Mold Remediation Services
Total Restoration Services is a certified mold remediation company that understands that microscopic mold spores can quickly become a problem within a home or business. This occurs when spores enter an area and are introduced to any type of moisture.
Entry into a home or business where moisture is present allows spores to colonize on any organic material such as a fingerprint on a glass mirror, dirt on a cement wall or the paper backing of drywall. Mold is often a deceptive and unseen problem that can occur anywhere within a home or business but is typically found in damp, dark places such as basements and attics. Other places within a home or business that are also susceptible to mold colonization include bathrooms, kitchens, locker rooms, leaky roofs or any area where water may be present. Total Restoration Services technicians are specially trained to properly remediate affected areas, making certain that no new mold growth can occur under the remediated conditions.
New York State requires mold remediation companies such as Total Restoration Services to be certified within the state to ensure that all proper protocols are taken in order to efficiently and effectively eliminate all mold on site as well as make certain that mold cannot recolonize under the new conditions within the site area. Within TRS, we have specially trained individuals with certified titles such as:
- Applied Microbial Remediation Specialist
- Water Damage Restoration Technician
- Applied Structural Drying Technician
Understanding that mold is easily spread from it’s natural outdoor environment into a home or business helps one to understand how to prevent recurrence and how to understand the special measures necessary in order to efficiently remediate the problem. Total Restoration Services technicians are trained in the allergenic components of mold spores and how to guarantee the reduction of any additional spreading of spores during the remediation process. Mold can easily spread throughout a home or business within 48-72 hours of entry and can cause allergens and irritants that have the potential to cause adverse health effects to those continuously in close proximity of an affected area. Possible adverse health effects are allergic reactions, asthma attacks, chronic sinus problems, poisoning by mycotoxins and fungal infections. These problems can extend to fatigue and depression. It is extremely important that when mold is found to be present within a structure, that it is properly remediated by a professional company such as Total Restoration Services.
Total Restoration Services abides by New York State certified protocols to remediate all types and sizes of mold colonies. Remediation may include having to introduce negative air within a closed off area. This is utilized while using special equipment to remove mold spores from the air itself while removing or cleaning effected materials, furniture etc. Once the affected materials and contents are removed, properly cleaned or replaced, the affected area must also be specially cleaned and contaminated air removed and replaced with “scrubbed” air. Once mold is removed from an area, a 3rd party company will then come in and take samples of the surfaces and test the air quality. When all tests are returned with safe levels, the containment walls can then be removed and the business or homeowner may return.

I wanted to take a minute and recognize Ryan and Jessie for the work they completed this weekend. First and foremost they're attention to safety, e.g. PPE and their prep work to safely operate the scissor lift. They were able to work through some challenging obstacles to complete the task at hand. TRS is extremely fortunate to have these two young men.
I want to thank Chris and his team for helping The Cheesecake Factory reopen quickly. Great communication and workmanship. Thank you for dropping everything and getting us back in business.
Total Restoration Services came to my water emergency when my hot water tank exploded and they were prompt and compassionate. They really took the headache out of dealing with my property damage, which turned out to be a lot and for that I am grateful!
