Bolton Clean Up Day 2018

Bolton Clean Up Day 2018

SERVPRO of Alexandria had the opportunity to assist Bolton High School in cleaning up the building and surround grounds in preparation for the 2018 school year.

It was a wonderful experience that allowed us to get involved with our community as well provide some much needed restoration to a 102 year old school.

Black Mold?

Black Mold?

Black Mold? If a fire and water restoration company says "black mold" without having a mold report BE VERY WEARY OF THEM. Its common to say "black mold" but the truth is most people have no idea what it is unless its sampled by a licensed mold inspector or industrial hygienist, sent to a lab and identified as such within a report.

When people say "black mold" typically they mean Stachybotrys chartarum. The following is a link to the center for disease control with FAQ's:
https://www.cdc.gov/mold/stachy.htm

SERVPRO of Alexandria follows strict guidelines regarding the remediation of any kind of suspicious growth. If you want to be 100% sure that your mold issue has been handled correctly then give us a call. There is only one way to do this type of work so except nothing less.

Central Louisiana Mold Proliferation

These patches of mold were caused by the condensation and moisture buildup between the bedroom wall and the opposing room's bathtub plumbing. The service door cut out in the wall revealed the leak which we fixed and then treated the walls, after scraping, with an antifungal agent.

Fast Smoke & Fire Cleanup for an Alexandria Office Building

Fast Smoke & Fire Cleanup for an Alexandria Office Building

The fire started in the breakroom on the bottom floor of the building from a microwave.  The fire department arrived within minutes to put the fire out, but there was heavy smoke throughout the lower level of the building.  We were on site within 15 minutes from receiving the call from the property manager. We were prepared to take instant action since we had set up an ERP (Emergency Ready Profile) with management previously. We immediately set air scrubbers throughout the lower level to limit the smoke damage and then started removing affected contents from the source room. By 9 pm we had the microwave room completely taken apart and cleaned up. Our crews continued cleaning all the rooms affected by the smoke. Ultimately, the customer was quite pleased.

Drilling Holes For Faster Drying

Drilling Holes For Faster Drying

This photo is an example of how in select water damage situations SERVPRO of Alexandria are able to remove the baseboard or vinyl molding at the base of the wall and drill several 1/2" holes in between the studs along the base of the wall. Air movers are then placed along the wall blowing drying air. This helps increase circulation within the wall cavity and speeds up the drying process while avoiding cutting into the drywall.  When the area is completely dry the holes can be hidden when the baseboard or vinyl molding is replaced.
