As a Property Manager, Facility Manager or Director of Large Properties when a large water loss strikes it can be daunting as to who to call first. Y9u may feel overwhelmed and confused during these situations especially as you watch the water flow into your property without any idea how to stop it or how to fix it. These types of emergencies can be dramatic and emotional for any manager. Watching your facility flood can be heart wrenching as the walls, furniture and desks become saturated. Business operations will cease and when you and your staff can get everything back to normal is a complete mystery.


What do you do? Who do you call? Who is going to help you? These are all pertinent questions but let’s start with the first step….Shut Off The Water at the water main. This will save hundreds and thousands of gallons of water from flooding your facility. It is literally one of the most important things you can do at this point. Essentially, stop the bleeding. Next step, take all the pictures and videos that you can stomach. When it comes to these claim’s documentation is your best friend so document, document, document.

What next? Who can you call? Can they handle a job of this magnitude? Will they be able to get there immediately so as to avoid any secondary damage to the property in question. Most Restoration companies won’t be able to come out until the next day and then much more damage will have already occurred. It is essential that any facility manager or property manager have a Commercial Restoration contact to call when this happens who can get out there ASAP and help get things under control. SERVPRO offers access to this service to all of our Emergency Ready Plan customers.

Lets Break It Down:

Within the first hour water will find the path of least resistance and saturate everything in its path. Stains and finishes will release from furniture and could cause long term and permanent damage to flooring and carpets. All paper goods will become unsalvageable due to saturation. From one to 24 Hours drywall begins to swell and tear apart, metal surfaces begin to tarnish due to moisture, all laminated furniture begins to split or swell and then crack apart.

Between 48 hours and a week mold, mildew and other contaminants will begin to grow on all surfaces and spread throughout the property. Metal begins to rust, corrode and pit mark due to the moisture in the air. All wet furniture will begin to warp and sway and then show signs of mold on the surface. Paint throughout the facility will begin to blister and peel away from the structure. Windows, doors, casings, and studs begin to swell and warp. Wood flooring begins to swell, warp, or buckle. Persons with respiratory concerns or compromised immune systems could experience distress or a heightened sensitivity to allergens from microbial growth.

After one week of water damage and saturation all claim costs and reconstruction time and cost increases due to more extensive restoration. Structural safety and health concerns may pose serious hazards to occupants

The 4 Key Factors in Commercial Restoration

10/15/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial Restoration in Baton Rouge Commercial Restoration in Downtown Baton Rouge

Residential restoration and commercial restoration are very different types of projects. Residential is very emotional for the customer and family that resides in the home and also be very personal due to the contents within the home having very sentimental attachments. Commercial restoration can also be emotional for the clients but due to their being more stakeholders involved in the loss things can get much more complex. In commercial restoration we have business interruption, customer impact, Inventory issues and contents maintenance. For the commercial restoration process to go smoothly the 4 key factors are: safety, stability, continuity and communication.

Factor 1: Safety

Safety is the paramount concern when it comes to commercial restoration projects because nothing is more important than the people. There are a variety of safety issues when on a commercial restoration project including mold exposure, hazardous materials, structural weaknesses, utility hazards including gas and electrical and construction related safety hazards. With all of these factors together the risk is just to great for secondary damage and additional loss if safety is not at the forefront of the project. Safety must not only be the first step in commercial restoration but must also be a key factor in every stage of the project.

Factor 2: Stability 

          Stabilizing the loss is the first priority so that we can limit any secondary damage to the building or property. This included stopping the source of the water intrusion, putting out the fire and tarping up the roof and areas of the house that are exposed to the elements. As soon as the disaster is contained the team can begin the process of pre-cleaning, water extraction, dehumidification, salvaging contents and setting up various level of containment around the property area is all part of the emergency services phase.

