SERVPRO Can Help and Remediate Mold Violations in New York City--Just Call Us!

Why SERVPRO of the South Bronx for Mold Remediation--General Contractor License #: 2077660-DCAMold Remediation Contractor License #: 01295

As a landlord or commercial property owner, it can be shocking to find out a tenant has filed a complaint regarding mold violation needs. It is vital to use the services of a professionally licensed remediator to address mold issues inside residences. Failure to do so adequately can lead to lawsuits filed against property owners in Housing Court or answering a complaint filed with the New York State (NYS) Department of Housing and Community Renewal, both of which are costly outcomes.

When SERVPRO of South Bronx handles mold violations for New York City properties, it starts with scoping the property to determine the cause of the colonies and identify the locations that require treatment. Mold is always a symptom of other issues such as poor ventilation, poor drainage, or undetected leaks.  

Why SERVPRO? We are a licensed Mold Remediator by the New York State Department of Labor- #01295. When a client requests assistance with answering a mold violation report with remediation, we arrive on site quickly and determine the violation classification level as A, B or C and work to ensure our efforts meet the standards for passing NYC mold inspections.

Once our technicians locate the affected areas in the property, we contain the infested areas to prevent the spread of spores to other parts of the building. We are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Specialists (AMRT), and we do not solely rely on antimicrobial solutions for mold as the basis of treatment. The remediation process includes fast drying the structure, removal of unsalvageable mold-damaged items from the property and using equipment such as HEPA filtered air scrubbers to capture airborne spores. For established colonies found on building materials such as wooden beams, we use a variety of mechanical removal techniques, such as soda blasting. Our General Contractor License #2077660-DCA allows us to rebuild the structure, "Like it never even happened."

Upon completion of the remediation efforts for the building, we give the property owner an itemized list including photos of the treatment for mold and colonies throughout the property. We also give a list of necessary repairs to restore the building to its preloss condition and prevent mold issues from occurring again. In many cases, we can perform these tasks.

Answer mold violation notices with professional mold remediation from SERVPRO of South Bronx. Contact licensed technicians at (347) 590-9902, we are available 24/7, and we have the expertise and equipment to handle any size remediation needs.
