Mold Remediation Reducing Your Exposure to Mold In Peoria Let SERVPRO Fix Your Mold Problem

Mold and mildew are common nuisances in our Peoria community.

However, you can greatly reduce the risk of infestation in your home or office. It’s worthwhile to consider because reducing exposure to mold in Peoria is important for both you and your home’s health and well-being. 

Mold spores in the home environment have been known to cause adverse health effects. In addition, mold colonies can cause unsightly damage to your home, like staining of furniture and carpeting. On top of that, mold can weaken the walls and foundation of your home, leading to structural deterioration.

While completely eradicating mold spores in your home environment is not possible, you can lessen the chance of mold infestation in your home.

Reduce your exposure to mold by following these helpful tips from the remediation experts at your local SERVPRO:

1. Repair leaks quickly and thoroughly. 
2. Use a dehumidifier when water is present. 
3. Use cleansers that kill mold and mildew. 

If you find that mold or mildew grows inside your home or office, it could be signs of a more serious problem.

Burn Awareness Month Is February

Fire Damage Burn Awareness Month Is February Practice Burn Awareness!

We thought it was a good time to share some tips that could keep you and your family safe from getting burned.

Scalds are one of the leading causes of burns in children under the age of 9 in the United States.

  • To prevent your children from being scalded by hot water make sure that you are checking the temperature of their bath water before placing them in the bathtub.
  • To ensure that your water won't be too hot adjust your Hot Water Heater to no more than 120 degrees F so that the chance of having water hot enough to scald someone is drastically reduced.
  • When cooking, make sure you turn your pot handles in over the counters so that they don't get knocked over by you or your kids by accident.

If you do get burned the best thing you can do first is to place the burned area under cool (not cold) water for a few minutes to lessen the severity of the burn. 

If any scalds are from the result of a fire and the damage is too much for you to clean yourself, call SERVPRO (309) 637-7300
