Mold removal should be your number one priority as soon as you spot any growth. It’s a significant problem here in Lake Charles and throughout the Southern Gulf. Warm, moist air creates the perfect environment for excessive mold growth, especially after catastrophic events like hurricanes or flooding rains. Mold growth is commonly found in areas prone to excess moisture. In these areas, mold is generally easily detected and removed, but after a water damage event from flooding rains, burst pipes or a malfunctioning HVAC unit, mold may grow unnoticed behind walls, in carpet, in HVAC ducts, in furniture, or in other hidden areas. Mold is resilient and can grow on nearly every type of surface. If your home or business has recently experienced water damage, contact Action Restoration online today or give us a call at (800) 760-9081.
Our Mold Remediation Services in Lake CharlesAction Restoration offers a variety of mold removal services in Lake Charles and throughout the Gulf Coast region, including:
- Air duct cleaning – An HVAC system that does not properly drain can be a source of mold growth within your air ducts. Mold spores in your HVAC ducts can easily spread throughout your home or business, threatening the health of family members or employees. Our air duct cleaning services will remove mold from your air ducts, leaving you with a safe and healthy air system.
- Surface cleaning – We will clean and decontaminate all affected areas with our environmentally friendly ASA-1000 decontaminant solution.
