Mold is often the result of some water intrusion inside the home. With this particular mold assignment, these homeowners in Monmouth Beach, NJ had a tub leak on the first floor of the home. Water dripping down caused mold on the joists in the basement.  The homeowners had fixed the plumbing leak and contacted the Cowleys Mold Solutions team to treat the mold. 

First, we treated the mold-affected area with our EPA-registered anti-microbial (MAPS 1). Next, we applied a patented polymer sealant (MAPS 2), wiping down any visible mold. Our chemical mold treatment process treats the mold directly right where it sits, avoiding expensive and unnecessary tear-outs. This sealant, while completely safe and non-toxic , instantly destroys mold on contact. The sealant is also moisture-sensitive — the sealant reactivates when exposed to moisture, preventing the return of any new mold growth in any of the treated areas. 

Although all of the mold was killed, there was still some staining with the deeper mold growth. There is a lot of scrubbing involved to get rid of any visible mold. However, deep mold stains are next to impossible to remove completely, Where there is mold growth in living areas of the home, Cowleys can also apply a mold stain remover, but sometimes it’s necessary to repaint. Since this mold was in the basement and not in a living area of the home, the homeowner was not particularly concerned about the mold stains, which are harmless and pose no health risk. 

During the home inspection process, inspectors and potential purchasers could mistakenly assume that mold stains are a sign of active mold growth when they are not. This homeowner was not interested in selling his home. But if and when that time comes, he can either explain the staining or paint the area to cover the stains. Again, by painting, you are not hiding or covering up mold. All of the mold is dead and has been removed. Any painting to cover up mold stains is for aesthetics only.
