Our Certified Experts Respond Quickly To Resolve Mold Damage Issues In The Bronx
Skilled Handling of Commercial Mold Damage Helps Save Bronx Apartment
Mold can develop any time there is excess moisture in a building that goes unchecked for some time. Simple oversights such as turning off the heat when the property is unoccupied can worsen the situation. For an apartment unit in the Bronx, a leak in a water heater that went unnoticed for over a week led to widespread mold development, necessitating the input of commercial mold damage professionals. We are a licensed mold remediation contractor, License #: 01295.
Unlike other commercial mold damage incidents in the Bronx, which are localized in a particular section within a unit, the combined factors of abundant moisture in the air, and extended exposure spanning a couple of days spread the mold growth almost over the entire property. Our SERVPRO technicians noticed mold on the wall surfaces and behind the wall. The porous nature of drywall meant that even a thorough cleaning and application of antimicrobial agents could not guarantee the elimination of mold colonies from the drywall. As a licensed general contractor, license number #: 2077660-DCA, we had no problem tearing down the affected areas to remove mold.
Apart from the walls, other sections of the property, such as the floors, were also affected. Pulling up the carpet revealed the leaking water soaked everything, including the pad. Our SERVPRO team opted to remove the different assemblies in the house, including the carpet, pad, and cabinets for better access to the black mold. It also created access for dehumidifiers and other equipment to dry the main structural parts.
Mold colonies leave various residues on the surfaces they affect. Cleaning such residues and killing spores is one way to stop immediate recurrence. Our team used a HEPA vacuum to remove debris from the walls, ceiling, and floors. We then applied an antimicrobial sealer to all surfaces, including structural supports such as studs, to help destroy all microbes that developed from exposure of organic materials to moisture because of mold damage. After that, we could reinstall panels and refinish the apartment unit, eliminating signs of mold infestation, "Like it never even happened."
Mold can turn into a nagging issue if left unaddressed. Call SERVPRO of South Bronx at (347) 590-9902 to help. We are available 24/7.
