As long as the house is empty and no one will need water inside or out side the house (like for wartering the lawn) you should be fine. It only takes a second and could possibly save you from returning home to a nightmare. If you have any questions please call us at (808)235-5015 we would love to assist you in any way that we can! We provide free inspections and free estimates and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Mold Growth in your Home

Mold Remediation Mold Growth in your Home Moldy wall in Kitchen Pantry

Indoor mold is a common concern in Hawaii as Hawaii's climate is a perfect environment for mold.  Over growth of indoor mold can occur for many reasons, the most typical setting we find an over growth of mold is in homes that have been unoccupied for a length of time.  The main reason for this is because of the lack of air movement in the home. When a home or business owner’s leave their property it is usually left lock up, window closed tight, and AC turned off. With our humid and moderate temperatures here in Hawaii a home without air movement can be a mold haven, a perfect place for it to grow undisturbed.

 Mold is present in almost every environment, indoor and outdoor. It isn't of much concern until the spore count ie, how much mold is present, reaches an unhealthy level. This is when health issues can arise. Mold is not only a health concern but it can also cause rot to occur on the surface it is growing on. This can weaken framing or cabinetry and decay sheet rock and flooring.

 If you find your home is in need of help due to an over growth of mold don't hesitate to call on SERVPRO of Kailua North/ Laie we are always here to help.

Commercial The risks of living in a Condo. Roof damage caused from water leak in above unit.

When you live in a condo unfortunately that means we are susceptible to all kinds of mishaps. Anything can happen in the condo above you.  Anything can happen even in the condo next to you.  They could accidentally leave a faucet on, have plumbing issues, have a water heater or appliance leak.  Or even a very slow leak that has gone undetected for long periods of time. This consequently may cause potential damage to the unit below.  This can also lead to mold and bacteria growth.  In these cases be sure you know who to call right away to prevent further damage. Our number is (808)235-5015.  We are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  No job is too big or too small, we do it all!

Appliance Malfunction and Leaks are far more Common than we Think.

Commercial Appliance Malfunction and Leaks are far more Common than we Think. Water damage to Ceiling Caused by a Dishwasher Malfunction Upstairs.

Appliance malfunctions are one of the most common reasons water damage affects today’s homes. A slight breach in the gasket on a washer or a small leak in the pipes leading to an automatic ice maker can slowly damage the walls or the floors of your Kailua home in hidden areas. SERVPRO technicians receive training to locate and restore the many paths water takes to intrude and damage structures of your home. 
 
Our crew locates the leak and arranges for repair and then gets to work on the damage done by the water. As we work through the areas saturated we look for mold growth, which is common when water leaks over time. If found, we add mold remediation to the agenda; our technicians are trained in the EPA mold abatement protocols. 
 
SERVPRO crews extract any visible water and set up air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce moisture in the air and fixtures. We recommend you run your AC units as well to lower humidity. The team monitors moisture levels, and we remove our equipment only when the proper levels are attained.
