Migrating Mold Damage in Queens Basements

SERVPRO® Remediates Mold Infestations

Mold can rapidly spread to other parts of your home if the conditions are right. It grows in damp places and can be hard to detect. A wet basement can affect the rest of your home. So, it's important to address mold issues immediately to prevent it from spreading.

Overcoming mold damage in a Queens basement is about understanding how to contain the organisms. Spores, microscopic seeds, are carried by air and circulated to other house areas via the HVAC ducts. This movement also happens when warmer air rises (pushed up by cooler air), so they are carried to the higher floors of the house. Spores attach themselves to clothing, fabrics, and skin. Therefore, traffic in and out of this lower level likely carries the spores to other rooms.

Removing Mold from Queens Basements

SERVPRO is the ultimate solution for mold remediation, removal, and repair needs. Our experienced professionals will immediately identify the mold's source and take corrective measures. We will evaluate the scope of the damage entirely by inspecting all the rooms in your house. If the problem is still limited to the basement, we will seal all the cracks in the foundation and fix any holes to prevent mold from spreading.

Our SERVPRO technicians take mold growth seriously. We replace and insulate the HVAC air filters and ducts if necessary to ensure your home or business is safe and mold-free. We work against future issues by treating:
