Get Mold Damage in the Basement of Your Dallas Area Home Under Control, Today
Learn Ways to Check for Mold Damage in Your Home
Like many other homeowners, you use the basement of your Dallas area property as a staging point for laundry facilities or to store a few extra items. Between going in and out once or twice a week to do laundry, or during the holidays to grab some decorations, you might not spend much time in your basement.
It is highly unlikely that you check the walls, windows, foundation, and ceiling for moisture every time you enter the basement of your Dallas area home. However, these procedures help catch mold damage early. You can learn where to look and what to look for by calling a mold remediation specialist, today.
Even if you had never experienced water problems in your basement before and never had a significant water incident, mold can be a severe issue. Improper ventilation allows humidity to condense on organic or metal surfaces, giving just enough moisture for mold to grow. SERVPRO can help control the relative humidity of your basement and help prevent discoloration, rot, and corrosion that often develops over time.
SERVPRO technicians teach you how your nose can become your handiest tool. As mold spreads through your basement, it gives off a musty, rotten smell that gets more potent as you approach the contaminated area. Moisture on the floor, on windows or under window seals, on your walls, ceiling, or other hard surfaces can also be an early sign of problems to come.
If you have issues with a leaky or flooded basement, SERVPRO technicians can help you determine the cause, applying a variety of services to help keep water away from your home. We can seal cracks in your floor and check for groundwater. An inspection of your home can expose foundation cracks and reveal problems with the elevation of your property. We can improve grading, or install additional drainage, backflow valves, or submersible pumps to help protect your home during an emergency.
Call SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County to review your options and schedule your home’s inspection, today. We can get started on protecting your investment as soon as possible and control possible mold growth with little to no interruptions to your daily routine. (972) 227-0800
