Mold Remediation Tactics by Restoration Professionals

Mold and water damage go hand in hand, especially in wet, high-traffic areas like residential bathrooms. Spores exposed to humid, warm environments with organic materials to consume can start spreading rapidly in as little as 24 to 72 hours. Worse still, untreated mold can impact air quality and create costly structural damage in a home.

When Teaneck properties need mold remediation, SERVPRO® technicians can render that service 24 hours daily. SERVPRO’s availability and flexibility in the face of disaster can minimize potential damage to a home caused by microbial growth.

How Water Damage Encourages Mold Growth

Mold proliferation in a residence thrives primarily on three factors:

  • Adequate moisture levels, ideally above 50% relative humidity (RH).
  • Organic material to consume, which helps spores grow and spread.
  • Sufficient temperatures, ideally above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Growth can accelerate significantly at higher temperatures.

However, mold does not necessarily go away when these conditions are no longer met. Spores can go dormant for long periods until the right conditions for growth reappear. This tendency to go dormant and resurface is why professional intervention is essential: specialized tools and training ensure that mold can be effectively reduced with minimal risk of resurgence.

SERVPRO Turns Around Bathroom Mold Damage

Say this mold is a small spot on the ceiling near a vent fan. SERVPRO can:

  • Mitigate water damage that encourages mold with careful demolition of wet drywall.
  • Containment procedures like personal protective equipment, temporary sealing of vents, and polyethylene sheeting are often used to accelerate cleanup without spreading spores. 
  • Spores can be collected with the help of negative air pressure and HEPA filter vacuums.
  • Drying procedures, sanitation with EPA-registered antimicrobials, and odor control procedures remove moisture and associated malodors.
  • Clean HVAC ducts, if necessary, and replace demolished drywall.

When homeowners need "Like it never even happened” remediation, they can call (201) 266-0482 for restoration services by SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood.
