Mold

Mold Remediation 

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level.

  • 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.

If your home or business has water damage or mold, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, to make your property "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage Causes

2/11/2020 (Permalink)

Weather incidents account for more than half of all homeowner’s insurance claims, with wind, pipes freezing and bursting, roof and flashing leaks and ice dams among the major causes of home damage during weather events.

That’s according to The Travelers Companies Inc., which released information identifying the most common and costliest homeowners’ claims based on a review of its U.S. homeowners insurance claims made from2009 to 2015.

Weather cannot be controlled, but other homeowner insurance claims can be reduced. Water Damage makes up 20% of all homeowner insurance claims. There are typically two main causes of water damage — weather events, such as rain or snow melt, and other issues, such as pipes bursting or leaking. By comparison, more water damage is caused by events such as a pipe bursting, or plumbing or appliance issues, than from the weather.

Two ways homeowners can reduce water damage claims is to winterize their pipes by properly wrapping them and changing water supply lines to appliances and toilets that show wear.

Should you have any questions about water damage prevention or have water damage call SERVPRO of East Portland at (971) 279-2420.
