Lakewood, NJ was originally settled by sawmill operators way back in 1750, the most notable of which was the Three Partners Mill. The same area saw industrialization from a local iron-smelting operation known as Washington Furnace.

Lakewood also had three well known hotels- the Laurel House, the Lakewood Hotel, and the Laurel-in-the-Pines. For much of its history, Lakewood has been a resort for the rich and famous, including frequent visits from Grover Cleveland, George Jay Gould, and even John D. Rockefeller.

Before and After Pictures from Lakewood

This homeowner in Lakewood, NJ, had some paintings and pictures that were hung along the walls of the staircase leading into the basement. He had taken them down in order to clean them, and when doing so, had an unpleasant surprise — there was mold hiding behind them. Paintings and pictures that are flush against walls can sometimes develop mold if the walls are damp in any way. 

With this home, the staircase area had the perfect environment for mold growth because humid unconditioned air from the basement came into contact with conditioned air from the first floor. You could feel the dampness in the walls from the condensation. We treated the mold in the staircase with an EPA-registered antimicrobial called MAPS 1 that attacks the mold at its DNA and kills it immediately. 

We then followed up with our patented, moisture-sensitive sealant called MAPS 2. This product encapsulates the surface mold is growing on and renders the mold non-allergenic and harmless and prevents any future mold growth in the treated areas. 

The homeowner did not want to risk future mold growth in the staircase area or basement of his home. The only long-term solution is to keep down the relative indoor humidity level in the basement (below 55%), so mold cannot grow. We installed a commercial-grade high-performance SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier and filtration system that is specifically designed to work in basements and crawl spaces. These dehumidifiers operate automatically with a built-in humidity sensor (humidistat) that allows the homeowner to set the target humidity level and let the machine take care of everything else. Also, these humidifiers drain directly either outdoors or to a sump pump, so there is no pan or reservoir to empty.

Mold Treatment Saves Home Sale in Lakewood, NJ

Oftentimes, mold is discovered in the non-living areas of the home during a home inspection performed as part of a pending sale on behalf of the buyer to determine whether the home has any structural issues that require correction. Although home inspectors are not generally mold experts, most are aware that mold is a concern for buyers and they are able to identify the signs of mold growth and the water intrusion or moisture issues that may be causing the mold growth. For all the parties involved – buyer, seller, and realtor – the discovery of mold could not happen at a more inopportune time. It is to no one’s advantage to postpone or kill a potential sale because of a finding of mold. 

During a home inspection of a home in Lakewood, NJ on behalf of the buyer, the inspector discovered mold growth in two different areas of the crawl space. Crawl spaces are a notorious trouble spot in a home. They are often used by insects and wildlife, and their high humidity can trigger mold growth. At this juncture, given the pending sale, the sellers were focused on having the existing mold treated and were not seeking long-term solutions to prevent future mold growth. To protect their investment, the buyer should consider dehumidification and other possible improvements to the crawl space.

A two-person Mold Solutions By Cowleys crew treated the mold problem with our mold treatment program. This program involves two separate applications in areas of mold growth. First, we applied an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) to the affected areas. Next, we applied our patented sealant (MAPS 2), for which Cowleys is a licensed distributor. This sealant kills molds on contact at the cellular level rendering it inert and harmless. Mold is dangerous because its airborne spores can cause various respiratory problems, and some strains of mold contain actual toxins. This sealant is also moisture-sensitive. If the conditions that trigger mold growth return, this sealant has the ability to reactivate and kill any new mold growth in the treated areas. Finally, we wiped down any visible staining.

The seller homeowners were pleased that we could complete this job in less than a day and that the sale would not be delayed because of mold. The sellers could now represent to the potential buyers that the crawl space mold problem was treated, and the crawl space is now safe and mold-free.
