MoldHold Is Your First Response to Mold Problems after Louisiana Flooding

LOUISIANA, August 27th, 2016

As homes, businesses, schools, churches, and government buildings are recovering from massive water damage due to flooding in Louisiana, workers will come across disaster relief problems.

Negative health effects resulting from airborne mold, asbestos and silica can be prevented by use of effective source containment. Source containment – the act of preventing potentially airborne toxins to the host surface – is the generally considered a first response step in the remediation and restoration.

Most toxins are inhaled not ingested. By quickly preventing mold, asbestos and silica from getting in the air, the site becomes safer for occupants and workers. By securing the site, the process of remediation becomes more manageable and less costly.

When applying source containment, be sure that it will stick to wet surfaces securely. This makes sure the toxin stay put and the containment barrier isn’t compromised during all the activity required to get the area back to normal.

MoldHold is the only tool specifically designed to quickly and easily trap airborne toxins at their source — wet or dry. Since 2010, remediation professionals around the world have used MoldHold to protect the health of their employees and clients as they deal with mold, asbestos, lead, and other contaminants.
