Simple characteristics of mold
- Mold also grows in damp areas, but it is often the result of a more significant infestation that spreads from the surface and begins to grow inside and behind the material, like walls.
- Mold is usually fuzzy, although it can sometimes be slimy, and could grow in many colors including; black, white, brown, green, blue, yellow, and gray.
- Mold is usually responsible for many health problems, especially in children. Mold cannot be easily removed like mildew, because it will naturally grow back. This is why mold should be removed by a licensed trained professional.

Mold Remediation Process
STEP 1: Mold Source Identification & Isolation
The mold in your living space may be in a dormant state, just waiting for the right combination of moisture and heat to begin to grow and spread. We will find the source of the mold and isolate it to stop the spread.
STEP 2: Adjuster And Insurance Management
Our Insurance Adjuster will inspect and evaluate your property, documenting all items that have been damaged and recording any lasting harm to the structure of the home in order to evaluate the cost of mold remediation to get your maximum insurance coverage. We will dispose of items that cannot be recovered. Inventory items that can be salvaged by cleaning, packaging, and transporting the items to a climate-controlled facility for storage.
STEP 3. MOLD REMEDIATION
Our mold removal specialists will use the required techniques to remediate the mold whether it is a result of water damage, dampness or other. We use dry brushing techniques, wet vacuums, and powerful HEPA air scrubbers to capture and remove mold spores from the home. HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filtration removes 99.97% of all mold spores. We use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies, preventing new ones from forming.
NYTDR will clean and sanitize with “green safe” antimicrobial products. Our specialists will follow the IICRC guidelines (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) to complete a professional full mold remediation process.
STEP 4. TOTAL RESTORATION
We will restore your home to be mold free, as good as new, or even better! The crew – including highly-skilled craftsmen – will remain the same throughout the project, as will the project manager.
