Mold can be an annoyance as soon as it is discovered. Not only is it an unpleasant sight to see, but it can start small and spread quickly. Many property owners are actually not aware of the serious health effects that are associated with mold. While some species prove to be more dangerous than others, all cases must be removed right away. This is because they have the ability to release their spores into the air, spread to other areas, and trigger severe allergies and breathing difficulties.
However, ServiceMaster Restoration by Century is available to provide professional mold removal services in the Garland, TX area. Our mold technicians have years of experience and are certified to remove all cases of mold in both residential and commercial properties.
Damages Sustained by Mold
While many types of mold are dangerous, they also pose a severe threat to your building materials. As many properties contain drywall and wood for their building materials, these also provide the perfect habitat for mold to develop. As drywall and wood contain an organic material called cellulose, the fungus feeds off of structure that causes severe damage to the property. In addition, it can also spread to other areas containing high concentrations of moisture.
But the professionals at ServiceMaster Restoration by Century are experts in completely removing mold from all areas of the property. They will arrive quickly, identify all contaminated areas, secure the damage, and eliminate all spores, including the source. This is done by applying advanced products to eliminate the bacteria and prevent it from returning in the future.
Our technicians cover the following when providing mold cleanup services
• Pre-inspection upon arrival to identify the source of the mold and all contaminated areas.
• Any areas that are at high risk for future mold growth will be identified.
• The technician will use advanced products and equipment to eliminate all cases of mold at the source.
• Any remaining spores will be removed and the damage within the building materials will be restored.

They use advanced methods, products, and equipment to identify all areas, remove the mold at its source, and prevent any future mold from developing.
