These guys are absolutely amazing. Water in the basement, and I'm in a panic. I call them at Noon on a Saturday, and they answer! A half hour later they are in my driveway, with a mass of equipment, and start clearing up the problem. After a few hours of rather smelly work, the basement is clean and disinfected. Fans are placed all over the place to dry things up, and I have my basement back. They haul away the sodden junk from the basement. If I had tried to do this myself, it would have taken weeks, and still would not have been completed as well.Randy and Adam from ServPro of SW GR came to our rescue, and did a superb, very professional job of taking care of a real mess. What is more, is that from the very instant that I spoke to them on the phone, and all through the job, they very competently and confidently explained to us how things were going to progress, and they delivered on every single bit of it. This was, I know, a long way from the disasters that befall some unlucky people, but it was a real disaster to me. They immediately made us feel like things were going to get better quickly, and they did. I will call them again, and recommend them to anyone I know in a heartbeat. They are miraculous professionals whose job is to save people in trouble. They certainly did that for me.
Tips & Advices
Home insurance typically doesn’t cover mold inspection--mold remediation overall is a category that homeowner insurance rarely covers. If caused by a “specified peril” such as a burst pipe, household appliance overflow or flood, the insurance will cover expenses related to mold remediation.
Yes, mold can be dangerous to human health. The types of mold that can cause harm to humans are allergenic mold and the black mold strain called stachybotrys atra. Certain black molds produce toxins, and can be hazardous to respiratory health. There are types of green mold that cause allergic reactions in some people that can be as severe as black mold sickness.
Mold testing begins with a visual inspection, that is performed with specialized equipment, such as thermal imaging cameras. Once the top problem spots are identified, the mold specialist will get an air sample in the most problematic zone, and compare it to an air sample from fresh outdoor air. Follow-up tests--either more air samples or surface swab analyses--cost extra.
Black mold has become synonymous with toxic mold, but this is misleading. Black mold really just refers to the color of the mold, and there are many types of mold that present as black and are not toxic. The group called stachybotrys atra can produce mycotoxins, which are potentially quite dangerous to human respiratory systems.
A mold inspector should be called if you suspect there may be mold somewhere in the house, but you cannot find it on your own. It should also be called if mold is found, but it is difficult to assess what type it is.
