Certain Things Shouldn’t Grow

Mold Remediation Certain Things Shouldn’t Grow Mold in a dining room floor.

There are certain things in life that grow that we enjoy watching. From our children, to our pets, to the flowers we work so hard to attend to in our garden, growth is a natural part of life. But not all growth is created equal. Certain things shouldn’t be allowed to grow, Mold is one of them.

Not all Molds are created equal

Mold and fungi naturally grow and are part of our environment. Over 100,000 different strands have been found to exist. Certain fungi and molds are useful and even help in the preparation of certain things. For example, Blue Cheese contains a certain mold which helps to give it that peculiar taste we all love and enjoy. If it weren’t for mold, we wouldn’t have the bacteria fighting Penicillin we all need and want when sick. And while certain molds and fungi may add value to our lives, other molds may be harmful and dangerous, especially if allowed to grow and spread in your home.

Mold growth inside your home can be the result of excessive water intrusion or damage not properly handled.

Most water intrusions are the result of storm damage, flooding, plumbing, standing leaks, and poor control of humidity inside the home. Areas that containing moisture and for a long period of time are more likely to have mold. Improper drying and handling of the situation can result in the growth and spread of mold. And while most mold may be visible, mold may also exist in areas not visible to the eye, making this all the more serious since its harder to detect.

The growth of mold in your home may have negative effects on your health.

Among those most affected are:

  • Pregnant woman.
  • Infants & children.
  • The elderly.
  • People with compromised respiratory systems.
  • People with weak immune systems.

Don’t allow Mold to Grow! If you suspect that your home or business may have mold, Contact us immediately at (951) 922-2900

In the Meantime:

What to Do:

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

Water Damage We Specialize in Flood Cleanup and Restoration This Riverside County home’was flooded due to heavy rains.

A property can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

There are a number of reasons why your Riverside County basements could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Beaumont/Banning Smoke and Soot Cleanup

1/14/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
