Is Water Damage Hiding From You?

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

Signs of Water Damage

No one ever truly understands the power of rain, of water, until water is truly gone. And once water has found its way inside your house, it can travel anywhere, creating hidden problems. Even after that big puddle of water recedes, there may be some fatal problems lurking behind the scenes. Here with some helpful tips on how to identify water damage, SERVPRO of East Brunswick/Princeton Meadows urges you to pay attention.

  • Smell the air! Hidden water stagnates and forms bacterial growth. This formation causes certain unpleasant odors in the air-- a musky, earthy smell--that is a sure indicator of hidden water.
  • Spot the stains! Any water that manifests in the ceiling or walls tend to discolor the area. Any abnormal color in a specified area ay be a clear indicator of potential water damage.
  • Peeling Paint. When drywall saturates water, the adhesion between paint and the wall may be lost. If you see the paint falling away, it might be water sneaking through the house.
  • Sagging spaces and finicky floors. If you notice walls and ceilings starting to sage or the floor starting to feel different, it may be necessary that you open up the areas to dry the spaces out.

Now, it is easy to see all of these signs as daunting--sending you straight into a panic. However you don’t have to be an expert to help yourself. When you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, remember SERVPRO of East Brunswick is here 24/7 to help you breathe a little easier.

How to Identify and Control Mold

7/26/2018 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows if you suspect you have a mold issue.

All you need to know about Mold

Mold is a common fungal growth found both indoors and outdoors, entering through open windows, vents, heating, and air conditioning systems. Between places of moisture and the dust bunnies growing on your wallpaper, mold can form almost everywhere. SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows is here to explain some common identifiers of mold and how to control them.

How to Identify Mold

Mold festers in a variety of places so there is no one specific place that you should be particularly wary of. One of the most common signs of mold is the identifiable black or dark spots on surfaces. With that black stain comes the distinguishable musty smell. The smell and spots combined are signs of a potential mold issue.

Mold, however, may not always be easily identifiable. While people react differently to environmental factors, those sensitive to mold specifically may experience nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing and sneezing.

How to Control Mold

The idea of mold may seem daunting. Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to prevent and control mold growth.

  • Be sure to eradicate any moisture in your house immediately after a storm or flood.
  • Check your humidity levels daily.
  • Vent damp areas of your home including the shower, laundry room, and kitchen area.
  • Fix any leaky pipes or windows as soon as possible.

If mold is growing in your home, you need to clean up the mold and fix the moisture problem. You do not need to know the type of mold growing in your home, and no matter what type of mold is present, you should remove it. SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows reminds you that they are always available to help 24/7. No problem is too big or too small to keep your family healthy
