How Experienced Licensed Mold Remediation Helps Bronx Homes  

You might have heard about several companies and mold teams throughout the Bronx and other boroughs of the city that can remove mold they find in your home. As good as this might sound, the full removal of mold colonization might be possible, but there is little that can get done to clean up naturally occurring spores in the environment. Part of the reason that organisms can develop so quickly in moist conditions is the presence of microscopic spores in every environment. We do not offer the misleading service of mold removal. Instead, we offer mold remediation with certified recovery specialists.  

With our Mold Remediation Contractor license #01295, Bronx residents and commercial properties have an accredited and experienced team of remediators and restorers that can help properties through every phase of mold recovery. Advanced equipment like HEPA filtration systems for vacuums and air scrubbers, mold removal equipment like soda or dry-ice blasters, and EPA-approved biocides are in our arsenal. We arrive, scope the job, erect containment barriers when needed, and get to work. 

There are areas where you can help to make this process less costly and time-consuming before our SERVPRO team first arrives at your property. Before the Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians arrive, homeowners can:  

Work to keep the people and pets within their home from encountering the mold colonization as much as possible. While remediation efforts can often occur and allow you to remain in the house, direct colony exposure can lead to potential health effects.  

Do Not remove the contents from adjoining areas and rooms in case you think that mold has already begun to spread to these areas. You can expand the infestations.

Turn off ventilating systems can decrease mold spores from circulating once released from active colonies. Often mold can result from unused ventilation devices in bathrooms and kitchens, so employing these elements--after mold remediation-- can reduce the presence of moisture and dampness thus helping to prevent future problems.  

It is essential not to attempt to remove mold colonization on your own. As tempting as it might be to scrub it clean with bleach, some varieties of mold can produce volatile organic compounds when combined with chlorine plus the water content in the bleach provides additional moisture for growth. 

There are multiple steps to recovering any property suffering from mold and microbial growth. Our SERVPRO of South Bronx team knows how to successfully remediate and make these damages “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (347) 590-9902.
