Mold Removal White Plains, NY

mold-removal-white-plainsMold Removal White Plains NY is different from other areas of Westchester County, because White Plains has such a variety of dwellings from skyscrapers to single family homes.  Here you see a photo of a bathroom ceiling from a home in White Plains NY. As you can see it is completely covered in black mold. This mold damage is not from a leak, but from steam from the shower collecting on the ceiling. That is why vents are installed in bathrooms, to prevent mold.

The bad news you can see from the picture, the good news was that this was very easy to treat without having to cut the ceiling out.. First we covered the bathroom door with 6 mil plastic making an air tight seal. We then set up a negative air machine to clean the air as we worked and to prevent any cross contamination to the rest of the house. We then hepa vacuumed not only the ceiling but the entire room. Then we sprayed the ceiling with Calbrite anti-microbial spray and wiped it down. While waiting for that to dry we proceeded to spray and wipe the rest of the room. After the ceiling dryed we then hep vacuumed again, and the rest of the room after. We then encapsulated the ceiling with Fosters to seal and prevent this from happening again. Very simple and inexpensive, the whole thing was completed in one day.
