WE CAN HELP

Nutrients (food), suitable place to grow, and moisture are the only three things needed to have mold grow and spread quickly.   These three things are not hard for mold to find.  Mold can be hidden in walls, under carpets, behind ceiling tiles or it can be visible and growing right in front of your eyes.  How do you know if you have mold?

  • Look for visible mold growth (it may look cottony, velvety, rough, or leathery and have different colors like white, gray, brown, black, yellow, or green). Mold often appears as a staining or fuzzy growth on furniture or building materials (walls, ceilings, or anything made of wood or paper). Look for signs of moisture or water damage (water leaks, standing water, water stains, condensation, etc.).
  • Check around air handling units (air conditioners, furnaces) for standing water. Routinely inspect the evaporator coils, liner surfaces, drain pans and drain lines.
  • Search areas where you notice mold odors. If you can smell an earthy or musty odor, you may have a mold problem.
  • If mold-allergic people have some allergy symptoms when in your home, mold might be the problem.

Check out what Brice Pelfrey, CPM, Director of Property Management, Beck Property Company, Inc. said about his mold experience with Complete DKI…..

” I have used several mold remediation companies in the past, and tenants are very rarely completely satisfied once the work is done. Usual tenant complaints are of headaches due to mold still in the facility or call weeks later and say the mold had returned. The last time I had a mold problem, I called Complete DKI. They performed the work afterhours so that regular business would not be interrupted. They performed all the mold remediation, and I have not had a single complaint from the tenant. I was very impressed with how thorough the crew was with the mold removal and I was especially pleased at how quickly Complete DKI finished the job. I highly recommend Complete DKI. ”

Most everyone knows that if they are having construction done that they should hire a licensed contractor.  To become a licensed contractor a state usually imposes specific requirements such as minimum education or work experience. The state may also require that the contractor prove knowledge through examinations.  A business license however is different from a contractors license.  A business license can be obtained with a couple hundred dollars and a visit to local clerk of court. Finding a licensed contractor isn’t difficult, all licensed contractor advertisements—whether it be an ad in the phone book or newspaper, a flyer that shows up at your front door, or the company’s name on the side of a truck— have the contractor’s state license number. You can check the license status online or call  850.487.1395.

Finding a PROFESSIONAL Licensed Contractor is the challenging part.  For most homeowners, the hardest part of any home renovation project isn’t the work itself, it’s finding a reliable contractor to do the job. Installing kitchen cabinets, knocking down a wall or retiling the bathroom is simple compared with the struggle of hiring a professional contractor who will perform at a high level from start to finish, or even just to show up in a timely manner.  There are so many stories about contractors starting a job and just never returning!

Here are some tips for finding a reliable, professional licensed contractor:

  • Ask your insurance agent- if work to be done is a result of a disaster (man made or natural) and will be claimed through insurance, contact your agent for licensed contractors.
  • Ask friends, relatives and co-workers for references. People you know who have done similar projects are your reliable sources.
  • Read online reviewsGoogle, Angie’s List, and the Better Business Bureau are reliable sources.  Click here for Complete DKI’s Google reviews
  • Check their License!- ask to see his/her pocket license, along with a picture I.D. Make sure the person you’re dealing with is the same person on the license.
  • Verify the contractor’s business location and telephone number-A contractor who operates a business from the back of a pickup truck with a cellphone may be difficult to find if a job needs to be fixed after final payment is made.

Closing out my second week with Complete DKI.  I was given a company credit card! Guess they’re going to keep me around for a bit longer.

I spent most of my time this week with Vice President Ashlee Carpentier.  While out one day, making calls, we visited with a property manager.  Complete DKI had done work on one of her properties a few months back.  This was a single family home, built in 1986.  The mother came home from work to find water streaming down the walls and her garage flooded.  Directly above the garage was a bathroom.  The bathroom door was shut  (thank goodness!) but when she opened it water came rushing out into the hallway.  She saw no immediate source for the offensive deluge but assumed a broken pipe caused the flood.  This mom, however, knew exactly what to do first.  I would have had no clue.  I can see myself rapidly becoming a sad sack of tears, adding to the water damage and flooding. I discreetly took notes during her story.  I thought that maybe I’m not the only clueless homeowner out there and I would share with you what to do if you have a broken pipe causing flooding in your house.

Sad sack crying over a broken pipe will not be in the bullets!

  1.   Shut off the water supply to your home —  No idea.  Went looking.  Mine is on the outside wall of house where dryer  vent is and (duh) water line enters house.  Go find yours.  Right now.  I’ll wait here . . . .
  2.   Drain your system – You need to get as much water out of the system as possible to prevent water from spilling through the house and flooding it. Start by turning on all cold water taps and flushing toilets.
  3.   Call Complete DKI–  In less than ONE HOUR, we will be there to find the cause and source of Ark required situation.  Water removal with high-powered hoses will quickly beach your boat.

 

Complete DKI has skilled, licensed technicians with expertise in water damage removal.  Any delay can be detrimental to property.  This includes belongings and house structures.  Our fast response ensures limited loss and speedy remediation.  We have certified mold removal specialists that follow IICRC-S520.  We offer complete restoration and reconstruction services and will transform your damaged, flooded structure to its pre-loss condition, minimizing loss.

Looking forward to next week!  (and using my new credit card!)  (kidding)  (kind of . . .)
