Spring Waters Around the Corner

Commercial Spring Waters Around the Corner Commercial Flood in West Vancouver, BC

The Lower Mainland had a great skiing season this year with the abundance of snow we had on the slopes. This produces a large amount of snow pack on the mountains.  This will in all likely hood produce a heavy runoff in the upcoming spring months.

This heavy water saturation means there is a large potential for sub water to penetrate through homes and commercial buildings by the way of foundation walls, basements and crawlspaces. 

This can happen in any age of building so whether you have a newer or older structure it is important to periodically check all underground levels for any water intrusion.

You may not be able to stop it entirely but catching it early and a call to SERVPRO can reduce further damage to structure and personal property.  SERVPRO will assist by using subpumps to remove the water, sandbags to help reduce further seepage, and dehumidifiers to control humidity until the sub water subsides.  So don't fret is you see water in your basement from an unknown source, simply call SERVPRO and let us help you determine the source of the water and give you best the idea for cleaning it up.

Mold Remediation Get Home Inspection For Mold BEFORE Purchase Mold Problem Under Carpet

This local homeowner contacted SERVPRO a little too late.

He had purchased his home with a clean disclosure statement from the seller.  However, within a short amount of time it became evident that mold was growing rampant in the kitchen and living room area.

A small leak in the walls had gone undiscovered and was creating the perfect growing conditions for mold to thrive in the warm, poorly ventilated environment.

The homeowner noticed a small wet spot in the corner carpet and pulled it up to see mold growing there.  After pulling up more of the carpet he could tell the problem was much bigger than he had hoped for this situation.

SERVPRO workers discovered mold not only under the carpet in to the sub floor but it also ran up the walls in the kitchen and living areas.  

Had the homeowner contacted SERVPRO before he purchased the home. A mold air quality testing could have been preformed and then the he could have negotiated the mold remediation in the price of the home.

Mold Remediation Mold? Good or Bad? Growing Mold

When people hear they have mold in their home or work space, it usually is followed by fear. Not all mold is harmful and believe it or not we live with mold every day. Some are even beneficial. 
Here are some things you might not already know about mold:
Mold can be found almost everywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, clothing, foods, and even in places you can't see, such as the backside of drywall, areas inside walls around leaking or condensing pipes, and above ceiling tiles.
You cannot completely eliminate mold spores in your home, but you can help prevent mold growth by controlling moisture or controlling humidity, keeping areas free of excess moisture, etc. 
The mold that we typically see is not the kind you want hanging out at your home or business. If you suspect mold you can always call us
