The Solutions We Offer
Mold Testing and Inspection
A mold inspection focuses on determining if there is water damage present within the home that is causing a black mold problem. Because some sort of mold content is present in just about every home, a determination is made during the mold assessment if it was caused by water damage.
Mold Remediation and Removal
Mold remediation is the process of cleaning mold by removing mold and treating surfaces and materials that have been contaminated by mold or mildew. The methods used for removing black mold will vary, depending on the type of mold in the house and the effects of mold on the surface or material.

Mold can, and likely will, come back after remediation if the water/moisture problem isn’t also fixed. This is why the first step in any remediation job is to find and remove the source of moisture to reduce the chance of mold becoming an issue again. A quick inspection can easily give clarity into the severity of the situation.
Mold needs three things to grow:
Food source. (This includes most building materials such as wood, drywall, insulation, etc.)
Water source. (e.g. flooding, leaks, condensation, etc.)
High relative humidity (Above 60% is ripe for mold growth. Keep below 50% to be safe).
Since food can be found just about anywhere in your home or business, the easiest and most productive way to inhibit mold growth is by getting rid of any unnecessary water sources. With the right conditions, mold can grow in as little as 24-48 hours.
Mold remediation in New Orleans La can be important before more issues begin. Choosing to avoid expert advice can be disastrous to you and your family’s health. Re-infestation is also a risk if you choose to get rid of mold on your own. Mold testing kits from box stores are expensive and don’t accurately tell you how serious the problem is or where it is located.
Mold strains found in limited areas, like a small growth patch in the bathroom near the tub or on a small portion of drywall near a leaky AC, can easily be treated. Mold cleaners can be used to wipe down the affected surface, along with the grout and replacing the caulking. A small area of sheetrock (about 10 square feet or less) with mold is not considered severe enough to warrant professional services. It can easily be sectioned off from the rest of the house and cleaned up with a mold remover. Once you begin to notice initial signs of mold growth, remember to always look out for additional symptoms elsewhere around your home.
For serious mold problems, you should consult a professional mold remediation expert in the New Orleans area to take a look at the situation. Mold can grow very rapidly in certain environments, like Louisiana, homeowners should quickly take steps to get the situation under control the better. The longer you wait, the more you allow the mold to grow uncontrolled and cause tremendous mold remediation costs to solve the problem.
