Mold Detection

Mold damage is a common menace especially during the wet seasons and in any home that has ever been damaged by water or floods.

In most cases, mold growth is visibly detectable though some of growth extents may not be easily detectable without the use of special Mold Detection equipment.

Other places affected by mold are also hidden which make it quite challenging to identify the source of mold smell in the house or even knowing that the house has mold.

Mold Detection

Inhabitants of such a home with hidden mold or visually invisible mold will mostly complain of headaches, coughing, sneezing, respiratory system problems, nasal and sinus congestion and eye irritation. Individuals with marked hypersensitivity to allergens may develop other serious conditions such as asthma.

The process of mold remediation involves three steps:

  1. Mold detection,
  2. Mold identification and
  3. Mold mitigation.

Owing to the current wide extent of mold damage in many states, professional mold removal has become paramount to ensure that effective methods are employed at each level. Such professional mold removers apply highly advanced technology especially in detection and removal of the mold. 

Mold Detection 

Mold Detection is very vital. It may involve visual examination of the room for the presence of mold in all places that are commonly affected by molds or by use of mold odor detection. This is further cross-checked by use of other gadgets such as moisture meter, humidity gauge, borescope, digital camera and thermographic cameras among others.

Mold Identification

After this assessment, the mold damage is graded with respect to its level which defines the mold remediation protocol to follow as outlined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This classification grades mold damage on a Level I through Level IV grading system although to some extent, this grading is considered to be the protection level grading with regard to the extent of mold damage.

Mold Mitigation

Unlike other fungal-related problems which can be controlled by killing the fungi, mold damage is exceptionally challenging. Even when the mold is killed, its harmful effects still remains since the harmful effects are derived from its protein and biochemical constituents that still remain in the air even after killing the molds.

For this reason, mold mitigation combines methods of killing it, removing it from the affected areas and preventing mold re-growth. The killing is done by use of fungicides and biocides while mode removal is done through wet vacuum cleaning, damp wiping with certain detergents and bleaches, dry ice blasting and through High Efficiency Particulate Air Vacuuming (HEPA Vacuuming). To prevent mold re-growth, mold removal and restoration companies use Sodium Bicarbonate blasting and application of non-porous coating layers on the walls.

Some decades ago many people had been considering the do-it-yourself mold removal procedures an effective option but with time, a marked increase in mold removal has made this option quite inadequate.

Mold Detection

Furthermore, any house or premises that have ever experienced water damage will always keep getting mold re-growth thus necessitating professional intervention to curb it. Nonetheless, it is always worthwhile to choose a licensed mold removal and remediation company to ensure that your mold removal needs will be done in accordance with the set mold removal protocol for your own safety and for the safety of your property.

Document Drying

There are times when our worst fears can come true. In these particular situations the worst thing that you can do is panic or give up.

Don`t take things as they are and look for solutions, you might actually prevent the water from damaging your documents.

Document Drying

Water damage is a natural occurrence which can be avoided at times or you can limit its spread by using some useful tips and tricks. Torrential rains, storms, unstable roofing systems, all these can contribute to unwanted situations such as getting documents wet.

Suppose you have left your documents lying around and a storm has managed to enter your house and wet your documents. What are you supposed to do? The documents have a very important value and some information cannot be reproduced. Maybe you don`t have the time to run errands or go from institution to institution until you get new documents.

If you want to reduce the damages as quickly as possible there are some methods that you can use, prior to asking for help from professional companies that deal with the restoration of documents.

Freeze Your Documents?

Depending on the level of the damage, there are some things that you can do in these particular situations.

Document drying can be done by yourself so make sure to give air-drying a go so you can reduce the water damage.

Document Drying

Dehumidification is also another option that proved to be efficient in many cases. Vacuum-freeze drying can also work, as strangely as it may sound it helps restore the documents back to their original state in most cases.

Depending on the type of paper that was used for a particular document, there are certain methods that you should take into consideration. Certificates, legal documents, licenses have a great advantage: if water gets to them, you can restore them easier since they are individual sheets of paper you can dry them in turns, one at a time, reducing the damage. Since these kinds of documents are on individual sheets of papers, this means you have control over the entire document and you can use a low-powered hand blower to dry every document or you can use a dehumidifier. Both methods are efficient and the air flow technique used in these cases saves you time and more importantly, it saves you the valuable documents from being damaged by water. Document Drying isn`t that hard to master as long as you don`t panic and search for solutions that can be found in your household.

If a lot of documents have been damaged by a storm, you haven`t got much time left to consider using an air-flow method. In these situations, a freeze drying option is more advisable. You can use a freezer and place your documents there so that you`ll stop the damages from spreading. Also, if you place the documents in the freezer you`ll stop them from being warped out of shape by the water. You can later thaw out the documents when you have more time at your disposal. The freeze drying option is the best Document Drying option there is.

