Mahopac, NY Mold Damage Remediation
The Possibilities of Mold for Mahopac Homeowners
With so many water bodies throughout the Mahopac area, including Bloomer Pond and countless creeks and streams, flooding can be a persistent threat during the winter and summer seasons when Putnam County receives the highest percentages of annual precipitation. Mismanaged moisture and dampness can facilitate mold growth in as little as 48 hours, making it critical to secure professional mold remediation companies like our SERVPRO team to help. The presence of mold can be devastating to properties, especially historic sites like the Old Town Hall or current municipal buildings like the Carmel Town Hall or Mahopac Volunteer Fire Department.
What Can Be Done for Active Mold Colonies?
Remediation is a practical plan designed explicitly for the damaged property with colony removal steps and recovery options for deodorization and repairs. Whether it is the damp basement of a home off of Route 6 or retail shops and commercial properties like the Mahopac Village Shopping Centre or Mahopac High School, we have solutions ranging from antimicrobial solvents and detergents to sanding and media blasting. Only when materials are heavily compromised is controlled demolition chosen.
Mold Damage Repairs Prevent Recurrences
With in-house contractors and experienced remediators, we understand the measures that can get taken to remove moisture from areas of your property to prevent mold recurrences. From installing dehumidification equipment to permanent water diversion for facilities like Caremount Medical or the Mahopac Golf Club, we can often limit recurring mold concerns.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (845) 228-1090
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Mahopac, NY home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Putnam County will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
