Think Before You Clean. - 07/11/12 09:24 PM
The normal thing for a person to do in the aftermath of a fire, flood, or storm damage in the home or business is to rush right back into the space, try to assess the damage, and begin the clean up process. This may not, however, be the best plan of action. It may result in some serious consequences to the property owner’s health, the amount of money he or she spends for restoration, and the success of the project. Many people believe that as soon as the fire department or emergency workers have left it (1 comments)
Be Prepared for Smoke and Soot in Your Home - 07/09/12 11:46 AM
Having a fire in your home is one of the most disturbing, unsettling things that can happen to a homeowner. After double checking to be sure everyone is safe and sound, there is the daunting task of dealing with the aftereffects of the fire—the destruction, smell, smoke, and general mess. The smoke and soot must be removed before cleaning and deodorizing can begin. It will usually save time and money to consult an expert in fire restoration and remediation after it’s safe to reenter. New technology allows professionals to reclaim items you may have felt were (2 comments)
Clean Air Inside Your Home. - 07/08/12 06:20 PM
People in the United States today are becoming more and more aware of the necessity of recycling, “going green,” and doing whatever is necessary to protect and purify our environment, so one habitat we should certainly not overlook is the area within our own homes. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has stated that the air inside our homes is dirtier than the air outside in smog-filled cities. What is in the air that is causing it to be so dangerous? Bacteria, toxins, and allergens are the primary culprits, but you may be surprised how many are (1 comments)
Could Mold Really Be the Problem? - 07/06/12 10:42 AM
On the internet you can read about children, adults, and even pets that have suffered, and some eventually died from exposure to toxic mold in their homes, schools, workplaces, etc. As I thought about this, I hoped that the people who read this article would take the warnings seriously before heartbreaking predicaments occur that could cause them to lose their health or other truly important things. Although some of the stories I’ve read seem almost too unlikely to believe, there are many that cannot be discounted. The danger from mold is a reality, and one that is (0 comments)
Newlywed New Home Blues - 07/02/12 08:29 PM
Last year I attended the beautiful wedding of the daughter of one of my friends. Everything appeared to be idyllic. After the honeymoon, the couple returned to the suburbs of a large metropolitan city where they had purchased a new home. It was a lovely two-story home, and since they both had wonderful jobs, they were able to decorate it in a charming, comfortable way which suited their taste perfectly. My friend fairly beamed when she spoke of them, and it seemed as if their marriage had almost a fairy tale beginning. As a special surprise (1 comments)
Water damage that lingers past the clean up - 07/01/12 09:25 AM
Many people live in homes where water damage has taken place. As home or property owners, we first think of taking care of the cause of the problem, and then most of us work on cosmetic issues like removing debris or replacing walls or painting. If you are a do-it-yourself type of person, you probably count yourself lucky if you feel you can do the job yourself. Whether you do the job yourself or call someone else in to help, however, your primary concern is usually money, especially in these difficult economic times. If you own commercial or (0 comments)
Abnormal allergy symptoms could be mold related! - 07/01/12 09:24 AM
Recently a friend of mine said that she had been diagnosed by her allergist with sensitivities to medicine and several other severe allergic reactions. She responded very well to homeopathic and herbal medicines but found it most important to constantly guard against any source of toxins. Because of this, she requested immediate testing for mold in her home by a professional mold remediation specialist. When considering a physician for a specific issue like this, it’s also a good idea to consider the particular specialty of the doctor. Unless your allergist has training specifically in the areas (2 comments)
