Understanding Mold

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may 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 lead you to possible mold problem areas
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth
  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent

Rain Gutter Damage in Mission Valley?

7/5/2021 (Permalink)

A rain gutter has disconnected from the side of a structure. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in San Diego.

When working correctly, rain gutters can help prevent water intrusion and damage to your Mission Valley home. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East offers these tips from expert Bob Villa on how to tell if your rain gutters are damaged:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use some binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job for evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.

Mission Valley Mission

When our office lunchroom flooded, it was a total disaster. Water covered the hardwood floors, and we knew we had to act fast. Our insurance adjuster told us to call SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East. They arrived quickly and immediately began the restoration process by extracting the standing water from the lunchroom floor. After that, they installed powerful air movers and air dryers and documented the drying process to ensure the room was returned to normal moisture levels.

Because of their fast response time, there was no structural damage, and the hardwood floors didn’t buckle or require replacing! Here are some tips from our website on what to do if you have a flooding emergency:

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting

Hidden Water Leak in Serra Mesa?

A water bill is shown We restore water damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Water Bill Too High in Serra Mesa Home?

Did you know that your water bill can be a good indicator of a hidden water leak? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website offers some great tips on detecting and fixing household water leaks, saving homeowners about ten percent of their water bills!  SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East offers these tips from the EPA on finding water leaks:

Take a look at your water usage during a colder month, such as January or February. If a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons per month, there are serious leaks.

Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak.

Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks.

Specialized Cleaning Services in Linda Vista?

5/29/2021 (Permalink)

An overview of a residential neighborhood is shown. We provide a full range of specialty cleaning services in San Diego.

Home for Sale in Linda Vista

My Linda Vista listing had fallen out of escrow, and it was going back on the market in the next couple of days. The homeowners had moved out, so I went by the home to do a walk-through to make sure the home was presentable. I’m glad I did because there were lots of marks on the walls from the furniture being moved, and now that all the furniture was out of the house, the house looked shabby. The windows were dirty, the doorframes and millwork had greasy handprints on them, and the kitchen vent hood and cabinets, the floors, and light fixtures all could benefit from a deep cleaning.

I’ve worked with SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East in the past for construction cleaning and called them. They sent a team out the same day, and they cleaned the house from top to bottom. All of the walls, ceilings, floors, bathrooms, light fixtures, cabinetry, and millwork sparkled when they completed the job. The carpets looked brand new, and the whole house smelled fresh and clean! Thank you, SERVPRO!

SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East has a team of highly trained and certified restoration technicians with advanced training and experience to quickly and efficiently clean any size property. Call us today at 619-303-3599. We’ll deep clean your home or commercial property in Linda Vista from top to bottom, “Like it never even happened.”
