Mold Inspections Can Require Testing and Lab Work

Visually inspecting your Smithtown property for unwanted and developing damage should be a normal event that occurs regularly and always after any water leaks or other situations that cause elevated humidity. Mold multiplies at a rapid pace, easily overtaking obscure areas. When our preliminary mold inspection reveals possible mold activity, many customers request further testing. Such additional testing requires an independent industrial hygienist (IH).

After we perform a mold inspection in Smithtown, SERVPRO works with an IH who provides an independent assessment for the customer. The IH can perform a detailed evaluation using additional methods to determine the mold varieties within a building or house. We then follow their written directives as we remediate the structure. Mold is not always bad or causes health effects, but mold and spores always exist inside your property. The only exceptions to this are specially built ‘clean rooms’ used in certain industrial settings. Even the cleanest medical environment harbors mold particles.

What causes problems with the overgrowth of mold in our living spaces include:

  • Deterioration of the surface material generated by the colony growing into and eating away at it,
  • Stained areas left behind on more durable surfaces (porcelain, ceramic), and
  • Odors that can transfer to clothing, upholstery, and other textiles.

When SERVPRO mold remediation specialists perform work related to the mold found in your property, we do so in a manner that protects everything from further destruction. We might offer to store items in our warehouse to prevent contamination. Our air scrubbers work quickly and keep up with any debris thrown into the air as we perform abrasive cleaning, dry-ice blasting, and controlled demolition of mold-destroyed areas.

After removing damaged materials, we always work with the customer on rebuilding the damaged areas using the most economical ways. 

Before we finish, we do everything to bring it all back to the same condition as before, “Like it never even happened.” Call SERVPRO of Greater Smithtown at (631) 265-9200 for the mold inspection and remediation your property needs.
