Proper Remediation Of Mold Damage In Dallas Boosts Property Value

Mold is associated with some health problems. However, its biggest impact is diminishing property value if not properly remediated. Even if you aren't planning to sell your Dallas home immediately, some of the effects caused by mold might linger long enough to affect the future value of your property. Also, who wants mold to be the distinguishing feature of their property?

Mold damage in Dallas indicates an underlying moisture issue unless a one-off event such as flooding causes it. Proper remediation should start with fixing the source of the moisture. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect your premises thoroughly including hidden spaces such as wall cavities to identify all moisture sources. If the property floods, any wetness left in these hidden spaces can keep causing problems even when there is no other moisture source. In such cases, drying the dampness ensures positive results over a longer term.

Removing the moisture prevents new mold from developing. However, in the affected areas, it is necessary to clean all the visible effects of the infestation. Various cleaning actions are necessary to achieve a positive outcome. Our SERVPRO team first HEPA vacuums the affected areas to get rid of loose mold fragments. Other cleaning actions such as sanding, wire brushing, and damp wiping may follow based on how extensive the infestation is. After this, you can refinish the affected areas confident that there are no underlying issues.

Like other forms of fungi, mold causes structural problems when left unchecked for too long. Since wood is an excellent source of organic food for the mold, with time any infested areas are broken down and damaged. Where structural integrity is in question, the best option is the removal of the affected wood because even elimination of the infestation cannot restore the strength of the structure. When our SERVPRO technicians inspect your property, we identify any severely damaged areas.

The value of your property should not diminish because of mold issues. Call SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887. We are available 24/7.
