Mold Remediation Green Bay Residents:  Follow These Mold Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold Be careful! Without proper training, you could be spreading mold throughout your home.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of East Brown County and West Brown County 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.

Does Your DePere Home Have A Mold Problem?

Mold Remediation Does Your DePere Home Have A Mold Problem? In DePere mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

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.

Community SERVPRO of East and West Brown County Fireworks Tips SERVPRO fireworks tips in Green Bay, WI

Did you know fireworks cause nearly 20,000 home fires every year? Don't let your relaxing holiday weekend turn into a statistic.  Just last 4th of July SERVPRO of East and West Brown County was called on to mitigate and restore a garage fire that was caused by throwing spent fireworks instead a trash can inside a detached garage.  The homeowners had a small family gathering and it is thought that one of the childrens disposed of a sparkler in the trashcan after it was extinguished.  Apparently a hot ember was enough to smolder for hours before it finally broke into flames in the middle of the night and caused the whole garage to catch fire.  Accidents happen but please be extra careful this Independance day with both your personal safety and the safety of your property.  We at SERVPRO of East and West Brown County wish you all a great holiday and are always here when you need us for your fire, water, mold and biohazard needs!
