Providing Brooklyn Homeowners with Swift Cleanup

Mold damage is one of the largest secondary disasters homeowners have to endure. These microbes are a necessary part of many ecosystems and aid with the decomposition of organic matter. However, many home materials, including drywall, wallpaper, and carpeting, can turn into food to be broken down by their digestive enzymes. 

Brooklyn mold remediation technicians at SERVPRO have the equipment necessary to turn a home around after microbial growth has infiltrated a residence. The crew can do everything, from inspection and cost estimates to rebuilding and odor control. This comprehensive service ensures that properties and occupants get high-quality professional results that adhere to restoration industry standards. 

What to Look for in a Professional Mold Remediation Company

Homeowners seeking out effective local mold restoration companies should look for the following qualities: 

  • Does the company promise "mold removal" or mold remediation? This distinction might not seem significant, but total mold removal is impossible. Meanwhile, microbial remediation tackles moisture and other causes for mold spread and the spores themselves.
  • Does the company ensure improved indoor air quality? Professional restorers like SERVPRO often use HEPA filter air scrubbers and negative air machines to control the travel of spores and ensure that technicians can remove more of them with ease. A mold restoration company should strive to clean a home's air and other damages related to microbes.
  • Does the company provide copies of cost estimates and cleanup plans? These documents are crucial for any insurance claims that a homeowner might file, but they also provide a basis for transparency and accountability.

SERVPRO does all of this and more for homeowners, no matter when disaster strikes. 

Around-The-Clock Emergency Mold Cleanup Services for Homes 

Extensively-trained SERVPRO crews deploy effective restoration tools 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This service is also available over holidays and weekends to ensure that homes receive the care needed to minimize damage and maximize repair potential for structures and contents when feasible. 

Mold is typically a secondary disaster that usually stems from water damage. One of the most crucial steps to remediation is understanding how moisture enables mold and how easily microbes can spread in the right environment.

  • Mold can come in from anywhere, as it exists indoors and outdoors. Even pets or residents can bring it home unintentionally. It can then settle on other surfaces and start proliferating in earnest under the right conditions, which often begin with water damage.
  • Water saturation from pipe leaks, floods, or fire suppression starts within minutes for most surfaces in a given home. Porous and organic materials like sheetrock, insulation, and wood are among the most vulnerable items enabling mold growth.
  • Moisture can start spreading in as little as 24 to 48 hours after water damage starts and typically begins behind walls and other surfaces. It can become a more severe issue of contamination that can heavily damage structural materials and belongings within a week or more after damage occurs.

SERVPRO restoration services for microbes include moisture mitigation, sanitation with EPA-registered biocides, demolition of unsalvageable materials, odor removal with commercial-grade foggers, and build-back services like drywall and carpet installation.
