Mold

10/17/2019 (Permalink)

Climate is a perfect environment for mold.  Over growth of indoor mold can occur for many reasons, the most typical setting we find an over growth of mold is in homes that have been unoccupied for a length of time.  The main reason for this is because of the lack of air movement in the home. When a home or business owner’s leave their property it is usually left lock up, window closed tight, and AC turned off. With our humid and moderate temperatures here in Hawaii a home without air movement can be a mold haven, a perfect place for it to grow undisturbed.

 Mold is present in almost every environment, indoor and outdoor. It isn't of much concern until the spore count ie, how much mold is present, reaches an unhealthy level. This is when health issues can arise. Mold is not only a health concern but it can also cause rot to occur on the surface it is growing on. This can weaken framing or cabinetry and decay sheet rock and flooring.

 If you find your home is in need of help due to an over growth of mold don't hesitate to call on SERVPRO of Warren County we are always here to help.

Disaster

There's nothing like when a good plan comes together. One of the best plans someone can make is to plan for disasters.

Ask yourself these questions: What will I do if there's a fire at my home or work? What if there's an extended power outage? If my family aren't together, how will we regroup? Am I prepared to evacuate and leave?

Your answer to those questions might say whether you need a plan or not. What's the first step? 

Have a conversation with your family, make a plan, and practice it. Follow alerts on social media/TV from emergency & weather responders. 

We never know when a disaster will happen, being prepared will help reinforce our families safety. And as always give us a call for any water, fire, or mold damages.

Depends on the Damage Source

Some policies cover mold caused by certain water sources. For example, sudden catastrophes, such as burst pipes or sewer backups, are more likely to be covered than lingering maintenance issues. However, fast action to mitigate the water damage is needed not to break your part of the agreement with your insurer. SERVPRO can respond quickly to any water or mold issue. There are policies that put a small limit on the liability to repair, usually only about $5 to 20 thousand dollars. This may be just a drop in the bucket for the actual cost of a mold remediation project.

Your mold coverage likely will not include the following sources of water damage:

Continuous faucet leaks, ignored by the homeowner
Drainage problems in the yard, exterior issue
Condensation buildup from lack of proper ventilation
Flood waters

Commercial insurance

10/11/2019 (Permalink)

Water is a lot more damaging than most people give it credit for, and even a minor leak can turn into a costly and time-consuming property issue. When it affects a business, water can destroy important documents, expensive equipment and office furniture, not to mention the building itself. For this reason, business owners should invest in a sound business policy that covers perils such as water damage.

What To Look for in Your Commercial Insurance Policy

Most commercial insurance policies for water loss cover damages caused by burst or broken pipes and gradual leaks. Unfortunately, many policies contain exclusions, which you want to be aware of so that you can ensure you are covered for the appropriate risks. Some exclusions to look out for include the following:

  • Concurrent causation
  • Floods
  • Backup of sewer and drains
  • Water damage from storms

Unfortunately, many business insurance policies require business owners to carry a ride-on, that a lot don’t think about adding
