  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or the mold may return
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, on clothes and pets, or air conditioning and heating systems
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth
  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent to discourage mold growth

Flooded Kitchen in Concord?

Ice Dispenser Disaster in Concord?

When my refrigerator ice dispenser supply line burst and flooded my hardwood floors, I needed to act fast. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of North Cabarrus County & China Grove, and I’m glad I did. They extracted the water and set up industrial-grade air movers and blowers to dry the area completely, and their fast response and mitigation saved my beautiful floors!

According to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), seventy-three percent of losses involving an ice maker were caused by a supply line failure, and ten percent were linked to improper installation of new refrigerators.

Here are some loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS:

  • Proper installation of the ice maker supply line hose is important to avoiding water damage
  • Ensure the valve connection is secure and check for kinks
  • Inspect the hose every six months
  • If kinks are present replace the hose
  • Leave a three-to-four-inch space between the back of the refrigerator and the wall to prevent the hose from crimping
  • When pulling the refrigerator out for cleaning or service, avoid getting the hose caught beneath the wheel
  • Locate the water shut-off valve and inspect it every six months to make sure the water supply will shut off

“Several weeks ago, our basement flooded due to all the rain we had. I found SERVPRO online and called them early that morning. Within a few hours, they were on the job, cleaning the water out of the carpet that was there. Jose and Sam were professional, courteous, and very efficient. They helped move the furniture that needed to be moved. Once the water was removed, they treated the carpet for mold and mildew. As a result, there was NO smell lingering from the wet carpet. They made my life a whole lot easier, and I am grateful for the service they provide. Should I need help again with the basement, I will definitely call SERVPRO for help.” Nancy in China Grove

    • If the leak does not stop, call the fire department
