Did you know that on January 1, 2016, New York State’s mold law went into effect? According to the law, "mold" means any indoor multicellular fungi growth capable of creating toxins that can cause health effects.  

Mold is more likely to spread when an environment has been subject to moisture for a long period of time. If your property has sustained a recent water damage, it is vital to remove excess water and dry the structure promptly. If there is an ongoing moisture problem in the building, it is important to be alert for:

  • The presence of visible mold.
  • Strong musty odors which may indicate mold is present.
  • Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth.
  • Excessive humidity.

If you suspect you have mold, call SERVPRO of Tarrytown/Elmsford at (914) 358-9000 today!
