Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Mold is an often-underrated threat to many of the homes and businesses throughout our service area. With the proximity to so many bodies of water and an area with an already elevated humidity level throughout the year, meeting the conditions to facilitate mold growth is much simpler than many property owners may believe. Addressing these concerns is nothing for home or business owners to handle on their own, as mold can come with health and structural risks. Leave it to our trained Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Our professionals also have Interactive Occupational Training (IOT) certifications for advanced mold scenarios.

Providing customers with a knowledgeable staff is only part of what the situation needs, however. These same responding professionals come equipped with OSHA approved cleaning agents and products, air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators, and HEPA vacuums for containment and indoor air quality threat reductions.

Homes from Woodcliff Lake to River Vale battle mold growth regularly, so let our SERVPRO of Paramus team help you through every phase of recover.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
