Mold Control Tasks Experts Perform to Completely Eradicate the Problem from Your Home

Mold growth is a serious issue that needs to be addressed on an immediate basis since it can cause many problems, from foul odors to the deterioration of the material it grows upon. In such situations you need to contact ServiceMaster Metropolitan to address the many complexities of mold control to be taken care of.

Our aim here will be to examine the tasks our experts perform to control moisture levels in homes in Fairfield, NJ and all of northern New Jersey while performing mold control, and the steps they take to prevent mold from returning after the cleanup is completed.


Control Moisture Levels

One important aspect of mold removal is the control of moisture levels. If moisture remains high, the mold cleanup steps will prove to be ineffective. Let’s look at a few of the steps our experts take to control the moisture levels in your home.


Step #1: Reduce Moisture and Humidity

The primary focus of our mold control technicians while performing mold cleanup is to reduce humidity and reach the ideal level of 35 to 50 percent. To achieve this goal, our experts utilize equipment such as dehumidifiers and air conditioners.

Similarly, for reducing moisture levels, our technicians check for leaking pipes and hoses, which often play a major role in raising moisture levels in homes. Windows, doors, and attics are also analyzed to check for water stains that may indicate leakage. Once these steps are taken, they begin work to resolve the issues.


Step #2: Examine Cracks and Insulation

Water seeping through cracks in foundations and walls is one of the main reasons behind the buildup of moisture in crawlspaces and basements. Our experts take the necessary steps to properly seal cracks so water seepage is eliminated.

Our technicians also check to ensure the required insulation is present for pipes, windows, roofs, and exterior walls. Proper insulation reduces the possibility of condensation over these cold surfaces and consequent mold problems.


Prevent Mold from Reoccurring

Even after all the mold control procedures have been completed, it’s possible for mold to return if adequate steps aren’t taken to prevent it. Fogging the entire indoor space with probiotics will prevent an infestation from reoccurring.

Fogging with the help of probiotic vapor provides experts two benefits. First, it eliminates the odors mold can cause, and secondly, it reestablishes good microbes within the indoor environment of your home and rebalances their level.

Fogging is performed using multiple devices, and the procedure is carried out on a continuous basis to dispense small quantities of probiotics every hour.

After fogging, the probiotics settle and start making colonies over the many different surfaces. This process creates inhibition zones where mold is unable to grow again.
