The new way to kill mold and keep it from coming back.
Serving Central NJ, Middletown, Woodbridge, Toms River
Mold was coming through the wall, so we suspected a leak behind the sheetrock.
The water damage was extensive.
Soon, this basement will be as good as new once the sheetrock is replaced. No one would have the slightest clue that there was once a mold problem.
Initially, this homeowner was quite worried that the mold issue could not be resolved,, and he was quite pleased that we could take care of the problem so quickly.
Normally, we don't remove sheetrock unless it is water-damaged and has lost its structural integrity. With our treatment process, we can often treat the mold directly right where it is growing and leave the building materials in place. However, in this particular case, the sheetrock was water-damaged and non-salvageable. After a discussion with the homeowner, we determined that the best course of action was to cut out the sheetrock and find out what was going on behind the wall. Sure enough, we exposed a leaky pipe. The homeowner had the leak fixed immediately, and we then returned to treat the mold before the homeowner had the sheetrock replaced.
We treated the mold-affected areas of the basement by first applying an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1). After letting it dry, we then applied a patented sealant (MAPS 2) that encapsulates the mold and kills in at the cellular level. This sealant, available only to companies licensed to use the product, not only kills existing mold. It also has the ability to reactivate with moisture to kill future mold growth in the treated areas. It's great further protection should any mold return to that area.
Recently, a homeowner residing in Millstone Township, NJ, after seeing some mold growth on sheet rock in the basement, contacted Cowleys Mold Solutions to have the mold treated. A two-man
Mold Solutions crew was dispatched to deal with the problem and remove the basement mold. Whenever a home has water or excessive moisture in an enclosed area, often in crawl spaces, basements, attics, and bathrooms, there is always the potential for mold because of either chronically high humidity levels or some water intrusion event like a burst or leaky pipe or groundwater infiltration.
