Ever go upstairs to your attic, or down to your basement, or basically anywhere in the house just to find some intricate “art” work that smells a bit… musty? If so, you may have asked yourself if that little patchwork is mold. 

The funny thing about mold is that it’s everywhere. Meaning the question isn’t whether or not you have mold in your home, but rather how much of it do you have that can potentially cause it to be a problem. 

Beyond the dirty look it gives off, mold can cause health and respiratory issues if not treated properly or left unattended. This is why each time SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough works on a mold job, our technicians set up air scrubbers to filter the air and catch any loose mold spores that can be harmful to the human body.

Did You Know This About Mold? - Marion 02738

Mold is a type of fungi that grows on to materials like wood, fabrics, cardboard, or paper and increases in areas that have a lot of moisture and less sunlight. Mold will feed off of the materials and eat away at them if left untreated. 

Mold can completely deteriorate things like furniture, carpets, shelving, and other mobile materials. It’s important to replace items that are affected and removal of affected textiles such as drywall and insulation. Since mold can grow and spread, always check to make sure you’ve completely removed the origin of the problem. Another area mold can be found is within your HVAC systems and can be spread quickly. Mold found in these areas can affect your air quality and create health effects. It’s important to remember to clean out air ducts and filters regularly. Mold can also seep into walls, ceilings, floorboards, or tiles and can completely destroy the foundations of a home.

If you think you may have mold give SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough a call to set up a visual inspection.

Keep an eye out on these important things before the next storm:

Windows

The wind is a huge threat to your windows, doors and garage doors. You can build and install temporary protection, like wind shutters or plywood on windows. Also covering your patio and entry doors, strengthen garage doors, and install heavy-duty door hardware.

Valuables

Protect your contents in waterproof containers and/or take the items with you if you evacuate. Inventory valuables and contents in the home with pictures or videos. Note the approximate value of each item and the date of purchase. Also, make sure important documents, such as an insurance policy or mortgage papers, are stored in a safe deposit or fire safe box. While keeping your paperwork safe is important but knowing what your policy entails is half the battle.

How to Be Storm Ready - Mattapoisett 02739

Here are a few suggestions on how to prep your home to effectively prevail against snowstorms, freezing rain, and chilly winds:

  • Provide quality insulation for your home – make sure that the roof and the walls are in good order. You may install storm windows and provide additional layers of insulation anywhere possible. 
  • Install smoke alarms and ensure proper ventilation– take precautions since fire hazards increase drastically when flames are burning in fireplaces and the power systems are overburdened by heaters.
  • Keep pipes from freezing – wrap pipes to provide some protection and let faucets drip a little as another preventative on really frigid days.
  • Ensure proper drainage– have downspouts and basins clear of debris and maintain the plumbing system in perfect condition so that the water from the melting ice and snow can easily find its way out and away from your property.
  • Trim bushes and trees – if you have a yard, make sure no branches spread dangerously near the house. 

Clear snow away–remove snow and ice from the roof to prevent collapsing and clear accrued snow away from the foundations of the house to lower the risk of flooding.

Its the Elements, My Dear - Marion 02738

'Tis the season for discovering just how strong the elements can be when the winds and rains beat against and around your house. After a sunny summer, it can be hard to come to terms with the harsh realities of our coastal winters. Wouldn’t it be ideal to pick out our weather for the day? What if we could also choose to have sunny weekends, rainy days only when we don’t need to go out, and snow just on Christmas Day. 

In reality, though, our weather forecast doesn’t check with our schedule and preferences when it decides to do what it does. This is especially true in cases of severe storms. Power outages, fallen electrical wires, and downed trees are common when the elements decide to come out in full force. Because storms are unpredictable, we don’t have ways to prevent the damage that follows. 

However, the crews at SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough are always “Ready for Whatever Happens.” Whether it’s the small fire started by an electrical malfunction or the water that started seeping through the cracks in the foundation, with the specialized training our technicians received, there is no damage that we are not well equipped to handle. Not only are we Ready for Whatever Happens” but we’re also here to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Eh, What Up Duct? - Marion 02718

Regardless of the field of work a building can generate multiple contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are lured into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. If the cleaning is overlooked for a period of time the toxins will intensify in the ductwork.

Continuously circulating dust, mold, and pollen can lead to reduced employee production, illness, and even turn customers and clients away from your business. As a matter of fact, indoor air can be up to 70 percent more polluted than outdoor air—which is why arranging routine commercial air duct cleaning for your commercial property is crucial!

Not only does a routine air duct cleaning ensure the air quality in your office, but it also helps to increase productivity and reduce the number of indoor air pollutants.
