Although mold can form anywhere in a home, crawl spaces are especially notorious for mold growth.  Mold in crawl spaces are not just caused by flooding, leaky pipes, or some other type of water intrusion event. Often, mold forms because of chronically high indoor humidity levels,  especially during our humid Jersey Shore summers. This homeowner in Long Branch, NJ contacted Mold Solutions by Cowleys because the rafters in his crawl space were covered with mold.

We treated the mold-infested areas with two products, an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented sealant (MAPS 2). This sealant kills mold at the cellular level. Once applied, the mold on any treated areas is rendered completely harmless and non-allergenic. This sealant has a unique property: It offers protection against further mold growth by reactivating based on moisture conditions, killing any new mold growth before it has a chance to take hold!

There photos show the “before and after” of our mold treatment process. As with most of our mold treatment jobs, there was no need to remove any building materials since the rafters themselves were still in great condition. We were able to apply our mold-killing treatment in less than a day. The homeowner was quite pleased with our service, especially because, by using this process instead of traditional mold remediation, he was able to avoid a massive tear-out/renovation project.

A homeowner in Long Branch, NJ was having allergy-type respiratory issues. If you are having chronic symptoms of watery eyes, sneezing, stuffy nose, itchy nose and throat and you can’t attribute it to seasonal allergies or anything else, it may well be a sign that there is a mold problem in your home. Fortunately, she was sick and tired of being sick, and she and her husband decided to make a diligent effort to figure out the cause of these symptoms. During a thorough inspection of the basement, the husband found mold growing on the basement joists. The washer and dryer were installed in the basement, and every time she went down to do laundry, she was exposed the mold and all of the airborne mold spores. Different people have different sensitivities to mold, just like pollen, and she had an allergic reaction to the mold.  

The homeowners contacted Cowleys to deal with the mold. A two-person crew from Cowleys Mold Solutions was sent over the treat the problem after the mold growth was confirmed. Whenever there is mold, it is essential to identify the underlying water problem that is triggering the mold growth. It is a common misconception that you need a flood or major water intrusion event for mold to form. Far from it. Often, as happened here, basement mold will form because of chronically high relative indoor humidity levels. We commonly find mold growing in basements, crawl spaces, and attics because of hot, stagnant, thick, wet air. 

We treated the mold with our two-application process, first applying an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented polymer sealant that encapsulates and destroys the mold at the cellular level. With our treatment, any mold doesn’t stand a chance! 

The homeowner realized that the long-term solution to basement mold was reducing the basement’s humidity levels. Shortly, we will be installing a SaniDry Sedona commercial-grade dehumidifier that is specifically designed to work in challenging environments like basements and crawl spaces. These machines can operate in temperatures as low as 40 degrees, turn on and off automatically using a built-in hygrometer, and empty directly into the drainage system. In short, they work 24/7 and are worry-free. Once this dehumidifier is installed, these homeowners will not have to worry about basement mold and, with the dramatically improved indoor air quality, this homeowner will no longer get sick from going into the basement to do the laundry!

Roof Leak Causes Mold in Long Branch, NJ

A homeowner in Long Branch, NJ, had a roof leak that had gone undetected for quite awhile. Once discovered, they had the roof leak repaired by a qualified roofer. However, as often happens with roof leaks, the intruding water caused mold growth. Here, mold had started to grow in a closet. The homeowners contacted Mold Solutions by Cowleys to resolve the mold problem.

A two-member crew arrived to treat the mold-affected areas. We treated the area with an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented sealant (MAPS 2). This sealant not only kills the current mold growth but is moisture-sensitive and will reactivate to kill any future mold growth in the areas where it is applied.  Finally, we wiped down any visible staining. Mold stains are a by-product of the mold enzymes consuming organic materials. While some mold stains can be removed, others are too deep in the building materials to be superficially scrubbed away. In those cases, the homeowner must either replace the materials or paint over the stains. 

With this mold job, as with most of our projects, there was no loss of structural integrity to the building materials. In these situations, we treat the mold directly and leave the building materials alone. We finished this project in less than a day. The homeowner was quite pleased with our mold treatment process. We made his home mold-free without the time, expense, and disruption of a tear-out/renovation project.
