Bawcomville, LA Mold Damage Remediation

Some have made a living off the seemingly persistent damp and marshy conditions of Ouachita Parish, like the Duck Commander company with a museum and gift shop right in Bawcomville. These environmental conditions can facilitate mold growth in any affected structure, from the thousands of homes to municipal buildings like the Ouachita Fire Department. Our skilled SERVPRO remediators can help with:

  • Mold removal
  • Mold remediation
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Attic mold removal
  • Black mold
  • Mold inspections

How Common is Bathroom Mold Removal in Bawcomville Residences? 

The bathroom is a common location for mold and microbial threats to develop after persistent moisture meets inadequate ventilation. Our technicians must move quickly to contain this situation from spreading to other areas of the property while remediation gets underway.

How Does SERVPRO Remove Attic Mold from Bawcomville Homes? 

The attic is another common location for mold development, especially after powerful storms leave roofs vulnerable to water penetration. Attic mold removal hinges on various remediation actions beginning with surface treatments like biocides or aggressive hand sanding surface materials. Blasting can be an abrasive cleaning tactic to help as well.

Does Mold Remediation Also Include Deodorization for Bawcomville Properties?

Mold removal must also include odor elimination. Active colonies produce powerful smells that overwhelm porous materials and open areas. We have odor sealing primers to recoat surfaces and effective deodorization solutions to help.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. 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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • 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.

The Mold Remediation Process

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:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (318) 345-5121

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Bawcomville, LA home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