Factor 3: Communication

          The most important thing on any job big or small is always going to be communication. As a restoration company your communication should be on point with all of the parties involved including the client, adjusters, clerks, agents and all other POI’s. Commercial restoration can be a very fluid and moving science with scope changes, directive changes and client requests so the restoration company must have good communication. The company must be able to make split second decisions and communicate that to their crew instantly with good follow up and leadership from the technicians. Solid communication will allow everyone to prepare, plan and adapt to the changing needs of a large project.

Factor 4: Business Continuity

          Buinesses need some assurances that they will be back up and running as a company very soon following a loss. As a company SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge will do everything in their power to make sure that our commercial clients are back up and running their business in some capacity as soon as possible. Clients who don’t feel that their restoration project managers are making these efforts for business continuity will replace those companies quickly. Expediting the restoration and the reconstruction needs of a commercial client ensure that they can get back to normal operations sooner rather than later

I hope this little blog has given you a little tid-bit of what the actuality of what commercial restoration can be like and its differences from residential restoration. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call us at SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge at (225)753-3434

SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge comes to the RESCUE for Hurricane IDA

10/13/2021 (Permalink)

Hurricane Ida Hurricane Ida

SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge is quickly becoming one of the Premier Commercial Large Loss Restoration Companies in the US.

2020 was a major year for SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge 

After exemplary performances in 2020 during Hurricane Laura & Hurricane Sally 2021 started off with a bang. The freeze / flood in Dallas, Houston, Shreveport areas saw SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge on major projects for many months and just shortly following the team did multiple large loss projects in Baton Rouge after some major flooding hit various areas of the city. All in all the SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge Storm team has responded to and successfully restored a number a very large commercial losses with a high quality of professionalism and efficiency. 

Hurricane IDA makes Landfall August 29th 

On August 29th of 2021 Hurricane IDA, a category 4 Hurricane, swept across the south central area of South Louisiana and destroyed everything in its path. Immediately after the hurricane the SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge Technicians were on the ground following up on various calls and leads and landed at Chabert Medical Hospital in Houma, LA. The hospital, which is am Oschners owned location, had sustained major damage to their roof which allowed for multiple water incursions throughout the 5 floors of the building. SERVPRO responded quickly and decisively to get all of the water extracted, the wet materials removed and the building dried out safely and quickly. The team immediately transitioned to Hammond, La to work on the severely affected Southeastern University campus along with SERVPRO of Birmingham. After remediating multiple building and drying the campus the team moved on to Delgado Community College in New Orleans, LA. Delgado offered a major challenge for our team due to the college having 8 separate and affected campuses spread through out the greater New Orleans area. The Delgado project was completed with flying colors and accolades from the staff and the other parties onsite. The team also restored NOCCA (New Orelans Center of Creative Arts) and LUMCOM (Louisiana Universities Maritime Consortium). All in all the team remediated many major projects for the State of Louisiana and for the community of Louisiana. As we look forward to the rest of year we are confident in our abilities to handle any Commercial Large Loss project with integrity, speed and professionalism. The future is bright for the SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge Commercial Large Loss Team. 

Prepare your Business for Future Storms...NOW!

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damage in Downtown Baton Rouge This was from a Major Commercial Large Loss project in downtown Baton Rouge after some pipes in the upper floors ruptured.

It never fails that after all major hurricanes and storms our phone lines are inundated with thousands of calls. Business owners are frantic for us to get out to their locations IMMEDIATELY to help them remove the water and remediate the damage as soon as possible. While this is completely understandable the reality of the situation is that we often times receive in excess of 60,000 calls for service post a major event and we cannot and do not have the resources or capabilities to handle all of the losses that those in our communities have endured. These businesses often times are forced to settle for another company who is in town to make good off of the unfortunate circumstances of others and have a terrible experience that ends up costing them months of wasted time and hundreds of thousands of dollars. I hope this can help you and your business prepare for the future reality of storms, hurricanes and catastrophic events with a little more planning and a few new friends.

Commercial Duct Cleaning Matters to your Customers the most!

