Mold Mishap? Don't Panic, Call SERVPRO® of Oxnard!

6/14/2024 (Permalink)

Mold. Just the word can send shivers down your spine. Here in Oxnard, with our mild, humid climate, mold growth can be a concern for homeowners and business owners alike. But before you panic, SERVPRO of Oxnard is here to help!

What to Do:

  • Identify the Source: Mold thrives on moisture. Look for leaks, condensation, or areas with poor ventilation.
  • Contain the Mold: If the affected area is small (less than 10 square feet), you can try containing it yourself with plastic sheeting.
  • Minimize Exposure: Avoid disturbing the mold, which can release spores. Wear protective gear like a mask and gloves if entering the area.
  • Call SERVPRO of Oxnard: Our mold remediation technicians are highly trained and equipped to safely remove mold and address the moisture source.

What NOT to Do:

  • Don't Ignore It: Mold won't go away on its own and can worsen over time, impacting your health and property.
  • Don't Use Bleach: Bleach can kill surface mold but doesn't address the root cause and may even spread spores.
  • Don't Attempt Large-Scale Remediation: DIY mold removal for large areas can be dangerous. Improper handling can release spores and expose you to health risks.
  • Don't Hesitate to Call Professionals: SERVPRO of Oxnard adheres to the safety standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) [OSHA mold website] and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) [EPA mold website] to ensure a safe and effective remediation process.
