Mold Remediation and Restoration

Mold is among one of the most dangerous conditions to persistently become exposed to because many homeowners might not realize a problem even exists. Without putting eyes on active colonization or smelling a musty odor typical to the production and spread of these conditions, colonies can continue to grow and thrive unabated. Our SERVPRO professionals offer thorough and honest inspections of your property to help determine if mold remediation is necessary. 

Homes from Bedford to Somers feature subterranean levels and cellars, all of which remain persistently susceptible to groundwater, leaching of moisture through concrete flooring, and hydrostatic pressure against blockwork of the foundation. In addition to our unique and effective removal strategies, our SERVPRO professionals also seek to provide lasting solutions to prevent recurrences. 

Mold is not a situation that you should underestimate or attempt to remove on your own. Let our professional remediation experts help to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
