How DIRTY are your carpets and floors?  Where your children play with their toys and lie down to watch their favorite cartoon.  Even the highest quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time.  IICRC states that 70% of soil in carpet is dry soil.  Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include:

- Regular vacuuming

- Spot removal

- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting

- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns

- Using walk-off matts to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpets every 12 months.

So, If you need your carpets clean, make sure you call SERVPRO of Buffalo-Tonawanda 716-694-9949.  When calling be sure to have the estimated room sizes so they can calculate a price for you.

Storm Warning!

Storm Damage Storm Warning! Snow Storm in Buffalo

Storms can come upon us without much warning. Yes, we watch the news, but bad weather is still unpredictable, so we need to take steps to keep our homes safe from storm damage.

An inspection of your home’s premises is a really good idea to conduct before inclement weather hits. A leaky roof or windows can cause big problems during extreme conditions such as a snow storm or heavy rains. Do all your exterior doors and windows fit correctly? When’s the last time you took a look at your roof to see how things are looking up there? These are all great questions to ask yourself.

Loose shutters and rain gutters can present a real problem in high winds, as can unstable large trees. It might be a good idea to trim back trees and bushes with large heavy branches that are not in good condition, so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Take time to inspect areas around your home and street and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch can cause a lot of damage by flooding your property during, or even after, a storm.

Your family is very precious to you. In the event of a storm, do you have a system in place that will help you to get information to everyone in case of a weather emergency? Most of us use our cell phones to communicate these days, but in the case of a bad storm, your cell phone service could be at risk. You might consider installing a good old-fashioned landline, just in case. If you or a family member gets stuck at work or out doing errands, families will worry, so it’s vital that lines of communication stay open.

The SERVPRO team of SERVPRO of BUFFALO-TONAWANDA has your back in the event of storm damage, fire damage, or mold issues. You can give us a call today at 716-694-9949 or visit us on our website:

Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation and Mold Removal Mold Discovered in an attic. SERVPRO of BUFFALO-TONAWANDA 716-694-9949

Mold is found under the fungi classification.  It can be a soft green, pink, black or at times a gray growth which develops on objects or old food left out for a lengthy period in warm, wet air.  It can be found in outdoor and indoor.  It is important for the indoor humidity to be kept below 45%. Floods and high humidity levels often lead to microbial growth and fungus. The most efficient method of controlling microbial growth is by moderation temperature. During a floor mold can start to form in 72 hours in perfect conditions.  When the temperature is lowered, the rate of microbial growth decreases rapidly.  Molds are usually accompanied by a musty odor which can lead to health issues in certain individuals.  These colonies are responsible for the production of irritants and allergens that affect the health of people. 

An environmental hygienist can determine what treatment can be used for mold remediation.  They will test all affected areas by taking samples of air and swab surfaces.  They design a specific protocol for SERVPRO to follow. SERVPRO utilizes air scrubbers to perform mold remediation under negative pressure, containment to isolate the affected areas, heap vacuuming and specialize cleaning and sealing.  Once the work is completed the environmental hygienist returns to perform post testing to ensure levels are within normal levels and your home is back to being safe.  Call SERVPRO of BUFFALO-TONAWANDA for your water damage and mold needs.
