Spontaneous Combustion

Spontaneous combustion, phenomenon in which a substance unexpectedly bursts into flame without apparent cause. In ordinary combustion, a substance is deliberately heated to its ignition point to make it burn. Many substances undergo a slow oxidation that, like the rapid oxidation of burning, releases heat. If the heat so released cannot escape the substance, the temperature of the substance rises until ignition takes place. Spontaneous combustion often occurs in piles of oily rags, green hay, leaves, or coal; it can constitute a serious fire hazard.

Cause and Ignition

  1. A substance with a relatively low ignition temperature (hay, straw, peat, etc.) begins to release heat. This may occur in several ways, usually oxidation by a little moisture and air, bacterial fermentation generates heat.
  2. The heat is unable to escape (hay, straw, peat, etc. are good thermal insulators), and the temperature of the material rises.
  3. The temperature of the material rises above its ignition point (even though much of the bacteria are destroyed by ignition temperatures).
  4. Combustion begins if sufficient oxidizer, such as oxygen, and fuel are present to maintain the reaction into thermal run-away.

How Do I Get Rid Of Mold?

 It is impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores indoors; some mold spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust.  The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present.  Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling moisture indoors.  If there is mold growth in your home, you must clean up the mold and fix the water problem.  If you clean up the mold, but don’t fix the water problem, then, most likely, the mold problem will come back.

Water Damage & Drying Wet Wood Floors

Water damaged hardwood flooring can be indentified by cupping, warping, discoloration and flaking of the surface. Water damaged wood floors are one of the most difficult materials we dry. Besides being dense and coated with vapor barriers, they can also reach a “point of no return” if the water damage is not promptly addressed. In the water damage restoration industry, damaged wood flooring is one of the most challenging materials to dry. Floodco LLC has the experience, training and moisture testing instrumentation to inspect, evaluate and recommend the best restoration options for your wood flooring system.

Time is Not on Your Side
When it comes to water damage and wood flooring, time is definitley NOT on your side. Wood plank flooring can sustain permanent structural damage as well as mold growth between the finish floor and subfloor. Mitigation decisions should be made promptly. I urge people to do their best to prequalify the wood flooring “expert” that will help them determine what actions, if any, should be taken. This point can’t be stressed enough. You don’t want to needlessly tear out a perfectly good wood floor. However, the more floors I dry, the more careful I am to identify all the potential challenges. In the end, I want what is best for my client, even if that means I have to pass on a job.
