How to Prevent Mold Growth
We breathe in mold spores and fragments every day, indoors and outdoors. Usually these exposures do not present a health risk. However, people can be exposed to large amounts of mold, particularly indoors.
It is impossible to get rid of all mold spores indoors; some spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust. However we can reduce the amount of spores in our homes by controlling mold growth.
- Identify moisture problem areas in your home and correct them
- Dry wet areas immediately
- Prevent moisture buildup with proper ventilation
- Monitor humidity indoors
- Direct rainwater away from your home
- Clean and repair roof gutters
Remember if you clean up the mold but don't address the water or moisture problem, then most likely, the mold problem will come back.
SERVPRO of Bartlesville/Miami offers indoor air quality sampling for mold. Call us today for an appointment at 918-766-0220.

How to Stay Safe in a Severe Storm
Where you and your family shelter during a storm is a crucial factor in staying safe. Ideally your home already has at least one location to shelter at, so it's time to focus on safeguarding your family while it's in full force. The safest place to be is indoors but if you are outdoors during a severe storm, AVOID exterior walls and get to shelter as soon as it is safe to do so.
Other simple things you can do in a storm situation are:
- Stay clear of windows, doors and openings such as fireplaces.
- Take shelter in your designated room, a bathroom or basement is recommended and protect your head with a cushion or mattress. If possible, crouch beneath heavy furniture.
- Continue to tune in to local weather broadcasts for updates and advice.

Oklahoma Schools Reopening During COVID-19 Pandemic
Here are four things you can start doing now to set your students up for success, according to the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and Mission Healthy Kids.
- Create a regular sleep schedule.
In the weeks leading up to a new school year, try moving up your child's bedtime by just a couple minutes a day. Remember children ages 6 to 11 should get between 10 and 11 hours of sleep each night, while teens should get at least nine. Make sure your kid's room is dark, quiet, and comfortable. Try to avoid strenuous activity and screen time for at least an hour before bed.
- Get your kid's nutrition on track.
Cut the cereal and breakfast bars. Swap them instead for nutritionally-dense foods like eggs, fresh fruit, nut butters, whole grain breads, yogurt, and milk. Those foods will fuel your child's body and help them feel full longer. Now is also the time to make a list of some healthy lunch and snack ideas.
- Sit down with your child and plan.
Talk in advance about grades, homework, reading time, and after-school activities. Discuss some of the positives a new school year can bring, such as seeing old friends and making new ones. Develop a general schedule, too. With younger kids, you can even walk through what their daily routing might look like.
- Stay safe during COVID-19 Pandemic
During trying times like this worldwide pandemic, your child's safety should be the top priority. Everyday remind your child to socially distance and wear the proper facial coverings to ensure their safety. Also, have them bring hand sanitizer to wash their hands throughout the school day to keep them from infecting themselves and others.
The bottom line: Try to remember what life was like in their shoes. A new school year can be scary and cause anxiety. Let them know those feelings are okay. Plus, making sure they're getting enough sleep, eating well, and planning now may help your whole family ease that stress.
