Mold Remediation Services in Brooklyn Properties

Mold problems in Brooklyn homes may seem harmless and manageable. However, it could turn out to be complicated if not mitigated sooner. Ceilings and walls are common spots for growth. This is because they are made of porous materials, and porous surfaces readily absorb and retain moisture, thus offering a conducive living environment. Knowing the signs and quickly reacting can help prevent further mold contamination in your home.

Sometimes it is better to leave mold removal work in your Brooklyn home to experts. On your own, the risks and challenges are significant. Reaching the ceiling is not easy, which means it requires appropriate equipment. Also, this kind of work needs protective gear, tools, and techniques. SERVPRO eases the process compared to dealing with the problem on your own. And with lasting results.

Actions that can prevent mold formation on ceilings and walls

  • Inspect plumbing and gutters
  • Improve ventilation Perform regular house checks
  • Cleaning mold off your ceiling

To control mold growth, we start with controlling moisture. So it is imperative to identify the water sources in your home and remove or manage them; otherwise, the problem is likely to recur. Mold damage is often visible in damp unventilated rooms. Our SERVPRO crews check for roof and plumbing systems problems like leaks from damaged pipes and gutters.

Containing the affected area using plastic sheets is essential as it helps prevent cross-contamination. After setting up the containment, our SERVPRO teams open the ceiling to expose the mold-damaged framing for cleanup and other restoration steps. Restoration may involve applying an antimicrobial product, replacement, and humidity control.
