The following are a few of the most common misconceptions about mold:

1) Mold is safe to clean myself

No matter what type of mold you think you have, it is always important to take precautionary measures. Because mold releases spores, the cleaning process can increase the amount of spores in the air exponentially. It is best to hire professionals, like SERVPRO of South Huntington. We are licensed and trained in mold removal and remediation.

2) This mold isn’t black mold, so it isn’t harmful

The color of mold does not always indicate its toxicity. Mold can colonize in various colors such as brown, green, white and yellow as well as black. Any significant colony of mold can create increased levels of spores present in the air. 

3) I’ve cleaned with bleach, so the problem is fixed

Watered down bleach solution is not an effective solution. The use of professional cleaning solutions and professional cleaning methods used by SERVPRO of South Huntingtin will ensure the best results.

Mold and The Spring Season

Mold and the Spring Season

The Spring season is upon us and with the season's warmer weather we often open up our windows and take on the task of spring cleaning. One step people might not think of is to check for excess moisture that could lead to mold growth and to also take steps to prevent mold from becoming a problem. Remember, the key to mold control is moisture control. 

Mold can grow on any surface where excessive moisture and oxygen are present. If mold remains undiscovered or unaddressed, the damage can become extensive and very costly. It can also negatively impact the indoor air quality of your home or office. 

If you suspect that you have a mold issue in your home or office, SERVPRO of South Huntington is here to help and we are only a phone call away, 631-393-0404.

We are a leader in fire damage cleanup and restoration

Being a leader in fire cleanup and restoration is something that SERVPRO of South Huntington takes seriously. Our number one goal is returning damage to its pre loss condition, doing all we can to make it "Like it never even happened." 

Here are some fire and smoke damage tips:

DO:

  • Limit movement of people in the structure to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets
  • Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and belongings
  • Turn off HVAC system to help limit soot and smoke from spreading throughout the structure

DON'T:

  • Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces 
  • Clean any electrical appliances
  • Turn on ceiling fans
  • Wash clothes, rugs, blankets or any other belongings. Improper cleaning can set smoke odor

Are you ready? Does your office have a flood disaster plan?

It is estimated that up to 50 percent of businesses that close due to a disaster, such as a major flood, never reopen! Of the businesses that do survive, the majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Are you ready for whatever happens?

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it is a small water damage or a major flood. The best time to plan is well before an event occurs. 

SERVPRO of South Huntington can develop an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) for your business. This can serve as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be a supplement to an existing program that you have. By working with SERVPRO of South Huntington to create your personalized ERP, you're taking proactive measures and establishing a relationship with us.

When Spring arrives, will your home and office be dry?

Now that winter weather is passing, it is the best time to inspect your home or office building for weather related damage. Snow and ice buildup, heavy rains and strong winds can all cause problems with your property. Roofs, gutters and landscapes are exterior elements that should be checked to guard against water damage. Remember to look in attics, basements or crawl spaces for visible signs of water intrusion. Make sure outside vents are clear of any obstruction to ensure proper air flow. 

If you find a problem and need help, give us a call, 631-393-0404. SERVPRO of South Huntington is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and we will answer your call ready to help!

Precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage

Precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage

Even after watching the news and hearing the weather reports, bad weather can be unpredictable. So, try to take precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage. 

It's a good idea to inspect your property before a storm hits. A leaky roof or window can cause big problems during extreme conditions such as a snow storm or heavy rain.

Some questions you may want to ask yourself as you inspect your home or business: 

  • Do all of your exterior doors and windows fit correctly?
  • Is your weather stripping in good condition?
  • When was the last time you took a look at your roof?

Loose shutters and rain gutters can also present a problem in high winds, as can unstable large trees. It might be a good idea to trim back trees and bushes with heavy branches, so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Many homes have drainage ditches at the front of the property. Take time to inspect this area and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch can cause a lot of damage by flooding your property during, or even after, a storm.
