Winterize Your Business

The winter months may call for some businesses to take some standard precautionary measures to help protect their company.  These measures include basic maintenance checks and preparation to help ensure your business and employees remain safe.  A few tips include:

  • Check your business property for down tree limbs and branches.  Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice, and snow can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries
  • Ensure gutters are clean and secure.  Leaves or debris accumulates causing a damming effect on gutters, which could lead to roof problems and water damage 
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas.  Install mats on non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present

Small Water Damages Become Nightmare for Business

11/19/2018 (Permalink)

What happens when those small water damages go unnoticed, or moisture soaks into a building’s structural components where it cannot be detected by the naked eye?  These incidents may sound relatively harmless, but given time, excess moisture can lead to serious problems. 

In as little as 24 to 48 hours, microscopic mold spores, naturally present in all structures, can grow into visible mold.  Fueled by the moisture, these fungi feed on a variety of building subcomponents including wood, paint, paper, carpet padding, and contents. 

While the debate rages on regarding impact mold have on human health, mold and mildew growth are recognized as major contributors to indoor air quality problems.  These nightmares happen every day as a direct result of those small water damages that gradually take their toll on buildings and homes.  The recipe for disaster is the combination of excess moisture, a food source for mold found in organic building materials (such as wood, drywall, some types of insulation), and a time delay in removing the moisture. 

Give SERVPRO of Victoria a call if you have more questions about mold remediation today.  Our team is dedicated to helping your business!
