Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Storms, the aftermath. The mold they can bring to your Dallas Home.

9/13/2015 (Permalink)

Common signs of mold growth include musty odors and discolored surfaces.

After the Storm Is Over - Water Damage and Mold in your Dallas home.

Often, mold growth begins anywhere from 2-3 days after a storm causes water damage. Mold is a harmful issue, and it can cause damage to your health, home and the contents within your Dallas home before you even notice that your house has mold growth. The longer a house is exposed to storm water damage and the air spores that spread mold, the more difficult it will be to remove the mold. Common signs of mold growth include musty odors and discolored surfaces. 

People who have allergies, asthma, immunodeficiency disorders, respiratory problems and weakened immune system are especially sensitive to the health effects of mold. Those who are exposed to mold may have symptoms such as:

  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Irritated eyes or skin.
  • Fungal lung infections.
  • Migraine headaches.
  • Nasal congestion.
