What is Mold?

1/11/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is a type of fungus. It can be found both indoors and outdoors. Research has shown that mold grows best in humid, warm and moist environments. Mold commonly occurs in homes during the winter because of the significant amount of moisture in the air. Below are the common types of molds found indoor.

  • Aspergillus - grows on dust, food made from powder, and most commonly found on drywall.
  • Cladosporium - can grow in both cool and warm environments and is typically found on fabric and on the surface of wood.
  • Penicillium - often has a blue or green color and is typically formed on objects that have been affected by water. 
  • Alternaria - is found in most common damp areas, such as showers or under sinks.

SERVPRO of Pasadena North is open 24-hours, don’t hesitate to call us at anytime. We can have a team of professional technicians, to start on your mold remediation right away. We’ll make it, “Like it never even happened.”

Don't Let Mold Trick You

The beginning of the year, usually starts us off with cold and wet weather. Durning these times, you may notice an increase of moisture in your home. Wether it be on your walls, books, clothes, your child’s toys, mold can grow there. Mold is easier to deal with because you can see it. However, mold spores can be found everywhere and they’re invisible to the naked eye. Spores are found both indoors and outdoors and can travel through your home in many different ways. For example, open windows and ventilation systems are primary ways mold spores can enter your home. The way mold begins to grow is only if the spores were to land on a surface where there’s an excessive amount of moisture. As a reminder, SERVPRO of Pasadena North specializes in Mold Remediation.

Signs of Mold

1/8/2018 (Permalink)

How can you tell if you have mold in your home? Mold has a very distinct and musky smell to it. If you start to notice a very disturbing smell coming from certain walls or platforms in your home, the chances are mold is growing in that area. However, in order to determine whether or not you have mold in your home, an environmental testing company must do the proper tests for our technicians to operate. As you may know, mold can get you sick. It is best that you stay away from the affected area and under no circumstances should you touch mold or clean it yourself. Being exposed to mold can cause excessive sneezing, runny noses, red eyes and even rashes. That’s why it’s best that you call a professional like SERVPRO of Pasadena North, who have the proper knowledge, equipment and highly trained technicians that specialize in mold remediation. We take pride in resolving your mold issue and leaving it, “Like it never even happened.”

Community Pasadena Ronald McDonald House Pasadena Ronald McDonald House

The season of giving is upon us and this year we were able to spread some Holiday cheer, to the children at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House. The House does so much for these children and their families while they receive treatment in the surrounding hospitals. Being able to donate our time with children was a reward in itself. Despite their condition they had positive attitudes and personalities that were larger than life.

We spent the afternoon decorating Christmas stockings. The children were very creative and seeing them smile and forget about their condition for those few hours, was definitely priceless. One of the children we met was Jesus, he had such a charismatic personality and he had a ball decorating several different stockings.

Thank you Pasadena Ronald McDonald House for everything you do, we appreciate the opportunity of being able to give back!
