As of January 2016, only licensed contractors can perform mold mitigation work in New York state. We understand there is a lot of confusion when it comes to mold. We appreciate the opportunity to provide answers to your questions and provide solid solutions to your situations, not just band-aids. We are trained and certified in proper remediation techniques and protocols. We know how to effectively remove the contamination and we do not rely on chemicals to “kill” the mold. Proper mitigation always includes fixing the moisture source, because mold will not grow in a dry environment.
Mold is present everywhere and grows in warm locations. Mold can be very dangerous for your health and your home’s structure. If you want to put your mold problems behind you, you must work with certified technicians for your mold remediation. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) or the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) have trained and certified our mold professionals, and we are a New York state licensed mitigation contractor.
Requiring such accreditation demonstrates our commitment to provide the best-trained and qualified technicians, to ensure the work is handled properly from step one through completion. Paul Davis will communicate daily throughout the remediation process with all stakeholders involved.
