Mold Can Grow in Your West Hurley Home Even in The Coldest Temperatures of the Winter!

11/20/2020 (Permalink)

Black, brown and gray mold spore colonies on a white wall in the lower corner of a room. Confused about mold? Call the local pros in mold remediation, SERVPRO of Kingston/New Paltz!

Sometimes you’ll be able to see it, sometimes it can be hiding behind a wall, but mold has a smell that is always distinctive. At times, all you might be able to notice is an earthy, dirty, “off” type odor where it most definitely shouldn’t be. However, mold growth, or microbial growth ALWAYS stems from water damage. So, if you’re able to pinpoint an area where there might be a leak or perhaps an older damage that got out of hand, get to the source of water and have that repaired as soon as possible.

Mold can’t be remediated until its environment is no longer inviting. Though these mold spores naturally occur in the air, an ideal place for it to thrive is damp and above 55 degrees so a basement, crawl space, attic, hot water heater area, toilets, sinks and bathtubs or near a pipe behind a wall, are all good places to start looking. Even circumstances like previous ice damming or a burst pipe can lead to mold growth if the area of damage wasn’t dried out properly to start. No matter the type of structure, commercial or residential, mold can be a nuisance. Our mold remediation technicians see cases of mold throughout every season in the Hudson Valley, it’s not just an issue in the warmer temps.

Contact your insurance company as soon as you notice it too, there are damages that may be covered under your policy depending on the source. Coverage varies from policy to policy and company to company so speaking with your local insurance agent should get you a direct answer whether to file a claim or not. Regardless of that, we’ve got the trained and certified mold remediation experts to handle any type of microbial growth condition you’re facing.

Not all mold is the same, there are distinct characteristics to each spore and therefore to its treatment for removal. A mold assessor, or mold tester is the best way to pinpoint the type of mold you’re dealing with and from there we will come up with the best strategy to remediate it from your home or business.