Some pages of the documents might adhere one to another so make sure to use paper towels that absorb the water. Pay extra attention and use plain paper towels with no symbols, no colors or no ink, because all of these elements would stick to your documents. You can also use talcum powder to make sure that the pages won`t stick with one another.

If a Orlando flood has damaged your documents, then give us a call now.

All of these Document Drying techniques can help you preserve the documents and save you a lot of trouble.

Fire Pretesting and Inspection

Fire Pretesting and Inspection

Fire Pretesting and Inspection

Fire Pretesting and Inspection


For the prevention of fires and protection of life and property, frequent inspection of new constructions, remodeling or tenant improvement is required. State laws have been created to govern the process of inspection in order to ensure proper installation, operation and acceptance of appliances and equipments that prevent and control fire damage.

Fire Pretesting and Inspection of fire safety devices is very important.

Pretesting of the functionality of prevention and damage control equipment is done before inspection. It is done to ensure that owners get a first time clearance from government inspectors or acceptance authority, this helps in getting a good rating. It’s also important to save money and time associated with rescheduling inspections and to prevent liquidated damages caused by failed inspection.

The law does not require pretesting to be done in most states. Where required, a pretest is performed on all systems that require acceptance testing or inspection. A certificate is issued if no failure is found indicating that the system is ready to be tested or inspected. Pretesting is done by independent contractors and can only be scheduled by the permitting company.

Fire Pretesting and Inspection

During inspection, various considerations are made. The conditions and status of a number of items is evaluated. Some items may require immediate replacement or correction while some may be allowed a reasonable time before changes are made. Compliance to certain practices is also checked. The government representatives’ list of issues or items to check includes the following items:

  • Compliance to safe storage and housekeeping practices.
  • Maintenance of adequate and operating fire prevention and damage control equipments such as fire alarms and sprinklers.
  • Unobstructed and clear exit points.
  • Unobstructed and clear emergency exit doors and magnetic door hold open devices.
  • Unobstructed and clear corridors.
  • Compliance to safe capacity limits.
  • Maintenance of fire assembly points around the structure.
  • Compliance to laws on storage of high risk items such as petroleum products.
  • Operating and adequate emergency exit lighting.

The list may not be exclusive or inclusive of all items and issues inspected.

The inspection process follows a similar process as indicated below:

  • The government representatives contacts the owner or manager to schedule an inspection and set the time and location.
  • Inspection takes place during normal business hours and the duration will depend on size of the structure, complexity of the inspection and occupation type.
  • A report that details all observations made is presented to the manager or owner for corrections if necessary. It will outline any changes and compliance issues noted and the urgency of making the changes. Sometimes the closure of the structure may be required till corrections are done.
  • A re-inspection is done 30 to 60 days after the original inspection to ensure compliance or corrections have been made.

The frequency of inspection will depend on the rating the structure receives. The ratings are as follows:
1 – Yearly inspection.
2 – Yearly inspection.
3 – Conducted every 1 year.
4 – Conducted every 3 years.
5 – Conducted every 3 years.
6 – Conducted every 5 years.

Fire Pretesting and Inspection

It is very important to maintain high safety standards and comply to provisions relating to the same.

This will avoid penalties from the authorities and prevent damages caused by fire.

Perhaps nothing has managed to handle more interactions with water flood problems than high-tech drying equipment. And anytime, such devices can bridge in technological solutions to arrive at the highly sought of water removal as well as drying solutions. Let’s take a closer look.

Exploring the Scope of Water Hi-tech Drying Equipment

When it comes to exploring the scope of water high-tech drying equipment, an important component to consider would be our water damage and recovery business, its services and the merits trailing behind its services. Indeed, we have managed to create industry-standard and value-scope water drying and removal solutions through the assistance and high-tech equipment. And anytime, when your home is being impaired by water damage that come as a result of leaks or even flooding, we can easily and integratively mitigate as well as prevent any devastating effects that water can have on your household property.

However, this has not come by chance; it has been through the use of up-to-date hygrometers and moisture detectors that we have been in a position to bring real time to value in the recovery of devastating water effects. And as if this is not enough, our well trained and experienced team of experts can also leverage the assistance of infrared cameras so as locate and identify possible leaks and flooding sources for complete water removal and drying. Through such equipment, we have increased performance and operational efficiency and especially in an outsourced basis.

Indeed, we have always seen the need to equip our experts with high-tech gas powered and submersible pipes. In addition to pumping high level water at great removal pressures, this equipment is vital in continuous high level water pumping. This means that in case of floods and high level water leaks, our submersible and gas powered pumps can offer industry-specific water removal package solutions and hence preaching a sermon everyone would like to hear. Indeed, the performance of such tools has highly been credited behind a wide range of trunk mounts as well as portable extraction units.
