Have a mold infestation on a wall and ceiling in your Patchogue home? Let SERVPRO provide mold remediation

Use SERVPRO of Patchogue for Mold Remediation that Addresses the Underlying Cause of Microbial Infestation

Cleaning away mold with household items like vinegar or bleach is only a short-term solution, which often is doomed from the outset. Since moisture promotes and sustains mold growth in a property, it is essential to address the underlying issues causing fungal infestation. SERVPRO can help residents with:

  • Mold removal
  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold recovery

The goal of mold remediation in your Patchogue home is to address these underlying causes and, by doing so, prevent mold colonies from returning. According to the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), rapid drying and disposal of contaminated materials are the primary remediation methods. Chemical cleaners should only be applied in combination with the above methods.

  • Fast-drying can be achieved using desiccant dehumidifiers in combination with rapid-air movers.
  • Our technicians can demolish and safely dispose of contaminated materials in the home to limit infestation.
  • Phenolics, Chlorines, and Quaternary Compounds are some of the chemical agents used in combination with drying methods.

Prevent mold returning by using professional services. Contact SERVPRO of Patchogue at (631) 924-1801.
