Pompton Lakes, NJ Mold Damage Remediation

With so many structures along the lake or Wanaque River, areas like Wilderness Island Park and institutions like Pompton Lakes High School become vulnerable to mold growth and microbial threats. Elevated humidity and moisture concerns present ideal conditions for mold growth, but our SERVPRO team can help.

What Mold Remediation Objectives Protect Pompton Lakes Properties?

Remediation is not a universal approach, so we must consider specific objectives and desired outcomes with each remediation process we begin. Homes and businesses might have long-existing mold damage that requires controlled demolition, so the aim might be to minimize the amount of tear-out needed to resolve the mold. We help with:

  • Black mold
  • Attic mold
  • Mold remediation
  • Mold specialists
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Basement mold remediation

Containing Spores in Pompton Lakes Bathroom Mold Removal 

Containment can be a vital process to stop the spread and severity of mold organisms from areas beyond a damaged bathroom. Physical barriers with polypropylene sheeting can prevent mold spore migration, and the placement of HEPA air scrubbers and negative pressure machines can help as well. 

Can Odors Get Removed After Pompton Lakes Basement Mold?

Odors are one of the final obstacles addressed during mold remediation, but a necessary element to make mold damage “Like it never even happened.” We have several deodorization practices, including hydroxyl generators and thermal/ULV foggers, to help with this needed process.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 - (973) 546-4977

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 determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off 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 Pompton Lakes, 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.
