Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

When SERVPRO of The Southtowns was founded over 25 years ago in Hamburg, we didn't know we were going to become the leading experts in mold remediation and restoration for all of Western New York. We just knew we had a passion for helping home and business owners with their mold problems.

Unfortunately, it doesn't take much for mold to form in the Buffalo area. A minor water leak, or even prolonged excess humidity, is enough to cause notable amounts of mold to form in your basement, in your attic, and everywhere in between.

Mold is more than just an eyesore. It can produce allergens and irritants and can lead to other health effects if it's not addressed. That said, not every mold situation is a red alert, and you shouldn't let sensational news stories and misleading advertising guide you in your decisions about mold remediation.

If you've discovered mold at your property, give us a call at 716-646-6684 to talk through your options. We're happy to inspect and assess your issue and put our decades of specialized training, equipment and expertise to work to remediate your mold infestation.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.
