With the cold winter air affecting your pipes its important to maintain them properly! We recently got called out to help a local church that lost heat and suffered from multiple pipe breaks. Water pipes that break due to the cold weather can cause severe damage to your home or business if left unattended or unnoticed. If you notice a loss in pressure to some of your appliances that use water or notice water damage or mold in specific areas of your home/business it is important to get it looked at as quickly as possible. We were able to get to this local church in time to fix the problem for them and be on our way! Remember to stay observant and to be wary of anything that could be wrong in your home or business.

Some of our specialists were recently called out to a senior living home to help fix a sprinkler head break that caused some water damage to the home. It is important to know that during the winter the cold air outside often causes the pipes in our homes to get very fragile, which in turn causes them to break easily, often times caused by the pipes being heated back up and not being able to withstand the pressure in the pipe due to the cold. Our crews were called out and were able to quickly deal with the water both it was able to cause any severe or permanent damage to the home.

We recently donated some Christmas gifts to the kids of the Nanticoke Head Start program for kids in need. After they received the donations they decided to send us thank you cards and pictures of the classes enjoying them. Christmas is about giving to friends, family, and most importantly those in need all around the world. It is important to take a look a round this time of year to see those that are truly in need of some extra help and spread some holiday joy and cheer by giving them something they could use. Whether that something is a nice lunch or even some nice warm clothes for the cold weather, anything that can help people is always appreciated. We strongly encourage all those that can to spread holiday cheer and donate to those in need wherever possible!

Does Your Hanover Township or BearCreek Home Have A Mold Problem?

10/10/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Does Your Hanover Township or BearCreek Home Have A Mold Problem? In Hanover Township and BearCreek, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
