Mold Damage from Pet Activity in Your Century City Home

Pets and Plants Often Cause Mold Infestations in a Century City Home, Call SERVPRO for Remediation

SERVPRO Offers Professional Remedies for Mold Damage

Many Century City residents enjoy the company of pets. Taking care of a pet is an excellent way for children to learn a sense of responsibility that lasts a lifetime. Quite often, though, the adults in the home end up providing a majority of a pet's needs instead.

When a Century City homeowner finds mold damage near a pet's feeding or bedding area, we can minimize long-term damage to the rest of the home by remediating early. Mold and other microbes can hide easily in the regions that you do not see, such as inside wall cavities and under carpeting. Restoring your home's interior generally costs less than replacing those same materials once they become damaged, making preventative remediation work crucial toward protecting your entire home. Pets are notorious for tracking in mold spores from the outdoors.

Without using equipment that creates an area of negative pressure, airborne particulates can contaminate unaffected rooms in the house. We direct these suspended particles outside. As we remediate, we double bag any materials we encounter that exhibit damage, but SERVPRO remediators clean everything determined to contain no damage but only covered in mold growth. Mold does not damage materials merely by its presence. Colonies can survive by consuming the organic components in the dust, along with cellulose structure bearing materials.

These microorganisms must reach into the material with hyphae to cause damaging effects. Non-porous, inorganic materials do not readily become damaged by this type of activity. However, large areas still require protective enclosures because we want to contain the spores given off by mold colonies when we begin cleaning them away from surfaces and keep them from infesting other areas of your home. Preventing further damage from fungal activity remains a crucial part of remediation. SERVPRO technicians can discuss the options regarding preventative measures with you, as well.

SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood can send IICRC-certified technicians to your home who are skilled in providing excellent services that protect your property from microbial invasions. Our mold damage remediation experts restore homes in Westwood Village and surrounding locations to their preloss condition and make everything "Like it never even happened." Contact us by calling (310) 390-7540 whenever you find moldy areas or detect persistent musty odors that often indicate microbial growth.
