Mold Growth in the Winter

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

The lack of moisture in the cold air leads people to believe they don’t have to worry about mold growth during the winter. There are several factors that lead to increased concerns about mold during the winter months.

Water Damage

A leaking pipes or roof can create a constant source of moisture in your home. If you find a leak, get it repaired immediately. Mold may compound the problem if the moisture problem is not addressed immediately.

Turning Up the Heat

During the winter months our homes are sealed up tight to keep the warm air in. The warm air is unable to leave your home, the trapped moisture and condensation from the increased humidity creates a perfect atmosphere for mold growth. Differences in relative humidity throughout the house can also increase the chances of mold growth.

Using Humidifiers

Due to the dry air during the winter, there is a high use of humidifiers. Having moisture in the air can be helpful but if you aren’t careful, the over using of a humidifier can cause mold growth. To avoid any issues use them in moderation.

Lack of Ventilation

Indoor air is typically drier overall during the winter months but certain areas of the home may experience intensified levels of humidity due to a lack of ventilation. Kitchens and bathrooms are particularly susceptible to this issue. Something as little as steam from the shower, sink or stove can create a big problem. During cold weather, windows are closed tightly and condensation collects on indoor surfaces such as cold walls or windows and frames. This moisture creates an ideal conditions for mold growth in winter.

Identifying the Source of the Mold

Moisture conditions indoors can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. The best way to control mold growth is to control moisture. It’s crucial to identify the source of the moisture and remedy the problem at the source. For instance, if you discover mold under your sink due to a leaking pipe repair the pipe or shut the water off to the sink. You may not notice mold growth in certain area, this does not mean that mold isn’t present or that it won’t grow if you don’t take action.

Humidity & Condensation

Reduce Humidity

Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Relative humidity can be measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a small, inexpensive ($10-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.

Actions that will help to reduce humidity:

  • Vent appliances that produce moisture, such as clothes dryers, stoves, and kerosene heaters to the outside where possible. (Combustion appliances such as stoves and kerosene heaters produce water vapor and will increase the humidity unless vented to the outside.)
  • Run the bathroom fan or open the window when showering. Use exhaust fans or open windows whenever cooking, running the dishwasher or dishwashing, etc.
  • Use air de-humidifiers when needed.

Reduce Condensation

If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls or pipes act quickly to dry the wet surface and reduce the moisture/water source. Condensation can be a sign of high humidity.

Actions that will help prevent condensation:

  • Reduce the humidity.
  • Increase ventilation or air movement by opening doors and/or windows, when practical. Use fans as needed.
  • Increase air temperature.
  • Cover cold surfaces, such as cold water pipes, with insulation.

Protect Your Home From Water Damage

2/17/2020 (Permalink)

Kitchen with water flooding the floor SERVPRO of Upper Darby specializes in flooding and storm damage restoration

Flooding, plumbing leaks, andwater damage can happen at any time. Internal and external forces can harm valuable items, carpets, furnishings and structural components. Even in a well-maintained building, pipes can break, toilets can overflow, and water can seep behind walls and under floors. Waterlines for refrigerators often create concealed leaks that go unnoticed until mold and mildew have accumulated behind the appliance. The same is true for washing machine hoses that have cracked or become clogged. Water damage can also occur after a violent storm, a flood, or several days of steady rain. Basements and lower levels are especially prone to this type of damage.

Water Damage Statistics

Any type of leak can cause property damage and create safety and health concerns. It's easy to think that water damage or storm damage won't happen to you, but statistics say otherwise. Water damage is among the most common causes of property insurance claims. One in every 55 homes will have a water-related property damage claim this year.

Prevent Water Damage

By taking preventive measures, you can minimize the likelihood of water damage affecting your home. While you cannot stop a storm, you can follow these steps to help prevent water damage in your home.

Kitchens and Bathrooms
Kitchens and bathrooms are susceptible to water damage due to the amount of plumbing in these areas. Fix leaking or dripping pipes promptly, and be aware of elevated humidity levels that could indicate an underlying plumbing problem. Maintain caulk around showers and bathtubs. Water that passes through gaps can penetrate walls and subfloors. If this sealant has cracked or separated, have it repaired. You can probably complete that task yourself.

Appliances
Inspect waterlines for appliances at least once per year. If hoses are brittle, cracked or crimped, replace them before they fail. Turn off the water supply for all appliances before traveling out of town. Pay special attention to hoses for washing machines, refrigerators, and ice makers. Since washing machines have inlet hoses and drains, they are especially prone to leaks.

