The Dangers of Mold!

6/2/2019 (Permalink)

When Cape May county suffers from heavy rains and flooding, you may notice mold growing in your rental property or business. The spot may look like much, but for many people, mold can present a wide range of health risks — particularly when the problem is widespread. To help you protect your property — and recognize the importance of mold remediation — here are a few important details to know about how this type of fungus can harm the body.

How Does Mold Affect Health?

As this variety of fungus grows, it produces microscopic spores that can spread through your property. When inhaled, individuals with sensitivities to mold may experience chronic breathing problems, skin irritation, and congestion.

These reactions are typically more common among those with allergies or asthma. When people have compromised immune systems, mold-related health problems can lead to infections, such as those affecting the lungs. In addition to putting human health in danger, mold growth is also known to similarly affect pets.

How Can You Prevent Mold-Related Health Problems?

The best way to avoid these health risks is to limit the amount of moisture in your home, as this fungus thrives in damp, humid conditions. Some approaches to DIY mold remediation include fixing leaks, using a dehumidifier, and insulating windows to prevent condensation. If your home is subject to water damage, hire an emergency restoration service to thoroughly dry and clean the area.

What Should You Do If You Spot Mold in Your Home or Business?

Even by following the above steps, it’s likely that you will encounter this problem at some point. If the issue is small and contained, you can usually tackle it on your own by washing the surface with a soap and water solution. However, if you face recurring or widespread growth, hire a professional mold remediation team.

If mold is putting your household’s health at risk, the trusted Franchise Professionals at SERVPRO® of Cape May County will put your home on the path to wellness. As leading mold remediation and restoration service experts, we know how to tackle mold growth strategically. Equipped with heavy-duty cleaning tools, our crew will not only remove spots, but also implement solutions to control moisture and prevent the problem from returning. To arrange fast and effective clean-up, call a helpful representative at 609-624-0202 today.

Do You Have Dirty Ducts?

Cleaning Do You Have Dirty Ducts? What's lurking in your ducts?

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality With Duct Cleaning.

Did you know your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality? Inspecting the ductwork in your business or home should be a high priority. Especially now when the shore towns are gearing up to open for business!

Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as mold, and irritating dust throughout your property.

A routine part of your local SERVPRO of Cape May County's service is inspecting the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life-span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may help save you money.

Duct cleaning may not always be necessary, and you can count on a SERVPRO of Cape May County Franchise Professional to give an honest opinion (and show you). We will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can help save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, our Franchise Professionals at can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

The SERVPRO Duct Cleaning System is proven and cost-efficient. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of Cape May County Franchise Professionals use a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

  • The process begins by using patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
  • Next, a powerful pushy-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97% of the particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating power product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

We know Cape May County from Ocean City to Avalon and Cape May - we are HERE TO HELP and understand the uniqueness of our towns. We can schedule services for the least amount of interruption to your business. For more information on duct cleaning, or to schedule an appointment, contact SERVPRO of Cape May County today!

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning Process

5/5/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning Process Call for your duct cleaning today!

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning Process

  • Vent covers and returns are removed and thoroughly cleaned to remove any build-up that has accumulated.

  • A highly-trained technician will attach a high-powered vacuum system to your air duct system. This will create a vacuum in your ducting and returns, and pulls the collected debris to our filtration system. Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97% of particles in the airstream.

  • Going to each vent, we use one of our tools to agitate and remove debris from each branch of the duct work. We select the tool we use based on your type of ducting. These can include compressed air or a whip, that uses “tentacles” to agitate years of debris.

  • While your system is still under vacuum pressure, we mist in an EPA registered antimicrobial agent into the duct work. This is the same agent we use during water damage or mold remediation losses. By using this, we help eliminate mold and bacteria.

  • Finally, duct sealer is applied to create a mold and mildew resistant barrier between living and non-living spaces.

If you have replacement filters on site, we will be more than happy to install them at no additional cost. Call SERVPRO of Cape May County, 609-624-0202 and ask for Harold Lapp!

Board-ups/Roof Tarping/Property Securing - In some cases it may be important to secure openings to your home or structure using sturdy, durable materials designed to protect it from both weather intrusion and intrusion by outsiders. SERVPRO of Cape May County Franchise Professionals may perform the board-up and tarping themselves, or outside subcontractors may be utilized.

Move-Outs - If prolonged exposure to the loss event could cause additional damage to your contents, your contractor requests relocation of the contents, or the safety of your contents is a concern, a move-out may be recommended. In these situations, SERVPRO of Cape May County Franchise Professionals are trained to properly inventory, move out and control the contents from the structure during the cleaning, restoration and deodorization process.

Reconstruction Services - Once the damaged materials are removed from your home or business other construction may be needed to restore your property to preloss condition. Your local SERVPRO of Cape May County Franchise Professional is trained with the proper equipment to replace flooring, carpet, tile, hardwood floors, and doors (interior, exterior, steel & storefront). We can paint many surfaces, work on acoustic ceilings, trim, bathroom/kitchen remodels and home/office renovations.
