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.

Removing Mold Colonies and Keeping Your Queens Home Safe 

Mold can be a challenging presence in Queens homes and businesses, especially when considering the potential health effects that exposure can cause. It is vital to get competent remediation starting immediately with the spreading organism affecting more and more surfaces throughout the property. While it is impossible to remove mold from your house entirely, as spores exist naturally in almost every environment, these remediation tasks can remove active colonization and present threats to the occupants of your home.

How Does Remediation Work? 

Remediators have the specific job of removing active organisms in the house and returning your property to its pre-mold condition. To accomplish this, multiple strategies and approaches can help. These choices get made based on the location of the discovered mold or the severity of the situation. From entirely non-invasive solutions for light mold damage to more permanent solutions, there are many remediation tactics available to our SERVPRO team, including:

  • Antimicrobial products
  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Sanding
  • Soda blasting
  • Controlled demolition

Full-Service Solutions for Your Queens Residence 

Many do not realize how destructive mold colonization can be until they witness structural deterioration or the degradation of their personal belongings. One of the advantages of choosing our professional remediators is the availability of an in-house team of licensed contractors for temporary structural solutions and full-scale build back and reconstruction as necessary. Regardless of how severe mold losses are, we can make it, “Like it never even happened.”

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.
