Where does Mold Grow?

4 Common Places for Mold to Grow


Mold growth and even mildew growth can be damaging to your home. Once mold starts to grow it can cause odor, and structural deterioration. Here are some places you might want to keep a watch on.

- Paper—Surfaces like wallpaper, stacks of old books or magazines, even cardboard boxes stored up against an outer wall. Making sure that the rooms these items are stored in are temperature regulated and well ventilated.  
- Drywall—Any drywall in the home is susceptible, especially in damp areas like the bathroom or under sinks. Making sure that there are no leaking pipes and if any water is split that it is cleaned up and not let setting for long periods of time.
- Wood—Wood in bathrooms including inside cabinets, the subfloor and even the studs behind the shower surround or under the tub are all subject to mold damage if dampness is present. Making sure that bathtub over flows are properly cleaned up, when taking a shower make sure a vent fan is running or crack a window to allow steam to escape.
- Organic materials—This includes such things as cork flooring or wall covering, cotton fabrics, leather and even soil such as the floor in a crawlspace. Make sure vapor barriers are properly installed in your crawl space to insure water does not get settle into joist causing mold to grow under your home.

As always the best defense against the effects of mold damage is to keep your home dry and clean. In the event of a leaking pipe fitting or even a pipe burst, water extraction and thorough drying should be top priorities.

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the "typical" fire damage emergency here at SERVPRO of West Evansville.

Step 1: Emergency Contact- The restoration process begins when you call us directly. Our representative will ask a series of questions regarding the fire damage event and dispatch you to the correct contact.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment- Our team will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Is your Commercial/Office Building Prepared for a Storm?

11/22/2020 (Permalink)

With technology today, we can usually predict when a large storm is going to hit. Here are some helpful tips to prepare you and your loved ones for a storm and prepare your office building too!

  1. Tune into your local weather radio station, TV channel, or app.
  1. Depending on the type of storm, you must evaluate your situation.
  • Your location matters. You need to find a safe place that offers shelter.

  1. Create an emergency plan.
  • Know where you are going (locate fast exit points or where to stay)

  • Memorize emergency phone numbers

  1. Prepare an emergency kit. Each kit should include:
  • Flashlights

  • Batteries

  • Non perishable foods

  • Water bottles

  • Blankets

  • First Aid Kit (essential medications)

  1. Prepare your home.
  • Make sure your insurance is adequate

  • Learn how to safely turn off your power, gas, and water

  • Remove tree branches or other dangers close to your home

  • Check your roof and gutters clear

After hurricane Harvey and Irma we saw that preparation is key. Water and fuel became items that were not available like they normally would have been. Plan for disasters with your family, and if you ever need help, give SERVPRO of West Evansville a call.
