Banishing Mold from Troubled Spots in a Lake Charles Home

At Apex Disaster Specialists Louisiana, LLC, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch mold remediation services. This case study highlights a recent project we completed for a residential homeowner. The job involved Lake Charles mold remediation in multiple rooms, including the bathroom, playroom, hallway, and utility room. We made sure to provide thorough remediation.

Handling Mold Infestation in Multiple Rooms

From the initial inspection and containment to mold removal and final clearance, every step is equally important. Here’s a closer look at how we tackled the mold problem in the bathroom, playroom, hallway, and utility room, restoring the home to a safe and healthy environment.

Step 1: Initial Inspection and Assessment

Our process started with a thorough inspection of the affected areas. The homeowner noticed a musty odor and visible mold growth in several rooms. We assessed everything in detail to determine the extent of the mold damage. Our team found water stains in the hallway, and mold in the bathroom, playroom, hallway, and utility room, affecting the ceiling, wall sections, and utility room shelving.

Step 2: Containment

The first step in our remediation process was to set up containment barriers. This prevented the mold from spreading to unaffected areas of the home. We used plastic sheeting to seal off the contaminated zones and installed zipper doors for safe entry and exit.

Step 3: Air Filtration

Next, we set up air scrubbers equipped with HEPA filters. These machines removed airborne mold spores, ensuring the air quality remained safe during the remediation process. This step was important in preventing the spread of mold spores to other parts of the home.

Step 4: Mold Removal

With the containment in place and air scrubbers running, we started the mold removal process. We carefully removed the affected ceiling and wall sections in the bathroom, playroom, hallway, and utility room.

Step 5: Cleaning and Disinfection

After removing the mold-affected materials, we cleaned and disinfected all surfaces using a high-grade antimicrobial agent. This step ensured that any remaining mold spores were eliminated. 

Step 6: Drying and Dehumidification

To prevent mold from returning, we thoroughly dried the affected areas. We used dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers to reduce moisture levels. Maintaining low humidity is key to stopping mold growth, so we monitored the moisture levels until they were at safe levels.

Step 7: Final Inspection and Clearance

Once the remediation process was complete, we did a final inspection to ensure all mold had been removed. We also tested the air quality to confirm that no mold spores remained. The homeowner was satisfied with our work and appreciated the thoroughness of our process.
