Is mold everywhere?

Is mold everywhere?

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems.

Commercial - Mold

Commercial - Mold

This commercial business had microbial growth on the ceilings, walls, and in the HVAC unit. Containment was set and negative air put in. As well as the contents covered.

Most commercial clients want these conditions fixed as quickly as possible especially if there is any interference with daily business.

School Fire

School Fire

This local school had a fire due to so many plugs being used in one outlet. Luckily, SERVPRO is 24/7 so we were able to jump right in and get everything back in order for students and teachers. 

Commercial Pipe Leak

Commercial Pipe Leak

A leaking pipe caused flooding of about 7,000 square feet in the commercial business. They wanted us to get in quickly so they could get back to regularly scheduled business as soon as possible. 

There is never a loss too large!

There is never a loss too large!

Here, we have a commercial water damage due to the sprinkler system bursting which affected 5 floors totaling 10,000 square feet. There was also at least 2-3 inches of standing water.

Sewage Backup

Sewage Backup

Any contact should be avoided especially if there is feces or microbial growth. This is an emergency situation which should be dealt with as soon as possible. SERVPRO of Bessemer/SW Jefferson County has trained staff with expertise in this area, we can safely restore your home or business.

Louisiana Flooding 2016

Louisiana Flooding 2016

In August 2016, prolonged rainfall hit the southern part of the state of Louisiana causing disastrous flooding. SERVPRO of Bessemer/SW Jefferson County is headquarters for Storm Team Wilson. Which means when an immense disaster strikes in the South East part of the United States, our storm team becomes activated sending teams from franchises all over the country into the direct path that was hit; in this case, Louisiana. Pictured here, we have SERVPRO working in a local grocery store that was flooded and had to be completely gutted. Many homes and businesses were in ruin with a few feet of standing water, no power, and even damaged as high as the ceiling.

HVAC causing mold

HVAC causing mold

This was a commercial mold remediation caused by the HVAC unit. The vent cover was removed; wiped out and treated the return and cleaned both vents. HEPA vacuumed the walls and ceilings as well as book shelves, desk and light fixtures; and then wet washed the book shelves, walls and ceilings.

Mold

Mold

  • 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.

Commercial Mold

Commercial Mold

This apartment was affected by heavy moisture and mold because the tenant left for a long period of time and left the air conditioning unit off. This affected the ceiling, walls, closet, and the carpet, totaling about 540 square footage.
