Any Season is Mold Season in Dallas
Prevent the Quick Spread of Mold by Calling SERVPRO
The only thing mold needs to grow is water, making it a potential crisis 365 days out of the year for any homeowner. There are thousands of strains of mold and mildew spores lying dormant that are ready to proliferate in Texas homes. When moisture activates one or more of them, SERVPRO awaits to assist.
Discovering mold damage inside your Dallas home is frustrating and perhaps a little frightening. Susceptible individuals trace health concerns to mold infestations, although only a medical practitioner is authorized to make that connection. It is certain that mold outbreaks are unsightly and spread a very unpleasant musty odor throughout your home. Some strains contribute to rot, endangering the integrity of your home’s structure. When you find the mold, it is imperative that an experienced remediation firm coordinates its removal.
Although it is important to respond immediately to the mold outbreak in your bathroom or kitchen, working to make sure this outbreak is the last is ever more crucial. SERVPRO mold remediation technicians isolate, contain, and remove the current problem using procedures developed by the EPA. These efforts pay off with a clean slate but are not enough in themselves. Failure to make fundamental changes within the areas where this latest outbreak occurred means more mold is certain to follow.
Kitchens and bathrooms struggle with mold outbreaks because of the plumbing concentrations in these areas. Spills, splashes, seepage, and tiny leaks are enough to activate spores. Due diligence with the mop and regular plumbing inspections reduces the possibilities of microbial growth. Sometimes even meticulous housekeeping is not enough, particularly if the area is poorly vented.
SERVPRO technicians inspect the rooms where mold recurs to evaluate the venting system -- or lack of one. We make both short term and more permanent suggestions to reduce the moisture buildup that is the cause of all mold outbreaks. Opening a window during a shower and running a dehumidifier near a working kitchen help for now. Installation of stove top fans that vent to the outside and a similar setup for the bathroom is the real solution, an investment that protects your home and improves indoor air quality.
