Why Mold Damage Assessment Needs To Be Done in Your Metairie Property 

Though you may think mold damage is a common issue that you can quickly fix, sometimes you may end up making avoidable mistakes which may end up being costly in the future. For instance, failure to correctly determine the extent of the contamination may cause you to employ inappropriate remediation procedures and risk further damage. Our team is keen on the analysis part, and where necessary we engage the services of a mold inspector when working on your Metairie property.

Once we have determined the degree of mold damage in your Metairie home, the next thing we do is to incorporate containment measures to prevent further contamination. Our SERVPRO technicians can introduce a negative pressure at the site and partition your building into zones. We test and treat each zone differently as part of the remediation process.
 
The degree of mold contamination also helps us when choosing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. When we are dealing with small contaminated spaces, using an N95 respirator may be satisfactory; otherwise, we use a half-mask or a full-face respirator when attending to extensive contaminations. Wearing bodysuits, chemical resistant gloves, and eye protection can also protect us from possible health effects that molds cause. PPE personal protective equipment is crucial.
 
Some situations may force us to do an inventory and pack out your items. We can also clean your contents at the site and remove and dispose of visible mold. Our SERVPRO technicians can inspect the HVAC system for signs of mold contamination and do the necessary cleaning and replace contaminated filters. We use disinfectants when cleaning your items to that any mold debris that remains cannot reactivate and form new mold colonies. In most cases, we dispose of porous materials that have been extensively damaged by mold upon approval of the owner. Sanding, damp-wiping, and HEPA vacuuming are some of the techniques that we use during the remediation process.
 
SERVPRO of Metairie is a trusted restoration industry leader that offers proven mold remediation services, which meet the needs of homes and business premises. Call us at (504) 496-0193 to let us come up with a restoration plan to return your property to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened."
