Car Mold Remediation
On the scale of gross things that can happen to your car, mold definitely ranks way up there, and a moldy car can have an awful smell.
The main cause of mold is damp conditions mixed with a warm environment, which can likely occur in a car if a window or sun roof is left open on a rainy day. Mold grows fast and needs only a few days before it colonizes. Unfortunately, once you have mold, it is extremely difficult to purge and can permanently damage your vehicle.
Mold can grow almost anywhere and can spread quickly and easily. Not only is mold gross and smelly, but it can even be hazardous to your health. If you have mold in your car, or mold anywhere, it needs to be dealt with immediately. Luckily for you, SERVPRO of Glen Burnie has trained professionals who can not only remove the mold, but also detail the interior and shine the exterior of your car.
Have You Checked Your Gutters?
Overflowing Gutters Cause Damage
September 22nd marks the first day of Fall and if you have not already, you should check your gutters to make sure they are not clogged. It may seem unlikely, but clogged gutters can lead to water damage in walls and in some cases, a flooded basement.
A clogged gutter can cause the water to hit a concentrated area on the ground, directly under the roofline. This overflow will create problems for the rest of the gutter system and the foundation surrounding the home. Over time, this excess water seeps into the foundation and makes its way to the lowest point of the home, and damages the basement.
If you notice your gutter system sagging or overflowing, or you notice a trench forming around your home’s foundation, contact SERVPRO of Glen Burnie.

While the leaves start to fall and the weather begins to change, you should be preparing your home for the start of the fall season. It is the time of the year when days become shorter, and the weather gets cooler. With the cooler temperatures upon us, get your home ready now.

It’s Only Just Begun
We are barely into summer temperatures and SERVPRO of Glen Burnie has begun to get lots of calls from homeowners experiencing air conditioning condensation causing water damage to their homes.
So, what causes condensation or “sweating?” To begin with, there are a few reasons this happens. Things as simple as clogged ducts or dirty air filters. But it can also be caused by a leaking drip tray or a condensation tube clogged by dirt, algae or minerals or most serious, a frozen evaporator coil which freezes up on scorching days.
One homeowner did not realize her evaporator coil was frozen and when it started to thaw, days later her bedroom ceiling collapsed! Of course, she called SERVPRO and within hours we began to clean up the mess, including insulation and wet drywall. Once the HVAC company repaired the air conditioning, SERVPRO began the drying process using dehumidification, specialized air movers and daily moisture readings.
The lesson here: Utilize a reputable HVAC provider to perform important maintenance on your unit before you have problems. If all else fails, you always have SERVPRO of Glen Burnie to dry you out.
Mold Can Grow Quickly if Moisture Isn’t Eliminated
Don’t let a flood in your Linthicum Heights property go unattended! SERVPRO of Glen Burnie professionals handle water damages every day and know prompt action is required to prevent mold growth. The removal of moisture is crucial in stopping the spread and growth of harmful bacteria and microbes. Mold spores germinate quickly, and colonies spread unless dealt with swiftly. Because our technicians hold IICRC certifications, they know the early warning signs. Technicians use a combination of extraction and dehumidification to remove moist air and replace it with warm, dry air. The use of air movers works to pull moisture up and out of walls and flooring and are used in tandem with dehumidifiers.
If there is an ongoing moisture problem in your building, be alert for:
- The presence of visible mold.
- Strong musty odors, which may indicate mold is present.
- Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth.
- Excessive humidity.
These conditions may require the expertise of a qualified Indoor Air Quality/Environmental Professional to inspect the building for mold growth and water damage problems. Our mold remediation specialists are here to help and will be happy to provide an evaluation.
Spring Showers Bring May Flowers or Do they Bring Flooded Basements?
Do you find as much water from spring storms in your basement as you do in your flower beds? Maybe it’s time to make some adjustments to the landscaping around you home to prevent the water from flowing in. If your yard has high and low points that tend to gather water, creating a sloped swale to guide the water down and away from your home can help you prevent basement flooding and the need for water damage repairs. Some additional landscaping tips to consider are:
- Choose native plants or plant grass
- Add mulch
- Create a rain garden or install rain barrels
- Add drainage areas near walkways and driveways
Using a combination of these tips may prevent storm water from getting into your home, if not we are available to assist with the clean up. Give SERVPRO of Glen Burnie if you find water in your home, 410-766-1110.
