Mold in the window sills

6/3/2022 (Permalink)

Recently we received a call from a homeowner that was concerned about multiple mold sightings in window seals. When our estimator went out to the home he discovered that due to the lack of proper sealing in the window frame itself, it had allowed water to enter through the window causing mold spores to then grow and reproduce.

Windows have two sides – one on the inside and one that faces outside. Should windows be caulked on the outside? Yes, it's best to apply caulk to both the interior and exterior when installing new windows. This will seal any unwanted air leaks.

When a business owner has a commercial water loss there are a lot of steps ahead that need to be taken to get the problem fixed quickly and correctly. According the Hartford these are the four steps to take for a commercial water damage.

  1. Identify the source of water damage. Water leaks and intrusions can happen in many places. Some common areas to check are pipes or holes in your roof or walls. You can also work with a local plumber to help identify the source.
  2. If necessary, shut off the water main. If you have a leaking or burst pipe, shut off the water main to prevent more damage.
  3. Immediately contact your insurance company. Notify your insurance company about the water damage as soon as possible. It’s a good idea to also document the damage with photos.
  4. Find a restoration team. You can work with your insurer to find a company specializing in commercial water damage repair. If there’s extensive damage, there may be an emergency service for water extraction or mold remediation available for your business.

Mold grows almost anywhere

Mold can happen nearly anywhere. According to the EPA website molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Mold tends to grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Mold can also grow on many different surfaces. For example, mold grows on surface like wood, tile, cardboard, paint, wallpaper, insulation, carpet and drywall just to name few.

Mold can be a very scary thing to deal with so please consult a professional if you suspect you may have mold. If you have any fire, water or mold disasters give SERVPRO a call today! We have trained professionals ready to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

This month we were called out to an apartment complex that had a huge 4 story disaster due to pipes bursting. Over 30,000 gallons of water flowed through four stories of apartments causing a huge amount of water damage. SERPVRO was on the scene in less than an hour with a huge team ready to go!

The apartment owner knew this process would be a lot of work and let us get right to work. Our guys started with extracting all of the water and setting up Dehumidifiers to dry up all the water. We did moisture readings everywhere to detect all water or moisture that was present. We then continued to monitor all moisture levels.
