Organic Matter can Host Mold Colonies in Great Neck Properties and Ruin Materials Without Fast Remediation Solutions

Understanding what to expect from mold damage in your home can help those who might underestimate the presence of these organisms. When mold spreads through a property, many types of organic materials can become hosts.

Mold Inspections Identify Targeted Materials

Specific materials could be impacted by mold damage in your Great Neck home. Some of these include:

  • Drywall – Drywall is among the most common building materials for wall systems. This sheetrock can be particularly susceptible to hosting mold colonies.
  • Carpets – Carpeted floors are an everyday staple in many modern homes, and these fibrous materials are capable of supporting mold colonies when moisture becomes a threat.
  • Hardwood – Wood accents like trim, cabinets, and flooring can support mold organisms when these colonies continue to spread in a damaged area.
  • Fabrics – Cloth and fabrics are present in drapes, clothing, and upholstery. All of these materials can support mold colonies and absorb effects like harsh odors.

Content Relocation and Cleaning Services 

The impact of the mold on your personal belongings and furniture also needs considering. In many cases, homeowners believe these items to be as important as the property's structural integrity, so this becomes a focal point for responding remediators to protect these items when possible. Often, this means relocating contents to our nearby facility for cleaning and safekeeping until mold removal completes.

Understanding how certain building materials and your contents in the house can become affected by migrating mold damage is essential to convey the urgency of remediation. Our professionals can respond fast when you believe mold damage exists with thorough inspections and mitigative strategies to reduce loss.
