Woodbury Mold and Mildew
Is your drywall contaminated with mold or mildew? If so, you need to act quickly. Mold and mildew are not only unsightly, but they can pose a serious health risk to you and your family. Aside from ruining the look of the wall, molds release spores into the air that can lead to allergic reactions, irritation of the eyes or throat, asthma, or other respiratory problems. If you are having mold problems anywhere in Woodbury, contact us now.
Water-damaged drywall is especially susceptible to infections of Stachybotrys chartarum, otherwise known as toxic black mold. Toxic black mold is one of the leading causes of sick building syndrome in Woodbury, and has serious health effects. Its spores are neurotoxic, which means that they damage your brain, and can cause confusion, disorientation, depression, anxiety, and even hallucinations or seizures. If you find mold or mildew in your Woodbury home, you need to remove it immediately. Contact Countrywide Contracting Inc right away, and we will solve all your mold and mildew problems.
There are several different ways we can deal with your mold problem, depending on the size and seriousness of the infestation. For a small growth, it may be sufficient to just clean the area with specialized chemical cleaners that will kill the mold and help prevent it from growing back. These chemicals can be dangerous, however, so they should only be used by professionals in a well-ventilated area.
For a larger mold infestation, or one that has penetrated the drywall, it becomes necessary to remove the infected section of the wall entirely. The room must be cleaned thoroughly after the wall is removed, and the surrounding area needs to be checked for smaller mold growths. We can then replace and repair the drywall. If the infestation was in a place that may be prone to further mold growths, like a bathroom or damp basement, we also have the option of repairing the wall with special mold-resistant drywall.
