Water In Basement

Heavy rains caused some water to back up into this homeowners basement. Even though the water was minimal it still went unnoticed for a fairly long time causing mold to grow substantially. 

Slow Leak In Sink Causes Mold

Most homes that are occupied by the elderly tend to not be utilized in the basement as much as they could be due to immobility of the occupant. Unfortunately this leads to stories as such where slow leaks in water pipes cause drastic mold that goes unseen until a smell causes concern. 

Mold Loves Porous Materials

Porous materials such as drywall have the ability to suck up moisture to a large degree. This can happen even when the moisture source is not visibly large. A perfect example is a wet basement floor and drywall come together. The dry wall has the ability to suck up the water into itself creating perfect conditions for mold to grow. 

Mold in Basement

It is extremely important to check the basements of the elderly or someone who has difficulties navigating stairs. Even the smallest bit of water on a basement floor, even sweating concrete can cause mold. 

Effects of Mold in Vacant Homes

Mold in a vacant home can cause a lot of trouble. With no heating or air conditioning being ran in a vacant home the conditions inside become perfect for mold to grow. There is nothing running to maintain a balance which in turn allows mold to grow more easily. We work with a lot of realtors who are trying to sell vacant homes. However most interested buyers obviously will not want to purchase the house unless SERVPRO comes and evaluates the situation. After we give a detailed estimate and educate the interested buyer or realtor on the scope of work needed for the home to become livable the buyer and realtor discuss options. For some buyers a previously misused vacant home is the perfect options for purchasing and flipping for a reasonable cost. 

Help Is Here!

Intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result from storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures, long standing leaks and poor humidity control. When water intrusions are not addressed right away, the resulting damage can present increased risk of harmful mold growth. Some amount of mold sports are normally present in most environments. If the humidity and moisture levels in a water damaged environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold sports may grow and multiply. organic materials found inside a building, such as wood, paper, drywall and insulation, provide food sources for mold to flourish. Excessive mold growth can lead to indoor environmental conditions that pose a health threat.
