SERVPRO Carefully Manages Teaneck Mold Remediation

There is plenty of available misinformation regarding the destructive nature of a mold infestation. However, the panic you might feel after noticing dark patches and other signs of contamination in your Teaneck home can interfere with the mold removal process. 

Letting a professional handle mold removal at your Teaneck property is one easy way to iron out doubts or tone down the unnecessary apprehension about microbial growth's effects on your property and contents. SERVPRO evaluates the situation and provides clear information while developing a sound mitigation plan. 

Professional assistance alleviates worries of:

  • Immediate further degradation of belongings
  • Severe structural deterioration
  • Mold spread patterns

With proper management of the remediation, it is possible to remain in your home throughout the process. Our SERVPRO technicians set up airtight containment barriers separating clean rooms from the contaminated areas.

Structural Deterioration From Mold

Mold eats into materials causing deep rot. The problem starts at the surface when moisture-activated spores sprout. Later, root-like hyphae develop, spreading the issue deeper, leading to structural degradation of organic materials. The process takes time, so you cannot expect dramatic changes immediately after you notice signs of an infestation. Therefore, it is better to prepare well rather than take drastic remedial actions. SERVPRO technicians start with a thorough inspection of the affected areas before choosing a remediation approach.

Mold inspection methods begin with a visual check:

  • Drilling exploratory holes
  • Probing surfaces with equipment
  • Checking for hidden moisture

Since mold is contained in walls, ceilings, and even floor cavities, drilling holes in suspected areas and then using borescopes reveals the spread patterns. Compromised materials crumble when prodded, so a sharp tool can help determine the deterioration of wall or ceiling panels.
