a break in a frozen pipe or washing machine hose. • Allow your faucets to drip regularly when the weather is extremely cold. This will allow any water that freezes to have room for expansion without rupturing a pipe. • Clean your gutters and downspouts regularly to safeguard against roof damage that result from the overflowing of water that may enter your home through the fascia or soffits. • Have your hose connections and fittings inspected annually? Keep a good eye on your appliances. Safety Tips after a Water Damaging Event • Stay away from rooms in which the ceiling has started to sag as a result of water retention. • Do not use electrical appliances that could have been damaged by fire or water. • Refrain from using electrical appliances and equipment when you are standing on wet floors or carpet. • Do not enter a room with standing water if the electricity is turned on. Be careful. More firefighters die from electrocution than from fire or smoke. Recovery Tips Call for professional assistance immediately. Start with your insurance company. Obtaining prompt clean up services can help preclude extensive water damage. It can also prevent the emergence of unwanted mold and bacteria growth. SERVPRO's professionals are highly skilled in offering detail-oriented, expedient services that prevent your home from becoming susceptible to structural damage after initial exposure to excess water.   Although dealing with water damage can be a problematic task, knowing what to do and who to call can prevent the issue from inducing too much anxiety. When you're ready to hire excellent water remediation services at affordable prices, it's time to call the professionals of SERVPRO. We offer round the clock assistance and unprecedented customer service, so call now to obtain the results-driven, client-centered remediation assistance you deserve!

Mold and Wallpaper how can SERVPRO of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, & Gulfport help?

9/25/2018 (Permalink)

Are you flipping a house? Do you find a lot of older homes have wallpaper? The wallpaper trend was very popular when those older homes were being built. Fast forward 20 years and you start to take that wallpaper off the walls and you see “Mold”. This is due to the long term moisture that could be trapped behind the wall paper and the sheetrock. This is more common in humid areas of the home such as in a bathroom.  Below is a picture that shows where the moisture was trapped behind the wallpaper and caused “Mold”. This is due to it not being able to dry properly.

***Please note that we do not know it is mold by just looking at it; to properly and scientifically say it is mold an Air Quality test needs to be performed to verify.

What is Black Mold? SERVPRO of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, & Gulfport can help

Black Mold, What is It? | SERVPRO of Biloxi / Ocean Springs / Gulfport

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, 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 that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

In March of 2016, Gulfport’s Fire Station # 8 located on Old Hwy 49 reopened on March 8th.   Most of the work was done by the Fire Fighters themselves, from drywall to plumbing. In efforts to show the communities' appreciation with the re-opening, several community businesses helped to put together a dedication luncheon.  SERVPRO of Biloxi/Gulfport/Ocean Springs was on hand and supplied pizza for the many visitors.  SERVPROs nationwide work closely alongside their local Fire Departments in their communities whenever possible.  We here at SERVPRO of Biloxi/Gulfport/Ocean Springs feel that fire fighters, as well as, our police are the unrated heroes of the community. The services they provide throughout the year that help us stay safe cannot be measured. We here at SERVPRO of Biloxi/Gulfport/Ocean Springs just want to say “Thank You” for your time and commitment.
