Mold can be seen growing on a water stain on a ceiling. We mitigate and remediate mold damage in Macomb County.

I came to work on Monday to find the ceiling of my office contained a nasty, bloated water stain covered in mold! Yuck! Our insurance adjuster told us to call SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores.  They sent a team out right away who was able to locate the source of the water leak and repair it to stop the water leak and damage. After that, they worked quickly and systematically to contain the mold and began the mitigation and remediation process. Now, you would never know there was a mold problem in my office!

Here is some information on understanding mold from our website:

Understanding Mold

  • 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

SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores has been mitigating and restoring fire-damaged homes in Eastpointe for years and cooking fires continue to be the top reason for home fires. Here are some fire safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to keep you safe while cooking: 

“Cook with Caution”

  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling, grilling, or broiling food.
  • If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove.
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking
  • Use a timer to remind you that you are cooking
  • Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, or curtains — away from your stovetop.

If you have a small (grease) cooking fire and decide to fight the fire...

  • On the stovetop, smother the flames by sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the burner. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
  • For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed

  • Turn off supply valves when not in use
  • Consider installing a lever-type valve that is easy to operate between uses
  • Do not operate the washing machine while the home is unoccupied
  • Leave a three-to-four-inch gap between the back of the washing machine and the wall to avoid kinking the hose near the valve connection
  • Inspect the water supply line hoses every six months
  • Ensure that the connection to the valve is secure, but avoid over-tightening
  • Hand tighten the connection first, then tighten an additional two-thirds of a turn using pliers
  • Check the hoses for cracks, kinks, or blisters, which are most commonly found near the hose connection

Gas Station Robbery in Eastpointe?

5/17/2021 (Permalink)

A gas station is shown during a sunny day. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores are trusted leaders in crime scene and accident cleanup and restoration.

Crime Scene Cleanup for Eastpointe.

The guy must have been desperate. He came in with what looked like a gun underneath his sweater and told my employee at the cash register to empty the register. Unbeknownst to the robber, there was an off-duty policeman in the back of the store. He came up and tackled the robber down to the ground before the robber knew what hit him! No one was badly injured, but there was a lot of blood and items on the floor that got knocked off over during the altercation. The police came out and interviewed my employee, arrested the robber, and completed their investigation. When they were through, I closed the store down, and I called SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores.

The SERVPRO team arrived quickly and began the cleanup and restoration process immediately. They quickly and efficiently removed the blood and broken glass and debris and decontaminated the store. In a short time, the store was reopened, “Like it never even happened.”
