BLACK MOLD-Call SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County

2/2/2018 (Permalink)

What is Black Mold?

Black Mold is a name commonly used for Stachybotrys chartarum.  It is one of the most infamous mold because it can grow in houses and affect animals and individuals differently.  

Stachybotrys is known as a toxic mold because it produces toxins called mycotoxins.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County and our highly trained technicians can help eliminate your mold issues.  

What Does Black Mold Look Like 

Black mold is a greenish-black gelatinous mold. It is usually slimy because of a wet layer on the top. However if a toxic black mold colony's water source runs out it can appear dry and powdery.

There are several molds that look similar to toxic black mold. If you find what you think might be Stachybotrys the only way you can tell for sure is to have a mold expert look at a sample under a microscope.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will perform an analysis and receive the results quickly within 24-36 hours and can begin remediation immediately!

Storm Flooding and Home Air Quality

1/30/2018 (Permalink)

Although water is essential to our lives, it can be devastating when it arrives in large quantities when a storm hits.  Many homeowners have experienced this as the victims of flooding.  When floodwater flows into the house, it normally brings bugs, debris, and micro-organisms with it.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can be your answer.

A lesser-known problem accompanying flooding, however, is the damage it does to the air quality in a home.  When items become wet for over 48 hours, they tend to become moldy.  Mold spores are not limited to the areas upon which they rest.  They float throughout the air and are easily inhaled.

Additionally, floodwater is usually rampant with micro-organisms which may present a health hazard.  These organisms are likely to penetrate into porous materials and may later be released into air or other water.  High humidity and ongoing moisture provide an ideal environment for these organisms to grow.  As time goes on, long-term humidity may also foster the growth of dust mites, which are a major cause of asthma and allergic reactions.

Drying out the flooded house is not a quick process.  This is where our trained technicians at SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County come into play.  It can take several weeks.  Materials such as carpet cannot be adequately dried out and cleaned for future use.  These will need to be discarded.  Doors and windows should be opened.  Cabinet and closet doors should also be opened.  Cabinet drawers should be opened as well.  Otherwise, they will likely swell and be difficult to open later.  Dehumidifiers are very helpful in lowering the level of moisture.  If the air conditioner was under water, it should be cleaned before being run.  Otherwise, it will likely blow contaminants into the house.

Appliances which are affected by floodwaters should be inspected by a professional before being used again.

Homeowners who live in a flood-prone area should also store hazardous household materials on higher shelves, in an effort to keep them dry in the event of a flood.  If these products mix with the floodwater, additional health hazards may result. 

If you are dealing with mold that resulted from a flood, we recommend that you call SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County immediately.  We have offices in Navarre, Pace/Milton, and Gulf Breeze, Florida.  We are here 24/7.

Mold Sniffing Dogs-Really???

1/24/2018 (Permalink)

Across the country mold remediation companies are starting to use mold sniffing dogs.  We at SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County thought this was a joke but after investigation this is in fact being done.  There are six most commonly types of mold. Mold is never the same.  However, indoor mold can vary within hundreds of different types of mold and even have multiple types of mold in the same area. Making mold an “inconsistent” substance with unique odors based on the age of the mold, the type of content the mold is eating, etc. Each type of mold has a different odor and biological characteristic that is too much for these innocent creatures to detect. What is more, new types of mold are introduced every year so it is a challenge to educate dogs about the upcoming types. Once a dog’s job of sniffing is done, experts still need to spend a handsome amount on verification and further testing. The mold sniffing dog does not remove the need for SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County to be of service.  We are here to help with a mold analysis and then recommend any remediation by our highly trained technicians that may be needed.  We are open 24/7 and are HERE TO HELP!
