Mold remediation in Belleville, Nutley and Bloomfield

Mold Remediation Mold remediation in Belleville, Nutley and Bloomfield Mold growth on drywall in an office complex.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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 AC/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. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, 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 45 percent.
  • We recommend the assistance of a certified industrial hygienist to perform pre and post remediation testing.
  • An industrial hygienist can also assist in creating site specific remediation plans for difficult situations.

 

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Box Trucks for Boxed Food

Community Box Trucks for Boxed Food A box truck for boxed food

In an effort to assist the local communities of Nutley, Bloomfield and Belleville with feeding the hungry our crew chiefs made miniature box trucks mirrored after the trucks our teams drive to collect nonperishable foods.  The Here To Help tag line is not just another quote to our team at SERVPRO of Nutley Bloomfield.  The team takes helping the community seriously.  As the trucks slowly make their way through each community during the year we collect nonperishable food items to send to the local food banks.  Last year the effort was so successful that we needed to send a crew and a pickup truck to collect the food left at one of the local libraries.  Our resident philanthropist and sales representative, Al Williamson, has been spearheading this great initiative. If you own a business with walk-in traffic and would like to assist us in our endeavor to feed the hungry, please call us at 973-662-0062.

Tips To Winterize your Property

2/3/2016 (Permalink)

Cold weather can have a huge impact on business and homes that aren`t prepared. States as far south as Florida experienced heavy precipitation, freezing temperatures and damaging winds last winter, and these can all have a negaitive impact on your property. Consider the following tips while winterizing your property this year.

. Keep cabinet doors open during cold spells. This allows warm   air to circulate around pipes.

. Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets,                 especially if the pipes for faucets run through unheated or         uninsulated areas of your home and business. 

. Consider shutting off outdoor faucets. Find the shut - off valve   in the basement or crawl space and turn it to "off".

.  If you follow the previous step, then open the outdoor faucet    to help ensure it drains completely and the inner valve is          shut off.

October is Fire Prevention Month

10/19/2015 (Permalink)

This message is for all of our residents.  I just wanted to remind everyone that October is Fire Prevention Month and there are a few tips that can help you survive an emergency.

1- Draw a map of your home showing all windows and doors.  Try to have two ways to exit each room.  Make sure that all windows and doors will open easily to the outside.

2- Consider the use of collapsible escape ladders that have been evaluated by a recognized testing laboratory for sleeping areas on the second or third floor.  Store the ladder near the window where it will be used.

3- Choose an outside meeting area in a safe spot to verify that everyone has exited the home.

4- Teach children how to escape on their own in case you are unable to help them.

5- Have a plan for any elderly or disabled people in the home.

6- It is important to practice your escape plan to ensure the safety of your family.
