Finding a Professional Mold Remediation Company

Whenever you are facing a mold problem it is good to bring professionals in to determine the best course of action. Unfortunately, some companies aren’t as qualified as others and won’t do as good of a job. The best way to ensure that this doesn’t happen is to do some research on the mold removal company you’re thinking about hiring.

What Certifications Does the Company Have?

Look up the certifications of the company online or call and ask them to provide you with the documentation. Look up each certification online and see what it is for. This will help you understand how qualified the business is to deal with your situation.

How Many Inspections Have They Performed?

Ask the company how many inspections they’ve performed in the past year. This should give you a good estimate of how much of an expert they are when it comes to dealing with mold. The number should be in the hundreds if it’s a small company, even more if it’s larger.

Make sure that all of the conditions that you agree to with the company are met before you give them the whole payment. Some companies may require partial payment up front, it is important to be careful of companies who ask you to pay the full amount right away. Make sure that all of the mold is completely eliminated and someone has inspected the property after the job is done.

Dry Rot Tips and Prevention

IMG_0922

 

It is likely that you have encountered wood outside that has been the victim of dry rot. Dry rot is the result of wood that has been infected with a fungus. It starts by digesting things in the wood that give it structure and support. The wood tends to be drier and you will notice it is lighter if you pick it up.

Causes of Dry Rot

One of the first things that happens in the development of dry rot is that the wood comes into contact with moisture. While the wood is wet the fungus will begin to grow inside of it. Dry rot fungus will continue to eat away at wood until it disintegrates.

Appearance

Many people confuse the appearance of dry rot with that of carpenter ant or termite damage. The major difference here is that ants and termites will remove the wood to specifically form areas where they live. If you definitely have termites, you will notice that your wood has termites inside of it and eggs or termite droppings outside of holes in the wood.

Prevention

One of the best ways you can stop dry rot from happening in your home is by stopping excess moisture. You can do this in many ways such as fixing leaky plumbing or a hole that is allowing water to contact the wood in your home. If the wood is contacting soil it has an increased chance of becoming wet and growing the fungus.

Treating Wood

Many times it is inevitable that water will come into contact with wood. These wooden areas should be treated so that fungus cannot grow in them. Borate is a commonly used fungicide that will help prevent dry rot in the wood on your home. It can also be used to prevent insects from infesting the wood. Wood can be treated whenever you like and should be done regularly to increase its effectiveness.

Wood Restoration

If dry rot has gotten the best of your home and you can’t simply treat the wood to solve the problem, you will need to replace the damaged areas. Damaged wood can be replaced by companies like Water Damage Zone who are experienced at restoring homes from water damage. Wooden areas commonly need to be replaced after excessive damage has occurred. Professionals will help you restore your home if you are dealing with large amounts of dry rot.

How to Stop an Overflowing Toilet

toilet clog

 

Seeing a toilet begin to overflow is often like watching a car crash. You know it’s coming, but there’s not much you can do to stop it. Toilet overflows can be stopped if you act quickly and follow these steps:

1. Switch the water supply off to the toilet as quickly as possible. It is a metal valve that is usually located near the bottom side of the bowl. Turn it counterclockwise to shut it off. This will prevent the toilet from having the water that it needs to keep overflowing.

2. Take the top off from the tank on the back of the toilet. Lift the float ball high so that the water stops running. Now all the water should be off so that you can begin to figure out what you need to do to fix your toilet.

3. Grab a plunger and apply it to the hole inside of the toilet bowl. It should be covering the entire hole completely. Continue to pump the toilet, increasing in power as you work. This should dislodge difficult clogs and allow water to pass through your pipes.

4. Also, if the issue is with the float mechanism in the tank of the toilet, it can be adjusted to be lower in the tank. This will prevent the tank of your toilet from overflowing. Check to make sure that the chain on the float mechanism isn’t caught on anything.

5. If this problem persists or becomes unmanageable, call a plumber or water damage professionals like Water Damage Zone to fix your overflowing toilet.

By catching a toilet overflow early and fixing it, you can prevent yourself from dealing with worse problems in the future. If your pipes become heavily clogged, it can often be impossible to clear all of the debris from them. Professionals have the expertise needed to effectively and completely restore your toilet to its original condition.
