The new way to kill mold and keep it from coming back.
Serving Central NJ, Middletown, Woodbridge, Toms River
Because of the building design of the home, the attic was inaccessible. the only way to access the mold growth on the sheathing was to remove the sheetrock.
We treated the entire space with our two applications. We first applied an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented sealant (MAPS 2) that encapsulates the mold and destroys it at the cellular level. This sealant is also moisture sensitive and has the ability to reactivate to kill any future mold growth in the treated areas. In less than a day, we were able to successfully treat all of the mold caused by the roof leak.
Usually, when we are called upon to treat mold resulting from water seepage through the roof, we are able to directly treat the mold growth on the roof sheathing in the attic and then treat the mold on the sheetrock from below. As such, with our mold treatment process, we can often treat the mold directly where it sits. As long as there is no loss of structural integrity of the building materials, we can avoid tear-outs.
A homeowner in Trenton, NJ had a roof leak that was repaired. However, water had soaked through the roof sheathing and absorbed into the sheetrock in the garage below. As often happens, the water intrusion trigged mold growth. The homeowner contacted Cowleys to treat the mold.
