Mold Damage Inspection And Remediation


A wise business owner arranges for regular inspections for hidden mold colonies and the damage these microbial outbreaks inflict upon structure and contents. It is prudent to avoid an outbreak rather than waiting for the odor and unsightly fungal activity to proliferate. Your local SERVPRO offers a thorough mold assessment, including remediation planning if necessary.

Spring is the perfect time to take charge of the possibility of mold damage threatening your Lafayette business. HVAC systems hide dust, dirt, and odors as well as the possibility of mold growth within the ductwork. Our high-trained technicians know how to examine every bend and crevice of your heating and cooling configurations, checking for anything that impedes its proper operation, including microbial growth.

During the change of seasons, the melting of ice and snow and spring rains looks for the path of least resistance. Even a tiny crack in a gutter or downspout on your commercial building has the potential to permit moisture to soak into rafters, ceilings, drywall or other structures. Ice backed up under the shingles in the winter months moves moisture into your business space slowly, the dark and availability of carbon-based surfaces like wood, plaster, drywall, and wallcoverings is a perfect environment for mold growth. Attic colonies of mildew and mold migrate into offices and other workspaces if not halted. SERVPRO staff finding evidence of mold damage during a periodic spring inspection act quickly, designing a sound remediation plan to remove the mold found and limit any future growth.

Our team delves into all areas where mold damage hides, ready to assist you in abating the damage before it overwhelms your business. Vents and ducts in your HVAC system receive a thorough cleaning, filters replaced, and troublesome areas sealed against further growth. We contain mold found elsewhere, using negative pressure machines and venting to the exterior in cases where the spread of spores is a concern. Full blown fungal colonies and structures or contents infiltrated beyond cleaning and disinfection face proper disposal after removal and encasing.

Finally, SERVPRO technicians identify and arrange for repair of the leaks that allowed moisture to activate the mold spores in the first place. We advise on strategies to keep water from intruding in the future to avoid future mold damage.

Be proactive and invite SERVPRO of Lafayette to set up a yearly mold damage sweep of your business property. Call (765) 420-0077 to schedule an appointment before the seasons change again.
