Post Storm Microbial Growth

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it almost impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. 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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. Often times after a storm or water loss.
  • 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.

Reach out to SERVPRO of Chillicothe/Cameron/Richmond at 816-240-5105 today if you feel you may have a mold issue that needs immediate attention.

Regardless of the season Storms can hit

Winter storms sweep across the country, knocking out power for millions of people as it dumped snow and ice in places where such perilously frigid conditions tend to arrive just once in a generation. Officials in several states urged residents to stay home, avoiding highways and roads that have become treacherous. Cars and trucks were seen skidding into one another and off the pavement entirely, prompting local law enforcement to respond to hundreds of calls at a time. In total, roughly 150 million Americans were under some form of winter storm warning over the last few weeks. Snow coated the sand on the Gulf Coast beaches, and enough had fallen in Texas for people to go sledding. In fact, at one point, it was colder in some parts of West Texas than it was in Alaska! Sustaining storm damage to your home or commercial business can be a complicated endeavor. Not only is structural damage a possibility, but water and electrical damage are too.

About Coronavirus The CDC is responding to an outbreak of a respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and has spread to 60 locations internationally (as of this publication), including cases in the United States.

The virus known as “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”)iii is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person or through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