Protecting Pipes
Protect plumbing from freezing by insulating pipes that travel along exterior walls or through unheated crawlspaces. On cold nights, open cupboard doors, and let faucets drip. Before winter, drain all watering hoses, and turn off valves for exterior faucets. If a pipe does freeze, don't thaw it too quickly. That's how pipes burst. To protect your plumbing, never set the thermostat below 55 degrees.

What You Need to Know About 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

2/13/2020 (Permalink)

ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses 2019-nCoV: Image provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

What is 2019 Novel Coronavirus?

The 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new virus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person to person. This virus was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.

Can People in the U.S. get 2019-nCoV?

The 2019-nCoV is spreading from person to person in China and limited spread among close contacts has been detected in some countries outside China, including the United States. At this time, however, this virus is NOT currently spreading in communities in the United States. Right now, the greatest risk of infection is for people in China or people who have traveled to China. Risk of infection is dependent on exposure. Close contacts of people who are infected are at greater risk of exposure, for example health care workers and close contacts of people who are infected with 2019- nCoV. CDC continues to closely monitor the situation.

Have There Been Cases of 2019-nCoV in the U.S.?

Yes. The first infection with 2019-nCoV in the United States was reported on January 21, 2020. The current count of cases of infection with 2019-nCoV in the United States is available on CDC’s webpage.

What Are the Symptoms of 2019-nCoV?

Patients with 2019-nCoV have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of

  • cough
  • fever
  • shortness of breath

Are There Severe Complications From This Virus?

Many patients have pneumonia in both lungs.

Is There a Treatment?

There is no specific antiviral treatment for 2019-nCoV. People with 2019-nCov can seek medical care to help relieve symptoms.

How Does 2019-nCoV Spread?

This virus probably originally emerged from an animal source but now seems to be spreading from person to person. It’s important to note that person-to-person spread can happen on a continuum. Some viruses are highly contagious (like measles), while other viruses are less so. At this time, it’s unclear how easily or sustainably this virus is spreading between people.

How Can I Help Protect Myself?

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. There are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses. These include:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

How Can I Prevent Spreading Illness to Others?

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Is There a Vaccine?

There is currently no vaccine to protect against 2019-nCoV. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

What Should I Do If I Recently Traveled to China and Got Sick?

 If you were in China within the past 14 days and feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should seek medical care. Call the office of your health care provider before you go and tell them about your travel and your symptoms. They will give you instructions on how to get care without exposing other people to your illness. While sick, avoid contact with people, don’t go out and delay any travel to reduce the possibility of spreading illness to others.

Where Can I Find Official Health Updates On the 2019-nCoV?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a dedicated page on their website with up to date information on the 2019 novel coronavirus and a global map of current case reports.

How Can I Prevent Damage in My Retail Space?

Welcome We Are Open, Please Come In hanging on a retail store's door The professionals at SERVPRO of Upper Darby have specialized in commercial restoration for over 20 years

As a business owner, the well-being of your property is, and should be, a priority. When an issue arises, it’s up to you and your employees to respond quickly to minimize the damage and limit business interruptions. Here are a few things you, as a business owner, can do to help prevent damage.

Prevent Severe Water Damage

Water damage occurs due to excessive moisture and water. This may seem like common sense but we sometimes overlook minor issues that appear insignificant. To prevent water from infiltrating and harming your business, make sure to look for signs of excess water on the floor, behind walls, in the ceiling and any other surface. This can be evident by seeing dark or dried water spots, warped flooring, peeling or bubbling paint and wall paper, or noticing an order. It’s important to handle these warning signs before they become a major issue.

Prevent Severe Mold Damage

The best way to prevent mold damage from occurring is to take note of the conditions in which your business is operating. This is everything from effective mopping techniques, preventing excess water from lingering, to watching humidity levels throughout the day. If you see signs of mold growth, it’s important to address this as soon as possible to prevent further damage from occurring.

Prevent Severe Fire Damage

To prevent fire damage, it’s important to know your business’s fire risks. We strong recommend against allowing employees to light candles. Open flames, dry air and clutter can all eventually contribute to a fire. Be sure not to overload electrical outlets and keep them clear of clutter.

National Burn Awareness Week

2/3/2020 (Permalink)

Image of a contact burn on a female's hand 2020 National Burn Awareness Week

Each year, over 450,000 individuals are seen in emergency departments, clinics, or physician’s offices for the treatment of a burn injury in the United States and Canada. In 2014 alone, there were 3,275 recorded deaths from fire and smoke inhalation injuries. The majority of these injuries are preventable. The American Burn Association strives bring awareness to the causes of such devastating and costly injuries and encourages everyone to make simple environmental and behavioral changes that can save lives.

