Does Your Mission Viejo Residence Have A Mold Problem?

11/16/2022 (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.

SPRING TIME MOLD SUCKS!

5/3/2022 (Permalink)

The most common types of molds that you find around your home include: 

  • Acremonium
  • Ulocladium
  • Alternaria
  • Stachybotrys
  • Trichoderma
  • Aspergillus
  • And more...

Several conditions need to be met for mold to survive:

  • Darkness
  • Moisture for mold to grow
  • Source of food, such as wood or other porous surfaces.
  • Oxygen
  • The right temperature

It's the last factor that allows mold to flourish in early Spring. Mold is kind of like Goldilocks. It can't be too cold or too hot for it to grow! Thankfully, SERVPRO of Mission Viejo are mold specialists. We can remove the mold-infested areas, disinfect with Benefact Decon 30 and restore the area to "Like it never even happened."

Water and Mold Damage to Commercial Property

10/20/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Mission Viejo received a call from the owner of a large commercial business in Mission Viejo.  The water damage occurred while the facility was closed over the weekend.  The owner discovered it upon returning to work.  The source of the loss was a water fountain in the hallway that had been stuck running for 3 days. The entire 6,000sq foot business was flooded! SERVPRO of Mission Viejo arrived within 2hrs of the call and started pulling out wet carpet, flooring, and drywall. Upon opening up the walls to begin the drying process, our team discovered mold (from previous undetected leaks). Our mold remediation team immediately went to work in full hazmat suits, setting up sealed containment areas where the mold was detected. SERVPRO of Mission Viejo removed all of the wet flooring, carpet, tile, drywall, wood doors, and mold. Our team placed drying equipment, air scrubbers, and dehumidifiers throughout the business. After a couple of weeks, the property was fully dry, mold-free, and ready for re-construction. The owner was very pleased with SERVPRO of Mission Viejo's quick response, which enabled him to reopen his business quickly. SERVPRO of Mission Viejo is always here to help!

Mold in kitchen Microbial growth was discovered on drywall behind cabinetry.

Extensive microbial growth was discovered in a family's residential home in Mission Viejo, due to a pipe leak between the walls that went undiscovered for many weeks. Mold was discovered in the garage and kitchen area after cabinetry was removed.
