Before & After

Mold on Basement Joists Removed in Marlboro, NJ

This “before and after” of this basement in Marlboro, NJ is another demonstration of the effectiveness of our mold treatment process. The Mold Solutions crew was sent to this home to treat a small amount of mold growth on the joists in this basement. 

Rim joists are a common area for basement mold growth in many homes. especially rim spaces that are insulated with fiberglass batts. Warm, moist air easily passes through the home into the rim space and then oneness on the joists.  Any area in the home that has chronic problems with excess water, moisture, or humidity, there is a high risk for mold growth — and dark, moist, humid basements can easily turn into a mold breeding ground. Hidden mold in non-living areas of the home will then transfer on air currents to the inhabited areas, often making the home’s occupants sick.

We treated the entire basement using an EPA-registered antimicrobial called Mold Abatement Polymer Solutions 1, or MAPS 1 for short. MAPS 1 targets mold on a cellular level and kills it instantly. We then scrubbed away the mold and applied MAPS 2, which is our patented sealant that encapsulates the surface mold is growing on and renders the mold non-allergenic and harmless. MAPS 2 is also moisture-sensitive and reactivates whenever it gets wet to prevent any future mold growth.