The following facts and tips are meant to be shared and we hope you will use them and pass them on to help spread the word on the dangers that exist and what can be done to decrease the risk.

Contact Burns

A contact burn is a burn caused by touching a hot object.

TIPS ON AVOIDING A CONTACT BURN

  • Supervise children around hot objects at all times.
  • Protect your feet from hot objects by wearing shoes when walking on hot pavement or sand. Keep pets off hot pavement too.
  • Stand at least 3 feet away from hot outdoor objects. Keep area clear of trip hazards. Limit alcohol consumption.
  • Turn heating pads and blankets off before sleep.
  • Have hot pads available whenever cooking. Long oven mitts are best when needing to reach in or over hot surfaces, such in an oven or over a grill. Assume all pots and pans are hot.
  • Remember to treat items coming from the microwave as you would items from the oven. Limit microwave use by children.
  • Unplug tools such as these when not in use, and always treat as if they are still hot. Keep out of reach of children

FACTS

  • Roughly 70,000 people went to the hospital emergency department because of contact burns in 2018 (National Electronic Injury Surveillance System- NEISS).
  • About one-third of the patients were children under the age of five (5).

Non-Fire Cooking Burns

Most burns associated with cooking in 2013-2017 were caused by contact with a hot object or liquid rather than by fire or flame.

TIPS

  • Have a “kid-free zone” of at least 3 feet (1 meter) around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried.
  • Never hold a child while you are cooking, drinking a hot liquid, or carrying hot foods or liquids.
  • Keep hot foods and liquids away from table and counter edges.
  • Ranges or ovens were the most common cooking equipment involved in non-fire cooking burns. Only 14% of thermal burns involving ranges or ovens were due to fire or flame.
  • Although tableware is not itself used for cooking, it often holds very hot food, soups or drinks, and may itself be very hot.
  • Keep hot foods and liquids away from table and counter edges.

FACTS

  • Children under five face a higher risk of non-fire cooking burns. These young children account for 6% of the population but much larger percentages of non-fire burn injuries from cooking equipment, tableware such as bowls and cups, and cookware such as pots and pans.
  • In contrast to the non-fire burn estimate, reported home structure fires caused by cooking killed 530 people and injured 5,270 people. This was a fraction of total burn injuries caused by cooking, hot food, or hot drinks. Children under five accounted for only 6% of home cooking fire deaths and 3% of home cooking fire injuries. Cooking was still the leading cause of home fire injuries in the under 5 age group.

Non-Fire Cooking Burns Seen at Emergency Rooms 2013-2017 Annual Averages

  1. Contact with hot range or oven - 15,700
  2. Cookware scald – 13,500
  3. Tableware scald – 9,900
  4. Contact with hot cookware – 9,400
  5. Contact with hot grill – 5,200
  6. Microwave oven scald – 5,200
  7. Range or oven scald – 3,900

Advanced Technology: Air Scrubbers

1/31/2020 (Permalink)

image of an air scrubber Our advanced equipment helps to detect and stop the source of water feeding the mold.

What Is an Air Scrubbers?

An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that removes particles, gasses, or chemicals from the air within a given area. These machines draw in air from the surrounding environment and pass it through a series of filters to remove contaminants. The size and complexity of an air scrubber system will depend on the size of the space being serviced, as well as the range, type, and size of contaminants that must be removed from the area.

Why Should I Use an Air Scrubber? 

Air scrubbers are especially important on restoration jobs where airborne contaminants are present or will be created/disturbed during the restoration process, such as mold, dust, asbestos, lead, chemical fumes, etc. These hazardous particles can settle on carpetupholstery, and furnishings, or be drawn into the HVAC system and contaminate other parts of a building.

If these contaminants are not removed, they will have a negative effect on the indoor air quality (IAQ) of the worksite. While naturally occurring particles—such as human skin cells, animal hair, and dirt—are nearly always present, toxic gases released by sewage-borne bacteria and mold spores can cause adverse human health effects when inhaled. In short, these contaminants can compromise the quality of the entire restoration job.

Air scrubbers help protect the health of workers and building occupants by providing a clean and healthy environment. They also help protect contractors from costly liability claims resulting from damage caused by hazardous airborne materials.

Why Choose SERVPRO of Upper Darby?

SERVPRO of Upper Darby’s advanced restoration technology and techniques allow our Professionals to restore a property back to preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively.
