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.

Is Mold Growing in Your Oyster Bay Home? 

As a humid continental climate, the Oyster Bay area battles a higher moisture content in the environment throughout the year. Understanding the likelihood of mold and microbial threats can help you remain more diligent about looking for signs and indicators that colonization might have started. Initial mold damage might not be apparent, which can lead homeowners to seek third-party mold inspectors and testing to identify what, if any, actions are necessary to remove microbial threats. 

Effective Remediation Strategies for Damaged Properties 

We follow New York's strict mold guidelines and begin remediation based on data collected by third-party vendors. We understand the importance of working quickly to resolve these threats, so drying out moisture in the affected area and remediating active colonization is vital. To accomplish this, our SERVPRO team can choose several potential remediation actions to gain control of a rapidly spreading organism in the house. Some of these remediation strategies include: 

  • Surface cleaning with antimicrobial products 
  • Sanding 
  • Soda blasting 
  • Abrasive cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition 
  • Deodorization 

Removing Lingering Odors 

Surprisingly, one of the most formidable obstacles for remediation professionals to overcome after addressing mold concerns is the lingering odors. We have multiple tools and products that can address these concerns, though deodorization cannot be effective until confirmation that any active colonization has been removed. Once these areas have been cleaned, we can utilize thermal fogging, hydroxyl generators, and other devices to filter out microbes and neutralize musty odors.

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.
