Black mold, or any mold, can be found in homes nationwide. When it comes to black mold, people often get scared because they are unsure what it is, its effects, and how to get rid of it. All mold can potentially cause adverse health effects and should be treated carefully. Reach out to the professionals at AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland and Stamford to handle the problem for you.

Approaching Black Mold 

Black mold removal in White Plains homes begins with appreciating the situation. You must take immediate action and seek professional help for mold remediation. Trust a trained professional with the right tools and expertise to remove it from your home effectively and safely.

Step 1: Scoping and Assessment

Mold thrives in specific environments, and common culprits include leaky pipes, air conditioning systems, and roofs. Improper ventilation in bathrooms can also lead to mold issues. So, before attempting to get rid of black mold, it's crucial to identify what caused the problem and take steps to fix it.

Step 2: Mold Testing Seldom Required

Black mold removal is just that. Eliminating visible colonies with mechanical and chemical protocols. We can outsource actual mold identification, airborne spore count, and gaseous contamination to a third party. This licensed entity often provides an action plan for specific results. 

Step 3: Regulating Humidity

Drying all affected areas thoroughly using dehumidifiers and fans within the first two days after water damage occurs is crucial to prevent any further mold growth. 

Step 4: Removing the Black Mold

We use specialized equipment, materials, and methods to ensure a safe and thorough removal process. Typically, the first step is to contain the impacted area to prevent the spread of spores and debris, especially for a planned, controlled demolition of materials. Then, our professionals use HEPA air filters to clean the air and remove any airborne mold spores. Next, we safely dispose of any contaminated materials, such as drywall or carpet. Finally, we use proprietary cleaning solutions to clean and sanitize the affected area, ensuring we eliminate all presence of mold colonies.

Preventing Black Mold from Destroying Your Home 

We can prevent mold altogether if we take the necessary steps. It's better to be proactive than reactive when it comes to mold. Follow these suggestions to lessen the chances of mold growth in your home.

  • Maintain humidity levels below 50%. If your home doesn't have a ventilation system, ensure you plan to install one as soon as possible.

  • Fix water leaks promptly to control moisture and prevent damage.

  • Use exhaust fans in your home whenever you cook or take showers to remove moisture.

  • Properly treat new building materials used for construction to prevent the growth of fungi that can spread to your home.
