April 3rd, 2019 · No Comments

If you discover mold growth in your Paramus, NJ, home, you need to act quickly. Contact the mold remediation professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan to mitigate damage and potential health problems. Mold remediation takes more than a splash of bleach; indeed, effective mold removal takes expert hands. Let’s look at how our experts manage different complexities of mold removal from homes.


Contamination and Containment

Depending on the level of mold contamination in your home, we’ll create a custom mold remediation plan to ensure effective removal and treatment of the affected areas.

First, we’ll contain the area to ensure contamination won’t spread. Mold colonies give off spores that float through the air and can take root in other areas of your home, exacerbating your mold problem. This is a serious risk during mold remediation, but by containing the area, we can prevent it.

If the contamination is confined to a smaller area, we’ll set up a limited containment, while for affected areas over 100 square feet, we’ll implement full containment.


Detecting Hidden Moisture

One of the primary causes of mold growth is excessive moisture in a home. Sometimes, this moisture can go undetected, hidden behind walls or above in the ceiling. An essential part of mold remediation is treating the moisture problem that contributed to growth in the first place. We use advanced equipment to measure the moisture levels in your home to detect hidden moisture, identify where more mold may be hiding, and ensure excess moisture has been removed. Equipment our mold removal professionals use includes:

  • Moisture Meters: Our mold remediation experts are able to compare moisture readings from different sections in your home using moisture meters. With this equipment, we’re able to detect higher moisture levels in certain places and perform proper remediation
  • Infrared Cameras: This equipment helps our technicians check the temperature of different surfaces to detect areas that are cooler due to moisture without using invasive methods
  • Borescope: By using a borescope, we’re able to probe inaccessible places in your home, like behind a wall, to check for moisture pockets and take remedial steps accordingly


Using Effective Techniques

Depending on the scenario, not every technique works for every situation. We’re able to evaluate your circumstance and choose the most effective techniques and cleaning solutions.

For example, high temperatures can be used in mold remediation work, so to ensure items are cleaned, we’ll pass materials through temperatures of about 140°F to completely remove mold.

Additionally, our experts utilize different methods to ensure effective mold remediation. A few examples include:

  • Wet vacuuming to remove water from carpets and hard surfaces
  • Damp wipe to clean non-porous surfaces
  • Dry brushing to properly clean wooden surfaces
