Spending Less Money on Your Home in the Long Run

Routine Maintenance to Save You Money

Your homes’ maintenance cost can add up to a considerable sum over time. The best way to keep maintenance costs low for any structural system, or appliance is to handle the issues sooner rather than later, as well as anticipate potential problems. Most home systems, such as HVAC or plumbing, can be maintained for years without major incident, as long as homeowners schedule routine upkeep. Here are the three best ways to keep service costs low and maximize the lifespan of every system in your home.

  1. Take Care of Minor Fixes-

It’s a good idea to start small when it comes to maintenance. Addressing issues that seem minor when they arise can help to prevent serious issues from developing down the road. In general, scheduled or preventative maintenance is more affordable than emergency repairs in terms of the cost of parts, labor and incidentals.

  1. Perform Preventative Maintenance-

Homeowners should schedule periodic inspections of the structural systems, appliances and other aspects of a residence. Inspections may draw attention to issues that require maintenance. Cleaning components and getting the parts necessary to prevent problems from occurring down the line tends to have a lower maintenance cost than fixing ruined parts and restoring damage it can create.

  1. Get The Job Done Right-

It is important to have trained professionals install, service and repair home appliances and systems such as HVAC and plumbing. Maintaining high management standards may cost a little more per job, but the risk of experiencing major problems that prove to be very costly is significantly reduced. Bonded and insured professionals also typically guarantee their work.

The longer a problem persists, the more severe it may become and the higher the maintenance cost will become. When it comes to structural systems and appliances at a home in Manhattan, regularly scheduled inspections, maintenance, preventative measures and timely repairs can help homeowners avoid costly emergency fixes for major problems that can cause major damage.

Mold In the Winter Time

3/25/2022 (Permalink)

Mold In the Winter time?

There is a common misconception that mold is a seasonal problem. Many homeowners think mold issues disappear when the weather is cold. While temperature does affect the way mold grows, it’s a year-round problem for New Yorkers. It’s important to be aware of how and where mold can grow in your home, even during the winter months. Keep reading to learn the answers to the most-asked winter mold questions our technicians are asked.

Does mold grow in cold temperatures?

YES! Mold needs three things to grow: moisture, adequate food source, and the correct temperature. But contrary to what many people think, mold can grow in cold temperatures.

Different types of molds thrive under different conditions, and some molds are more likely to grow in the winter months than others. Unfortunately this comes from the temperature conditions we create ourselves. Mold growth can occur when we heat our homes to stay warm...

So, does mold die in the winter?

Cold weather will not kill mold. Mold spores are opportunistic, they wait for the right conditions and then begin to spread. Even extreme temperatures do not kill mold spores, but they can deactivate them for a period of time.They become dormant and will begin to multiply and grow again as soon as the temperature rises back to ideal. Controlling the temperature alone will not solve your mold problems if you have them. The key to removing mold from your home and keeping it from reoccurring is to control humidity levels and properly treat it at the source. 

Mold growth on windows during the winter?

The fall and winter months bring precipitation and dew onto surfaces in our homes that can begin to collect  moisture. Places like your window panes, are ideal for mold to expand and grow as moisture collects and sun shines through. When the temperature drops during the winter, the warm air in your home comes into contact with the cool glass of your window panes, depositing more water vapor and leading to an increase in moisture buildup around your windows. That’s why sometimes mold tends to collect around windows during the colder months.

How do you prevent mold from growing in the winter?

Here’s what you can do in your home to prevent mold from growing and spreading during the winter months::

  • Keep humidity below 50% throughout your home at all times. 
  • Inspect pipes and fix plumbing leaks as soon as possible to prevent water from collecting.
  • Use mold-killing cleaners in bathrooms and areas of your kitchen where moisture collects.
  • Avoid having carpets or rugs near windows, sinks, or other places that can become wet.
  • Inspect your air ducts and change filters on your furnace regularly.
  • Always use a ventilation fan during showers or baths to prevent moisture buildup.
  • Clean your gutters often to prevent moisture from building up on collected debris.
  • Get rid of old recycled material, newspapers, and any upholstery or fabric that has been exposed to moisture.
  • Call a Professional cleaning crew like SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan

SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan  is prepared and certified to handle any mold issues you may be facing this Winter. Don't waste another day with mold in your home. Call us for a free consultation at (212)-768-9400

Who to Call When Winter Weather Hits

SERVPRO for your winter disaster-

Winter has arrived and the freezing temperatures, snowy days, and ice storms have come with it. This cold weather, snow, and ice storms can cause major damage to your home or business property. When these types of disasters strike, immediate action is necessary to prevent additional damage to your property. SERVPRO has the experience, expertise, and the resources to remediate damage caused by winter weather. Below are a couple of the common damages we deal with during the winter. 

