Hyde Park, NY Mold Damage Remediation
Why Is Mold Such a Continuous Threat for Hyde Park?
With our position in the Hudson River Valley and our humid continental climate in Hyde Park, the production and facilitation of mold and microbial threats is likely for many structures. Poor ventilation and inadequate drying can often be why historic properties in various districts, such as Isaac Roosevelt's house or the Haviland Middle School, can fall victim to spreading organisms. Addressing these concerns requires professional mold remediation companies like our SERVPRO team.
Can Mold Get Removed from Hyde Park Homes?
Mold removal is a blanket statement that can often be misleading. Our SERVPRO team offers remediation for microbial growth in homes and businesses of Dutchess County, which seeks first to remove colonization from surfaces and contents where the organism has become a threat. With properties in our area like the Presidential Library and Museum and the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site, the elimination of these colonies can protect exhibits and irreplaceable artifacts in these educational venues.
Can SERVPRO Provide Mold Damage Repairs?
The need for construction and repairs is two-fold after mold disasters impact properties ranging from the thousands of homes in the city to the structures of the main campus of the Culinary Institute of America. First, we seek to repair any structural damage the mold exposure has caused to the building by replacing discarded materials. We can also help with long-term solutions to reduce recurrences through permanent dehumidification and water diversion.

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 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 Hyde Park, 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
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Hyde Park, 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.
