This homeowner in Little Silver, NJ found himself with mold growth in his basement. As often happens in basements and crawl spaces, chronically high indoor humidity levels caused mold growth. It is not necessary to have a water intrusion event like flooding or a leaky pipe. Sustained high moisture in the air is more than enough to trigger dangerous mold growth, and from our experience, this problem is one of the major causes of mold growth in homes.

The homeowner contacted Mold Solutions by Cowleys. Our crew treated the mold in less than a day. We treated the mold-affected areas of the basement with two applications. First, we applied an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented sealant available to licensed distributors (MAPS 2). This sealant not only kills the mold, but it is also moisture sensitive. It actually reactivates to kill any future mold growth! We also wiped down any visible staining caused by the mold. Mold stains are residue of mold growth. They are not by themselves allergenic. However, they are unsightly, aesthetically unappealing, and can give the mistaken impression that there is a mold problem.  

To control the humidity and prevent further mild growth, it is important to fix the underlying problem, which in this case, was high relative indoor humidity levels. To address this problem, we installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier for this homeowner.  These dehumidifiers are specifically designed to work in basements and crawl spaces. From homeowner feedback, the best thing about them is that they are trouble-free and work automatically. There is no water pan to empty and a built-in hygrometer constantly measures the room’s humidity, turning the machine on and off as needed.

Job Stories From Little Silver, NJ
Water seepage causes mold in Little Silver basement

This homeowner in Little Silver, NJ noticed mold growth at the bottom of her basement stairs after a recent heavy rain. Typically, we don't remove sheetrock during our process unless there is a loss of the material’s structural integrity. With our process, we treat the mold right where it sits and leave any structurally sound materials alone. However, this homeowner was concerned about the source of the water intrusion that triggered the mold growth. She wanted to be sure that there was nothing else going on behind the wall that was contributing to the mold problem. After we removed the sheetrock, we determined that the culprit causing the mold growth was groundwater seepage into the basement after heavy rains.  

The Mold Solutions crew went ahead and treated the basement for mold. Our process involves two separate applications. First, we treat the area with an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) and then use a patented sealant (MAPS 2) available only to licensed distributors. This product instantly on contact renders any mold harmless and non-allergenic. It is also moisture-sensitive and has the ability to reactivate and kill any future mold growth. 

To prevent a re-occurrence of mold, it is critical to identify and fix the source of the water intrusion. If the underlying water problem isn’t fixed, mold will likely return. For this homeowner, the underlying water problem was groundwater seepage resulting from over-saturated soil around the foundation. Groundwater can enter basements when hydrostatic pressure pushes water into the basement through either cove joints (the joint between the wall and basement floor) or floor cracks.  

This homeowner contacted a basement waterproofing company that specializes in groundwater seepage problems. These companies often deal with groundwater seepage by reducing the hydrostatic pressure that caused the seepage in the first place. They do this by installing interior drain tile, which is a system of perforated pipes under the basement floor. These pipes act as a pressure relief valve. The groundwater is collected in the drain tiles and then carried off to the sump pump where it is discharged. Once the groundwater seepage problem eliminated, this homeowner should not have to worry about mold returning to her basement.
