What Are Mold Removal & Mold Remediation?
Mold removal is the process of physically cleaning mold from the surfaces it grows on. When growth has developed beyond what can be surface-cleaned, the infected material must be removed. Mold commonly grows on insulation, drywall, wood, or materials like caulk or fabric, which are porous and allow mold to propagate in hard-to-clean crevices.
Mold remediation is the process of addressing conditions in the environment that promote mold growth, which is necessary for successful mold abatement (the ending, reduction, or lessening of excessive mold levels). By taking remedial steps, you can make sure your mold issue is permanently resolved.
Our Mold Remediation NY Process
Here’s how the AAA Lead Professionals mold remediation process works:
- Mold inspectors assess your home or business. Then, we refer to the inspection report to physically clean mold anywhere it is growing, including walls, ceilings, roof, shower walls, basement, attic, crawl space, or wood materials.
- Specialists certified in mold remediation treat areas showing symptoms of past, present, or future mold growth. They may use anti-microbial solutions to inhibit the development of mold cells.
- The root cause(s) of the mold growth must be addressed and resolved to prevent ongoing problems. For example, replacing appliances that are causing condensation and using dehumidifiers.
- A clearance test will verify that indoor air quality is back to normal and airborne mold presence has been reduced to safe levels.
The expert team at AAA Lead Professionals follows strict guidelines to ensure your disinfection and plan to prevent mold recurrence are successful. After your mold inspection and testing are complete, our technicians will provide an analysis of the lab results, so you can better understand the conditions of mold growth in your building.
Mold Remediation Requirements in NY
Only professional mold remediators and mold contracting companies are allowed to offer mold removal services in New York. Per Article 32 of New York Labor Law, contractors and/or firms must hold valid certifications and licenses in order to work with mold.
A regular contractor cannot legally remediate mold for you, and it is also illegal to remove mold yourself in certain cases. For a building with 10 or more dwelling units, for example, mold remediation of greater than 10 square feet must be completed by a certified mold contractor.
Some of New York’s other mold removal guidelines include:
- Mold remediation projects must adhere to a work plan created by a licensed mold assessor.
- The client must be shown the work plan before beginning.
- Signs notifying of a remediation project must be displayed at the site.
- Clearance testing must be completed post-remediation by a third party.

What Our Clients Say
AAA Lead professionals took care of my mold problem from start to finish. They were professional , knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. I have been having a mold problem in my basement since we bought the home two years ago and we have worked with several mold remediation companies to try and get rid of the mold, it always came back 6 weeks later. It is now six month since AAA Lead Professionals performed there work and the basement is still mold free. We can finally start using our basement without having to worry about our health. Thanks so much for everything. You have really earned a five start review from me.

I hired AAA Lead Pros to do the mold remediation in my basement. Within an hour of my initial call someone came out to give me an estimate and mold assessment report. Initially, I was not happy to find they charged for the estimate. Once I received the quote back that quickly changed. Lead Pros are extremely well priced. I’m talking a third of what their competitors attempted to charge me. They were also willing deduct the cost of the estimate off the final price of the job. I hired them on the spot after receiving the quote and they were on the job site within a week. As for the work itself, I could not be more satisfied. The supervisor was friendly and willing to ease the concerns of both myself and the tenants by answering an onslaught of our questions. Once the walls and floors started being torn down it became clear to them that to do the job correctly far more material would need to be removed than what was initially agreed upon. This was done at no additional cost to me which made it clear in my mind that they are dedicated to getting the job done correctly without trying to take advantage of their customers. The mold killing agent that was used was a green product so it was not necessary to vacate the premise during the time the work was going on. All contaminated materials were removed and hauled off site. Anything which could not be removed (structural support beams) were treated and encapsulated. They also used an air scrubber which was left running for 24 hours straight to ensure any disturbed mold spores would not further contaminate the air and job site. After the job was concluded I felt compelled to tip them for their great service. They wouldn’t even accept the tip! This is why I felt personally obligated to leave them this positive review. I am normally very skeptical of contractors so it is refreshing to find an outfit like this with integrity. They will absolutely be getting my business again should the need ever arise.
I’ve used AAA Lead Professionals multiple times for projects we’ve done. We’ve had renovation projects with mold in the crawlspaces, asbestos shingles and tile on another project, and lead on exterior paint of an older house. AAA took care of all these problems in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price. Happy to use their services and to refer them to others.
