Surface Mold in Your Camden County Home

4/20/2018 (Permalink)

Mildew and molds are fungi - simple microscopic organisms that thrive anywhere there is a moist environment. Mold growths, or colonies, can start to grow on a damp surface within 24 to 48 hours. They reproduce by spores - tiny, lightweight “seeds”- that travel through the air. Molds digest organic material, eventually destroying the material they grow on, and then spread to destroy the adjacent organic material. In addition to the damage, molds can cause in your home, they can also cause mild to severe health problems.

You may have a mold problem if your home has water damage due to -

  • Flooding
  • Sewage back-up from flooding in the area
  • Plumbing or roof leaks
  • Damp basement or crawl space
  • Overflows from sinks or bathtub
  • High humidity: steam cooking, dryer vents, humidifiers
  • Sitting water

Mold and Black Mold

When we hear the word MOLD it can bring many things to mind, such as allergic reactions and potential health problems.    The truth is that Mold is naturally present all around us.  There is no way to eliminate mold from our daily lives, but the key is to eliminate the factors that contribute to its growth indoors. 

There are many types of mold, the most talked about is Stachybotrys Chartarum—or Black Mold.  Black Mold produces allergens and irritants, but so do all other types of mold as well.  Whatever type of Mold that is present should be treated with caution.  Stay out of any affected areas and avoid touching the mold.  Touching mold can lead to mold spores being released into the air and further spreading  mold growth.

What can you do to prevent mold growth indoors?

  • Keep indoor humidity levels below 45%
  • Use air conditioners or a dehumidifier during humid months
  • Be sure your home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms
  • Do not carpet bathrooms 
  • Do not store basement items in cardboard boxes (cardboard can be a food source for mold in a damp or humid basement)

Does Your Camden NJ Home Have A Mold Problem?

Mold Remediation Does Your Camden NJ Home Have A Mold Problem? In Camden NJ, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

  • Hoarding – Water Damage – Mold Cleanup, Camden NJ

    9/29/2014 (Permalink)

    Mold Remediation Hoarding – Water Damage – Mold Cleanup, Camden NJ Water Damage left unresolved leading to Mold

    Recently, SERVPRO of Mt. Ephraim Bellmawr received a request through our website to complete a mold inspection at an apartment complex with two units affected. During our initial discussion with the property manager we learned the upstairs unit was empty and the downstairs unit was the location the growth was originating. We set a time for our inspection and were prepared to encounter any situation.

    Many times in life when something or someone is described as a triple threat it is usually referencing positive multiple traits or talents that make them marketable or successful. In this scenario the triple threat that was impacting the property manager’s ability to rent the property as well as address the situation with other tenants in nearby units was driven from the combination of hoarding, a small water problem that became a large one and ultimately mold.  The large quantity of content inside the residence accompanied by the long term slow leak led to a very high humidity level which is a breeding ground for mold over time.

    We completed our inspection developed a protocol and project plan as well as estimate and submitted to the property manager for consideration. We were selected from several vendors and completed the work time and on budget. The plan covered all items from containment to removal of contaminated items from the hoarding situation ultimately to demolition and treatment for the pervasive mold problem.   We had developed two distinct plans per apartment unit and incident which were completed successfully. Once the hoarding and mold project was completed the management company had their construction company complete the build back process, however, SERVPRO of Mt. Ephraim Bellmawr was successful in bidding and winning the post construction cleaning service contract.

    During this process we developed a working relationship with the property management company and have subsequently begun exploring other opportunities to streamline operations between our two companies. One of our core deliverables was the completion of an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) this coming 4th quarter 2014.
