Mold Testing-Protocol-Remediation

Mold Terms

Testing - Testing/assessing is done by taking air samples  and surface samples and sending them off for analysis at at a lab.  In Texas mold assessment/testing and mold remediation are split into two separately licensed business professions.  One cannot test for mold and also remediate mold.  Of course the testing has to be done first.

Protocol - The protocol is a written plan from the mold testing results of what has to be done to remove mold affected materials and get the building to "acceptable levels" of mold.  Acceptable levels are not zero mold.  Wherever you are right now, you are breathing some mold.  It is just there.  Elevated levels are the problem.

Mold assessors write the protocol so one should make sure it is included in the testing fees and not presented as an add-on charge later.

Remediation - Ding, ding, ding!  That's where SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company comes in.  We are licensed mold remediation contractors with a 21 year history of successful mold remediation and many happy customers in the greater Waco and whole Central Texas area.

We would certainly be glad to help you through each step in dealing with mold in your home, business or institution.

SERVPRO of Waco is a long time leader in property restoration.

Ruined Laminate Flooring

3/21/2022 (Permalink)

They don't mix.

Water and laminate flooring don't mix.

For all the great qualities and looks of laminate flooring, it's one nemesis is excess water. 

It just doesn't take it well.

Water laying on a laminate floor can cause blistering and separation of the materials in some types of laminate.  Also the floor can rise or heave up in places with some types of materials.

Having padding underneath the flooring, often referred to as a "floating" floor (the irony) creates a sponge affect holding water/moisture.  Many times water will still squeeze out from under the floor in some areas where one steps after initial water extraction of the floor.

Removal of the floor as part of the water damage restoration is usually the only answer.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, has been providing professional quality water damage restoration to folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area since 2001...over 21 years.

We'd be proud to help you, too.

Board Up Services

3/12/2022 (Permalink)

Building doors boarded Some new wood, fresh paint and changed technique for long term boarded up doors of historic Waco building.

Well, the boogers started bring some tools to get in!

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, provides building board up services for emergency and on-going situations.

This historic Waco building has been boarded up while it's path to a new purpose is being determines.

Seems the youth of the area have quite an interest in getting inside.  It may be the attraction of getting onto the roof a few stories up in the air.

Anyway, someone has been showing up with some basic tools and doing a bit of dismantling.

SERVPRO of Waco changed the boarding up from being screwed in place from the front to having 2X4s and carriage bolts on the front.

Anything removed by tools is now inside the building.  Oh, a slight correction, there are still many wood screws on the front too, as further discouragement. 

Highly successful so far.

We've helped thousand of folks through property damage situations for the past 21 years.

If you need security and/or weather protection boarding up, let us help you too.

Mold Remediation Containment

3/7/2022 (Permalink)

Two nearly two story plastic walls sectioning off a corner area of a large room. We be out here...mold damage work area be in there!

Our handiwork to keep mold spores from spreading out of the affected area.

As mold spores travel and spread by air movement, it is often necessary to build a containment around the work area and trap the disturbed (as in removed) mold spores.

The containment shown in a large, local Waco organization was erected for work in the very back work room area.  

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, successfully removed the mold and mold contaminated materials. Access to outside ventilation was a challenge in this situation.

The job passed clearance testing on the first test and repairs were able to begin immediately.

SERVPRO of Waco has offered highly trained mold remediation services for over 20 years.  Pretty much at the modern beginning of these services.

SERVPRO Industries, of which we are a franchise, was instrumental in helping the industry define the standards for mold remediation.

Restroom Sink Pipe Overnight

3/6/2022 (Permalink)

Flooded warehouse floor with inventory involved Preliminary start of removing water discovered from over night water pipe leak.

Imagine opening your warehouse to THIS in the morning!

All of our buildings have water lines.  Usually in the small out of the way areas. 

But when the lines give away it quickly spreads away from those "small out of the way" areas and becomes a problem for operating the business for the day(s).

In this instance SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, was able to extract the water from backroom warehouse with the business losing  little operating time.

The affected areas were dried quickly.

Now in our 21st year, SERVPRO of Waco successfully has assisted scores of greater Waco and Central Texas businesses though water damage restoration, and many other damage issues.

Military style off road vehicle parked next to the SERVPRO of Waco Promaster van. Two water specialty vehicles.

Water handling vehicles.

The one on the right can cross large amounts of water outside.

The one on the left can remove large amounts of water inside.

They "met up" in Woodway, TX, here.  For the record, the SERVPRO of Waco van was parked first.

In water damage situations, both have strong benefits.

It is more likely folks experiencing a water emergency will encounter it in a building.  There are only a dozen or so little parts stopping the water tower from trying to drain right into your home or building.
