How to Prevent Mold After Water Damage

Water damage can be a big issue, if not taken care of properly the left over moisture can turn into mold. Whether hidden in your walls or out in plain sight, mold only needs a little moisture and a dark space. A few things to keep in  mind when you find water some where it shouldn’t be in your home.

  • Clean water as quickly as possible
  • Use fans to dry the area
  • Dehumidify the room
  • Sanitize the area
  • Check all furniture in the area to make sure it is not damp as well.

When water creeps in make sure you know the proper way to handle it, this can keep you from spending more than needed. If you have a water issue and need help to ensure you don’t end up with mold growth call SERVPRO of East Hamilton/Fairfield 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at 513-858-1071. We are here to help.

Cleaning washer

9/11/2019 (Permalink)

Considering washing machines are used to keep things clean, you may wonder how you can even end up with mold in your washer – but it’s entirely possible. When it happens it’s one of the worst things ever, when that smell can soak into your clothing and never come out. But all is not lost; not only can you salvage your mold-contaminated washing machine, but you can even save your clothing.

Don’t Throw Out Your Washer Just Yet

Before you haul your washing machine to your Cincinnati,OH dumpster, try these steps to clean out the mold smell and remediate your mold issues:

  • Scrub the machine out thoroughly. Glove up and get in there with some elbow grease and a brillo pad. Scrub the mold away until you can’t see anything but clean metal, then run an empty wash cycle to rinse the particulates away.
  • Use everyday household products to both kill the mold and get rid of the smell. Run a cycle with a 1:4 mix of water and baking soda, then another cycle with vinegar put into the detergent tray. Both will help clean out any smells, and eradicate remaining mold. Just remember to run an empty wash cycle after to rinse it out and prevent your dirty clothes from smelling like vinegar.
  • Bleach everything. Bleach and other chemical cleaners can be that last “burn it all to the ground” resort, but they’ll work in a pinch. If you want to try something a bit gentler, though, give an oxy-based cleaner that uses oxidizing solutions a try.

Content restoration

9/9/2019 (Permalink)

When rains fall, winds roar and storms surge after making sure everyone is safe and looked after, we worry about our property. We worry about roof shingles blowing off or that old tree that seems to be swaying more than feels safe that is near your garage. It seems like in a storm when we think about property damage, we think about the structure, the roof torn off or a tree on the roof. But we leave out the secondary damages this causes to our contents, our furniture and everything that makes a house a home. Before tossing all your contents our or placing them out on the curb for pick up, make sure you check with  SERVPRO of East Hamilton Fairfield to see if the contents can be cleaned and restored. We have been helping customers like you when disaster strikes for 28+ years. We are ready  24/7, 365 to serve you.

Repair > Replace

9/6/2019 (Permalink)

We often find mitigation and repair used interchangeably, but they are two different words for two entirely different services that SERVPRO provides.

The dictionary definition of mitigation is: the action of reducing the severity, seriousness or painfulness of something. So essentially mitigation is the process of treating the site of loss to prevent any further damage or destruction on homes or businesses. SERVPRO’s mitigation process comes in many different forms depending on the kind of loss, but our main goal is ensure our customers are out of harms way as quickly and efficiently as possible. For instance during most water damage scenarios, we mitigate the effected space by opening up walls and removing flooring due to moisture barriers, apply anti-microbial and dry them.

The dictionary definition of repair is: fix or mend (a thing suffering from damage or a fault). So essentially repair is the process of stopping the cause of loss from imposing more damage or destruction on homes or businesses by replacing or returning the damaged source to optimal condition. We’re all in this together to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Bursting pipes

9/5/2019 (Permalink)

Bursting pipes leave a big mess. You can call a professional in Middletown Springboro, to fix a broken pipe, but what do you do about the water damage? Plumbers will perform the necessary repairs to fix your burst or leaking pipe, but it will be up to you to deal with the cleanup.

Water Damage

Water can cause serious damage, especially if it is left standing for a prolonged period of time. You should start the cleanup efforts as soon as possible. If the damage is limited to a small space, you might be able to handle things on your own. A water mitigation professional should be called in if the bursting pipes affected multiple rooms, traveled between floors of your home or went unnoticed for over eight hours.

Cleanup

If you are dealing with standing water or the leak happened near electrical appliances, turn off the power before you enter. You will need to have any carpet removed. Depending on the damage, it may be salvageable. Clear the room of all furniture and other removable items.

If you are dealing with standing water, it needs to be removed. You can hire a professional or use a shop vac, depending on how much water you are dealing with. It is important to thoroughly dry the area. Warm, dry weather might allow you to open doors and windows. Bring in big fans.

You may even need to remove sections of your wall to ensure the space behind is completely dry. Drywall and insulation can wick water. If the insulation isn’t dried properly mold can grow. Water mitigation specialists can come in and determine the full extent of the damage caused by the bursting pipes.

Dealing with water damage can be a frustrating and overwhelming task. It is vital that you remove all water-soaked materials and dry the space out completely. The faster you can accomplish this, the less likely you will have to deal with mold in the future.

Insurance policy

9/4/2019 (Permalink)

When one thinks of a water damage incident they may not think of it in a context of their own home, if they even think about it at all. SERVPRO of East Hamilton Fairfield sees water damages happen every day and at different times of the day. Reviewing or speaking with your insurance company or agent  can be helpful and save you a ton of money in the long run. An extension of that would be to read your policy in detail and ask your agent to go over or explain some of its content. Sewer back up if an often over looked item in policies. If you are a renter and not a homeowner you should still have a contents insurance policy to cover any damage items. Learn where the water shut off valve is in your home that can also limit damages. Knowing where that is can be helpful in the event of an emergency.
