Commercial Mold Problem in Sandy

When the roof to our office complex leaked, enough moisture came into the building to create a mold problem. There was a musty odor that I could not locate anywhere in the building. The next day I looked up and saw mold spreading across the ceiling where it hadn’t been yesterday. I called SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy and they sent a team out to mitigate and remediate the problem. Here are some facts about mold from our website:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning or heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed to discourage the mold from returning
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas

  • Mold spores are microscopic and float in the atmosphere, and can enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems, or even come indoors on your clothing or pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. or the mold may return
  • Mold often produces a strong musty odor, and can lead you to possible mold problem areas

  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent

Contents Restoration Services in Oregon City?

12/20/2021 (Permalink)

When my Oregon City home basement flooded, we were out of town, and the damage wasn’t discovered for a few days. Everything that touched the ground was damaged by water. All the furniture and cardboard boxes stored down in the basement were standing in water. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy.

The SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy technicians arrived quickly, assessed the situation, and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. They contacted my insurance adjuster and helped me with the insurance paperwork and process. Fortunately, they were able to clean and restore most of the items from my basement and return them to preloss condition. Here are the cleaning methods they used:

  • Dry Cleaning - used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning
  • Wet Cleaning - an effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues
  • Spray and Wipe - effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning
  • Foam Cleaning - used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned
  • Abrasive Cleaning - involves agitation of the surface being cleaned
  • Immersion Cleaning - contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product

Sinking Feeling in Gresham?

I was down in my office for a couple of hours on a conference call before I heard a funny dripping and splashing sound coming down the stairs. When I investigated, I discovered that my daughter had left the sink running in my Gresham home. There was a shallow lake in the bathroom, and water was running down the hallway. The stairway carpeting was saturated. My neighbor told me to call SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy and I’m glad I did.

I was amazed at how quickly the SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy technicians arrived. They quickly extracted the water and set up powerful air blowers and movers to dry the upstairs and downstairs areas that were flooded. Thanks to their fast mitigation, the floors were not warped or damaged, and there was no damage to the walls and baseboards. They documented the drying process and cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the affected areas.
