Mold Solutions by Cowleys Case Studies: Mold After a Flood Event in Realtor Office in Belle Mead, NJ
We were dispatched to a real estate office in Belle Mead, NJ after a flood caused mold to develop in two different areas of the building. In one area, there was visible mold on the wall and the baseboard trim as well as on the carpet. The other area was by the office cubicles where the realtors had their workstations. There was not as much visible mold in this second area; however, out of an abundance of caution, we thoroughly treated this entire space. We were concerned that there were numerous people were working in a pretty tight quarters, any of whom could have mold sensitivities or a pre-existing respiratory condition like asthma. Mold can substantially impact indoor air quality and cause or exacerbate respiratory problems in many individuals.
We equipped our Personal Protective Gear and treated every square inch of the area with our EPA-registered antimicrobial solution called Mold Abatement Polymer Solution 1, or MAPS 1. This product attacks mold on a cellular level and kills it instantly. We then used our mold stain remover, scrubbed away all the excess mold staining, and then applied our patented sealant MAPS 2. This application encapsulates the surface mold is growing on and renders it harmless and non-allergenic. MAPS 2 is also moisture-sensitive and will reactivate whenever it gets wet to prevent future mold growth.
