New Orleans Water Leak and Mold Damage
The water from a broken pipe soaked into the drywall of this New Orleans house causing some non-salvageable damage. To preserve the remainder of the wall and the floorboards, a rapid drying out of the affected building elements was needed. SERVPRO technicians have a lot of flood-cut experience in the New Orleans area, for many years. Fortunately, this one was not the result of a hurricane or tropical storm. Unfortunately, mold had started to develop. The non-contaminated water and extraction equipment prepared the area for the next step, drying to standard moisture content levels. An application of an antimicrobial solution can help to inhibit new mold growth. Now the installation of a small strip of sheetrock can complete the job prior to patching and painting. Count on the fast SERVPRO response and experience to minimize mold damage to your home or business after a water-damaging incident.
