Newfane, NY Mold Damage Remediation
Moist conditions are a staple of life in Niagara County. While cooler temps can be a staple of our summer months, this humidity can also facilitate mold growth in poorly ventilated portions of homes in Appleton, Ridgewood, and Corwin. Our remediation professionals are experienced and reliable with mold removal tactics for Newfane properties.
What Remediation Strategies Work for Newfane Homes?
Choosing the best remediation strategy is a product of mold inspections. This process determines what materials are affected and the appropriate response to clear these colonies and prevent irreparable harm. Solutions include:
- Surface cleaning
- Soda blasting
- Controlled demolition
- Black mold damage repairs
- Mold removal products
How Does Containment Benefit Damaged Newfane Properties?
When remediation processes are selected, few will be as effective as they could be without first containing the movement and migration of mold spores. Microbial colonies spread fast, so physical barriers can make a difference in keeping active spores and microbes in a designated area for efficient drying, cleaning, and mold removal.
Keeping Mold Out of Newfane Basements in the Future
It is often important to consider preventative measures to keep this mold from returning to areas like a vulnerable basement, attic, or crawlspace. Usually, this involves some degree of repairs and reconstruction, especially in the basement, where structural vulnerabilities can repeatedly lead to water penetration and mold development.

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 - (716) 299-0330
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 Newfane, 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
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums 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 North Niagara 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
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Newfane, NY home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
