Had a kitchen fire in one of my apartment units causing extensive fire and smoke damage. I contracted with Whites Restoration to do cleaning and repairs. They are very professional and did an excellent Restoration job.

Both their employees and sub contractors did high quality work. It was a good experience working with Whites Restoration , I highly recommend them.

Great experience with Tony from White's Restoration. In the middle of moving, we noticed some mold in our closet. We called, and Tony came over that same day to evaluate the damage and was able to come within the next few days to get the job done. Just what we needed for our quick moving timeline. Thank you!read more

White's Restoration was a god send. I had a broken pipe downstairs in my finished family room which flooded the carpet and room. They came right over with 3 huge dehumidifiers and 5 fans, removed pieces of the wall and insulation to find the problem area, and removed all the wet carpet padding. Everything was cleaned up for me! Eli was leading the charge to make sure it was done correctly. He was the best. Eli's attention to detail was fantastic. Thank you all so much!read more

I highly recommend White’s. We had some water damage and they came immediately to start work on it. Not only that, while the work was being completed, they came over/called when they said they were going to and were always very easy to reach. I worked most closely with Eli, but everyone I interacted with at White’s was very friendly, helpful, and professional.read more

Woke up and a pipe had broken and water was everywhere on the main floor and running down into the basement. Called White’s (on a Saturday) and within thirty minutes they had one of their project managers on site to assess next steps and thirty minutes after that a crew was here at the house to remove the standing water and begin the demo, setting up fans, etc to minimize damage and to aid the restoration process. This was a major water event and I have never seen a company move more quickly or professionally to help in a time of crisis. They also take and prepare meticulous notes and help in the event an insurance claim needs to be filed. Very glad I called White’s and special thanks to Keith, Michael, Eli and the whole team at White’s for being there and answering the call.read more

A while back, we had a stove top fire. We were fortunate to have White’s Fire Smoke & Water Damage Restoration take care of us. During this stressful time, an amazing team responded by immediately presenting to do an initial assessment, coordinate packing up of our home items, send linen/clothes out for specialty cleaning & transition our beloved home back to it’s original state. We were impressed by how thorough the work was and how seamlessly they communicated with our insurance company. The home treatment included cleaning & deodorizing the house and contents by the most kind & personable couple!! Our clothing was packed up by another special team (not us!!) who deodorized & treated each item, paying attention to specialty products. This was such a relief given that this was an emotionally taxing time for us. The walls & ceiling were repainted. Each item was eventually returned to its place within a very reasonable time frame. In the end, our home was beautifully restored. We remain grateful to White’s team for helping us get our home back!! Thanks againread more

I stopped by today to utilize their free vehicle sanitation service. I was very happy with the care and overall happiness they had in taking care to make sure my vehicle and others were disinfected and sanitized during these times. The fact that they were doing this for first responders was amazing, but then letting anyone in the public take advantage of it too is truly above and beyond and shows the character of this company. I will be back again before this is over and I know I can count on them for any of their other services should I need them in the future!read more

My mom had called me about flooding in her basement to see if I knew who to contact to get that cleaned up and I'd remembered seeing them on the news a few months back for their efforts regarding COVID. When I gave them a call, Eli, was pleasant and seemed well-practiced in defusing my panic. He and his team were personable, yet to the point on important matters and helped make my mom feel more at ease and in control of the situation of her home. Very good costumer and professional service. I recommend them to everyone.read more

Mold Testing In Rochester

White’s Fire Smoke and Water Damage Restoration uses a product called Air-O-Cell to test for Mold Spores in your home or business. Air-O-Cell is a unique sampling cassette specifically designed for the rapid collection and quantitative analysis of a wide range of airborne aerosols. It collects both viable and non-viable particulates, such as mold spores, pollen, insect parts, skin cell fragments, fibers (asbestos, fiberglass, cellulose, etc.), and inorganic particles. Should you need to have your home or business tested for Mold spores following a Water Damage, Sewage Back up, or any long term leak- call White’s Cleaning and Restoration. Not only will we be able to test for spores if necessary, but we will also provide you with a FREE ESTIMATE for the remediation of the growth.

Mold Application

Suggested and potential applications include, but are not limited to, the following

  • Indoor Air Quality: Mold spores, pollen, insect parts, dust mites, skin cell fragments, plant fragments, dust, fibers, combustion emissions, etc.
  • Home Inspection: Mold contamination before or after real estate transactions
  • Flood Restoration: Evaluation of mold spore contamination before, during, and after remediation
  • Allergy Testing: Mold spores, pollen, insect parts, dust mites
  • Clean Room Monitoring: Evaluation of low airborne dust and contaminants from personnel (skin cells, clothing fibers, cosmetics)
  • Fiber Analysis: Asbestos, fiberglass, cellulose, ceramics
  • Stack Emissions: Fly ash, inorganic dust

Advantages

  • Provides excellent detection limits over conventional filter sampling utilizing 25mm or 37mm diameter filter cassettes
  • Eliminates sample loss to cassette walls known to occur with filter samples from vibration or static charge during sampling and shipment
  • Eliminates the need for direct handling or preparation of collection media or microscope slides in the field
  • Eliminates potential cross-contamination between samples and during shipping that may occur with other devices
  • Unique optically transparent and smooth collection media allows direct staining and examination by bright field, dark field, and phase contrast microscopy
  • The sampling media is compatible with a wide range of biological stains and refractive index oils allowing for direct quantitative analysis of biological and inorganic particles
  • The Air-O-Cell will work with virtually any kind of sampling pump capable of pulling a 15lpm vacuum air flow

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

What is Black Mold

You may have seen sensational news reports that warn about the dangers of “black mold” or “toxic mold”. These reports can be alarming and confusing so it’s beneficial to get the facts to better understand mold.

Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called black mold, and it does produce allergens and irritants. However, many types of mold can produce allergens and irritants. Treat any mold with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb the mold.

How Do I Tell If It’s Black Mold?

Since many types of mold can cause reactions, you should contact us regardless of the color or type of mold. In many instances, multiple types of mold may exist in the same house or structure. If you suspect you have a mold problem, contact White’s Fire Smoke and Water Damage Restoration immediately.
