Mold is one of the most problematic issues in New Jersey homes because of the state’s vulnerability to flooding. Also, water can seep into a home through cracks in a foundation, through a leaky roof or several other ways. Burst pipes or hot water heaters can leave a home flooded, and the remaining moisture after improper cleanup can lead to mold. We offer a variety of services to find and remove mold.
There are several different types of mold. Some mold may be noticeable such as the mold found in your bathroom shower. Other types of mold can grow behind walls or under the carpet without your knowledge. Also, mold may grow in your HVAC system if it is not properly cleaned and there is a buildup of moisture. Some mold is toxic and can cause serious health problems. Keep in mind that flooding does not have to occur for mold to grow. Continual moisture exposure is always a mold risk. If you suspect mold, you should request an inspection and professional testing from us.
Mold Removal And Remediation
If you notice a change in your health after your home was flooded or if you suspect that there is mold from another source, seek medical help. Some health symptoms caused by mold include:
- Worsening asthma
- Skin irritation
- Nasal congestion
Let your physician know if you suspect that mold may be causing or worsening the above symptoms. Next, contact us for mold removal or remediation. Mold spores always exist in the air and in the ground. However, problems arise when they grow out of control. We stop more spores from growing and use professional methods to remove the existing overgrowth. Mold needs moisture, a source to grow on and an optimal temperature above freezing and below 120 degrees Fahrenheit. We eliminate as many factors as possible to prevent future problems.
If you have a mold problem in your home or want to avoid one after a flood, we can help. We remove debris and any standing water. If there is a possible sewer backup as well, be sure to call a professional. Do not attempt to walk through the water or touch anything in it. After we remove the standing water and debris, we perform any necessary cleaning. We dehumidify the area after that. Carpets and furniture may be damaged from the flood incident. Fortunately, we are able to conduct some minor repairs on carpets and parts of the home.
When water damage continues, mold-related health risks increase and the damages to your home, carpet and belongings only worsen. If you know that moisture is seeping into any part of your home in Colts Neck or if there was a flood, call Flood and Mold NJ. We have over 20 years of experience and also offer emergency services.
