Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Mold is not always treated with the urgency it should be. With the frequencies of this threat through Mill Basin and beyond, New Yorkers rely on a team that follows the state’s strict remediation guidelines without compromising in critical areas such as:

  • Mold removal
  • Deodorization
  • Attic mold cleanup
  • Mold prevention

Containing Mold Damage

Containment is a critical step to prevent the movement of mold spores to new areas of the house. Moist conditions create active mold environments, allowing microbes to seat into hosting materials and begin developing a destructive colony. Physical barriers constructed by our team prevent this movement and provide more efficient pathways to drying and environmental moisture management.

What Remediation Options Work Best?

There is no set remediation plan for homes and businesses after mold development and exposure. Often, our professionals begin with surface treatment solutions to eliminate active colonization on the visible layer of building material. When colonization moves beyond this superficial damage, more aggressive cleaning and mold removal methods are necessary to help. We have abrasive tactics like media blasting and sanding to regulate the spread of mold and eliminate the entire hyphae of the organism.

Can SERVPRO Perform Needed Mold Damage Repairs?

Because mold is destructive to building materials, repairs are often necessary. We can perform needed controlled demolition, repairs, reconstruction, and build-back services with a contractor license. Our experienced professionals conduct careful inspections of the damaged areas to determine when this post-remediation reconstruction might be needed.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
