Bellmore, NY Mold Damage Remediation

With the position on the South Shore of Long Island, the community of Bellmore is surrounded by water. With so many groundwater concerns for subterranean levels of houses in the town and even many of the hotels along Sunrise Highway and Merrick Road, it is not a far stretch that many of these same properties contend with mold growth. If you suspect that mold colonies exist, their presence could cause health effects for those exposed. You should address these concerns right away with professional mold remediators like our SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh team. 

How Can You Get Rid of Mold That Already Exists?

Effective remediation strategies vary based on the damage that exists to hosting materials and these colonies' position. If cost-effective, as it might be for properties like Bellmore Merrick Medical and John F. Kennedy High School, controlled demolition can discard impacted materials and make a recovery focused on reconstruction. Other remediation approaches focus on surface treatments like abrasive cleaning and antimicrobial products. These strategies might be ideal for many of the single-family Nassau County homes. 

Can SERVPRO Handle Remediation Reconstruction?

With mold reconstruction professionals on our roster, we can do more than controlled demolition. When early remediation completes, these building trade professionals can reconstruct and replace discarded materials. This fast transition can help venues like Vamps Club and long-standing institutions like the Bellmore Memorial Library get back up and running quickly.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; 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 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 - (516) 809-9600

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 carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.

Step 3: Mold Containment

Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help 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 Bellmore / Wantagh 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

Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
