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.

The placement of communities like Tarrytown and Elmsford on the Hudson and other major water bodies leaves many properties contending with humidity and moisture concerns throughout the year. When mold results from prolonged dampness, our remediators arrive fast to help with: 

  • Mold removal
  • Attic mold removal
  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold damage repairs

Protecting the Structure Through Containment 

Microbial organisms spread rapidly in moist environments, making efforts like containment worthy efforts to prevent the situation from worsening. Containment is a direct measure our SERVPRO team can take to limit the movement and potential damage that mold spores can cause in a household. For effective management, physical barriers constructed with plastic sheeting and wood framing seal off work zones. 

Remediation Strategies for Damaged Homes 

Choosing the appropriate mold removal strategies is critical to protecting a home and its contents from more significant damage. In many cases, our team implements successful surface cleaning strategies to prevent widespread abrasive cleanings like media blasting and sanding. We have a considerable array of potential mold removal tactics. 

Are Mold Damage Repairs Necessary? 

Mold can have a destructive impact on the structure of your home. Hosting elements like drywall, wood, and other organic matter deteriorates as it becomes a food source for the spreading colony. Controlled demolition becomes a necessary means of remediation, requiring mold damage repairs and reconstruction of these compromised points. Our contractor license lets us complete this work.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.
