Mold Removal Specialists Syosset
Mold Detection & Removal Professionals
As a type of fungus, mold can grow both indoors and outdoors. While mold can be beneficial for the environment because it breaks down both plant and animal matter, it can be harmful for interior structures because it grows nearly anywhere that has both moisture and organic matter. Usually, it thrives in humid areas or where there are signs of water damage.
Basements, bathrooms, and crawl spaces are some of the most common places to find mold growth. A leaky pipe or roof can also harbor mold spores as well. Mold can also be a byproduct of a natural disaster like flooding. If a major storm deposits standing water in your household, mold can take hold very quickly without effective remediation.
Mold and Your Health
Once you can spot signs of mold on wood or drywall, you already have a mold problem. The difficulty is that mold may grow inside duct work or behind walls for a long time before you ever see it. An elevated mold count inside your house can lead to a number of health problems such as eye and throat irritation, wheezing or coughing, rashes, and recurring headaches. Things can be even more problematic for people with respiratory problems like asthma or emphysema. At Mold Authority, our goal is not just to find the source of the problem but to remove it so it will not return.
Call us today at 646-600-MOLD if you suspect mold growth and allow Mold Authority to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Lead Inspection and Testing
If you believe that you may have lead in your home or work environment, Mold Authority’s lead inspection and testing process can spot any lead issues and suggest appropriate solutions. For many years, lead was commonly used in products such as gasoline, paint, and water pipes before we knew how dangerous it could be.
Although it is now well known as an environmental pollutant, we are still exposed to lead in food, drinking water, deteriorating paint, dust, and contaminated soil. In fact, lead-based paint is the main source of lead exposure in the United States today. Not only does it affect nearly every system in the body, but lead can be especially harmful to developing fetuses and young children.
Water and Flood Damage Mitigation
Mold Authority’s water damage restoration begins with a visual inspection of the residence from the attic to the basement including HVAC ducts and any other areas mold might be present. After a home or building is flooded, we look at any and all areas that were exposed to water. Our inspection also involves taking outdoor and indoor air and surface samples to send to the lab for testing. The lab results will tell us what type of mold it it and whether it it toxic. They can also tell us how much mold is present and why. Mold Authority will then make recommendations based on these findings.
