Mold removal in your West Milford, NJ home needs to be dealt with promptly and professionally. Only those that have been certified in mold removal can identify the most common types that will be found in your building, and then use the proper methods to treat the affected rooms. Basements are especially susceptible to mold infestations due to their dark, damp environment.

  • Aspergillus versicolor
  • Aspergillus fumigatus

Indoor mold is ranked into three different groups, depending on the health risks that they pose to humans. Hazard Class A, which Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus versicolor, and Fusarium spp all belong to, pose the highest health risk to humans. Presence of these fungi in homes or businesses needs immediate attention.

Professional mold removal includes more than just taking a bucket of bleach and removing the colonies from surfaces in your building.
