The Importance of Mold Inspection in Tarrytown Properties
SERVPRO Confirms Mold Damage Effects in Tarrytown Homes
Among the damages that can affect homes, mold stands out because of its unique characteristics. First, factors you may consider harmless such as moisture interacting with the numerous organic materials in the house, cause the contamination. It also tends to thrive in concealed areas. Mold inspection is a reliable way to identify the contamination source and spread patterns at your Tarrytown home.
Because of the clear signs contamination usually exhibits, the primary goal of mold inspection at your Tarrytown home should not be to identify whether there is mold. Even a casual observation can reveal discolored patches, flaking paint, and musty odors that indicate the likelihood of microbial growth. An inspection helps reveal the best course of action to contain growth and restore the affected materials.
Helpful actions against mold
- Controlled demolition
- Dry cleaning
- Application of antimicrobials
Before taking any corrective action, understanding the contamination dynamics is essential. Since moisture is the main contributing factor, it is vital to establish possible moisture sources and whether they are active. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced tools to inspect suspected areas to identify leak points and moisture spread patterns. Moisture meters and thermal cameras are convenient for this purpose.
Inspection Eases Mold Remediation
Mold readily develops in wall and ceiling cavities. Remediation in such cases requires demolition to remove the panels on the surface and filler materials such as insulation within the cavities. Demolishing and reconstructing entire rooms is costly and time-consuming. However, if such demolition is restricted only to affected areas, the inconveniences and costs are minimized. Our SERVPRO technicians can take the necessary actions to facilitate targeted remediation by identifying the affected areas and opening them up for cleaning. Drilling small exploratory holes is one non-invasive way to confirm where the colonies have spread.
Useful equipment for such remediation
- Drilling equipment
- Negative air pressure machines
