Job Stories From Cape May, NJ
Mold Treated in Crawl Space Conversion in Cape May, NJ

Recently, a crew from Cowleys Mold Solutions team was sent to a home in Cape May, NJ. The home was originally built with a crawl space, but at some point, to increase the usable space, the homeowner had converted the crawl space into a finished basement. Conversions of crawl space to basements are a significant construction project that involve excavating the soil under the home and constructing new footings and foundation walls. Although crawl spaces are notorious trouble spots for homeowners since they are infrequently inspected and problems down below can go unnoticed until they start to affect the living areas of the home, basements can be a problem for mold as well. 

Just like with crawl spaces, basements are usually subterranean and are prone to mold growth because of high indoor relative humidity levels. In addition to humidity problems, basement mold can be triggered by flooding, groundwater intrusion through cracks in a home’s foundation, and leaky pipes. With this Cape May residence, the problem was a water pipe leak. As long as there is water or moisture, mold will grow on any organic material, even processed wood. Those pungent “musky” smells we associate with mold are the gasses released by mold’s dissolving enzymes. When mold grows in basements or crawl spaces, the mold spores travel on air currents to the living spaces of the home and reattach there. A home’s entire indoor air quality is harmed by mold.

Even though this was a finished basement and problems are usually found more quickly. These homeowners were elderly and had limited mobility. In recent years, they stopped venturing down into the basement. This water leak could have easily gone on for a month or two before the couple realized they had a mold problem. One important lesson from this job is that if you know of elderly homeowners, a friend or family member should periodically check their residence for possible insect or mold problems. The elderly often do not notice these problems in their early stages, and it is only after things get really bad that they take notice. With mold, a delay can turn what could have been a smaller, localized problem turns into an extensive mold removal project.

Because of the delay in treating the mold and underlying water problem, the basement paneling was ruined/ We needed to do a full-tear out of these materials. Fortunately, although the paneling had to be removed, all of the other building materials were structurally sound. Often, with our mold treatment process, we can avoid removal of all building materials. As long as there is no loss of structural integrity we treat the mold right where it sits. However, like here, once materials are damaged, they must be removed. 

After tearing out the water-destroyed paneling, we treated the beams and all of the affected areas by applying our EPA-registered anti-microbial (MAPS 1) which kills any surface mold as well as any airborne mold spores. We then applied our patented polymer sealant (MAPS 2). Any treated mold is rendered inert, harmless, and non-allergenic. The sealant is also moisture-sensitive and reactivates to prevent the return of any new mold growth in the treated areas.
