Mold Damage is No Match for Professional Methods in Shreveport
SERVPRO Performs Skilled Mold Damage Cleanup for Shreveport Properties
It is never a fun experience to find mold growing anywhere in your Shreveport home or business. To keep it from colonizing and spreading further, you need quick action and careful methods for the best results. While there are countless types of mold, you need to know that some are more harmful than others. Mold is everywhere, but you never want it within your living or workspace. Should you suspect black mold growth in your home, you can contact SERVPRO for skilled mold remediation to handle it safely and effectively.
Why not just clean up the mold damage in your Shreveport home yourself? Because trained professionals know how mold develops and the right way to safely clean it so that all parties involved are protected. Let’s go over how mold grows:
- Tiny mold spores move through the air, floating around dormant as they look for the ideal conditions to settle and colonize.
- The perfect conditions for mold growth include moist, dark, and warm spaces with organic substances to feed on – drywall, paper goods, carpeting, and more.
- Excessive moisture, humid conditions, and water damage within your home can spell disaster if not remedied fast. This leaves areas like attics, crawlspaces, flooring, and cabinetry susceptible to mold growth.
Why Should a Business Use Professional Mold Cleanup Versus In-house Cleaning Personnel?
Any business wants to create a comfortable, safe establishment for clients, customers, and staff. Hiring mold remediation ensures you get the right level of cleaning to rest assured all who enter can breathe safely. We never claim to remove mold altogether, which is impossible to do. Instead, we meticulously clean all surfaces, pulling up spores safely to keep them from spreading and sanitizing everything – Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.
Mold Infestation and Your Home’s Property Value
If you are hoping to put your home on the market in the future, the last thing you want is mold to pop up during an inspection or potential buyer walkthrough. Even the slightest bit of mold can multiply into something more involved, thus impacting your property value. Additionally, the smell of mold is enough to turn buyers around before they even finish the viewing or open house.
Should you suspect mold is present in your home, look for some of the following signs and then call us at SERVPRO:
- Dark spots developing on the ceiling, floors, and/or walls
- Visible mold spores or clusters
- Musty, damp, or foul odors
- Wallpaper or paint that is peeling with dark spots beneath
The sooner you have our team at your door to begin mold remediation, the quicker we can prevent a significant infestation from developing. We may be able to salvage furnishings, floorboards, drywall, and other elements that have been impacted by mold. For all materials beyond cleaning and repair, we can perform controlled demolition to remove and replace to make it “Like it never even happened.”
Our SERVPRO technicians know how to spot mold, which we look for with our initial inspection and assessment of your property. We put on personal protective equipment (PPE) and put containment barriers in place to keep spores from floating through the air or getting tracked into unimpacted areas of your building. We use vacuums and techniques to pull up spores while cleaning all surfaces thoroughly with antimicrobials and other cleaning agents. Everything gets sanitized and deodorized so that you can rest assured your family and pets are free to enter once again after we get done.
