Preserving the Contents of a New Milford Home After Mold Damage

Many New Milford homeowners do not understand the debilitating effects of fungal growth to their property and its contents. While many can appreciate how these situations could weaken their structural components or even cause potential health effects to the occupants of the house, an often-overlooked element is an effect that a thriving colony can have on contents throughout the affected area. With softer materials of organic composition, the active spores in the damp area of your property can come to rest on items within the area and cause irreparable damage over a brief period.

When calculating mold damage in New Milford homes, our professionals must determine the spread of the organism throughout the affected area and limit this movement. One of the best ways for our team to accomplish this slowing of the progress is through a combined effort of drying out the area and isolating the affected materials with the use of our purifying equipment like air scrubbers to catch spores traveling through the environment.

Our SERVPRO Contents Department is part of the mitigation team dispatched to a mold damage emergency. We work efficiently to determine which items, furniture, and materials remain at risk of mold growth and exposure by remaining on the premises. The at-risk contents get removed by our technicians and taken to a safe location nearby for focused cleaning, disinfection, and deodorization efforts.

Once the mold colonies have gotten removed in the affected areas of your home and the area has gotten sufficiently dried to prevent further mold growth, restoration work can begin on the damage caused by the organism. Often this includes reconstruction and extensive cleanup. After the completion of this step, removed items from your property can get returned to their original positions.

Mold growth can be very damaging to your home and its contents. Trust in our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood mold remediation specialists to arrive quickly to preserve the items and the materials in your home that can get saved. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (201) 266-0482.
