Uncovering Hidden Mold

August 31st, 2015 Posted by Mold Removal, News, Water Damage 0 thoughts on “Uncovering Hidden Mold”

When we think about the areas where hidden mold can develop, there are many locations that may not be easily recognizable. Of course, if you have a leak on the bathroom floor or around a sink, you will see the leak, dry it up and minimize the damage it will cause. There are other leaks, however, that will be less recognizable, and one area that frequently goes unnoticed is under the kitchen sink.

Let’s consider how often we look, I mean, really look under the kitchen sink. This cabinet especially, is used as a storage area for cleaning supplies, garbage cans, etc. Typically, we open the sink cabinet to grab a cleaning product, it’s usually only open for a few seconds. Therefore, a leak in this area may go undetected until it’s too late and the cabinetry damage is beyond repair. Also, if the cabinetry remains wet for a period of time, it’s very likely that mold has begun to grow causing a mold issue in your home.

Some of the causes of a leak under your sink are:

  1. Water supply valves and lines: these valves and lines are constantly under pressure, so if one connection is loose or a water line has a small hair line crack, water will leak under the sink even when the faucet is in the off position.
  2. Handheld sprayer: a leak can occur on the water line that is attached to the kitchen sink causing water to leak down the water line and drip onto the cabinet bottom. Over time, the water will sit under items stored so it may not be noticeable in time to prevent damage.
  3. Drain pipes: if you have drain pipes made of metals like brass or copper, they can corrode over time and develop a leak. These drain pipes can also become loose and cause a big problem.
  4. P-trap: when this gets clogged, it can cause water to build all the way up your drains and create a leak somewhere along the way.

What should you do when you notice a leak under your kitchen sink?

We recommend you occasionally inspect the sink cabinet for any signs of water damage, warping of cabinet bottom, or any stains from water or mold. This area can be problematic as a continued leak under the sink can spread to adjacent cabinets and destroy all your lower cabinetry. Once water is trapped behind a cabinet, there is no air movement for it to dry out and is a perfect environment for mold to grow.

If you do notice a leak under your kitchen sink, turn off the water supply and contact a plumber immediately to stop the leak before it causes any further damage to your home. If you do have a mold problem, you want to be careful to remove mold safely. Once mold is disturbed, it will become airborne causing a contained issue limited to the cabinets to become an air quality issue which can affect the air you breathe and cross contaminate other areas of the home.

If you think you have a mold problem, and have already stopped the leak, CALL US at South Florida Water and Mold Restoration, Inc. – 954-923-3340 – for a FREE evaluation to determine the extent of damage and to discuss the best professional approach to minimize the damage in the most efficient and safe manner.

MOLD REMEDIATION BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIALS

August 17th, 2015 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “MOLD REMEDIATION BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIALS”

As our kids enter their 2015-2016 school year, and are no longer sitting home playing video games or traveling on vacation, it’s time to take care of any projects around the home like water damage restoration and repairs, mold removal/remediation and/or remodeling projects.

We understand that starting back to school can be stressful, and want to make it easy for you to start your next home project since you now have the time to focus on new projects. Therefore, we are offering some valuable back to school specials so you can save a few bucks while improving your property.

SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER – MOLD CLEARANCE TESTING

FOR A LIMITED TIME – we will pay for a third party mold assessor to perform a 2- sample clearance test with the purchase of a mold remediation service (conditions apply) with our company. This is a $400 value.

Once you hire a licensed mold remediation company to resolve your mold issues, it’s critical that you hire a third party licensed mold assessor to perform mold clearance testing also known as Post Remediation Verification testing (PRV) once the work is complete. This test result is a crucial step in the mold remediation process as it will determine if the mold removal efforts were successful and if your property is returned to a normal air quality.

South Florida Water and Mold Remediation, Inc. utilizes licensed third-party mold assessor’s to perform thorough post-remediation evaluations of the areas treated. In addition, we guarantee a successful post remediation test by a third party mold assessor. If we fail the clearance test, we will send technicians back to the property to resolve any issues specified by the mold assessor. Further, we will be responsible for the payment of the cost to retest after a failed test result.

We will stand by our work and satisfy the requirements of the mold assessor so you can have some piece of mind that your project was completed properly.

Providing A Great Customer Experience

August 10th, 2015 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “Providing A Great Customer Experience”

Living in South Florida, we have grown accustomed to variations in customer service expectations. This area of Florida is like a melting pot of different people from all over the world who have various experiences in giving and receiving customer service so the standard of customer satisfaction will be completely different for everyone depending on their expectations.

When we receive calls from potential clients, they are typically very concerned about mold, and the proper procedure for removing it safely. There is no question that our client’s experience level with mold differs greatly from one another as the majority of our clients are experiencing mold issues for the first time. Some of the customer feedback we have received from customers is that they chose us because of the time we spent on educating the consumer on the services we provide as well as the process and most importantly, that we are a full service company; offering water damage restoration, mold remediation and reconstruction services. Many consumers find it much easier and less stressful to work with one company that can handle the entire job, as our motto says, “One Call Does It All”

Our business location also has a flooring and cabinetry showroom, so our customers are able to select various materials to rebuild their property by scheduling an appointment to work around a busy schedule.

Our goal as a company is to always provide exceptional customer service and a great customer experience. We do that by educating the consumer and working very closely with them to ensure we are meeting their expectations and to make the process much easier to deal with along the way.

MOLD PREVENTION TIPS

August 3rd, 2015 Posted by Mold Removal 0 thoughts on “MOLD PREVENTION TIPS”

Mold doesn’t ask for much when it comes to a place to call home. In fact, all mold needs is a warm, moist surface to settle in and begin growing and causing damage and health issues for homeowners. It’s important for homeowners to have a professional assessment of affected areas, remove the damaged materials, and eliminate moisture sources to reestablish a healthy home environment.

If not prevented or treated quickly, mold can grow and cause health issues for those living in a home. Headaches, breathing difficulties, persistent cough, cold symptoms, burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or lungs, asthma attacks, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, skin irritation, allergic reactions, and infections in immune-compromised individuals are all common symptoms families experience when mold is present in the home.

The best way to prevent mold in the home is to control moisture and clean up water damage quickly. Consider these basic suggestions for mold prevention in the home:

* Notice leaks right away and have them repaired promptly.

* Install mold-resistant products in your home, especially in the bathroom and basement.

* Turn on the exhaust fan when showering in the bathroom to remove moisture.

* Avoid installing carpet in the bathroom or basement where moisture is present.

* Hang used towels to dry before placing them in the laundry hamper.

* Make sure outdoor rain gutters are moving water away from the home.

* Cleanse indoor plants and change the soil often to prevent mold growth.

* Empty and clean refrigerator drip pans to remove standing water.

* Use dehumidifiers to help remove moisture in the air of your home.

* Open windows when possible to let fresh air in to reduce moisture.

* Have the home heating and cooling system checked regularly to make sure it’s operating properly.

* Increase circulation by placing furniture away from the wall and opening doors to closets and rooms.

If you suspect mold issues, don’t wait. For information on dealing quickly with mold in your home or preventing it in the first place, contact us at 954-923-3340 for a FREE assessment.
