It's all around us! What is Mold?

5/1/2023 (Permalink)


First, it’s important to understand what mold is not. It’s not something that can be completely removed from your living space because it’s part of nature. Mold is present everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, and can enter your home in many ways: through doors, windows, HVAC systems-even on your pet, or your clothing. Once these microscopic spores are exposed to moisture, they thrive and can grow into a real problem in a few short days. You may start to notice a strong, musty odor, and that’s the time to act. Before mold remediation can begin, you need to find and repair the water source of the mold, otherwise, it could return. You can help control the growth of mold indoors by keeping the humidity in the 30%-50% range.

WHAT TO DO? Attempt to determine the water source and take appropriate action to stop the source to prevent further mold problems Restrict access to the area with mold for pets, kids, and yourself. W

WHAT NOT TO DO Don’t touch or disturb the mold. Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold. Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.

Call SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield @ 270-443-4555 to get professional advice anytime you suspect mold in your home or business.

Why Choose SERVPRO for Water Damage?

5/1/2023 (Permalink)

We are Highly Trained Restoration Specialists Our professionals specialize in residential water damage restoration, with training focused on restoring salvageable items, and accelerating drying time while documenting the entire restoration process.

The drying method involves equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers that can be noisy. Homeowners will sometimes turn off the equipment at night. Please do not turn off the drying equipment!

Here's why:

Turning off the Drying Equipment Allows Humidity to Rise-

Water damage equipment provides a constant airflow throughout an air-tight space. If you open a window, you negate the machines' ability to work. You also allow moisture from the outside to enter the building.

Feeling the Walls Isn't a Good Indicator of Moisture-

Did you touch the walls to see if they were wet? You might think they're dry far before they really are. Fingers and hands aren't good indicators of moisture levels, especially if water is trapped behind surfaces, which it usually is.

It Will Cost You More, in the Long Run, to Turn off the Machines-

Worried that the cost to run the water damage equipment is sending your utility bills sky high? Actually, it could be much costlier to keep turning them off.

Check with your insurance company too. Your coverage may allow them to pay for a hotel room for a short period.

Summer Time is Grilling Time in Paducah & Mayfield Kentucky

10/1/2022 (Permalink)

We are in the grasp of an unprecedented heat wave with the heat index well above 100!  You might be thinking it is too hot to be outside grilling.  However, it might be a good idea. 

An electric company radio Ad suggested grilling as a way to reduce your energy usage and avoid using the stove or oven. The heat from the oven can increase the temperature in the kitchen by 10 degrees!  So, your air conditioner goes into overtime to keep up. 

Here are a few safety tips on grilling.

For gas/propane grills:

  • Check the gas tank for leaks before using.
  • Open the lid on all gas grills before lighting the grill.

For charcoal grills:

  • Use only charcoal starter fluid to start the fire but never add it or any flammable liquids to a fire that is already burining.
  • Cool coals completely before you dispose of them in a metal container.
  • Place grill well away from house and deck railings.  Don't place under eaves or branches.
  • Never leave the grill unattended when in use.

Be safe and enjoy the summer grilling activity!

SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield is available 24/7 for FIRE, WATER, & MOLD cleanup & restoration.

Steps in Our Commercial Construction Process


1. Approvals

Before starting any commercial construction project, it's important to do your homework, especially regarding required approvals, securing any that you may need prior to the project. If your project is the result of an insurance claim, you will need to verify coverage, such as deductible amounts and replacement costs.

2. Estimates and Finalizing Estimates

We will provide a copy of your estimate as an attachment to your Construction Work Authorization.


1. Scheduling Tradesmen

Arranging access to your business and communicating scheduling constraints, for both us and the tradesmen, is critical to an effectively run construction project.

2. Weekly Communication

We will contact you at least weekly during the construction phase to provide information on the status of your project.


1. Construction Standards

If issues are indentified quickly as the repairs are made during the project, the walk-through should be a simple confirmation of the work performed and final sign-off.


Once all work has been completed you will be asked to sign this document acknowledging that the work is complete and meets industry standards.


At the end of the project if there are deemed to be any items that are incomplete (e.g. back order light fixtures or minor completion items), you may withhold an amount equal to 150% of the reasonable value of those items from the final payment to us. This payment will be made to us upon completion of those items.
