Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Volatile organic compounds that can lead to health effects can often be enough of a reason for Shreveport homeowners and business owners to act quickly when a mold colonization gets discovered.

Mold growth can also damage structural elements and degrade construction materials and contents, causing irreparable damages. With how quickly the organisms can spread throughout an affected area, containment strategies like our SERVPRO of South Shreveport team employs are critical to protecting your property.

Containment in Shreveport:

• 6-mil poly sheeting secured with painter's tape, and tension poles when and where needed
• staging area also separated from clean areas of the structure to prevent cross-contamination
• air scrubbers, with HEPA filtration systems using negative air pressure to prevent the airborne circulation of spores and particles
• seal HVAC systems including return registers during the remediation

With many IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) on our team, we bring knowledge and confidence to move quickly where mold is found. We are also certified with ABRA for biohazardous control of unwholesome environments.

We have abrasive media cleaning techniques

• soda blasting 
• dry ice blasting 
• scrapers and fine sandpaper 

Our inventory includes antimicrobial sprays, biocides, and fungicides for application to prevent the future growth of mold after the service has been completed.

We offer controlled demolition techniques that can remove the presence of mold colonies quickly and efficiently. With a 24/7 response from Stonewall to downtown Shreveport, our AMRTs can get effective mitigation and remediation started quickly for your home or business.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
