mold What is Black Mold?

Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called “black mold” or “toxic mold”. Sensational news reports warn about the dangers of black mold and these stories can be alarming and confusing. Any mold in your home should be treated with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb the mold.

How Do I Tell If It’s Black Mold?

Since many types of mold can produce health effects, you should contact a qualified mold remediation company regardless of the color or type of mold. In many instances, multiple types of mold can exist in the same house or structure. If you suspect that you have a mold problem, contact SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo 24/7 for professional assistance immediately.

  • How long will the construction project take?
    • Each construction project is unique in size and scope, so the length of time to complete varies. We’ll provide you with a timeline and communicate with you regularly on the status of your project. Your participation in making certain decisions about your work also impacts the schedule.
  • Will I have to be home all the time?
    • No, you do not need to be present while we work to repair your home. We will communicate regularly with you about the timeline and current stage of the project, so you are aware of the activities occurring on any given day.

  • Do my belongings need to be moved away from the premises?

Toilet Let us clean up the water after the leak has been stopped! Call SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo today! (269)-342-2366

Did you all of a sudden notice water dripping through your ceiling from your upstairs bathroom? Did you run upstairs to find water everywhere? If you have standing water, don’t attempt to vacuum it up with your household vacuum. Regular vacuum cleaners weren’t intended to pick up water. Trying to suck up the water can cause damage to your machine. If you don’t own a wet/dry vacuum cleaner and you have standing water in your home or business, don’t worry!

WATER EXTRACTION

SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo uses extractors to remove excess water from floors following a flood, storm, or even a busted pipe. Our extractors are mounted to the truck or portable to allow better access inside structures. When the water is extracted quickly, the area can usually be dried much quicker. Not only do we extract the water but we ensure everything has been dried thoroughly. We have drying down to a science... literally. The properties of temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, and dew point are measured to evaluate air conditions which help our technicians create the proper atmosphere for more efficient drying.

Let us clean up the water after the leak has been stopped! Call SERVPRO of East Kalamazoo (269)-342-2366.
