Ordinary Mold

Ordinary Mold

Fungi and mold naturally occur in our environment.  In fact, over 100,000 kinds of fungi have been identified.  Fungi produce some very useful results.  Yeast is a type of fungi used in preparing breads, baked goods and other foods products, including some alcoholic beverages. The unique flavor of blue cheese is a result of mold. An edible mushroom is simply a type of fungi.

Even though some forms of mold can add value to our lives, other forms can be harmful.  Excessive amounts of mold, different types of mold, and/or exposure to molds may present health concerns for some people.

Why did we drill holes in the wall?

Why did we drill holes in the wall?

Most interior walls are built with drywall, which absorbs water.  Even a small amount of water at the base of the wall can become a big problem over time, affecting the framing materials behind the wall.

When drywall gets wet, it isn’t normally salvaged and will need to be replaced.  The longer the drywall is saturated, the chances are more likely that they will need to be replaced.

The key to dry wet walls quickly is to get air moving around them. 

By drilling holes, we can dry the wall cavity from the inside out. If the interior wall was wet for a short period, the wall cavity can be dried by the inside out by drilling holes at the base. Drilling holes allows efficient drying with minimal damage, reducing mitigation and rebuild costs.

Kevin Introduces the Dehumidifier!

Kevin Introduces the Dehumidifier!

You may see a dehumidifier in your home if you've had a water loss. The dehumidifier sucks in moist air and condenses the water vapor, turning it to liquid. The water exits the machine through a tube to a predetermined drainage point, such as a bathtub or sink. In addition, the air that is sucked in is then heated and put back into the room. The dehumidifier speeds up the drying process for any wet materials, such as carpet or upholstered furniture. It also helps control moisture levels and humidity and can be used in homes, warehouses, businesses or any indoor location a water loss has happened.
