Oh no, mold!

Did you know that in the right conditions, mold can spread throughout your home in as little as forty-eight hours? SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne has been providing mold mitigation and remediation services in Ladds Addition area for years. Here is some information from our SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne about what causes mold to grow.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist naturally, almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, so removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Although mold can be mitigated and remediated, it can never be completely eradicated. This is why:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float in the atmosphere, and can enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems, or even come indoors on your clothing or pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. or 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

When my Portland home basement flooded, we were out of town, and the damage wasn’t discovered for a few days. Everything that touched the ground was damaged by water. All the furniture and cardboard boxes stored down in the basement were standing in water. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne.

The SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne technicians arrived quickly, assessed the situation, and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. They contacted my insurance adjuster and helped me with the insurance paperwork and process. Fortunately, they were able to clean and restore most of the items from my basement and return them to preloss condition. Here are the cleaning methods they used:

  • Dry Cleaning - used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning
  • Wet Cleaning - an effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues
  • Spray and Wipe - effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning
  • Foam Cleaning - used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned

Sinking Feeling in Portland?

I was down in my office for a couple of hours on a conference call before I heard a funny dripping and splashing sound coming down the stairs. When I investigated, I discovered that my daughter had left the sink running in my Portland home. There was a shallow lake in the bathroom, and water was running down the hallway. The stairway carpeting was saturated. My neighbor told me to call SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne and I’m glad I did.

I was amazed at how quickly the SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne technicians arrived. They quickly extracted the water and set up powerful air blowers and movers to dry the upstairs and downstairs areas that were flooded.

They documented the drying process and cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the affected areas.
