Emergency services are always available, even during holidays and weekends, and those odd hours that no one can agree are early mornings or late nights.

When should you suspect mold damage?

  • Long-term leak: even a small drip can lead to mold damage if the moisture is constant. Mold doesn’t much water to thrive.
  • There is a musty smell. Even mold that doesn’t cause allergies or cause health effects has an unpleasant odor. By the way, SERVPRO of Spring Valley/Jamul has equipment that removes odors; we don’t just mask them.
  • Flooding: floods from the outside aren’t usually a problem in San Diego County, but dishwashers, washing machines, showers, and appliances can leak or burst in any home or in any part of the country.
  • Water marks or condensation: mold loves moisture! If there is even a little extra moisture, mold will follow. If the moisture is present long enough, the mold will develop and grow.
  • Warping or peeling paint: Those are other signs of water damage. They don’t mean that water damage is present (it could be sun damage), nor that mold damage is present, just that there is a possibility.

Killing the mold colonies is not enough. The mold is enough to cause allergies, and the spores can still travel through the air ducts. Our technicians remove all visible colonies. Mold spores are too small to see. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), it is impossible to get rid of mold spores; mold spores can even survive in outer space).

Mold colonies can be:

  • Spotted
  • Arranged in lines
  • Furry
  • Bright
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Black
  • Brown
  • White
  • Tan
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Blue
  • Allergenic
  • Toxic
  • Used to make useful drugs (hello, Penicillin!)
  • Useful for food (Roquefort cheese, anyone?)
  • Merely annoying

We have the knowledge and experience to:

  • Find and remove the active colonies
  • Remove the moisture to discourage additional mold growth
  • Clean and disinfect property and belongings, including air vents/HVAC
  • Remove odors

In Honor of Stealth

Mold is stealthy, but not in ways we appreciate. Here is stealth we admire:

Rose Valland (1898-1980)

She was an art curator in Paris during WWII. As a woman, she didn’t have title of curator despite doing the work. For several years, she didn’t even get paid. When the Germans occupied France, she played up the “I’m just a girl” factor, never mentioning her fluency in German. She kept track of the art Nazi officials stole and played a pivotal role in restoring art to rightful owners. She was so successful at hiding her that one faction of the resistance nearly hanged her as a collaborator until friends brought in higher-ups to speak up for her.
