Mold Remediation Check out these Mold Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold in your Edison Home When mold is agitated, and not treated properly, it can spread throughout your property.

If you spot mold in your home, leave it alone. By improperly treating it, you can unintentionally spread mold spores throughout your home. When microbial growth is disrupted, it can unload spores that become airborne and contaminate the rest of your home.

What to Do:

  • Close off any area that you think may be affected and stay out until you have it looked and treated by a remediation specialist.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and any equipment that helps circulate air flow.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Edison for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Do not touch the possible mold growth
  • Do not attempt to clean and treat the affected area.
  • Do not use household cleaners on mold.

About Our Mold Remediation Services

SERVPRO of Edison has certified technicians that are trained to properly remediate mold clean-ups. We have specialized equipment that helps contain the area and clean the microbial growth thoroughly.

Edison Smoke and Soot Cleanup

3/28/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Edison will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