8/6/2021 (Permalink)

CommercialDuctCleaning Commercial Duct Cleaning Before & After

When it comes to Commercial Buildings there are a million different things that must be dealt with and taken into account for the facility and the people inside of the facility. It can sometimes seam like duct cleaning an HVAC system that is not showing extensive and obvious problems can be a waste of time and money but nothing could be further from the truth. 

Why Do Air Ducts Need Cleaning? 

COVID-19 is absolutely transmitted through the air along with every other major virus, bacteria and contaminate. Inefficient air filtration and duct leaks can result in major intrusion of dust and other particles that that have the ability to accumulate to the point where they begin to break off and re-enter the circulated air. In the event that this occurs you will notice dust and particles enter the breathable air. 

High humidity throughout the space or major water leaks can also create an environment perfect for mold growth. Mold spores can be released through the duct system and travel throughout your entire body, this type of mold exposure can have a very negative impact on the elderly, the sick and also create upper respiratory infections. 

What Are The Benefits of Duct Cleaning

1.) Clean air ducts protect and ensure proper functionality of the whole commercial heating and cooling system in the facility. 

2.) Proper duct cleaning will remove the build up of dust and air borne viruses, bacteria and particles that could cause respiratory infections and sickness in people within the facility. 

3.) HVAC efficiency is dependent on clean and unobstructed air ducts and proper airflow throughout the system. 

4.) The longevity of the HVAC system is dramatically increased when the system is properly cleaned and serviced on a regular basis. This longevity saves thousands of dollars for the business year in and year out. 

For any further questions in regards to Commercial Duct Cleaning please give us a call at SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge. 

3 Facts Business Owners Need To Know

8/13/2020 (Permalink)

Your commercial building can be affected by flooding from several sources. Water damage can include warped flooring and moldy drywall, but one of the more immediate issues caused by flooding is the influx of contaminated water. If your business has recently been damaged by flooding, it can be helpful to understand how this type of water can cause long-term damage and what you can do to mitigate it. 

  1. It Can Contain Dangerous Chemicals 

Environmental experts often call contaminated water that stems from flooding Category 3. This means the water did not come from a sterile source and may contain a variety of hazardous components, including harsh sewer and lawn chemicals that entered the water during flooding. These chemicals can make the water dangerous to touch, so calling in a flood damage and cleanup service is the safest way to have it removed. 

  1. It May Make You Sick 

Category 3 water damage can be dangerous in more than one way. For example, standing black water can grow microbes that may cause a variety of health effects. Urine and feces may also be present, even if they are not immediately visible, so it is wise to avoid this type of water completely and wait for professional cleanup services to arrive. 

  1. Acting Quickly Can Be Essential 

Because contaminated water can become more dangerous the longer it sits, it is a good idea to call in a cleanup crew right away. This can be important even if you believe the worst of the damage has already been done. Having the water removed may reduce the chances of long-term issues with your building’s affected floors and walls and prevent mold growth, which can be difficult to treat once it takes hold. 

Cat 3 water damage can harm your commercial building in several ways. However, when you know its dangers and how to combat it, you may be able to prevent the worst of the destruction.

If your commercial building has experienced a water emergency call SERVPRO of Ascension Parish at 225-663-8877.

Business Interruption - A Commercial Clients Top Priority

8/13/2020 (Permalink)

Avoiding business interruption is almost always the top priority of our commercial clients. 

At SERVPRO of Ascension Parish, many of our members come from backgrounds in finance and accounting professions, and they understand the importance of maintaining cash-flow for a business. 

Prior to beginning a commercial restoration project, the facility is walked-through with appropriate decision makers. If avoiding business interruption is a priority, our team will work with the client to provide quality service while helping the client maintain production in their facility. Some of the ways we do that is by working out a schedule with the client so that our team works after hours or on weekends while the facility is normally closed; or, we may work around the client in specified areas during business hours; another solution is moving the client to another building until restoration and repairs have been completed. Whatever the answer may be, each is tailored to meet and satisfy the needs of our client on a case by case basis.

