Don't Let Mold Grow On You!

Mold growing by bathroom window Don't let mold grow on you! Call SERVPRO!

Finding mold in your home is not as uncommon as you may think. Mold can grow throughout your home, but most commonly in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and even in your basement. What do these rooms all have in common? They all typically have an active source of moisture which enables bacterial growth. This bacterial growth can be seen on walls, ceilings, carpets, and even on furniture.

There are many ways you can prevent mold from growing in your home. Here are a few tips:

  • Routinely check for any leaks or discolored spots in your home. A small leak now could lead to a substantial amount of bacterial growth if not addressed immediately. 
  • Consult a mold expert, like SERVPRO, to test or analyze leaks or signs of bacterial growth. 

 In small amounts, mold is usually harmless, but when it comes in contact with an active source of moisture in your home, it can start to grow out of control. When a home suffers a water damage event, a mold infestation can quickly arise and spread throughout a home in 48-72 hours. If you see signs of mold, contact us today at 323-552-5600 or click here for more information about our mold remediation and restoration process.

Water droplets on a screen When unexpected water damage strikes, know that our teams are here to help!

In 2005 the United States was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, one of the deadliest hurricanes to ever hit our great country. During this horrific natural disaster, approximately 1833 people died while millions of others were left homeless with their entire lives destroyed by the high winds and significant flooding. This Disaster was the costliest storm in modern-day history causing approximately $108 billion dollars worth of damages. This number means nothing when compared to the number of individuals who lost their lives and to those individuals and families we continue to send our hearts and condolences.
While there are certain situations in life that we simply cannot fully prepare for, here are a few do's and don'ts for flood survivors:

  • DO - Register for FEMA disaster assistance at disasterassistance.gov.
  • DO - Report any flood damage to local officials and file a claim with your insurance company.
  • DO - Throw away wet contents such as bedding, carpet, and furniture as these items may become a health hazard due to mold.
  • DO - Inspect your building for structural damage before re-entering your home.
  • DON’T - Wait for your insurance before cleaning up flood damage or starting repairs.
  • DON’T - Worry that Federal Disaster Assistance is money that needs to be repaid.
  • DON’T - Enter a building that may have electrical hazards or structural hazards that could cause secondary damage or could harm an individual.


All-in-all, we hope to never see another disaster like this again in our lifetime. However, know that wherever disaster may strike, the SERVPRO of Park la Brea team will be here to respond and to assist, 24/7, 265!

Microscopic bacteria with the SERVPRO promise Our crews will never leave a job until our customers are 100% satisfied!

Mold remediation is no easy task. Before commencing any mold remediation work our teams will highly recommend a mold inspection test to be completed to assist in identifying the extent of the mold growth. After this mold inspection is completed, and the report is generated, our SERVPRO experts determine the best and most efficient scope of work in order to fully remediate the existing mold in the home or business.

With our hospital-grade, EPA approved disinfectant solution and our highly-trained mold remediation expert team we provide the scope of work, an estimate of costs, and immediately get to work as soon as the estimate is agreed to.

One of the first things we accomplish in a mold damaged area is the installation of air filtration devices. These devices, which contain HEPA filters, are installed in order to create negative air and to clean and recycle the existing air with intentions of cleaning and removing the bacteria from the air.

As we move forward and complete our work, which generally includes removing or remediating any affected materials, we allow the HEPA filters to continue to run for 48 to 72 hours after the completion of the job.


Once all mold remediation is completed by the SERVPRO experts we also recommend that a mold clearance test is performed. Our promise to all of our customers is that we will continue to work at no additional cost until the mold clearance test is passed. However, our team generally passes the mold clearance test on its first try!
