Polar Vortex Hits Michigan

When the Polar Vortex of 2019 hit Michigan, it brought devastation to families and their properties state wide. When the local SERVPRO franchise in Michigan called on us for help, we were quick to respond. We sent our SERVPRO of Natchez crews and equipment north to assist in the clean up and restoration efforts.  

A great benefit of being part of the SERVPRO family of franchises is that when major storm events occur, we can call on each other to help in difficult times.

Mold Mitigation

When a house floods, water damage may only be the tip of the iceberg. If moisture gets trapped and goes undetected, it can lead to bigger problems down the road. That is why at SERVPRO of Natchez, we always check below the floor and in crawl spaces for moisture during the water mitigation process. If these areas go unchecked, mold can grow and spread throughout the home, leading to further damage and expense.

Preventing and Discovering Mold

Discovering mold in cabinets, below floor boards, in crawl spaces, or anywhere in the home is a homeowner’s nightmare. Understanding how mold grows and how to prevent it is pivotal information for any home or property owner. Below are some facts and tips that can help you keep mold from developing in your home.   

  • Mold spores are present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float through the air. They may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or pet.
  • Mold thrives on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can help lead you to possible problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If you do experience mold, SERVPRO is here to help. Our technicians are experts in mold remediation and will help get your property back so it’s “Like it never even happened.”

Mold Remediation

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems.

Got Mold?

Besides causing a major business interruption, mold presents a serious health risk to those exposed at your commercial property. Mold infestations can be caused by minor water intrusions, like a slow roof leak or a loose plumbing fitting. Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity. If you suspect your property has a mold problem, call SERVPRO of Natchez. We will respond quickly and work to mitigate the damage and restore the property, so it is “Like it never even happened.”

small smoke web hangs from ceiling

Smoke Webs

After a fire has occurred it is not uncommon to find “smoke webs” in corners or at junctions of ceilings and walls. While they hold a resemblance to spider webs they are actually soot and residue particles that form into chains and create webbed structures. This occurs when heat circulates into colder spaces, followed by ionized soot and smoke particles that form together to create these patterns.
