Mold can be a nag if not dealt with appropriately.

Steps For Effective Remediation Of Mold Damage In Dallas

Mold falls into different categories mostly distinguished by their colors. If you encounter black colonies, it is probably Aspergillus or Cladosporium variety, while a yellowish appearance may indicate Serpula lacrymans variety. Despite the color differences, the effect is most likely the same. Leaving the colonies to develop undisturbed causes problems with air quality, and can even lead to structural damage. Because limited natural light and higher than usual moisture levels favor mold growth, most infestations are likely to occur in dark, hard-to-reach sections of your Dallas property.

Any effort to deal with mold damage in Dallas must focus on the factors that promote growth. This is because mold spores are omnipresent, and it is not possible to eliminate them through chemical action or otherwise. If remediation only involves cleaning the affected areas, the problem keeps recurring after short durations. Our professional restoration service starts with an inspection of the property to establish if there is a general moisture problem fueling growth. Depending on what we find out, we can take appropriative corrective measures.

Among the factors that contribute to mold development, it is probably only moisture that can be controlled. Because mold thrives on all kinds of organic food sources, including dust, it is not possible to eliminate such food sources. Our SERVPRO team focuses on fast drying of the affected parts of the structure. We achieve this by extracting any standing water and minimizing moisture in the air through dehumidification.

Cleaning any residue of the mold colonies is essential especially to restore the aesthetic appeal of the affected surfaces. Using professional products at this stage helps guarantee better results. Our SERVPRO technicians use EPA-registered, broad-spectrum disinfectants on all the affected surfaces because they only work on microbes through physical contact. We also allow correct dwell time and maintain the right pH and temperature levels throughout the process for good results.

Mold can be a nag if not dealt with appropriately. Call SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County to assist. You can reach us 24/7 at (972) 227-0800.