Commercial Damage?

Does Commercial Insurance cover Mold Damage?

7/6/2020 (Permalink)

After a hurricane or flood hits your East Baton Rouge property, you don’t just have to worry about water damage. You may also find mold within the building. Luckily, your commercial insurance policy should cover the cost of mold cleanup services.

Why Mold Is So Destructive

Mold is a fungus that appears frequently in the environment. It releases spores that spread throughout nature and enter buildings.
Mold damage occurs when spores quickly grow within a property. This typically transpires when there is excessive moisture on the premises due to:

  • Broken water heater
  • Leaky roof
  • Leaky pipe
  • Poor ventilation
  • High humidity

Once the mold begins to spread, it may destroy parts of your property. Mold frequently grows on materials that make up buildings, including carpet, wood and drywall. It then breaks down these items and uses them as food.
Worst of all, the mold may initially grow under floors or behind walls and ceiling tiles. By the time you notice this mold, the damage may have already been done.

Mold and Insurance

A standard commercial insurance policy usually features a fungus exclusion. However, there are exceptions to this exclusion. Specifically, your policy likely offers limited fungus coverage.
This mold insurance covers property destruction due to fungus that results from a specified cause of loss. The main mold-causing perils that fall into this category are water damage and leaking fire suppression systems.

What Is Covered

You can use this insurance money to repair physical damage caused by the mold. The insurance additionally covers the expense of tearing out walls or floorboards to reach the spores.


Addressing the mold on your own could just cause additional harm, so you should hire mold remediation specialists to handle the job. Insurance even covers the cost of testing the property to ensure the black mold cleanup is complete.


Without commercial insurance, you would be stuck paying for mold repairs out of your own pocket. Your insurance provider can give you more details about your specific policy.

Handling Big Problems of a Storm

6/15/2020 (Permalink)

When your company is in the midst of a storm, you want help and guidance from a storm damage team that is Here to Help. That's because a big storm can create a lot of problems for your company, including the following:

  • Mold growth
  • Flooding issues
  • Water damage
  • Contamination of materials
  • Electrical system failures
  • Leaking roof

There is never a good time for a large storm to hit your business. In a worst-case scenario you could face a lengthy business interruption. That's why a storm damage company in Ascension Parish, is a good place to start with your recovery.

Taking Care of Mold Growth
Any situation that brings in excess moisture (such as flood water) to your facility increases the risk of mold gaining a foothold. Mold is a naturally occurring fungus, and it is present just about everywhere. Under the right conditions—extra humidity, hidden corners, and cool spots—it can grow quickly. It only takes a few days for mold to develop into an unsightly colony that creates a musty odor and degrades walls and furniture. Effective mold remediation requires knowledge, training and the proper equipment. Since mold is made up of microscopic spores that get into the heating and cooling system, fast mold containment is important, as is a vigorous cleaning and deodorizing process.

Addressing Sewage Loss
Sometimes a big storm affects your plumbing system, resulting in a sewage leak. When this happens, professional cleanup is crucial. The water is likely to be contaminated with unhealthy substances; therefore, cleanup workers should wear personal protective equipment. Also, extra precautions should be taken so your employees and customers are kept away from contaminated water. Special treatment of belongings, walls, furniture, and clothing is required if these items are tainted with sewage.
Whether your company experiences mold growth after a storm or some other issue, a quick recovery is desirable. You want to get back to doing what your company does best.

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning

7/10/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning air ducts in a commercial building may seem like an unimportant item to add to a long list of “building needs”; however, it is not something to ignore, even if your ducts do not seem to be experiencing any issues. If you own a commercial property in the Baton Rouge area, consider using SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge when it comes time to clean the air ducts in your building. There are many benefits to having air ducts routinely cleaned, here are just a few:

  • Decrease in dust reentering the system, which will cut down in cleaning and remove potential allergens from the environment.
  • Reduce the risk of mold in your ducts, which will help lower the amount of mold spores spreading throughout your property.
  • Remove any materials from previous pest infestations, and decrease the likelihood of any future infestations.
  • Longer HVAC lifespan and greater HVAC efficiency.
  • Better air quality for building occupants.

