June 4th, 2019 · No Comments

Mold growth is a serious issue that results in various problems. If you notice mold growing in your home, then you should get in touch with a professional mold cleanup firm like ServiceMaster Metropolitan so that proper steps can be taken to remediate the situation.


Here, we look at how experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan utilize their technical knowledge and experience to avoid incorrect cleaning methods, and utilize appropriate techniques to completely remove mold from your home in Wayne, NJ, and all of northern New Jersey.


Chemical Agents

Our mold cleanup experts utilize their experience and avoid fogging with chemicals that are not formulated, designed, or tested for such application. Our mold remediation technicians know that if hydrogen peroxide is used for fogging, then it can result in different problems like discoloration and corrosion of soft furnishing.

Thus, before using any chemical agent for the purpose of fogging, our experts ensure that the product is specifically designed for that purpose.

In addition, our mold remediation professionals are aware that many products get their Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration according to federal pesticide laws. A good percentage of these products are not suggested for indoor fogging. Our experts understand that if such products are used for fogging, then it is blatant noncompliance with established laws.

As such, before using any specific product, our technicians thoroughly research the product’s contents, EPA registration, and approved uses.


Water-based Products for Fogging

Our mold removal experts have the necessary technical knowledge and they know very well that mold spores tend to be hydrophobic, which means they usually repel water.

Accordingly, they understand that if any water-based product is used, then the mold spores will not be sticking to the droplets of water; consequently, the use of any type of water-based cleaning product for fogging will prove to be ineffective.


Appropriate Products

Instead of water-based products, our mold cleanup professionals use products that are chemically engineered to create osmosis. In osmosis, molecules in a solvent pass from a semi-permeable membrane to reach a more concentrated solution from a less concentrated one to equalize the concentration on both sides of the membrane. In short, the osmosis process passively transports spores into droplets of water.


Super Cationic Process

Additionally, our technicians use the super cationic process for scrubbing mold spores out of the air. The super cationic process implements positively-charged atoms to easily capture mold spores, which are negatively charged.

The preceding details clearly highlight the importance of experience and technical knowledge in mold cleanup tasks. By utilizing their experience and knowledge, our mold remediation experts are able to complete the cleanup with the desired results.

Experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan have years of experience in mold removal tasks, and you can rely on us for the complete eradication of any mold from your home in Wayne, NJ.
