Before and After Pictures from Neptune

Neptune, NJ Wall Mold Removal Neptune, NJ Wall Mold Removal

The Mold Solutions team was sent to a duplex in Neptune, NJ. In a somewhat unusual case, mold growth in one residence became a shared problem with the adjacent residence. While we often see cockroaches, bed bugs, and other pests spread among attached residential units like in apartments, dormitories, and nursing homes, mold is usually a stand-alone problem within a single residence, even with attached residential units. This particular situation, however, was somewhat different. 

The customer shared a common wall with a neighboring family. While the neighbors were away on vacation, their water pipe bust. The pipe was in the wall void of the shared wall. Whenever there is a water intrusion problem, mold growth soon follows. Since the neighbors were away, the leaking pipe went undetected, and the resultant mold growth affected the two separate residences. 

After the pipe was fixed, Mold Solutions was called in to treat the mold, which had spread to both sides of the shared wall. As shown in the picture, there was visible mold on the sheetrock above the baseboard heating vents in the customer’s home.

We first treated the affected areas by applying our EPA-registered anti-microbial using electrostatic fogging, which kills any surface mold as well as any airborne mold spores. After a short waiting period, we then applied a commercial-grade stain remover to mold-stained surfaces. Finally, we applied our patented polymer sealant, also using electrostatic fogging. This unique sealant, which is derived from coatings used for human medical implant devices, is available only to authorized pest control operators licensed to apply chemical products inside structures. While completely safe and non-toxic to people, this sealant destroys mold at the cellular level. Any mold we treat is rendered inert, harmless, and non-allergenic. The sealant is also moisture-sensitive and reactivates to prevent the return of any new mold growth in the treated area.

We were able to treat the mold is less than a day. Extensive renovations were avoided since no building materials were removed, and there was no need for the family to temporarily relocate. With our process, we treat and kill the mold right in its tracks. By avoiding tear-outs of building materials that have no loss of structural integrity, we also avoid disrupting the mold and inadvertently disbursing mold spores to reattach elsewhere. Needless to say, the customer could not have been more pleased with the service.

A Neptune homeowner was in the process of a massive renovation project. The contractor had gutted the interior of the home, saving only the foundation, floor, exterior walls, and roof structure. Unfortunately, during the tear-out, there was an unwelcome discovery: Mold was found behind the insulation and sheetrock.  The contractor removed all of the mold-covered insulation, and the homeowner called Mold Solutions By Cowleys to treat the mold found on the studs and sheathing. 

Signs of mold growth are often subtle, especially in situations such as this Neptune home where the mold growth is not visible. Hidden mold can grow out of sight behind walls in the wall cavities. These spaces can contain pockets of humid, moist air where mold can thrive. Mold requires an organic food source, and drywall is high in cellulose. Mold does not only grow on the visible side of drywall. It can just as easily grow on the hidden side. As this Neptune homeowner found out, insulation is a fertile reservoir for mold. It may not only contain organic material, but it also traps large amounts of dust that, amazingly enough, is also food for mold. Insulation that has mold must be removed and replaced.  Mold may be hidden underneath the insulation’s spongy layers, so it cannot be directly treated or completely cleaned out. 

How do you know if you have hidden mold? As with this Neptune homeowner, sometimes you don’t know unless and until there is a big renovation project and walls are torn out. However, there may be other signs. For example, one sign of mold is unexplained allergic symptoms of a family member that seems to worsen when in the home and diminish when away. Other times, while you may not see mold, but you can certainly smell it — that musty, earthy mold odor that we instinctively identify as mold. However, there are strains of mold that don’t release those “smelly” compounds, so even if you don’t smell mold, there still may be mold growth in your home. Finally, there is always the risk of mold growth in any home that has had a water intrusion problem in the past like flooding, water leaks, or chronic moisture and high humidity issues. If your home has or had water problems, mold problems are never far behind.

These pictures show Mold Solutions By Cowleys before and after treatment of mold. We first treated the affected studs and sheathing by applying our EPA-registered anti-microbial using electrostatic fogging, which kills any surface mold as well as any airborne mold spores. We then applied our patented polymer sealant, also using electrostatic fogging. This unique sealant is available only to authorized pest control operators licensed to apply chemical products inside structures. While completely safe and non-toxic to people, this sealant destroys mold at the cellular level. Any mold we treat is rendered inert, harmless, and non-allergenic. The sealant is also moisture-sensitive and reactivates to prevent the return of any new mold growth in the treated areas. In order words, the sealant not only kills today’s mold growth; it stops tomorrow’s growth as well.

The homeowners were pleased that their hidden mold problem was resolved in less than a day and that the renovation schedule was not delayed. While mold is a serious problem, it is a problem that can be easily remedied — provided that the homeowner chooses the right mold treatment process. Since these building materials just had superficial mold growth and there was no loss of structural integrity, all of the materials could be saved. The homeowner was relieved that Cowleys could take care of the mold problem in a cost-effective way. Because of our treatment process and patented applications, there was no major reconstruction of the home beyond what was already planned and budgeted.
