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.

Mold can be an underappreciated threat to Rockland County homes. With the expected storm damage many structures endure and higher humid conditions with so many creeks, streams, and water bodies moving through our service area, the concern of microbial and fungal colonization are ever-present.

How Does Mold Removal Begin for Area Properties?

The initial steps of mold removal and mold remediation involve a careful assessment of the property and its affected materials. Spreading organisms target organic matter and can feed on these materials until they degrade beyond the point of preservation. As such, our responding technicians need to provide efficient and focused mold removal solutions to protect as much of the building materials impacted as possible. Surface treatments are often most heavily considered, including sanding and antimicrobial cleaning. Our mold specialists can help with: 

  • Black mold
  • Mold remediation
  • Attic mold
  • Basement mold remediation
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Mold specialists

When Are Black Mold Damage Repairs Needed?

Mold removal is often not the full extent of your property's needs after these organisms spread throughout the structure. As challenging as reconstruction and repairs might seem, we have a general contractor license to help with black mold damage repairs necessary after remediation completes. Our mold inspection process can identify where compromised building materials exist and what must get discarded and ultimately replaced. We must also fixate on the necessary repairs to prevent further water penetration and moisture concerns that facilitated mold growth initially.

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.