Frozen Pipes?

The freezing tempurtues accompanied by the weather can cause your pipes to freeze and burst. In general, your pipes are more likely to freeze below 20 degrees Fahrenheit but regardless you should be careful once it drops below freezing. The resulting damage can be very destructive. Outdoor pipes or pipes in an unheated areas will freeze more easily if they are not properly insulated. We recommend shutting these off if possible or insulting them if needed. SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan can quickly and safely repair water damage caused by frozen pipes.

Roof Damages?

Snow and ice can create the environment for significant damage to occur to your gutters or roof, and many times both of them together. The additional weight created by the dense snow and layers of ice that build up can cause a roof to collapse if not taken care of properly. When there’s a cold snap, the melted ice drips water that can get into cracks and small spaces. When this occurs it eventually expands once it has frozen, causing larger cracks to be created and even more damage. The repetition of this cycle can create major damage you should be watching our for and examining before each winter season.

Owner, Robert Citrangola II Owner, Robert Citrangola II

At SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan, we are stepping up to ensure the safety of every member of our community. “Crews are working in the field and administrative staff are working from home everyday. We are doing the most we can right now to help those in need,” said Robert Citrangola, owner of SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan. Robert has been following SERVPRO for years and has owned his own franchise for a decade. He gave us firsthand accounts on how it was being on the front lines in one of the hardest hit cities, New York City. While each job brings its own anxieties, we are grateful to be able to help in this fight that is affecting our home and family. We will be there from the start of this to the end of this.

Robert has found that keeping connected to the community and to his team is vital during this time. He wants to ensure that his team is prepared and ready to be fully beneficial to the city. Coronavirus has continued to rise in New York City, but as people continue to venture out it is imperative that we continue to serve our community by keeping New York City clean.

“As a leading clean-up force in this, we have to treat each job with extra attention and care. This is a difficult time for people, so we need to always remember to treat our clients with a new sense of understanding. This is imperative to keeping our business strong. We also want to keep our employees safe, so we ensure that all field employees are in full PPE wear and are protected. New York City and State have been hit hard, but with the contribution of other Franchises it has helped flatten the curve. If we continue to work together, we will all come out of this better.”

Our employees make all of this possible. We are ensuring the safety of our employees by providing full PPE gear for any job site. Citrangola spoke on the importance of full PPE and the peace of mind it provides for employees in the field. “We are following all the CDC and Corporate guidelines to keep our employees protected,” said Robert. His team is fully backed by their franchise and corporation in what they are trying to achieve within the city.

As a whole SERVPRO is providing services to military, first responders, and healthcare workers. We believe that ensuring the safety of those on the front lines of this is essential to creating community. We have been able to provide lunches for the military that has come to serve New York City during our time of need. We know how far some extra support can go because we have been on the other side of this. We are proud to be able to serve our city everyday and our ability to connect with others all over the country to ensure our customers' needs are being met. 

We hope to continue to be a first response to anything that comes your way. From clean-ups to floods, SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan will be there to help 24/7, 365 days a year.

If your technician decides to introduce chemicals, you will be informed on the effects and contents of the product.

We’ve compiled some of our most used terms and chemicals to help you ensure the safety of your clients, tenants, and employees.

Antimicrobial Agents: 

Are any chemicals that prevent the spread of microorganisms through water or on damp surfaces and materials. If we believe that black or gray water has contaminated the space, we will use antimicrobial agents to clear out any toxic matter.

Disinfectants:

We use a hospital-grade disinfectant that is healthy and safe. The disinfectant will kill 99% of all encountered organisms. This will leave your surfaces almost completely sterile. Chemicals such as alcohol, chlorine, or formaldehyde may be used to ensure all surfaces are clear of bacteria.

Sanitizers: 

When using a sanitizer our aim is to lower the amount of microbes to a level that is safe for ‘public use.’ Sanitizers are usually not used alone because they are not strong enough to eradicate all of the bacteria. We don’t want to risk the chance of bacteria returning, so we may combine sanitizers with other cleaning agents.

Sterilants 

Sterilants eradicate fungi spores and are a very effective chemical. Sterilants prevent the spread of mold in water damaged areas. This chemical cannot be applied to every surface, so we are careful with what we use them on.

Collaboration and Cooperation Will Keep You Safe 

We promise to explain the restoration process to you to ensure your safety and peace of mind. We are experts in our field and need your cooperation to do what we do best. We are here to serve you 24/7 365 days a year.
