Wyandanch, NY Mold Damage Remediation

With our position on the South Oyster Bay, many of the beachfront homes and port structures in Wyandanch are at the most significant risks for mold-inducing high moisture. Flooding is another considerable risk for the area, as much of Suffolk County would be devastated by Hurricane Sandy's immense presence in 2012, which ultimately resulted in many properties contending with secondary mold growth and damages from prolonged moisture exposure. Our mold remediation professionals at SERVPRO can help with a fast response to protect your property when you suspect microbial threats exist.

Remediation Strategies for Wyandanch Homes

Mold can spread quickly throughout a property, including areas like the HVAC system, the attic, and the basement. Comprehensive remediation solutions and mold damage repairs are vital to protect the property in the immediate sense, but also the long-term. With both experienced Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and a licensed general contracting division, we can manage the repairs, mold damage reconstruction, and controlled demolition necessary.

Peace of Mind for Homeowners

We understand how stressful microbial growth and mold can be in your home. We have multiple remediation approaches, including:

  • Demolition
  • Sanding
  • Surface Cleaning

One of the steps that differentiate our SERVPRO remediation from others is secondary testing after our restoration completes. Environmental testing ensures that we have addressed all active colonies and provides peace of mind to homeowners.

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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • 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.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (631) 319-1680

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Wyandanch, NY home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Wyandanch, NY home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
