Up to the Challenge

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

When we get called out to a water damage job we never know exactly what we will encounter. There are a few things we run into that complicate the process. That can be something like limited power available for our use with our drying equipment. When that happens sometimes we can use our power box that plugs into the customers 220v dryer outlet and gives us additional power to use. If that's not available we can use a generator. If the job is to far out that can be logistically not productive to make trips to keep the generator fueled up and monitored. So sometimes it extends the dry time because we are using less equipment. It could also be multilayered floors. We have been to jobs were there were 5 layers of different materials on the floor. When that is the case it usually requires additional demolition. When all those layers get wet it usually has to be opened up to get it to dry. Which of course adds to the total cost of the job with the reconstruction that will be needed.

Whatever unique circumstance we find our team will do whatever it takes to get it dry and put back together as soon as possible

Did you know mold can begin to grow and start to spread throughout your home in as little as 48-72 hours? It’s true. Mold can be a serious problem at your home or business, so it’s vital that you understand mold and the affects it has on your home, business and the people that live and work there.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business.  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.

Because mold can produce allergens and irritants, you will want a professional who has training and experience to properly resolve the mold infestation.

Duct Cleaning

11/11/2019 (Permalink)

Reports on outdoor air pollution are alarming. But did you know that the quality of air inside your home or business is also a cause for concern? Research shows that the concentration of some pollutants is two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. Given that many Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, you should start to freshen your air, such as through regular air duct cleaning. Below is more information about indoor air pollution and what to do about it.

What Are the Sources of Indoor Air Pollution?

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is often caused by sources that release harmful particles or gases into a room. These sources include your central HVAC system, cleaning products, tobacco products, new carpet, asbestos, and combustion appliances. Areas with inadequate ventilation also tend to have worse IAQ since there's limited outdoor and indoor air exchange. Additionally, outdoor air pollutants like pesticides and radon can infiltrate structures through holes and ventilation systems.

Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

Suspended toxins in the air can induce headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, and nausea. More severe toxins can cause cancer, heart diseases, and other respiratory illnesses. In some individuals, even short-term exposure to indoor pollutants can trigger health problems, while for others, illnesses manifest after a few months or years. As such, maintaining healthy IAQ is a must to protect health and productivity.

How Can You Improve Indoor Air Quality?

Since ventilation systems play a significant role in IAQ, you should perform routine air duct cleaning. This maintenance procedure goes a long way in reducing the effects of pollutants. If you've been using your HVAC system for a while without a thorough air duct cleaning, know that you may have been circulating pollen, dust, dirt, and other contaminants that can trigger respiratory illnesses. Have an expert test the level of pollutants in your building and devise a corrective action plan immediately.
