SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian knows how to get you back to normal quickly when you have flood or storm water in your Edgewater home.

We here at SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian can provide you with this help. Don’t let a flood in your Pasadena property get you down! We will be there to help 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Does Your Home Have a Mold Problem?

5/21/2021 (Permalink)

South County is fairly used to water damage and mold since the area tends to be very low lying. SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian recently did a mold remediation job in Deale.

With a lot of rain in the previous month, water seeped into a Deale basement and the homeowners were unaware until they went downstairs to change a furnace filter and smelled a strong, musty odor. Since the furnace was running with a moldy filter mold spores were floating throughout the ductwork. What a mess and potential health problem this could have been. Fortunately, the homeowners call SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian to come out and evaluate the home. The next day, our trained technicians used specialized equipment to properly remediate the mold problem quickly and safely, including the ducts!

If you suspect mold, stay out of affected areas, turn the HVAC system and fans OFF and call us, SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian at 410-867-3590, we will be there fast to help and solve your problem.

Water Damage In Anne Arundel County

Sprinkler Fire Sprinkler Malfunction

SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian provides mitigation services for all of lower Anne Arundel County. Recently we did a job for a management company that suffered a sprinkler system malfunction in one of their buildings.  Several businesses suffered water damage and needed our help. There was extensive damage to the flooring and walls, because everyone was working remotely during Covid and it was some time before the damage was discovered. 

When we arrived at the location, we were fast to start removing non- salvageable items and getting the structure to start to dry.  Then came the herculean task of helping to package content for storage until the structure had been restored. We were able to quickly get a storage container placed in the parking lot and moved the contents into it.  Once the structure had dried, drywall was replaced, walls painted and flooring was replaced we were able to assist in the replacement of the office furniture in the business, to help the business get back to full operation quickly. 

Although a commercial loss is different than a residential loss the desired result is the same, return the customers life back to normal as quickly as possible.  We at SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian take that to heart and do everything we can to make it happen.  Call us at 410-923-6166 if you find yourself in need of service. We are available 24-7, 7 days a week. You can count on our team to get your business backup and running FAST, FAST, FAST.

How Can You Limit Your Exposure to Mold?

3/10/2021 (Permalink)

Mold Spores Mold growth

We’re all exposed to mold every day, but living or working in a moldy environment increases the likelihood of developing mold-related symptoms.

If you think a space you frequent is affected, it’s important to limit your exposure.  

Limit exposure you say, how am I to do that when mold is found in every environment?  You may feel like you’re fighting a losing battle. With mold in so many places, indoors and out it can be challenging. You can take steps to limit your exposure indoors and make your home or business less mold-friendly. The key is to control the amount of moisture in the air. Mold is most frequently found in bathrooms, kitchens, attics and basements.

 Follow these steps to help limit moisture in these areas:

  • Use an exhaust fan or open a window in the bathroom it will draw moisture up and out
  • Quick action can pay off! Fix leaky pipes, faucets or appliances right away
  • Lower the humidity in your basement by using a dehumidifier and choosing flooring that doesn’t hold moisture. Be careful what you store there. Mold will grow on old papers bedding and clothes. Use waterproof plastic containers instead of boxes whenever possible. Rake dead leaves from around the foundation of your home. Make sure as much as possible that rainwater drains away from your home. Clear out that drain at the bottom of your basement steps if it clogs water will run right in around the door flooding your basement.
  • Check roof gutters for proper drainage so waters isn’t leaking back into your attic area.

 Any and all of these steps will help to prevent mold growth, if you do find you have a mold problem.  Call the experts, at SERVPRO of  Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian at 410-923-6166. We are here to help and will provide you with the expertise that comes with over 40 years of service in the mold remediation industry in Anne Arundel County.

Do You Have a Home Evacuation Plan?

2/28/2021 (Permalink)

Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you with as little as one or two minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds.

If a fire breaks out in your home have you established an evacuation plan? Pull together everyone in your household and make a fire escape plan. How will you exit and where will you meet are both key aspects that should be discussed.

A couple tips to remember; stay low to avoid smoke, fumes and super heated gases. Close doors as you leave to confine fire as much as possible. Most importantly if a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP.
