SERVPRO’s Fast Response can Help Prevent Mold Infestation

It doesn’t take much for a rug to get wet.  In rare instances the culprit can be extreme weather or run-off after a storm, more often the cause is a broken pipe or appliance is enough to thoroughly soak a carpet through.  Once this does happen there is a genuine concern that you might be facing mold growth in the near future.  Mold is a fungus that thrives off of moisture and an organic food source for sustenance.  Carpet fibers are an excellent food source for mold, once fungus gets into your carpet, it is difficult to get it out again.

On arrival, we begin by extracting as much water from your carpet as possible.  We use specialized tools and make several passes over the affected area because we understand that thorough extraction is key to the success of the drying process.

Once extraction is complete, our next step is to dry your carpet.  SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant Co. will use up to three different kinds of air movers strategically placed to move air over the area and wick out what moisture is left.  We also use dehumidifiers to lower the moisture levels in the air and hasten the drying process.

We understand that thorough drying is the only protection against mold growth.  To make sure we dry your carpet and structure up to its dry standard we use a range of equipment including moisture meters and moisture probes to measure the moisture content continuously through the drying process.

Surprise Mold Growth in Bedford, Texas

Mold Remediation Surprise Mold Growth in Bedford, Texas Surprise Mold Growth Bedford Texas

A Bedford Texas homeowner went on vacation for two weeks in July only to come back to surprise mold growth covering a significant amount of the inside of their house. The week prior to their vacation we were experiencing cooler days than normal here in the DFW Metroplex and they didn’t think twice about turning their thermostat up to 80 before they left.  Unfortunately, their HVAC unit decided to spring a leak shortly after they left for vacation and the true Texas summer heat came back. The moisture from the leak and the higher than normal temperature inside of their home supported the fast spread of mold growth.

We were able to perform the mold remediation before it could spread any further. We cleaned and treated all the effected areas and it looked like new when our job was complete.

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
