Whether you own a home or a business in Marlboro, New Jersey, you need an indoor environment that includes air that is safe to breathe. If your property suffers water infiltration from a broken pipe, severe weather event, roof leak or flood event, the environment can become the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold spores can trigger or exacerbate a number of respiratory issues, including sinus infections, asthma attacks and breathing difficulties. Other symptoms of mold exposure include dizziness, depression, exhaustion, skin irritation and fever. If you have experienced a flood event or suspect that mold may be present in your home or business, you can count on Flood and Mold NJ for flood restoration, mold removal and remediation, mold testing and emergency response services.
Leaking pipes, storm damage, roof leaks, major spills that are unattended, foundation leaks and leaks around windows are among the typical causes of water damage or flooding. The longer that the damage goes without repair, the greater the chances are that the damage will become more extensive. The wicking effect can allow the water to increase its reach; furthermore, mold can gain a substantial foothold in as little as 36 hours. However, cleaning up after a flood event can present health hazards. At Flood and Mold NJ, we have the experience and equipment to safely locate the cause, remove debris, restore damage to furnishings and disinfect the entire area. We also offer an emergency response service that allows you to recover from the event faster.
Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold remediation and removal should not be attempted without the correct safety gear, training and equipment. Unless the proper steps are taken, mold spores can spread a great distance when they are disturbed. If the property has been flooded, the debris must be cleared and the area dried before attacking the mold. The area in which mold is present must be stabilized, dried correctly and treated with antimicrobials. Depending on the extent of the mold and its location, affected drywall, plaster, carpeting and other substances may need to be removed. Other strategies include vacuuming, washing and using wire brushes to remove the mold spores. When you contact the experts at Flood and Mold NJ, you can count on us for safe, effective mold remediation and removal.
The presence of mold is not always easily detectable. Occupants of a building may display symptoms of exposure to toxic mold long before mold becomes visible. Airborne spores can spread through a home or even a multistory office building from colonies of mold that are concealed behind walls, inside HVAC equipment, under floor coverings or in attics or basements. Unexplained illnesses or breathing difficulties can indicate that undetected mold is present. Flood and Mold NJ has the training and equipment to inspect your structure for the presence of mold. Using field meters, moisture meters and other inspection equipment, we can inspect every crevice to determine whether mold spores are present. We can evaluate your property’s exterior and interior, locate the source of the problem and advise the best way to remedy the problem. If mold is detected, we offer professional mold remediation and removal services to help you restore the healthy environment of your property.
