Mold Facts

If you have a mold problem in Denver, SERVPRO® of Denver North has a team of restoration technicians on-call 24-hours a day to assist you. Because mold is always present in the atmosphere, it can never be completely eradicated, but it can be mitigated and remediated. The source of the moisture that is attracting the mold must be identified and repaired before the mold infestation can be remediated. Here are some facts about mold from our website:

  • 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 air conditioning and 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
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or 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 forty-five percent

5 Steps To Avoid Bathroom Mold

9/30/2020 (Permalink)

Dehumidifier with the words STAY DRY You can reduce the moisture inside your home by using a dehumidifier

Five Steps To Unwanted Humidity Problems In Your Home

When left in a moist environment, bathroom mildew can begin forming in as little as 24-48 hours. Luckily, you can avoid having this happen to your home in Denver, CO, by keeping your bathroom dry between uses. Most moisture problems come from the bathroom itself, but problems can also stem from your ventilation system. If you have a swamp cooler, be sure it is not adding to moisture problems throughout your home. There are five things you can do to help ensure your home is free from an unwanted humidity problem.

1. Run Bathroom Fans
Always run the bathroom fans while showering or bathing. Fans are designed to wick excess moisture from the air. For best results, let the fans continue to run for 30 minutes after you are done bathing.

2. Keep Areas Clean and Dry
When cleaning your bathroom, remember to clean the tiles and grout too. To keep water from accumulating, you may want to use a squeegee on the shower walls and doors after each use.

3. Clean Your Swamp Cooler
Clean your unit regularly to make sure water does not have a chance to sit for too long. Cleaning ducts and drip pans should be a part of your regularly scheduled chores.

4. Repair Your Swamp Cooler
If your swamp cooler is leaking, get it fixed immediately. The water inside cooling units can cause condensation to form, which can drip and lead to mold problems, which can eventually lead to more bathroom mildew.

5. Run a Dehumidifier
Swamp coolers use evaporated moisture to cool down your home. The evaporated moisture can become too much, making your whole house feel humid. When this moisture is combined with regular bathroom humidity, it can cause a mold problem. You can reduce the moisture inside your home by using a dehumidifier.
If your bathroom mildew keeps coming back despite your best cleaning efforts, call a professional mold remediation company for help. Experts can quickly identify the source of the problem and return your home to its pre-mildew condition.

3 Tips for Recovering From Mold Damage

9/10/2020 (Permalink)

Mold growth on a wall Mold can be harmful to you and your family

Owning a home brings about many challenges. Unfortunately, mold is sometimes one of them. If you believe your home in Denver, CO, has damage, you will need to have a mold assessment done. Finding out this type of fungus in your house can be scary, but here are a few tips to help you through the process.

1. Determine the Type of Mold

If you suspect there is mold in your home, it is best to have a professional do a mold assessment. They are better equipped to analyze the sample for you to determine if it is black mold, mildew or one of the other common types of household fungi:

• Alternaria
• Aspergillus
• Chaetomium
• Cladosporium
• Penicillium
• Trichoderma

2. Find the Source

Mold doesn’t just appear for no reason. Cleaning up the spores is of the utmost importance, but they could grow back if you don’t locate the source. Typically, this condition develops because of moisture, and often times the origin is an issue with the air conditioner. Do not attempt to find the problem on your own though. Always let a professional deal with the situation.

3. Make a Plan

Once the problem has been looked at and the source has been found, the remediation experts can tell you the cost and timeline for the clean-up. It is very likely that you will not be able to stay in your home during this time, so you may need to make alternate arrangements for your family.

You should also speak to your insurance company and determine what type of coverage you have for mold and come up with a payment plan. Make sure that the source of the problem is taken care of during this time so that you don’t end up encountering the same issue down the road.

Water damage in your home is overwhelming, but always hire remediation experts before you try to do a mold assessment yourself. They are trained to deal with these situations and will be able to help guide you through this process.

Why Is Mold Coming Back Even After Cleaning?

9/10/2020 (Permalink)

Mold growth on a wall Mold damage in Denver, CO

Why Does Mold Keep Coming Back?

Mold growth, when properly treated, should not reappear. Why, then, do some commercial owners in Denver, CO, continually see spots and smells reappear even though they've cleaned the area? It's often because only surface level cleaning occurred, leaving the root cause of the infestation unattended. To successfully eradicate the contamination, proprietors should consider the following three things.

1. Is There a Moisture Concern?
When high humidity exists, spores continue to breed, feeding off of the water and organic material. Have the indoor air quality checked by a water and mold restoration company. Ideally, the atmosphere should remain between 30 to 60%. If anything is amiss, the specialists can determine if something should be adjusted. In addition, continuously run the air conditioner and use dehumidifiers to establish a dry environment that starves out the microbes.

2. Has a Leak Gone Unfixed?
Your mold growth could pop back up because the original water source wasn't repaired. Pipes can have drip inside the walls, permitting dampness to accumulate. The fungus then has a hidden feed supply, multiplying where others cannot see. A leak detection service could identify the trouble. You'll want to shut off the water supply until it's corrected. As long as this exists, fungi can survive.

3. Did Spores Survive the Initial Cleanup Procedure?
If you scrubbed off the spots or used a commercial pray cleaner, you may have eradicated the external signs of growth; however, you did not really get rid of the issue. Water damage seeps into porous materials such as carpets and drywall. Traditional chemicals cannot necessarily eliminate all of the organisms. If fragments are left, they can thrive, popping up later on. Have professionals extricate any saturated zones and apply antimicrobial spray to sanitize the affected sections.
Don't underestimate mold growth. To effectively treat the situation, you'll need to locate the reason it started and then remove anything major impacted.

3 Things You Should Know About Black Mold

9/8/2020 (Permalink)

Mold on the walls and floor of a home We're mold remediation specialists

If you believe you have fungus growing in your home in Denver, CO, you should have a mold inspection done right away. Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys, is one of the more dangerous types you can encounter. You’ve probably heard the term but may not know that much about it. Here are some things you should know about Stachybotrys.

1. It Comes in Different Colors

You may be surprised to learn that black mold is not always black. It often appears as dark green or even gray. It is usually slimy due to the moisture that causes it to grow. If it is Stachybotrys, you’ll probably notice a distinct smell. A mold inspection done by a remediation expert may tell you exactly what type of fungi it is though.

2. It Requires Moisture

Mold requires moisture to grow. This is why you were probably told not to leave wet towels on the floor; it can actually lead to spores growing in your bathroom. HVAC systems are often the cause of the problem, so it is important to have them checked regularly. You don’t have to have a leak for there to be growth though. Mold can form if your house is too humid, so keep an eye on the moisture level in your home.

3. It’s Not That Common

Stachybotrys is actually not a common type of house mold. Because it is one of the more dangerous types and many people have heard of it, it is believed to be more prevalent than it is. You are far more likely to find Cladosporium or Penicillium in your home, but a professional can tell you what type you are looking at.

Mold is not something you should be constantly stressing about, but it is important to stay informed and know what to look out for. Always deal with moisture problems right away and call a professional to do a mold inspection if you believe there is an issue in your home.
