Conditions In Delaware County Might Be Right For Mold

2/13/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Conditions In Delaware County Might Be Right For Mold SERVPRO of Delaware, Ohio knows what to do if mold grows in your home.

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 Delaware, Ohio 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 740-369-5020

What to Do:

  • 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

“We have worked with Rich and his team a few times over the years. The first time we worked with SERVPRO we were building a house and had an issue with the lumber and potential mold on it. Rich came out promptly to inspect and put me in touch with an environmentalist to test the lumber for mold. While Rich could have had his team take care of it, he put us first and had a third party get involved so that the lumber company wouldn’t balk at the findings and eventual cleaning that needed done. I was so impressed by the fact that they looked out for us as a customer and the end goal of our safety in having a mold free home, rather than their bottom dollar. Once the testing was done and we knew what needed cleaned, we were given an estimate for the work and it was done equally as promptly and true to the estimate. His crew was professional and did a high quality job. Due to the character, integrity and professionalism that was displayed to us during this time and the help as we went back and forth with the lumber company, they made lifetime customers out of us. They have since done more work for water in the basement and things of that nature and each interaction has been just as great as the first! If you’re in need of a reputable company that will treat you right, these are your people!” –Heather

We love when our customers review us and we sincerely appreciate all the kind words. At SERVPRO of Delaware, Ohio we are here for our community 24/7 for any Fire, Water, Sewer, and Mold cleaning need for both Residential and Commercial properties.
