Mold Remediation Specialists in New Orleans Help Protect Homes from Microscopic Invaders

No matter where you go inside your New Orleans residence, microbes live there with you. Many of these go about their business without ever causing you grief or harm. Some, however, wait for a period of change in the indoor environment that brings an increase in moisture. When this change happens, some microorganisms switch from their naturally dormant state to a highly active one and begin to proliferate.  

SERVPRO helps protect and restore homes in the New Orleans area with standard mold remediation techniques. Eliminating the entire microbial population from any dwelling is not possible, nor would it result in a healthy environment. However, whenever mold grows too rapidly and covers a large area, removal of the contaminated sections of building materials and intensive cleaning of affected belongings and furnishings mitigates the situation.  

As we remediate damaged sections in a home, we use air scrubbers to strip the air of microbes and their spores. These spores can cause subsequent infestations in other areas of your residence, as well as cause health effects in you and your family members. Our mold remediation specialists place these air scrubbers outside of negative air pressure chambers to contain any already existing spores and also inside these chambers.  

When inside a chamber, an air scrubber is a part of the chamber once we hook it up to plastic tubing. This tubing runs from the air scrubber to the outside of your home, directing air out, while pulling in only fresh air from outside the chamber, which prevents any of our equipment from sending spores into any nearby uncontaminated places.  

Plastic sheeting is our ally when remediating mold damage, so we also use it in the form of double bags to help us safely remove moldy pieces of drywall and other materials. Keeping these pieces contained helps us protect your property.  

SERVPRO of North Kenner, Harahan & Lakeview can restore your home, "Like it never even happened." even when mold damage looks unmanageable. Our specialists hold IICRC certificates and are ready 24/7 to help protect your residence in Jefferson and Lakeview. Call us at (504) 468-3046 for prompt and professional remediation experts.
