Mold in Your Home

3/26/2021 (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.

An update from SERVPRO of Burbank

3/27/2020 (Permalink)

Dear Valued Customer,

Due to the urgent nature of our business SERVPRO will continue to serve our customers at this time to the best of our ability.  While restoring your property is important to us our top priority is the health and safety of our customers and our staff. We are taking additional precautions on our end to limit exposure for both you and our technicians that require some changes in our usual business practices.

  • The CDC encourages people to maintain a distance of approximately 6 feet.  Technicians have been advised to avoid shaking hands (or making any physical contact) and we ask customers to stay clear of the work area as much as possible.
  • Lock boxes can be provided for customers who would prefer to avoid contact or who can not be home to provide us access.
  • Technicians will wear a clean pair of gloves at each job
  • Equipment will be disinfected before and after each job
  • Customers will be given the option of signing necessary paperwork via Doc-u-Sign, email or hard copy rather than utilizing a tablet or iPad
  • Job site visits will be limited to essential services.  While we typically monitor the drying equipment every day or two, we may allow longer periods between visits to avoid unnecessary contact.  It is imperative that you keep the equipment running at all times and notify us of any issues.
  • We are NOT currently asking our technicians to wear masks. The CDC recommends wearing a mask if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick and notes that masks are in short supply and should be saved for caregivers. 
  • While we typically like to update our customers in person on the job status we are encouraging telephone and email communication at this time to avoid unnecessary contact.  Please advise our office staff on your preferred method of communication.
  • We may experience issues with limited personnel and resources at this time so our focus will be on mitigation to stop potential further damages.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in these matters.  Feel free to contact us with questions or concerns. Thank You!

·         Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
