Does Your SW Fort Worth Home Have a Mold Problem?

1/25/2021 (Permalink)

mold on ceiling in a Fort Worth home Have mold? Call SERVPRO of Southwest Fort Worth today!

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise mold removal and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Suppose your home or business has a mold problem. In that case, SERVPRO of Southwest Fort Worth can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Tips to Prepare Your Southwest Fort Worth Home for the Holidays

  • Do not let your leaves stay put! This can cause mildew growth and smother your yard.
  • Keep your firewood stacked away from your home because creepy crawlers love cozy wooden homes! We recommend keeping your woodpiles more than 6 feet away from your homes.
  • Make sure to pest-proof your beautiful plants.
  • Cover and protect all outside faucets and hoses to prevent freezing and cold air from circulating into your homes.
  • Let the sunshine in! Opening your blinds or curtains can help to cut costs for electric bills.
  • BE WEARY OF ICICLES! As beautiful as icicles are to look at, they can cause major damage to your homes. Leaving them can lead to leaks and roof damage.
  • Humidify your air to keep mold away.
  • DO NOT pour hot water on your frozen car windshield. This can cause your windshield to crack! Instead, use an ice scraper and a commercial de-icing spray (rubbing alcohol will work too).

If you have any questions feel free to call your SERVPRO of Southwest Fort Worth at (817)-557-6895! We are here to help!

There's always cause for concern whether you come home to a small water leak or a large water leak. Why should someone worry about a small leak?

It is the water you can't see that causes the most damage! Your SERVPRO professionals understand how disruptive unseen water damage is.

The structure is completely dry so that mold will not spread and give you peace of mind!

  1. Always keep your roof inspected and up-to-date on all repairs.
  2. Document your possessions.
  3. Keep your trees trimmed to prevent them from falling onto your roof.
  4. Keep all gutters and spouts cleared out to make sure they are draining properly.

Mold in Midland, TX

Mold by window seal If you suspect mold in your property, call SERVPRO today!

A pipe bursting through a multi-million dollar home and flooding it while the family was on vacation caused a category 3 water damage that leads to mold. Our team was there for about 3 weeks as we began the mold remediation processes. Our SERVPRO team is certified in water, fire, and mold remediation. We began the process by picking out all the affected rooms' contents and moving them to an unaffected area. Once all of the contents were squared away, our team began the demo. Our team pulled and saved granite countertops, cabinetry, and doors. 

Our crew also saved all of the hardware in the home to be reused. We then began to pull all of the floorings from the affected areas and cut the walls to pull drywall, insulation, and foam that was affected. Our team cleaned up after all the demo was completed and began HEPA-vacuuming all surfaces. Our crew HEPA-vacuumed multiple times to get up all dust, dirt, mold spores, etc., from the surfaces until it was clean. Lastly, our crew sprayed anti-microbial on all surfaces and fogged the home. We passed the mold test and were able to say our work was complete. The homeowner was pleased with our team's hard work and was most impressed we were in and out in under 3 weeks!

Chemical Sponge Cleaning

chemical sponges We use chemical sponges to clean fire and soot residue properly.

Chemical sponges are for the removal of dry dirt, dust, and dry smoke soot residues. SERVPRO of Southwest Fort Worth uses these sponges on all of our fire jobs while cleaning. If our team needs to reach high ceilings, we have poles that hold the chemical sponges up high to reach those areas. This is a perfect way to get soot residue off of walls and ceilings. You never want to wipe fire soot off with a wet sponge. It will only smear more! We use a dry sponge for that very reason. Although, chemical sponges should not be used with protein fires because it will only smear them more. Our technicians are certified in fire restoration, and we have the perfect chemicals for any size job.

How Mold Grows

Mold on wall in Fort Worth Follow these tips!

There are many mold scares in the United States because it can be a huge health issue, mold can destroy a house, and be very hard to get rid of. Mold can be an epidemic for some homeowners because their home is food for mold! The way mold spreads is through spores in the air, which does not always mean it will lead to a mold epidemic in your home. Mold can not grow on dry surfaces. The only way it can spread is with wet surfaces. A simple solution is to keep your home dry, and you won't have a mold problem. Although, it is not always that easy!

Tips to keep your home dry and the humidity low to avoid getting mold: 

  • Before taking a bath, shower, or cooking a meal on the stove, turn on your exhaust fan. This will suck up any moisture getting into the air.
  • After taking a bath or shower, leave your shower curtain open to air out the tub.
  • Make sure to dry any wet areas immediately!
  • Ventilate, ventilate, ventilate!
  • Open some windows if it starts getting humid and burps your house.
  • Monitor your humidity levels indoors.
  • Equip your home with mold-resistant products.
  • Clean and repair roof gutters and try to direct all water away from your home.
