Water damage restoration in Warminster, PA doesn't happen like this everyday, but it does happen. This is a sewer backup and that is never fun. This is considered hazardous and should only be handled by professionals to avoid serious health risks. If not cleaned up properly, what is called "black water" can cause illness in you and your family. Do not try to clean this up yourself!
Here's a before and after from mold removal in Trevose, PA. This was a pretty extreme case, but now we just have to put it back together, good as new!
In our previous post, we mentioned some of the symptoms of a person who is having a negative reaction to mold in their home. Below is a more comprehensive list for those who might be trying to decide whether to have a mold test performed in the Philadelphia, PA area.
-morning joint stiffness
-increased thirst/ urinary frequency
-abdominal pain/ bloating
-frequent headaches, and being light headed
Symptoms will become more intense as exposure increases. We can sample different rooms, and surfaces to make sure you and your family are safe.
Have you ever wondered what that strange smell was in your basement? You notice that the basement seems damp, but not all of the time? You notice some discoloration in certain areas? And when you realize that you have been ill more than once this year, you begin to wonder if there is a connection. If you notice a musty odor, and that you haven't been feeling your best, it might be time for a mold inspection. We recently did a mold inspection in Bristol, PA for a woman who was feeling fatigue, frequent headaches, and light headed. She decided it was worth taking the time to do the test just to make sure that wasn't harming her health by being neglectful of a situation that might exist in her home. Peace of mind is priceless.
Finally, Punxsatawney Phil has been dragged from his home and this year has seen his shadow! Winter will be over soon if you believe in such things. The spring can bring a number of scenarios, some great and some not so great. On our way to an emergency water job in Fort Washington, PA today, we were talking about preparation for spring. Getting our equipment ready and getting our carpet cleaning and extraction units serviced. Not something everyone does for spring prep., but at PDR we have that on our list so we are ready when you need us.
Proper use of equipment is imperative for a quick, efficient, effective dryout. One of our focuses here at Philadelphia Disaster Restoration is to maintain our certifications in proper techniques in restorative science.

This water damage restoration in Levittown, PA is one of our latest projects.
Sometimes we don't really know what is behind the walls until we get there.... This mold removal in Horsham, PA gave us a bit of a start when we opened up the wall. While we are always prepared, we are also sometime surprised.

You must contact your insurance company immediately, then contact us and we will take it from there. We are here 24/7, equipped to handle whatever emergency you might encounter.
Many types of mold can cause reactions. There was a small "hysteria" created around black mold several years ago. However, there are other types of mold that may cause adverse reactions. That is why we test! We are doing a mold inspection today in Philadelphia, PA. Indoor humidity should be below 45 percent, one of the things we will be checking today.
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.
