The Mold Remediation Process After a Hurricane

During a hurricane or tropical storm, the likelihood of your home sustaining water damage is high. When your home sustains water damage, mold growth is highly likely and can cause potential health issues for your family. Therefore, you should know what to expect if you need mold remediation after a storm. Here’s how the post-hurricane mold remediation process takes place, from detection to completion.

If you suspect the presence of mold in your home after a storm, you need to seek out a reputable mold inspection company. The right company can tell you the extent of the mold growth and even what type of mold is growing in your home.

In Louisiana, the company that performs mold inspection cannot perform mold remediation as well, as there is a conflict of interest. Reputable mold remediation companies will insist on a third-party mold inspection. After the mold inspection company confirms mold growth, you’ll need to call a mold remediation company like CLEAR Restoration to remove the mold from your home safely.
