Mold Remediation Commercial Mold Loss in Prichard, AL Mold in Prichard, AL

It’s that four letter word that no home or business owner wants to hear….NO, not THAT four letter word!  We are talking about Mold. And although it may not have been on the list of four letter words that your Mom told you not to say; its just as nasty.  Mold is a sneaky threat that can creep up on your home or business and ravage it before you even know its there. Here is a photo from a recent commercial loss that was handled by SERVPRO of North Mobile.  As you can see there was some water damage that occurred from a roof leaf. The moisture and warm temperatures in the ceiling cavity created the perfect environment for mold growth. Left untreated this could have affected the entire building and become a much bigger problem.  Thankfully these business owners called the experts at SERVPRO of North Mobile. We were able to effectively and safely treat the affected area and prevent future problems for our client.

Recently, one of our employees lost everything in a house fire.  We immediately came together to raise funds, collect donations and do everything we could to help this special person get back on their feet.   We hosted a BBQ event, selling plates and whole Boston Butts to raise money.  It was truly humbling to see the community come together for us and give back to help one of our own.  Thanks to the hard work of our employees and donations from local businesses and individuals, we were able to raise nearly $5,000 and a large assortment of household items and clothes.  We are so grateful for your support!d

Protecting Your Home from Mold

For most homeowners, mold isn’t something they think about until it is too late.  They don’t realize that it’s often what you DON’T SEE that leads to a costly and worrisome battle with mold.  Here at SERVPRO of North Mobile County, we take pride in restoring homes after a loss, but we also want to help you prevent disasters before they occur.  Mold is actually much more preventable than many other remediation disasters.  Here are some tips to help you prevent mold growth in your home:

  • Keep the humidity level in your home low, preferably no more than 30-50%.

  • Use and maintain bathroom ventilation systems.

  • Use both air conditioners and de-humidifiers.

  • Use exhaust fans in bathrooms

  • Use exhaust fans when using appliances (stoves, dishwashers, etc.)

  • Routinely check indoor sources of moisture (leaky pipes, appliance hoses, faucets, toilets).

  • If you notice water or condensation, quickly pinpoint the source and repair

  • Check all entrances for leaks, stains, and odors.

  • Clean bathrooms with mold killing products like bleach and keep them dry.

  • Watch your water bill; if it is unusually high you may have a leak

  • Turn off your main water valve when you trave

For the weekend warrior, the slayer of Pinterest projects and the ruler of home renovation projects, the idea of hiring someone to do work for them is almost inconceivable.  For them, their home is their most treasured possession and letting anyone else put their hands on their sacred space would be an unforgivable act.  However; even for the most dedicated do it yourselfers, there are some home projects that are better left to the experts.  One of those projects is mold.  We have been asked more than a few times if it is safe to clean up household mold on your own.  The answer is no.
