Fire Damage – SERVPRO Helps with City Hall in Bay City

SERVPRO of Bay City aided in the fire damage restoration of the City Hall of Bay City.  The fire is alleged to have started from sparks created by grinding metal in the attic during a construction project. The fire sprinkler system deployed, and then later a pipe burst, further damaging the basement area.  The damage to this storied building was saddening to the community. The rebuilding project was extensive, requiring the SERVPRO Disaster Response Team. Many of SERVPRO”s restoration capabilities were applied to return the building and contents to preloss condition. However, we are proud of our contribution to the restoration. .

Understanding Mold

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Commonly, mold can occur after flooding.

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/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. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

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 can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Mold Tips

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Bay City for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Mold Remediation Services

If you suspect that your home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Bay City has the training, equipment, and expertise to handle the situation.

Do you think it might be black mold?

How Do I Tell If It’s Black Mold?

Since many types of mold can cause reactions, you should contact us regardless of the color or type of mold. In many instances, multiple types of mold may exist in the same house or structure. If you suspect you have a mold problem, contact SERVPRO of Bay City immediately.
