Fire Clean Up In the Galesburg Area

Fire Damage Fire Clean Up In the Galesburg Area Smoke and Heat Rise, So Stay Low For As Long AS You Can!

Get Low - Crawl under the smoke to get out safely.

We asked the local Fire Department for some fire safety tips and ways to prevent extra harm from fires. The tip about getting low and crawling out of a home or building seems a little bit drastic or unnecessary until you start breathing in the smoke.

So many of the victims that deadly fires have consumed have passed out from breathing too much smoke, getting low gives someone a fighting chance to exit the building because smoke rises.

So please if you are caught in a fire and you can make your way out, make sure you stay low and yes even crawl. It might be the difference between your life and your death.

If you have had fire damage in the Peoria area that needs to be cleaned up call SERVPRO to help put your life back together. (309) 342-0073

Be Careful Around Mold

Mold Remediation Be Careful Around Mold Take The Proper Precautions With Mold

SERVPRO handles water damages every day and knows that fast action is required to prevent mold from growing.

Mold is more likely to spread when an environment has been subject to moisture for a long period of time. If your unit has sustained a recent water damage, it is so important to remove excess water and dry the structure promptly.

If there is an ongoing moisture problem in the building, it is important to be alert for:

  • The presence of visible mold.
  • Strong musty odors which may indicate mold is present.
  • Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused previous mold growth.
  • Excessive humidity.

These conditions may require the expertise of a qualified Indoor Air Quality/Environmental Professional to inspect the building for mold growth and water damage problems.

Call us today to schedule a mold check for your home: (309) 342-0073

Understanding Mold in Galesburg

Mold Remediation Understanding Mold in Galesburg Break The Mold!

When water intrudes on to your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours.

Read the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even come inside on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores love 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. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
