Sometimes, humidity, condensation and poor air circulation will provide an adequate water sources for mold development. The water problem will not always be as obvious as a major leak or flood. Basement foundation walls are mostly underground and are prone to seepage or leakage through tiny pores and cracks, which can easily go unnoticed if you do not know to be aware of it.
The first sign of water intrusion is usually water staining or efflorescence. Efflorescence is the white, powdery substance that develops on the foundation wall surface. It is the result of water or vapor seepage which forces soluble salts and minerals to the surface. While efflorescence is not mold, but it is a sign of water or moisture seepage which can cause mold. If you are detecting signs of mold growth or if your Gloucester Township, NJ basement has a history of moisture problems, you should contact a certified professional to have your basement inspected.
Most crawl spaces contain perfect conditions to support mold growth. Porous building materials and poor building envelope design play a huge role in most crawl space mold in Gloucester Township, NJ. Many crawl spaces are poorly vented with undersized wall vents. Although this seemed like a great idea years ago when they were introduced and added to the construction code, they have made moisture and mold issues worse. In spring and summer, crawl space vents introduce warm air into cool crawl spaces causing condensation on wood and masonry building materials. The same effect happens during cold seasons – only in the opposite order.
The combination of heat and poor ventilation can cause Gloucester Township, NJ attic mold. If not properly ventilated, moist air gets trapped and infuses itself into the attic sheathing and rafters. This moist air can also increase airborne mold spore levels which can settle into insulation and on belongings stored in your attic. Proper mold remediation techniques are important to ensure that attic mold doesn’t cross-contaminate the inhabitable areas below during cleanup. Our process also minimizes or eliminates dark staining left behind by moisture.
Most indoor mold is often caused by water leaks, flooring or broken pipes. But humidity alone can cause mold to develop in an interior space with poor air circulation or a lack of air conditioning. If you suspect mold in your home or business, don’t wait to have it checked. Depending on the degree of contamination, your mold problem may require an invasive or non-invasive approach. Invasive involves the removal of building materials like drywall, insulation or carpeting. Non-invasive mold remediation involves cleaning building materials as opposed to removing them. In most cases, if drywall, insulation or carpeting is affected by mold, it has to be removed and replaced.
