Baton Rouge Moisture Issues
Moisture causes millions in property damage every year, and can lead to serious problems such as structural instability and mold growth. AdvantaClean of Baton Rouge detects and removes moisture and it’s damage, and installs preventative measures to prevent future moisture buildup.
Improperly installed or vented appliances, structural issues, and loose or cracked plumbing fixtures can cause moisture to accumulate in floors, walls, and ceilings. Moisture is often commonly found in the following areas:
- Near Appliances
- Inside HVAC ducts
- Crawl Spaces
Moisture in Kitchens
If you operate a Baton Rouge, LA restaurant or other facility with a commercial kitchen, moisture is a serious risk. Commercial cooking appliances and dishwashing areas are major sources of steam that can accumulate on walls and ceilings. If left unchecked, moisture can damage your facility and lead to mold growth- a serious problem in a food preparation environment.
Moisture in Laundry Facilities
Laundry facilities are a common area for moisture buildup to occur due to the multitude of pipes, fittings, and appliances transporting water. A clogged drain, leaky gasket, or loose fitting can allow moisture to build up unnoticed. Moisture buildup is a serious problem in laundry areas because of the damage that it can do to walls, ceilings, and appliances. If moisture is left unchecked, it can lead to mold growth which can quickly spread to towels, sheets, and other laundry.
Moisture in Restrooms
Toilets, Sinks, and Showers in restrooms often contribute to moisture buildup in restrooms. This can lead to slips and falls in addition to property damage, leading to significant liability and repair costs.
Moisture in Residences
Moisture can accumulate in homes in a variety of areas. A leaking skylight or roof, an improperly weatherproofed window, and a leaky pipe area are common sources of moisture in homes across the United States. Moisture buildup can damage your home’s walls, floors, and furnishings, costing you thousands and leading to more serious problems.

Baton Rouge Basement Experts
If your home or commercial property has a basement, it’s important that you take care of it. Basements often contain boilers, generators, and other equipment along with wiring and plumbing. This equipment generates moisture, vibration, and heat, which can attract rodents, insects, bacteria, and mold while also placing stress on your building’s foundation.
It’s important to thoroughly inspect your basement at least once per year. AdvantaClean’s basement inspection services address many potential basement hazards, including:
- Plumbing & fitting condition
- Wiring condition and installation
- Weatherproofing condition and installation
- Foundation condition
- Pest & rodent presence & prevention
- Mold & moisture presence
An annual basement inspection from AdvantaClean of Baton Rouge ensures that a major part of your property is in good condition and free of environmental hazards. This keeps your building, safe and efficient while increasing air quality throughout your facility and reducing energy costs.
Baton Rouge Basement Cleaning
A dirty basement is a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Equipment, stored items, rodents, and insects all contribute to dirty basements in homes and commercial properties. Moisture, mold, bacteria, and rust all create a dangerous environment for people and equipment that can affect conditions throughout a property. AdvantaClean’s cleaning experts can make sure that your basement is clean, dry, and free of mold, moisture, and debris left behind by insects and rodents.
Basement weatherproofing is often ignored, but is a major source of building inefficiency. A basement can be a major point of heat transfer with the outside world, and groundwater can leak through foundation cracks and unsealed windows.
We can inspect your basement for any weatherproofing issues and recommend corrective measures where necessary. A properly weatherproofed basement protects your foundation, keeps your stored items safe, and prevents mold or bacteria from taking root inside.
Attic Issues and SolutionsMost homes and commercial properties have attics. Attics are home to insulation, pipes, wiring, and wood framing just like crawl spaces. And like crawl spaces, their dark, relatively undisturbed environment is a prime breeding ground for rodents and insects and is a potential breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Attics are also at risk for moisture buildup due to leaking plumbing or roofs.
It can be extremely difficult to access every corner of an attic. Most attics don’t have floors, and access is restricted by insulation, plumbing, and wiring. Because most attics are not regularly accessed, they are a prime target for insect and rodent activity, which can damage stored items, wood framing, wiring, and insulation. AdvantaClean technicians are trained in safely inspecting residential and commercial attics. By having your attic inspected each year, you protect your building and it’s occupants from the hazards that can develop in a neglected attic.
Attics don’t receive the same air circulation as the rest of a home or commercial property, and are often less insulated than occupied areas of a building. Throw in chewed eaves, vents, and insulation due to rodents, and an attic can become a major source of lost energy in any property. Our technicians are able to identify any potential weatherproofing issues with your attic and make recommendations on how you can more effectively weatherproof your attic, saving yourself thousands in unnecessary energy costs.
Dirt and debris can build up in any attic that isn’t regularly cleaned. Attics are often home to insects and rodents, who can leave food, excrement, and carcasses as evidence of their activity. This debris is a primary breeding ground for bacteria that can pose serious health risks to building occupants.
AdvantaClean of Baton Rouge can thoroughly clean your residential or commercial attic, preventing bacteria growth and discouraging future insect or rodent activity.
