Mold in your home
Molds are found in every environment,
and mold spores reproduce rapidly when
moisture is present. An Institute of
Medicine study found excessive dampness
indoors encourages the growth of molds
and other organisms, causing a public
health problem. The EPA advised that the
potential health concerns from molds are
an important reason to prevent moisture
problems leading to mold growth. It is
especially important to clean up existing
indoor mold growth to increase property
appeal and retain its value. If a property
has experienced a water intrusion,
SERVPRO of North Sarasota can
inspect the damage to see whether
moisture has penetrated materials or is
allowing mold growth.

Fire Damage on Local Residence from Burning candle
Fire from forgotten lit candle
When the owner went to sleep that night they forgot to blow out the candle they left on their porch. Not until 6am they were alerted when their fire alarm went off and noticed the fire was ablaze. She immediately called the fire department and SERVPRO of North Sarasota was called to clean up the aftermath. The owner was delighted that we were able to come out there and make it look "Like it never even happened."
Emergency Fire Damage Tips
- Limit movement in the home to prevent further damage.
- Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.

Bracing For A Hurricane
You will get some warning with a tropical storm or hurricane.
As the Storm Approaches
Listen for weather updates on local stations and on NOAA Weather Radio. Stay tuned to the latest information.
REMEMBER: Hurricanes can be unpredictable. There is always potential error in the forecast track from the National Hurricane Center. Don’t focus on the exact forecasted track, listen to local officials. (For more information go to www.noaa.gov or www.weather.gov, click on Tampa Bay area.)
Check your Disaster Supplies. Get any needed items.
Clean and fill bathtubs and sinks before a storm so you’ll have extra clean water.
Turn refrigerator and freezer dials to the coldest settings and avoid opening the doors to help keep perishable food in case of a power outage.
Refill prescriptions. Maintain at least a two-week supply of medication during hurricane season.
Clear your yard of lawn furniture, potted plants, bicycles, trash cans and other potential airborne missiles. Leave the swimming pool filled and super-chlorinated. Cover the filtration system.
Protect your windows and glass doors with plywood or storm shutters. Brace double entry and garage doors at the top and bottom.
If there is a chance flooding could threaten your home, move important items such as electronics, antiques and furniture off the floor.
Fill your car’s gas tank and check oil, water and tires. Gas pumps won’t operate without electricity.
Secure your boat early. Drawbridges will be closed to boat traffic after an evacuation order is issued.
Get cash. Banks and ATMs won’t work without electricity and few stores will be able to accept credit cards or personal checks.
Never sweep or blow yard leaves, pine needles, grass clippings or soil into the street or storm water system. This clogs up the stormwater pipes and prevents water from draining.
If you own a business, follow your Business Continuity Plan. For more information on how to create a Business Continuity Plan, go online to www.ready. gov
Condo in Sarasota has Water Damage
Water Damage caused by A/C Unit
Just when you think that a water loss only happens when floods come or when pipes break, think again. A local condo in Sarasota had a unit on the 11th floor of their building with an A/C unit issue. During the weekend the A/C unit line had ruptured and water from the A/C started leaking into the unit, which started leaking into the units underneath them causing a tremendous amount of damage to other units. Water will follow the path of least resistance.
Luckily, this condo knew to call us and we have been working steadily to extract the water and dry it out using our equipment. Like always, SERVPRO of North Sarasota makes it "Like it never even happened."
Our clients are happy and they are glad we were able to get to the water issue before it got any worse. Call SERVPRO of North Sarasota 941-365-4614 Faster to the Disaster.
Water damage strikes twice at same complex
First photo shows the 1st condo with water damage to their stairwell and the second photo shows water damage the 2nd condo Living room floor.
It was a normal day when SERVPRO of North Sarasota received a call for an emergency water damage at a local condo complex. Our professional techs went out to the scene, remediated the problem, and set out equipment to start the drying process.
After they were finished setting up, they then proceeded onto their next job of the day. While they were out they received a call from the same condo complex about another water damage.
To their surprise the water damage was unrelated to each issue, but they happened to be next door neighbors. So even though any water damage is not something to look forward to, this made it easy for the techs to check up on two jobs at once.
Needless to say, the job was taken care of "Like it never even happened." Call SERVPR of North Sarasota 941-365-4614! 24 Hours-7 days a week.

“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Many restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy. We understand mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of North Sarasota has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.
When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
