Learn More About Mold in Homes and Businesses and How To Remove It
Mold are fungi, of which many different species exist in New Jersey. Mold grows by digesting and destroying the material it grows on, and it reproduces by making spores. When these spores become airborne, they contaminate other areas and material with new mold growth, and mold spores can cause health problems when inhaled.

Mold often grows unnoticed above ceilings and behind walls and can cause extensive structural damage when the mold is living on, feeding off of and breaking down studs and joists. Mold needs moisture, the source of which can be leaks, high humidity, or condensation inside walls due to poor insulation or other factors.

Indemnifying mold should begin with a visual mold inspection during which sources of excess moisture should be sought, as they will need to be corrected to prevent mold from growing and returning. A mold inspection should look for discoloration that continues to grow or change color or the musty smell associated with mold growth. Union County mold inspectors and mold inspection services will look for common mold growing in your area of New Jersey, and their experience will help identify sources of mold contamination.

If a visual inspection reveals mold, mold testing may not be necessary. But if a mold inspection does not find mold but the presence of mold substances is still suspected, then mold testing might be required by a certified mold inspection service.

Mold sampling can be done by Union County mold inspectors who will collect samples from dust, air, and building materials. This sampling can allow local mold consultants to determine the mold species present, concentrations, and whether it is actively growing. Additional mold testing can include evaluation of the relative humidity in the building and taking moisture readings of materials in suspected areas.

Your Union County  mold contractor should be willing to give you a detailed explanation of what they suggest and why, including what they expect to find and what those findings will help them determine. They should also be able to explain mold removal and mitigation steps that may be necessary if mold is found in your home or building.

Results of mold inspections and assessments should be provided in a final report that contains three components:

  • Summary of the mold inspection
    Details the scope of the mold inspection performed and specifies the areas that were inspected. Summarizes the techniques that were used to perform the mold assessment.
  • Summary of the mold conditions
    Shares details of mold growth, including specific locations, estimated size of the area impacted, and the substrates contaminated with mold growth.
  • Summary of the moisture conditions
    Identifies the source(s) of water and/or moisture intrusion and specifies actions that need to be taken to remove the moisture and prevent it from recurring.

Steps for Mold Remediation Services
Mold removal services in Union County and the rest of Union County can offer mold remediation services for black mold, toxic mold, basement mold, attic mold, and other types of mold and mildew growth. They should offer the following steps as part of those mold removal services:

  • Identify and correct the source of moisture contributing to mold growth.
  • Remove and/or clean mold-contaminated materials.
  • Remove the mold and completely dry the area before doing any renovation or replacement work.
  • Clean up the mold once it has been killed, since dead mold can still cause allergies.
