Bridgewater, NJ Mold Damage Remediation

From the Bridgewater Commons and larger schools like Immaculata High School and Raritan Valley Community College, the persistent threats of microbial growth can impact many people simultaneously. As challenging as managing mold concerns might be, we have a team of qualified and certified remediation specialists to clean, dry, and restore the damage that mold organisms can cause. 

What Remediation Practices Can Help Bridgewater Houses? 

Remediation can change dramatically from one house to the next. Mold inspections can often be beneficial in determining the extent of the current damage and the affected materials. This evaluation can be vital in choosing the appropriate remediation solution, which can be one of several actions like:

· Sanding

· Media blasting

· Antimicrobial cleaning

· Controlled demolition 

Is Containment Important to Mold Removal in Bridgewater Homes?

When it comes to removing mold and microbial growth from a property, containment plays a significant role in this process. Preventing the spread of active spores and damaging organisms can be crucial in stopping further colonization. Plastic sheeting can start this process, though air scrubbers can also provide active filtration to stop mold spread.

Can Mold Odors Get Removed from Bridgewater Properties?

Odors are another concern for SERVPRO professionals. We can expect the cleaning process to reduce the severity of these smells, but it is deodorization tools that finalize this effort.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; 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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • 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.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (908) 222-2020

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Bridgewater, NJ home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Bridgewater, NJ home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
