Mold Problem in Sabin?

A wall is shown covered with a variety of microbial growths and mold. Moorhead residents call us when they need help mitigating mold damage!

Mold and Microbial Growths, Oh My!

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold is present in the atmosphere and floats around until the optimum environment is found to thrive. Mold loves any organic material and can grow on just about anything as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation, and it eats or digests what it is growing on and has even been known to cause structural damage to buildings if not mitigated in time.

SERVPRO® of Moorhead has years of experience mitigating mold and other microbial growths, and has a team of highly trained technicians who are on call 24 hours a day, every day. Here are some common moisture problems identified by the EPA that encourage mold growth:

  • Leaking roofs
  • Leaking or condensing water pipes
  • Leaking fire-protection sprinkler systems
  • Landscaping, gutters and downspouts that direct water into or under a building
  • High humidity (60% relative humidity)
  • Unvented combustion appliances such as clothes dryers vented into a garage. (Clothes dryers and other combustion appliances should be vented to the outside.)

Call Us!

Mold cannot ever be completely eradicated, but it can be controlled, and when you need help, SERVPRO® of Moorhead will mitigate your mold problem in Sabin, “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 218-236-7447.

Vandalism Happens

The Moorhead Police Department is responding to more vandalism calls than ever and may see an increase from the 278 cases reported in 2018. This July, the Tastee Freez ice cream shop in south Moorhead was temporarily closed after there was a break-in involving vandalism. A window was broken, and the electricity was turned off, destroying the ice cream and other food products. It is good to know that SERVPRO® of Moorhead has years of experience restoring property damage caused by vandalism and has a team of highly trained technicians who are on call 24 hours a day, every day.

When you contact us, we will ask you a series of questions to determine the type of equipment and the number of technicians to send to the site. Once there, we will assess the damage and immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process. We remove all damaged materials, board-up any compromised windows and doors, and secure the building. When the repairs are completed, your property will be restored to preloss condition.

Call Us!

We understand that every day your business is closed is a day of lost revenue, so we work quickly and efficiently to minimize this disruption and get you back to business as usual as soon as possible. Call us today at 218-236-7447. SERVPRO® of Moorhead will clean and restore your commercial property damage, “Like it never even happened.”

Control Moisture to Help Stop Mold Growth in Moorhead

Condensation and Mold in Moorhead.

There are many different kinds of mold. EVERY SINGLE ONE needs moisture to grow.

Mold doesn’t need a storm or flood. Even a tiny bit of dampness is enough for mold.

Have you seen condensed water on the inside of a window? Have you noticed water droplets near the shower?  That water is more than enough for mold to start growing.

SERVPRO of Moorhead wants you to know: if you control moisture, you control mold.

Control Moisture:

  • Clean spills or leaks quickly. Mold can start growing within 24 hours
  • Make sure roof gutters are in good shape
  • Don’t let water collect around the house foundation
  • Don’t let water collect in the air-conditioner drip pans
  • Keep drains clear
  • Indoor humidity should be under 40%
  • Wipe condensation from windows, pipes, or walls

SERVPRO of Moorhead offers these suggestions:

  • Use exhaust fans
  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers. Low humidity reduces condensation
  • Use the bathroom fan when you shower
  • Appliances should vent to the outside. Even stoves, washers and dryers produce water vapor

SERVPRO of Moorhead has ideas on reducing condensation:

  • Increase air movement
    • Open doors & windows
    • Use fans
  • Insulate cold surfaces like water pipes
  • Keep  the temperature comfortable
