Protect New Construction projects from Future Mold Growth

SERVPRO construction services Protect Your New Home from Mold!

Did you know that exposed studs, beams and new construction lumber, when exposed to the elements, are prone to future mold growth and contamination?

It’s inevitable that most wood gets wet or is exposed to moisture during the framing process – before the new construction is sealed with insulation and sheet rock.  

SERVPRO of East Meadow/Westbury supports builders and homeowners with a full decontamination service that will prevent future mold growth in new construction projects that have been exposes to moisture and/or water before walls and ceilings are sealed. 

SERVPRO uses a 100% organic disinfectant that kills 99.99% of germs. Other disinfectants typically use quaternary ammonia, bleach or even synthetic thymol to kill germs. Made from only food-grade plant extracts and essential oils, our antimicrobial disinfectant has NO toxicity warning because it poses NO heath risk toward humans or animals. 

In some instances, we also seal wood framing with a clear acrylic material in high moisture areas such as garages, basement ceiling joists, and bathrooms. This process will help ensure that vulnerable areas are continuously protected over the lifetime of the property.
