Remediation is a widely misunderstood concept, and one that requires expertise and extensive training to provide correctly. Our SERVPRO professionals have gotten accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT.) Many of these same technicians also have experience and endorsements for water loss recovery. Our remediation specialists can contain the mold organism and work to remove colonies actively growing in the damaged areas.
While we cannot remove all mold from your property, we have become a trusted name throughout New York by being a mold remediation contractor. With contaminants in place, we can begin tasks like sanding and soda blasting to remove colonies from materials and contents when possible. We also have a division of qualified contractors capable of completing controlled demolition and full-scale reconstruction when necessary. No matter how severe mold losses can become, our team can make it “Like it never even happened.”

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.
