Beekman, NY Mold Damage Remediation
How Quickly Can Mold Impact Beekman Homes?
In moist conditions, mold and microbial threats can develop in as little as 48 hours for Beekman homes and businesses. As challenging as these fungal colonies might ultimately be, you might not know that they exist right away. In some cases, environmental testing is necessary to determine the concentration of mold spores through air sampling. This testing might be vital where 'dirty air' could exist in medical facilities nearby, such as Saint Francis Hospital or Westchester Medical Center. This procedure can indicate a likelihood of microbial threats and professional mold remediation companies like our SERVPRO team can begin with corrective actions.
What Does Mold Remediation Look Like?
Remediation focuses on the removal of active colonization, and this can happen in many different ways. From soda blasting painted block walls in Arlington Central School District buildings to sanding wood framing exposed after controlled demolition in public buildings like the Beekman Library, this process can look different for every damaged building. In cases where too much damage has occurred to porous materials like drywall and carpeting, these materials must get removed and discarded by our mold contractors.
Long-Term Mold Damage Repairs
While we replace removed materials, homes and municipal buildings like the Beekman Town Hall require permanent preventative measures. This process might be repairing damaged walls in your basement after the flooding of Fishkill Creek or installing better ventilation for the property to keep airflow consistent enough to prevent threatening mold development.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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) 635-4550
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 Beekman, 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
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
SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess 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.
