As not all mold or other microbes in damp indoor environments may be associated with health reactions, some may be according to the Institute of Medicine.  If you have contaminated water in your commercial property SERVPRO of Hayward offers contaminated water response, and your concern and our crews #1 concern is the health and safety of your workers and occupants.  

Microbes found in water damages can multiply and become airborne and spread to clean areas causing cross-contamination.  Some of these microbes include:

Fungi-organisms that digest building materials for food.

Bacteria-single celled organisms living in soil, water, and organic matter.

Viruses-the simplest microbes that can live inside a living body.

When any of these exist time is of the essence, as the excess water and humidity can result in microbes multiplying.  By starting out and properly drying these sometimes harmful microbes can be avoided and not spread.

Does your Hayward Home have a mold problem?

11/6/2018 (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 infestation.

Conditions in your Spooner home Might Be Right for Mold

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 Hayward to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.
