This homeowner in Matawan, NJ, was in the process of selling his home. During the protective buyer’s home inspection, mold was discovered in the basement bathroom next to and on the HVAC ceiling register box. The likely cause was condensation that had formed on the ductwork. Condensation on ductwork is fairly common. It forms on when warm, moist air (which is what we are usually dealing with in a basement) comes into contact with a duct’s cooler surface. Water can condense on ductwork if there is inadequate insulation on the ductwork or if there is excessive moisture in the air. Water intrusions can cause a variety of secondary problems, including mold growth. Once mold takes hold, it can quietly spread to other areas of the home through airborne mold spores that attach elsewhere. 

The homeowner seller was concerned that finding mold during the inspection would delay or even completely derail any possible sale. Fortunately, Cowleys Mold Solutions team was called in. There was no water-damaged materials and everything was structurally intact, so we could treat the mold right where it sits without the time and cost of a tear-out. To treat the mold, we applied an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) followed by a patented sealant (MAPS 2) that not only kills the existing mold, but has moisture-sensitivity and will reactivate to kill future mold growth as well. We then wiped down visible staining. Mold stains are simply the residue left from mold and is not in and  of itself allergenic or otherwise harmful. Nevertheless, mold stains are aesthetically unappealing, and we wiped down the visible staining. 

We offer a 1-year warranty on our mold treatment, which made the buyer comfortable to proceed, and after we had successfully removed the mold, the pending sale was not delayed. Ideally, it would have been preferable to deal with the mold prior to listing the house. Those who are contemplating selling should inspect for mold in the non-living areas of the home. Crawl spaces, basements, and attics are all trouble spots for mold because of humidity issues or water intrusion problems.

Job Stories From Matawan, NJ
Leak Causes Mold in Matawan, NJ Basement

This home in Matawan, NJ, had a leak behind some sheetrock in the basement that had gone undetected. Water damage was severe. In order to determine the extent of the water damage, we cut out a portion of the sheetrock. We removed water-damaged sheetrock as well as any ruined insulation. With our mold treatment, if the building materials have not lost their structural integrity, we can treat the mold right where it sits and avoid a tear-out. However, once building materials have become water-damaged, they must be removed.

A Mold Solutions team treated the mold-affected areas of the home with an EPA-registered antimicrobial (MAPS 1) to kill the surface mold, followed by a patented sealant (MAPS 2) that completely destroys existing mold. This sealant reactivates when exposed to water or moisture to prevent the return of any new mold growth in the treated areas. 

The homeowner was pleased that we could deal with the mold problem so efficiently. The lesson with this particular mold job is that homeowners need to periodically inspect all areas of the home to ensure that there are no hidden water intrusion issues. Any water intrusion problem, including pipe leaks and rainwater or groundwater entering the home through the roof or foundation can trigger dangerous mold growth. Chronically high humidity and moisture conditions in basements and crawl spaces is a common cause of mold formation as well. If you have a mold problem, it is important to have the mold treated correctly. Contrary to popular belief, simply wiping bleach on porous surfaces like wood and sheetrock will not kill all of the mold.
