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.

Addressing Mold Remediation in Your Home or Office

Black Mold can be one of the most destructive disaster situations that your structure can face because it is not always easy to detect. By the time the situation becomes clear, your entire house or building could be affected. Attic mold, often hidden, can be remediated by our mold specialists.

Meeting New York State Mold Removal Regulations

Beginning in 2016, New York State mandated that every mold remediation situation required two parties that worked independently from one another. While our SERVPRO professionals have the experience to help with the remediation and recovery of structural mold damage, another competent professional would handle assessment and documenting the mold damage. Why are these safeguards in place? This requirement has protected residents and business owners from getting taken advantage of by restoration and remediation companies upselling services that are not required. Once an assessor has documented the damage and set parameters of the work needing to get done, our mold specialists can get to 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.
