Here to help Technician handing a clean and restore building to the business owner

SERVPRO of Houston Heights is a certified IICRC,

We only follow the standards set by the IICRC.

this can help influence a client who is unsure about using their insurance policy after a particular loss.

by following IICRC standards we ensure that all work performed follows these guidelines, as most insurance companies only work with providers who follow these guidelines and are a certified firm. 

The IICRC has 3 categories of water in which most decisions are made in each loss.

category 1-

Clean water source from a clean water supply line, for example a overflown sink or a burst water supply line from a refrigerator.

Category 2-

Water that came from a clean water source but has traveled through building materials and has become contaminated.

Category 3- 

Water that does not come from a clean water source for example a flood or a toilet back up, typically this means all materials that were affected by this water needs to be removed with the exception of core building materials like framing, after removing all contaminated materials, cleaning and disinfecting needs to occur before the drying equipment is placed.

Mold Remediation

Here to help Here to help

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

When a home suffers a water damage event, a mold infestation can quickly arise and spread throughout a home in 48-72 hours. Because mold can produce allergens and irritants, you will want a professional that has training and experience to properly resolve the mold infestation. If you suspect that your Houston Heights home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Houston Heights can inspect, assess and remediate your property.

Learn more about mold and what to do until help arrives by reviewing these mold damage tips.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and 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 can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
