Doing things the right way!

Doing things the right way!

Whenever our crews are working with mold, they are required to suit up and wear masks.  Proper protective equipment is so important in our industry.  Not only do they wear masks, but they also wear suits, so they dont take mold with them after the job is complete!

After this customer noticed a slow leak in their living room ceiling, they had a contractor open the ceiling to find an abundant amount of mold between her unit and the unit above.  Slow leaks like this provide a suitable home for mold to settle in.  

Mold can grow on Concrete!

Mold can grow on Concrete!

Mold, like any other living organism, needs food, water, and air to thrive.  It is not too common for concrete to develop mold, but it can happen in the right conditions!  Concrete is a porous material that can be susceptible to mold growth.  If you suspect mold to be growing on your concrete, give the professionals of SERVPRO of Northbrook/Wheeling/Glencoe a call day or night!

Improper Drying Can Cause Mold

Improper Drying Can Cause Mold

After you experience a water damage to your home or business, it is imperative that you react quickly and efficiently to dry the area.  If building materials or contents do not dry quickly, then mold can develop and cause an even bigger issue than the water damage itself!

Check your Attic!

Check your Attic!

Mold can thrive in attics!  Especially when the attic is not up to code.  If you notice that your vents are not venting outside, fix it as soon as possible!  The moist air from these vents will pump into the attic, causing favorable conditions for mold to develop.

Mold loves attics!

Mold loves to be in damp, dark places.  An attic can be a perfect place for mold to thrive.  You should periodically check your attic for any signs of mold, it is much less expensive if you catch it early!
