Mold and Mildew Removal and Remediation in Westchester NY

Mold and Mildew Removal and Remediation in Westchester NY

Frankly speaking remediation of a mold and mildew problem in a Westchester NY home can be a tough task.  Homes in Westchester range from the very large to the very old.  The county also has many rivers and streams that keep homes damp.Mold and mildew thrives in damp places. Often, the ideal breeding grounds are the insides of walls and ceilings exposed to a recurrent source of moisture from a roof or plumbing leak  Remediation if not done correctly can make the mold and mildew problem worse by spreading the contamination throughout the home.   The use of toxic chemicals to remove the black mold and mildew can also do more harm than good by replacing the mold problem with a toxic residue problem.  This can lead to an increase in allergy symptoms among the occupants, and cost you much more money because the area that needs to be cleaned up is so much larger.  Mold and Mildew is like a factory that produces billions of spores, The factory runs only when moisture is available. Eliminate the moisture, and you shut down the factory. The lesson in this is to take care of moisture problems when they happen and to keep your dehumidifier set at 55% to keep the home as dry as possible.  If however you think you may have a mold problem the best thing to do is to call a professional.  Fresh Maintenance can perform all kinds of mold and mildew testing even inside walls.   If you would like to schedule an inspection call us at (866) 543-3257.
