Mold can be found all around us, its a necessary component in life but should not be necessary in our homes or working spaces. Prompt mitigation is crucial to avoid mold growth, which can be visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours under the situation you're dealing with.

Ways To Keep Your Facility Mold Free

  • Inspect the roof for leaks, windows, building cracks, and any other areas where water can make its way into the structure.
  • Inspect all your plumbing and appliances for leaks and maintenance issues.
  • keep the humidity levels between 30 to 60%.
  • Always have proper drainage away from building foundations.
  • keep all gutters and drains free of debris.
  • Always have a rapid response to water intrusions to avoid secondary damages.

The past few months have been trying for many of us. And while it is not suggested to meet in large groups, we should still seek council from the community for the many issues we face.

The rise of Zoom has created an online community in which we can ask questions and find information without having to directly interact with people. This has changed the way businesses operate and will continue to aid us in the future.

We used to hold meetings and have community gatherings, but now we are advised not to do so. This doesn't mean we can't uphold a strong communication with the people around us.

If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding property restoration or Covid-19 disinfecting, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Redondo Beach. We are happy to be of service! 310-939-9293

Caution Asbestos Hazard

Safety precautions for workers and occupants is our number one priority. Before we can start any demolition after a fire loss, its always important to check to see what year the house was built.

Anything prior to 1986 is required to be tested for lead and asbestos by California State Law. When materials containing lead-asbestos paint are demolished or lead based paint is sanded or scraped, the chips and dust particles from the paint can pose health hazards to anyone breathing or contacting the debris. Materials that are believed to contain asbestos or lead should be tested by a qualified lab. Be sure to consult the insurance adjuster if you suspect asbestos or lead containing materials are present.
