Mold Cleanup in a Lafayette Property Requires Skills

Most homeowners cringe at just the mention of the word mold. If you notice any signs of mold growing in your Lafayette home, like a musty smell, staining, and discoloration on affected areas, taking the necessary steps to identify and remove it is essential. It causes aesthetic and structural deterioration.

Mold removal at your Lafayette property is not something you should perform on your own, especially if the levels are high. Removing it is challenging and requires specific equipment, training, and certification to do the job correctly. SERVPRO technicians have experience removing and cleaning up mold from an indoor environment.

We Can Safely Address the Problem Through:

  • Source identification
  • Containments
  • Antimicrobial application
  • Removal and cleanup of porous materials

Usually, the most effective way to ensure proper remediation is by getting rid of compromised materials and contents per industry standards. Removing things may involve drywall, insulation, carpet, wood trim, and even some furniture. Our IICRC trained SERVPRO technicians safely wrap and discard any soiled belongings that we cannot thoroughly clean, such as those made of porous materials.

Removing Mold Safely

SERVPRO implements controls and containment to prevent cross-contamination of unaffected areas of your home by establishing negative pressure and using HEPA-filtered vacuums to collect residues. Our technicians thoroughly clean all surfaces and apply specialized solutions such as sporicides to limit further growth. We take caution with cleaners since combining bleach and ammonia creates toxic vapors.

Colonies can also develop on nonporous surfaces such as sinks, metal, glass, tubs, tiles, and toilets. Our SERVPRO technicians often damp wipe these nonporous areas using antimicrobial cleaners. This method is effective in removing mold without spending too much time.

Other Methods for Mold Cleanup:

  • Air scrubbing
  • Dry ice blasting
  • Sanding
