We live in Minnesota too; we get it. There is snow, and there is rain and sleet and hail. There are lakes, ponds, puddles, rivers, and streams, … we get it. We know how to clean up and remediate water damage after so-called “weather events” bring all those forms of outside water inside.


When did storms, heat spells, cold spells, and whatnot become “weather events”? More important, why? What’s wrong with “storms, heat spells, cold spells, and whatnot”? What’s wrong with “unexpected weather” or “bad weather”, or – for that matter – “weather”?

---Back to Work—

We live in the world. We know stuff (keeping the prose clean) happens. Appliances break down, leaking water all over the floor. A mysterious musty smell reveals itself as mold growing around a dripping pipe in the basement. We get it.


Emergency services are always available, with “always” meaning “always”, including weekends, all holidays, early mornings, late nights, and the hours no one agrees how to classify.

Mold as a Super Villain

We’re having trouble thinking up a consistent costume, but we see a future in comics and movies.


  • Mold can hide out in spores, inactive, for centuries – perhaps thousands of years
  • In spore form, molds can survive anywhere – icebergs and deserts
  • Mold spores can survive in space
  • Mold may be merely unsightly, or may be pathogenic, allergenic, or toxigenic
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports there is no way to get rid of mold spores
  • SERVPRO of Moorhead promises to “mitigate mold” and to “remove active mold colonies”; we will not promise to do the impossible of “getting rid of mold” and we do not believe any company that claims to do so
  • Mold spores open after 24 to 48 hours of exposure to only a little moisture, such as condensation inside a window
  • Killing mold is not enough to prevent it from causing allergic reactions; you must remove it
  • Mold spores are lightweight and invisible to the human eye; they travel through the air vents, landing throughout the home
  • Mold can be pink, red, brown, orange, black, white, gray, purple, powdery, bright-colored, whatever
  • It eats almost everything
  • It grows fast
  • It could have an evil laugh
