Water Intrusion in any Form Can Cause Health Effects. SERVPRO Can Return your New Orleans Home to a Sanitary Condition

New Orleans is perhaps the most famous region along the Mississippi River that boasts a vibrant nightlife, live music, and eateries. The 390,144 residents are spread across several unique neighborhoods, with the most sought after being the French Quarter. The French Quarter of New Orleans is where historic live jazz music venues are at their highest concentrations, while the streets are lined with alfresco eateries, bars, and nightclubs. Alongside its heaving tourist economy, the New Orleans port is one of the central entrance points into and out of the gulf coast region. Annual festivals such as the Mardi Gras are recognized globally, with millions of tourists flocking throughout the year. 

The wealth of New Orleans throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was primarily attributed to the Antebellum period. Widespread segregation between African-Americans and caucasian-Americans was common, while much of the slave trade was trafficked through New Orleans Ports and Docks. Despite many African-Americans leaving southern cities like New Orleans during the early twentieth century and the second world war, the town was still a key battleground during the civil rights era. Today, much of the celebrated parts of New Orleans are its ethnic diversity and the corresponding cultural festivals and entertainments.

  • Bourbon Street runs through the heart of the French Quarter and continues for thirteen blocks. Close to the Mississippi River, the street is the main attraction for tourists to the area, with famous live music venues running from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue.
  • The Mardi Gras is an important event for many late-night revelers in the US and across the world. In the five days leading up to the event, the population of New Orleans more than doubles. The vast street parade and party take place forty-seven days before Easter Sunday. 
  • Frenchmen Street and Jackson Square are two landmark sites within the much-vaunted French Quarter of New Orleans. Typically, the live venues here are less touristy than those found on Bourbon Street.

SERVPRO Can Cleanup Debris, Dirt, and Soiling in your New Orleans Home Following Water Intrusion

Exposure to water can loosen pre-existing dirt, dust, or grime in your home. The effect is a greywater contamination cleanup where technicians have to extract water and thoroughly clean and disinfect the area. Even in situations where water has intruded from a clean source, the development of microbes present in the water can cause deteriorating damage to your home and belongings. 

  • Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) can remove large or small bodies of water using industrial extraction equipment. 
  • Our range of cleaning products ensures that we can thoroughly clean and disinfect parts of the home to return them to a sanitary state. 
  • We apply antimicrobial chemicals to any affected areas to prevent the buildup of bacteria, viruses, or mold during and after service. 

Water intrusion can deteriorate quickly. Contact SERVPRO of The New Orleans West Bank for water cleanup at (504) 348-7526.
