Mold under a sink cabinet If you see visible mold, do not disturb it.

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.
What to Do:
• Stay out of affected areas.
• Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
• Contact SERVPRO of Buena Park for mold remediation services.
What Not to Do:
• Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
• Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
• Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
• Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Vandalism Clean Up

Vandalism at Local Church One of our SERVPRO of Buena Park techs cleaning extinguisher dust from an altar at a local church.

SERVPRO of Buena Park not only provides fire and water damage restoration. Our services extend to vandalism clean ups as well.

This unfortunate occurrence was due to vandalism. SERVPRO of Buena Park was contacted for the cleanup of extinguisher dust and other debris. Our technicians quickly started to HEPA vacuum all affected areas so that the dust would not penetrate further into furniture, walls, and floors.  Negative air machines were then placed to improve the air quality inside the facility. In the end, it was like the vandalism "Never Even Happened". The Pastor of this Church was relieved we were able to clean up the Church quickly so that he may open his church once again.

If your home or business has been vandalized and proper cleanup is needed, you can count on SERVPRO of Buena Park.

What To Do Until Help Arrives (Fire & Smoke Damage)

6/11/2021 (Permalink)

Fire Damage This home sustained fire and smoke damage due to a lit candle that fell onto the floor.

In the event of a fire or smoke loss in your home, here are some tips you can follow to minimize damage: 

  1. Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet. 
  2. Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls, and woodwork.
  3. Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas. 
  4. If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open to help prevent odor.  
  5. Wipe soot from chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim, and appliances, then protect these surfaces with a light coating of lubricant.  
  6. If heat is off during winter, pour RV antifreeze in sinks, toilet bowls, holding tanks, and tubs to avoid freezing pipes and fixtures.  
  7. Wash both sides of leaves on houseplants. 
  8. Change HVAC filter, but leave the system off until a trained professional can check the system.
  9. Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system. 

Final and easiest Tip:

Does Your Buena Park Home Have A Mold Problem?

Mold found inside a Kitchen Cabinet If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – (714) 523-9119

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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 AC/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.
  • If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
