Mold Damage Symptoms in Dallas
SERVPRO Technicians Figure Out the Cause of the Infestation Before Beginning the Remediation Process on Mold in Your Home
Even when residents find evidence of mold, many of them ignore it or try to cover it up. Most people believe that a little mold is not a problem and can be covered up with paint. This belief is wrong and dangerous to the overall safety and integrity of a home’s structure.
After decades of experience in the Dallas area, SERVPRO knows what mold damage can do to a home. Each year, millions are spent to clean out mold growths and to restore or repair damage to structural and personal property. Mold damage is slow to cause a problem, but it also goes unnoticed for months.
By the time homeowners first see or smell it, there is the possibility of contamination which has permanently compromised drywall, paneling and even supporting frames. When this happens, our technicians quickly isolate the affected area. We seal off entry points with plastic sheeting and the air conditioning vents to prevent accidental spread of loose mold spores in the air. A variation of this first step is needed for every home we clean or restore.
Removing affected property is simple, but time-consuming. Our technicians carefully pull out drywall, ceiling tiles where the mold has grown into the items. To prevent a spread of the contamination, we break down panels into a size that can be bagged and taken out of the home. We dispose of it according to Texas State and Federal regulations.
For contaminated structural supports, we install temporary jacks and other support devices at key points. Once they are in place, technicians use claw hammers and crowbars to remove the mold infested wood. We remove and dispose of it in the same manner as the ceiling tiles and other building materials. Depending on the extent of what we remove, replacement usually takes no more than two or three days.
Stopping and removing mold from your home is a process that needs to begin at the first sign of a problem. Regardless of how far the mold may have grown, SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas is here with the experience and training needed to restore your home to its original condition.
