Thermal fogging transforms cleaning solutions into a heated fog that gets into crevices and disinfects both the air and surfaces. This process removes many of the pathogens found in an area and may be able to disinfect against the coronavirus as well.
The EPA has a list of approved chemicals for fighting other hard-to-kill pathogens. While these cleaning solutions have not been tested against the coronavirus, data supports that they could be effective in eliminating the virus on surfaces.
Our team of trained professionals will disinfect your home or business using state-of-the-art thermal fogging machines.

According to the CDC, “Surfaces frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles, bathroom surfaces, and handrails, should be cleaned and disinfected with soap and water or detergent. These surfaces should be cleaned at least daily when facilities are in use.
More frequent cleaning and disinfection may be required based on level of use. For example, certain surfaces and objects in public spaces, such as shopping carts and point of sale keypads, should be cleaned and disinfected before each use.”
Our experts at RSBI will disinfect your home or business using CDC approved disinfectants to promote a healthy environment for your customers or family.

What Is Mold?
Mold is a multi-cellular fungus, similar to mushrooms and yeast. Mold can be different colors, and look fuzzy, slimy, or powdery. It often has a musty odor when present in large amounts.
Mold requires three things to grow:
- Organic food source (paper, fabric, sheetrock, etc.)
- Proper temperature
The presence of mold means there is too much moisture. Moisture problems can be caused by:
- Plumbing leaks
- Leaking roofs or windows
- High humidity
- Condensation due to poor ventilation or insulation
What Is a Mold Assessment?
A mold assessment, or mold remediation plan, is a document prepared by a mold professional. It identifies mold and serves as a guide for the cleanup project. It says what must be done, how it is to be done, and how you will be able to tell if the mold has been removed. The specific requirements are listed in Section 945 of the Labor Law.
Why is mold sampling rarely recommended?
- Mold is a natural part of the environment. There is always some mold in the air and on surfaces.
- Sampling will almost always reveal the presence of mold or mold spores.
- There are no national or state standards for comparing or analyzing mold samples.
- There are no national or state standards to compare the sample results against.
- Unless people are allergic to mold or mold spores, the presence of mold does not usually produce any symptoms.
- Unless you know the specific type (genus and species) of mold to which someone is allergic, this information is not typically useful.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Air pressure inside your home is usually lower than pressure in the soil around your home’s foundation. Because of this difference in pressure, your home acts like a vacuum, drawing radon in through foundation cracks and other openings.
The EPA recommends that the test device(s) be placed in the lowest level of the home that could be used regularly, whether it is finished or unfinished.
We are a certified radon tester through the New York State Department of Health. Find us in the the official list of certified radon testers.
Passive radon testing devices do not need power to function. These include charcoal canisters, alpha-track detectors, charcoal liquid scintillation devices, and electret ion chamber detectors.
Active radon testing devices require power to function. These include continuous radon monitors and continuous working level monitors. They continuously measure and record the amount of radon or its decay products in the air. Many of these devices provide a report of this information which can reveal any unusual or abnormal swings in the radon level during the test period.
|Radon Level (picocuries per litre)||If 1,000 people who smoked were exposed to this level over a lifetime…||If 1,000 people who never smoked were exposed to this level over a lifetime…|
|20 pCi/L||About 260 people could get lung cancer||About 36 people could get lung cancer|
|4 pCi/L||About 62 people could get lung cancer||About 7 people could get lung cancer|
|0.4 pCi/L||About 3 people could get lung cancer||Less than 1 person could get lung cancer|

Radon mitigation is any process used to reduce radon gas concentrations in the breathing zones of occupied buildings. Radon is a significant contributing factor to environmental radioactivity. Mitigation of radon in the air is accomplished through ventilation, either collected below a concrete floor slab, encapsulation, increasing the air changes per hour and various other methods including treatment systems to remove radon in private wells.
Refer to the New York State Department of Health Radon Mitigation website for further information.

Asbestos Certification #18-46180
Prior to any asbestos abatement, demolition or renovation, an asbestos survey or inspection may be needed. This must be performed by a NYS licensed inspector. The survey requires a very detailed visual inspection of suspected materials, material sampling, analysis by a certified laboratory, and final recommendations.
Asbestos was used in thousands of products from roofing, siding, and insulation, to floor tiles, glue, and thermal fireproofing. An asbestos survey must be accurate, use directed sample removal, and provide the proper paperwork in the report.

Our water filtration systems remove impurities by lowering the contamination of suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses, and fungi. Our process consists of pre-treatments, screening, storage, pre-chlorination, membrane filtrations, fine physical barriers, and a chemical and/or biological process.
We use filters to cleanse water to the extent that it is safe for drinking. Our filters remove unwanted substances through sieving, adsorption, ion exchanges, and biofilms. These filters are able to remove particles much smaller than the holes through which water passes.
Types of filters we use:
- Heavy metals
- Bacteria, Radon
- UV lights
- Reverse Osmosis
- Hydrogen sulpher

Our Water Damage Restoration Process:
Step 1. Inspection and assessment
Step 2. Water and stain removal and restoration
Step 3. Cleaning and sanitizing
These steps ensure the proper removal of all water and contaminants.
Restoration Vs. Mitigation
Water mitigation focuses on prevention, while water restoration focuses on fixing the damage.
Water mitigation services prevent further damage from occurring to property by removing belongings from the water source.
Water damage restoration is the process during which water is removed from the property and belongings.
A small water leak that is mitigated within 24-48 hours may not require restoration services, since it is unlikely that mold will grow in that timeframe.
