Mold is More Than a Nuisance in Your Edgewater, NJ, Home

May 23rd, 2017 · No Comments


Mold in your Edgewater, NJ, home can quickly become a serious issue. If your home has experienced water damage or excess moisture, mold could be lurking in the walls, floor boards, carpets, and even your home’s paint. Mold spores are nearly everywhere, but they are generally harmless. However, under the right conditions, mold can take hold and begin to grow. In order to thrive, mold only needs a warm, moist environment with organic material to feed on. If left untreated, a small patch of mold can spread, forming large colonies. These colonies require professional treatment to be removed. ServiceMaster Metropolitan’s technicians are trained in removing mold colonies from homes across Northern New Jersey, ensuring they don’t return.

Mold often leaves a musty odor and is unattractive to look at. However, it is more than just unpleasant. Mold colonies, if left untreated, can cause serious damage to your home.

Structural Damage: Mold can cause structural damage to your home, especially when growing on wood. However, it can also be a sign that something more sinister is at work. Decay fungi thrives under the same conditions as mold and, if you find mold has attached itself to your home, the area is also vulnerable to decay fungi. To prevent your home from rotting, our technicians will address the excessive moisture issue which is allowing mold and fungi to thrive. Then, we will perform mold removal which will not only remove the existing colonies, but prevent them from returning.

It’s important for the wellbeing of you and your family that mold is treated by professionals in order to prevent structural issues.
