When Pets Cause Mold Damage to Your Dallas Home, Remediation Stops Microbial Activity
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate the Mold Infestation in Your Home as Well as Offer Tips to Help Prevent a Recurrence
People often think of their pets as special members of the family in Dallas, and their owners go to great lengths to keep them happy and healthy. Making sure that they have fresh water and a decent supply of food for the day before heading out to work quickly becomes a part of the morning routine after a new pet joins a household.
Your residence can end up with mold damage in Dallas when a new puppy or kitten knocks over their water bowl repeatedly or makes other messes in corners and under furniture. The moisture from these spills can trigger microbial growth cycles and lead to a proliferation of mold and mildew in your home.
The IICRC-certified technicians at SERVPRO understand you want your home restored to a safe and healthy state, and we can help you achieve and maintain this goal. Protecting your family's health from the effects of mold can help prevent existing health conditions from becoming worse.
Remediation also helps prevent decay of the materials and belongings in your residence which microbes cause. They spread damage wherever they end up in your home. In fact, before technicians from SERVPRO begin working on the remediation of your pet's area, we contain the area with thick plastic sheeting and directed air flows so we can use negative air pressure to more efficiently contain the mold's spores.
Microbes leave stains behind on porous objects, from soft plastics and rubber items to wood to clothing. Many of the items near your pet's food and water bowls can exhibit these signs. We remove mold growth from your home and your possessions so the microbial population cannot spread. Stains on many, but not all, items, can often come off with proper treatment.
We provide you with an inventory list of those items that we cannot restore fully and discuss with you the options regarding their replacement. Some of your belongings and household furnishings may fare better with one of our partners who specialize in restorative work, especially in situations involving old books, electronics, and art pieces.
While we never recommend getting rid of a pet, we can offer suggestions on techniques that can help prevent mold damage from becoming a problem again inside your home. SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County wants to help residents in Seagoville, Hutchins, and Lancaster by remediating their home to a preloss state and helping ensure that microbial populations remain under control in the future. Call us at (972) 227-0800, so we can get started on restoring your home.
