Jamesville, NY Mold Damage Remediation
The area is full of nature reserves and protected properties like the Clark Reservation State Park and Fiddlers Green Park, showcasing Onondaga County’s natural beauty. However, when nature becomes part of your home through mold growth, you want professionals who respond fast to help.
Choosing the Right Mold Remediation for Jamesville Properties
Remediation is never the same between one property and the next, and in many cases, might differ from one surface in a home to another. We use many types of mold removal strategies beginning with surface cleaning and continuing to more aggressive measures for threats like:
- Bathroom mold removal
- Basement mold remediation
- Attic mold removal
- Post-flooding mold remediation
When Will Repairs and Controlled Demolition Be Needed in Jamesville Homes?
Controlled demolition is one of the final levels of mold remediation possible in homes and businesses. When other options have been attempted, or the infestation of organisms is too extreme, we can discard the affected hosting materials. Having licensed contractors means seamlessly repairing the home after remediation efforts are complete.
Removing Malodors with Remediation Strategies
Harsh odors are a typical byproduct of active mold organisms growing in a household, indicating colonies have formed. However, these odors can linger behind, even becoming trapped in porous building materials. We utilize sealing products and deodorization tools to manage musty malodors.

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 - (315) 446-8776
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. 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 Jamesville, 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
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re 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.
