Benefits of Working with Professional Mold Damage Remediators in Setauket
SERVPRO Professional Remediators Can Handle Any Size Mold infestation in a Setauket Property
A mold colony is a large group of individual organisms that combine to form visible colonies, both large and small. The hyphae penetrate the substate of organic material to absorb nutrients. Mold growth indicates potential damage to building material and contents. Delaying restoration increases the spread of mold to unaffected surfaces.
Reputable remediators like SERVPRO understand how quickly mold can spread. We know how to handle mold damage in Setauket homes effectively using innovative techniques and unique approved products. Our team includes AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians, certified by the IICRC—the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.
The Life Cycle of Mold
It comes in four stages including:
- Hyphae growth: Thread-like cells that feed on organic matter to grow into visible mold.
- Spore formation: Spores grow on the ends of hyphae cells.
- Spore dispersal: The spread of fully developed spores to other areas to restart the life cycle.
- Spore germination: Spores germination in a different location but with similar conditions.
The SERVPRO Mold Remediation Process
The removal of excess moisture from a leak or flood, including all visible standing water, is necessary after inspection and scoping of the mold damage. Mechanical means like scrapers and wire brushes pairing with a small portable HEPA vacuum can effectively remove visible colonies on exposed surfaces. Controlled demolition of building materials deemed non-salvageable is the last option, we strive to restore and not replace whenever possible. We can apply antimicrobial agents to exterminate organisms and spores. Each treatment stands on its own merits, and our skilled technicians have solutions.
