Mold Remediation and Restoration

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to start to form in your home or business. Mold can begin to spread throughout areas in as little as 48 hours. Since our Franchisees are in New York, we have to follow the new guidelines that went into effect in January 2016. If there are over 10 square feet of continuous mold on a property, you must hire a New York State Licensed Mold Assessor. This Mold Assessor is the person who tests the specific areas and base areas around the home including outside. The Licensed Assessor creates a Protocol for SERVPRO to know what areas need remediation and what needs to be done. This has helped eliminate customers being taken advantage of by restoration contractors doing more work than necessary. SERVPRO of North Orange County is here to help you through this process to ensure the mold is taken care of properly and follows the law. We have the expertise to explain the process to you so feel free to contact us even if you have questions about the process and are not looking for move forward with service.

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.