For more information regarding a duct cleaning service for your commercial property call SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge at 225-753-3434.

Different Levels of Commercial Damage

7/3/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge handles not only residential damage and restoration, but commercial as well.

There are three levels of commercial damage that are considered:

Level 1

Level 1 is a small commercial loss typically involving 15,000 square feet or less of affected floor space. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a small commercial loss may include, but are not limited to, a stand-alone retail establishment, a small church, a daycare facility, a small shopping center, a small warehouse or manufacturing facility, or a stand-alone administrative building. A Level 1 loss can also be a small portion of a much larger structure.

Level 2

Level 2 is a midsize commercial loss typically involving 15,000 to 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. The building or buildings involved are usually multi-level or greatly divided spaces. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a Level 2 loss may include, but are not limited to, a small multi-family property, a midsize church or school, a small shopping center, a multi-tenant administration facility, or a midsize warehouse or manufacturing facility. A Level 2 loss can also be just a portion of a much larger structure.

Level 3

Level 3 is a large commercial loss typically involving more than 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. The building or buildings involved will likely be large multi-level structures. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a Level 3 loss can include, but are not limited to, a large church, hospital, school, or university; a large multi-family property; a mid- to high-rise retail or administration facility; a large industrial, manufacturing, or warehouse facility; or a large strip-style shopping center or shopping mall. This is the level at which it would be appropriate to refer to the project as a “large loss.”

Once our team determines the level of loss, the property is further assessed, and a team of appropriate size is dispatched to get the job done quickly and efficiently, and return your business to operation “Like it never even happened.”®

Tips to Prevent Mold in your Commercial Business

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Why should you worry about mold in your building? According to OSHA, some mold, over time, may cause structural damage to wood along with damage to furnishings and finishes. Use the following tips to help prevent mold growth in your business.

#1: Clean Out the Refrigerator

It can be difficult to keep track of shared refrigerators. Some people will always remember to clear out their leftovers, others won’t. Old food storage containers are a perfect breeding ground for mold. Over time, mold can travel to the shelving and even outside the refrigerator. Consider instituting an office refrigerator policy. If something is left in the fridge by a certain time each week, it goes in the garbage.

#2: Look for And Repair Leaks

Leaks from plumbing, windows, roofs, and more can lead to significant water damage in your business as well as an increased risk of mold growth. If you aren’t regularly inspecting your property, it’s easy for these leaks to go unchecked until they create a larger, more costly problem. Watch for telltale signs of a leak such as lower water pressure; wet spots on the floors, ceilings, or walls; and condensation around window sills and in attic spaces.

#3: Keep It Clean

It’s easy for anyone to get caught up in work and let clutter take over his or her workspace. However, clutter creates lots of hiding spots for crumbs and dust, which are both great food sources for mold. Make sure to clear the clutter and wipe down hard surfaces regularly. Make sure to promptly clean all spills as well. Clean and sanitize break rooms and bathrooms frequently. Both rooms provide ample opportunity for mold growth. These rooms should be cleaned at least weekly depending on how regularly people use each room.

#4: Turn on the AC/Dehumidifier

Leaks aren’t the only way for moisture to accumulate in your business. High humidity levels can lead to moisture and mold as well. On hot days, fans can cool you off, but they don’t do much for humidity levels. Run your AC or a dehumidifier to cut down the humidity in the building.

#5: Clean out Trash Cans

While you might switch out the liners regularly, can you remember the last time you washed out the trash cans? It’s easy for bits of food and condensation to sneak beneath liners into the can, which is all mold needs to grow. Try washing out office wastebaskets about once a month to prevent mold growth.

