Our 2nd call for this year came from a woman in Croydon, PA requesting a mold inspection and testing. She was concerned about a signs of mold in her home. We gave her some information on how to proceed, and she was grateful for the direction. It's not always about making a "sale", sometimes, a little education can go a long way in helping a homeowner make a decision. We are always here to help.
Sorry, we aren't trying to scare anyone. But, if you own a home in Philadelphia, PA, it probably has mold in it. It is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. So, why test at all? Good question. There are acceptable levels, and unacceptable levels. A mold testing done in Philadelphia, PA can provide you the information that you need to make an educated decision on whether you need to take action in your home, or if levels are acceptable to you and your family. If you do request a mold test from Philadelphia Disaster Restoration, Inc., you will receive a complete report on the levels of mold inside and outside your home. We will not just perform a test, but will also go over the results with you in terms that you can understand. That is one of the many differences between PDR and companies that just collect mold and submit it for testing. Our staff will interpret the results of your test, and provide you with real options for solving your problem, if you have one!
We have decided to mix things up a a bit at Philadelphia Disaster Restoration. Maybe throw in a little fun fact in our blog.
For today, our fun fact for today is that research has said it would take 57,000 years to read all of the information on the internet! That's crazy, but the stat came from the internet so it must be true.
Often called "black mold", stachybotrys chartarum can produce allergens and irritants. If you suspect that you have a mold issue, your best course of action is to make sure you do not disturb it, and get a mold test as soon as you can. We did a mold test in Newtown PA recently. We suspect that they have a mold problem there, and will test to see what types of issues they may be facing. They had a water intrusion several months ago, and the home was not treated for mold at that time. The first step, of testing, will give us more information on how to proceed.
Happy New Year from our first job of 2019, a mold testing in Plymouth Meeting PA. Hope you and your family have had a great holiday season!
Frozen pipes can be a real mess. It's getting colder and we haven't had a water damage restoration in Ambler, PA yet this year, but with January around the corner, we can expect to get calls from a frantic homeowner. Don't let it be from you. Make sure you insulate any areas where cold air might be coming through, and if you leave for any period of time, you should still keep your heat on to avoid the damage that a frozen pipe can cause.
When it comes to what to look for to detect mold on the surface, it is quite easy to spot out. However, there could be mold growing inside of walls or cracks that may be hard to detect, in that case you would need professionals to come by and take a sample and have it tested. We did some mold testing in Feasterville PA.
