Experienced Mold Remediation for Slidell Homes

Here in Slidell, water is a daily part of life. It’s as much of an artery for our community as I-90 when it comes to commerce and just getting around the city or having fun out on Lake Pontchartrain for some of us. Unfortunately, water can bring problems like flooding and mold.  

Mold removal and remediation need to be accomplished quickly when Slidell homes become infested. SERVPRO Franchise professionals understand that immediate disposal of infested structural and personal property, along with the active mold spores, stops the threat of mold and dramatically reduces the risk of future infestations.  

With the threat eliminated, restoration teams can begin the process of returning each home to its original, clean condition. Team members can replace support structures like wall framing and then hang new sheetrock or other types of drywall and wall paneling.  

In some places, remediation means cleaning out mold in a manner to prevent loss of property. For mold found in attics or sub-flooring, SERVPRO SERVPRO Franchise professionals can use soda blasting to safely remove mold on the surface and even hyphae that penetrated it.  

Similar to sandblasting, our technicians use compressed air to project sodium bicarbonate in a high-pressure stream to clean wood support structures in minutes compared to the hours it takes to scrape beams by hand. The only drawback is that the expended soda also contains spores and dust which presents a hazard. Our personnel don protective masks and full protective suits when needed to prevent eye injury and skin exposure.  

After completing the process, other team members bring in commercial-grade vacuums to capture and remove the expanded material. Once they remove the last of it, they go over the cleaned surfaces again, this time with specialized HEPA filters designed to catch even a single mold spore off of surfaces.  

At SERVPRO of Slidell, we want to return owners and residents to their homes as quickly as we can safely do so. If you have or believe there is mold in your home, call us at (985) 649-1516 today. We are here for you.
