Mold grows within 24 to 48 hours of a water intrusion event. If left untreated, mold can affect the integrity of the damaged building materials. PUTMAN RESTORATION recommends addressing the issue as soon as possible. Also, make sure to address the root cause of the water intrusion to prevent future mold growth.
Common Causes of Mold Growth:
- Humid Environments
- Poor Ventilation
- Flood or Storm Damage
- Pipe or Appliance Leaks
- Leaky Roofs or Windows
What To Expect During Mold Remediation
Putman Restoration will conduct a visual assessment and work with a third-party mold consultant to test and identify all areas affected by mold growth. Louisiana law states that the company who perform mold remediation cannot be the same company to test for mold. Also, the mold removal company must be a licensed mold remediation contractor with the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors.
During remediation, Putman Restoration will ensure mold exposure is contained to the affected area. A proper containment limits the rest of your home or office to mold exposure.
Putman Restoration will hire a third-party mold consultant to perform clearance sampling to make sure there are no more traces of mold or bacteria. This will tell us if the remediation and cleaning efforts were successful.
