Taking Care of Mold Damage in Dallas Basements

8/12/2018 (Permalink)

Don't panic if you see mold in your basement. Contact SERVPRO and we will remediate the damage as well as offer prevention tips.

Our SERVPRO Technicians Find the Cause of the Mold Colony Spreading Through Your Basement

When mold damage develops in a Dallas home's basement, it creates some additional problems and complications for SERVPRO teams working to eliminate the fungus. Basements consistently rank among the most typical places we find mold growth in local residential builds, as their warm, dark, and sometimes humid environments represent an excellent place for mold to grow and thrive without many disturbances. If you identify signs of mold growth in your home's basement, here are some of the things you can expect to see in the coming weeks.

A Fast Response from SERVPRO
We never take calls of mold damage in Dallas homes lightly. While it is true that mold grows slowly and silently, we have observed through our decades of service that prompt action is critical to keep costs low and damage to a minimum. Fungal colonies grow at an exponential rate, meaning that every passing day without action allows the colony to grow larger at a faster rate. Within hours of your first call to us, we get inspectors and technicians on-scene to control the problem and identify our approach throughout the remediation process.

Localized Quarantines
While not often seen for minor damage, significant mold growth often requires quarantining, no matter what part of the home it develops in. Basements develop the kind of massive mold problems that require quarantines more often than other areas of the home but are also easier to block off and keep under control. Unless the fungus is particularly widespread across the structure, you should see minimal, localized quarantining if any is required.

Preventative Actions
Where mold grew once, it can grow again, unless action is taken to prevent it. SERVPRO can assist with the application of mold-resistant paints and materials in the areas of growth if you wish to safeguard your home against future problems. These actions may represent an extra day or two of work, depending on the size of the job, but can prove critical to keeping your home safe for years to come.

SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County provides expert mold damage remediation and prevention services to homeowners across the local area. If you find signs of mold growth in your home, contact us immediately at (972) 227-0800.