#6: Take Care of Your HVAC System

Your HVAC system can quickly distribute mold spores throughout your building if there is a problem. Make sure your HVAC system receives regular inspections. Sometimes moisture condenses inside air ducts or leaks drip onto ducts from ceiling tiles, which can lead to mold growth inside the ducts. Make sure to keep the HVAC drip pans clean and unobstructed. Additionally, replace your filters as needed.

#7: Slope the Ground Away from the Foundation

If the ground around your building slopes toward the foundation, water can accumulate and weaken your building’s structure. Additionally, it provides an ideal environment for mold to grow. The ground should slope away from the building. You should also make sure your building follows the local building codes for drainage. Mold is persistent. Even if you follow all the right steps it’s still possible for mold to grow and spread in your building.

Fortunately, at SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge, we have the right experience in mold remediation to make your place of business “Like it never even happened.” Unfortunately, mold doesn’t stay put, it grows quickly. You’ll want to give us a call as soon as you notice it, so we can start the remediation process. Our technicians have the training, equipment, and knowledge necessary to help locate and remediate mold efficiently. If you find mold in your place of business, call us today at 225-753-3434

Causes of Commercial Water Damage

6/19/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge Large Loss Desiccant

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms. 
 
However, many entrepreneurs and business space renters (property managers) forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings. 
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems 
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment 
This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency. 
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing 
Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. 
 
4. Backed up sewer lines 
This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings. 
 
If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime, 24/7 at (225) 753-3434 for fast help.

How Commercial Fire Sprinkler's Work: The Basics

6/29/2018 (Permalink)

If you've ever looked up at the ceiling of a commercial building and wondered how a tiny fire sprinkler can help stop a fire, you're not alone. Commercial fire sprinklers are small and unimposing, but they are actually a huge help. If you're not convinced, consider these quick facts: 

• Fire sprinklers are backed by piping that is filled with water, so that the sprinklers are always "on call," so to speak.
• Sprinklers often respond quicker than any fire department ever could, and thereby make it easier for occupants to evacuate safely. 
• Sprinklers can help control or limit the amount of toxic smoke that develops in a building. 
• Commercial sprinklers spray more than 25 gallons of water per minute. 

How a Fire Suppression System Works

A sprinkler system becomes activated as soon as the temperature near the sprinkler rises to a certain degree. The water that has been sitting in the pipelines, waiting for release, gushes out as soon as the fire sprinkler opens up, spewing water so forcefully on the flames that, in most cases, they're extinguished immediately. Though heat activates a sprinkler, smoke does not, which is a good thing, as smoke often travels to areas of a building that are not affected by or at risk of a fire. If an errant sprinkler does go off, it can significantly add to your fire sprinkler cleanup efforts. 

Because sprinklers respond immediately, they can help contain an inferno and even extinguish it entirely. This can not only reduce the amount of property damage, but it can also save lives. 

Misconceptions Regarding Sprinkler Systems

A lot of people are hesitant to install fire sprinklers in their buildings because of a few unprecedented misconceptions. Some such misconceptions include the following: 

• Fire sprinklers are prone to accidental activation. 
• Smoke often activates sprinklers. 
• All of a building's sprinklers activate at once. 

The above misconceptions are dangerous, as they prevent building owners from investing in the necessary safety equipment. Don't be fooled by such myths, and talk to your SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge team about the benefits of a fire sprinkler system, how they actually work and why your building needs one.

Best Tools in the Restoration Business

Call us today 225-753-3434, we are here to help!

Right tool for the job

Proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing the damage expense during a fire or water loss. When time matters, technology and equipment must be counted on to perform. Your SERVPRO of East Baton professionals will answer your call with rapid action and a full arsenal of drying equipment. 

Here are a few tools used by SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge professionals:

  • Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards, and walls.
  • Moisture Meters are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate readings, allowing SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge professionals to monitor drying process.
  • Thermohygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge professionals can calculate and create an environment most conducive to drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized. 
  • Ultra Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. This device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products by creating a dense fog. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor-causing particles.
