Mold Remediation in Staten Island Demands Skill

Mold is a troublesome problem that many property owners face. It can ruin your property. When you notice a mold infestation, performing thorough and prompt restoration is vital to prevent further damage and mitigate its effects.

You can trust SERVPRO® to perform mold remediation in your Staten Island residence. Mold remediation is a meticulous process that requires attention to detail. Our technicians can help you safeguard your home and save money as well as time. Our remediation process includes several steps, namely:

  • Assessment
  • Containment 
  • Water damage remediation 
  • Mold clean-up
  • Air filtration 
  • Repairs and restoration

One of the initial steps that our SERVPRO technicians can take is to perform a comprehensive assessment and inspection to identify all the areas with mold growth, including hidden spaces. We can use a borescope to look out for damage in areas that are hard to reach without compromising the structure of a building. A borescope is a digital camera attached to snake-style tubing. With the camera, we can check for damage under cabinets, behind closed walls, under stairwells, and in HVAC ductwork, among other hard-to-get places. Our inspection process enables us to identify the kind of mold present and the extent of contamination. 

Mold spores can spread to uncontaminated areas during remediation. To prevent this, our SERVPRO technicians can use negative air pressure machines and plastic sheeting to create a controlled environment. The containment isolates the affected zones, prevents cross-contamination, and makes the remediation process more manageable. 

Mold grows well in damp environments. Therefore, addressing the underlying cause of moisture is essential. We can eliminate moisture and dry the affected areas using air-moving and dehumidifying equipment so that mold does not reoccur after remediation. 

Our SERVPRO team can also clean non-porous materials like metal and glass to eliminate mold. We can remove and discard porous materials like carpet and drywall. We use specialized cleaning techniques and agents to clean and sanitize affected areas. After eliminating mold, the affected areas may need repairs and restoration. This step may include replacing ruined flooring, insulation, drywall, and other building materials.
