Can you spot mold when you see it?

In the corner of a room, the bottom of the wall has mold on it Mold that's taking over a wall

Mold Growth Mold spores are everywhere. They get inside our home or business every time we open our windows or doors. They are on our shoes, clothes and other items we bring inside. Mold spores require the right environment to thrive and grow. A key element needed is moisture. It doesn't have to be the obvious wet carpet, wall, etc. High humidity in an area can accelerate mold growth. Four common areas where mold growth occurs: 

1. Areas where a previous water loss has occurred. Water damage that was not properly dried can lead to a mold outbreak. Water travels into unexpected places and without the right moisture detection and dry equipment moisture often remains. Without the proper tools and equipment you should contact a professional to make sure everything is dry.   

2. Basements and crawlspacesIt's common for basements and crawl spaces in the tri-state area to have high humidity levels. Water gets into these areas from hydrostatic pressure, poor drainage of rainwater and other issues. Once inside, that can lead to perfect conditions for mold to grow. A sump pump and/or dehumidifier can help eliminate water that may have gotten into the space. 

3. AtticsYour roof is the most important barrier to keep water out of your home. Loose shingles, aging roof, ineffective flashing or gutters that have pulled away from the roof edge can be a weak point for water to get into your attic.  

4. Kitchens and bathroomsLeaking faucets, toilets or appliances are common places to find moisture. Proper maintenance can reduce the likelihood of leaks. Running your exhaust fan can help relieve the high humidity that comes from hot water and steam.  You may smell mold before you can see it. When mold gathers on a surface, it gives off a musty odor. Spores from the air land and start to form fuzzy patches. An air quality test can be performed to confirm if mold is present. If mold is discovered it can easily be removed so your home or business returns to a safe level.  If you find mold and need to have it removed call the professionals at SERVPRO of East Evansville 812-471-3132

IS YOUR HOME IN EVANSVILLE FOR SALE?

A Green bucket full of cleaning supplies SERVPRO of East Evansville has all the cleaning supplies to get your home smelling new and fresh again.

CLEAN HOMES SELL FASTERIt's impossible to know what motivates a home buyer. If you're selling a home in Newburgh, Henderson, KY or anywhere in the Tri-State area a key thing to know is the first impression is often the most lasting impression. That impression starts before they even enter the home. Most realtors agree that a clean home sells faster. While sprucing up the yard pay extra attention to the entryway potential buyers will take to enter the house. Once inside the kitchen is an obvious place to start but reducing clutter in closets and throughout the house will go a long way in making a great first impression.

DON'T LET A BAD SMELL GET IN THE WAY OF THE SELLIf tidying up still leaves you with a lingering odor it may be time to call SERVPRO of East Evansville. The first and most important step in odor control is eliminating the source of the smell. Musty smells can be a sign of a mold or water problem. Along with the smell, tobacco smoke often sticks to walls and stains surfaces that painting alone will not fix. Pet odors bring unique challenges because they often have access to areas of the house that homeowners may be less likely to visit. Heavy lint buildup on registers can be a sign of dirty ducts that may also be holding onto unpleasant smells. All purpose cleaning products work well for general cleaning. Grease or protein based solutions don't work as well on smoke smells so using the appropriate cleaning product matters.HERE TO HELPIf you need help with duct cleaning, mold remediation, water damage or eliminating unpleasant smells you can call the pros atSERVPRO of East Evansville at 812-471-3132.

 Tips to protect and prevent frozen pipes:
  • Remove or drains lines not in use
  • Avoid anti freeze in lines and follow manufacturers instructions
  • Consider adding insulation in basements, attics, crawl spaces or garages
  • Keep garage door shut whenever possible
  • Open cabinets to allow heat to circulate around plumbing
  • Running water, even a small trickle helps reduce freezing
  • Avoid lowering the thermostat overnight
