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.

Why Do You Need Mold Remediation for Microbial Threats in Your Great Neck Home? 

Our region is no stranger to higher humidity throughout the bulk of the year and more saturated soil around structures. This increased moisture threat can often develop into hazardous mold conditions without proper intervention and humidity regulation. While many Great Neck homeowners have taken to installing permanent appliances like dehumidifiers in their basements or attic spaces, those that do not might combat mold growth when moisture levels rise above 60% in the house. 

What Can You Expect from Remediation? 

Remediation differs from mold removal in that technicians are not working to eliminate every spore in the household. In nearly every environment, mold spores exist in a non-threatening manner. When moisture conditions pass a threshold, and organic surfaces and matter exist as a food source for colonization, mold becomes a likelihood. Remediation seeks to remove the cause of the persistent moisture that allowed colonization and to eliminate the active colonies so that they are no longer a health threat to those exposed.

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.
