At APEX Disaster Specialists Louisiana, we pride ourselves on our rapid response to water damage and mold issues. Our recent project, focused on water damage and mold mitigation in Lake Charles, LA, at the Golden Corral Restaurant,, is a testament to our commitment to restoring properties to their pre-damage condition. This case study details our approach and the steps we took to resolve severe water damage and mold growth in the restaurant’s banquet hall.

Identifying the Problem

When we were called to address a critical situation at the Golden Corral Restaurant, we discovered that the banquet hall had suffered extensive water damage due to a roof leak that had also led to mold growth. Knowing that this could pose health risks and further damage to the structure, we got to work immediately.

The Affected Areas:

  • Ceiling: Entire area, including drop ceiling tiles
  • Walls: Drywall and insulation
  • Air Ducting System

Our Approach: Water Damage Repair and Commercial Mold Mitigation

Step 1: Assessment and Containment

Upon arrival, our team conducted a thorough assessment using moisture detectors to understand the extent of the damage. We then sealed off the affected area and protected the carpeted floors to prevent further spread and cross-contamination.

Step 2: Demolition and Removal

Using demolition equipment, we carefully removed all damaged materials. This included stripping the walls down to the studs and removing affected ceiling tiles and insulation.

Step 3: Mold Remediation

After demolition, our team focused on mold mitigation. We removed all traces of mold from surfaces and air ducts. Then, we applied an anti-microbial spray to eliminate any remaining mold spores and prevent future growth.

Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification

We used air movers and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the area. This step is crucial to ensure no residual moisture could lead to future mold growth.

Step 5: Air Quality Control

To address air quality, we used ozone machines and deodorizers. This not only neutralized any lingering odors but also ensured that the air quality was safe for patrons and staff. We also did a complete air duct cleaning.


Total Restoration and a Business Back on Their Feet

The final phase involved reconstructing the banquet hall. We repaired walls, ceilings, and the ducting system, restoring the hall to its original condition. Our team’s diligent work ensured that the Golden Corral Restaurant could resume its operations in a safe, clean, and welcoming environment.
