Choosing The Right Mold Removal Company NJ
Things To Consider When Choosing A Mold Remediation Company In New Jersey
If you are a South Jersey home or business owner, you may be unfamiliar with indoor mold growth and the mold remediation process. But, that is to be expected since handling a serious mold situation is not common knowledge. Chances are, you will never need information about professional mold remediation in your New Jersey area, until you actually encounter a serious mold problem. Because of this, NJ home or business owners tend to become overwhelmed and stressed at the discovery of a serious mold problem. If or when you are faced with a serious mold contamination, do not let the unfamiliar stress you out.
It is important to understand that mold removal is unlike most other service industries. A poorly executed mold remediation can affect your family’s health and cause expensive property damage. If you are in need of mold services, you need to do your research before trusting just any mold remediation company with the well being of your family and property.
What To Look For When Choosing A Mold Remediation Professional in South Jersey
What kind of reputation does the mold remediation company have?
Do your research. Check a company’s online reputation and ask for references. The internet has allowed us access to limitless sources of information. A company’s online reputation is a good indicator of who they are as professionals. Read reviews on Angie’s List, Google, Facebook and anywhere you can find them. See what past clients have to say about their experience and see if that meets your expectations. Do not be shy about asking for references!
At MasterTech we appreciate high expectations, and we aim to exceed them. Our clients’ experience with us is one of our top priorities and we always have their best interest in mind.

Does the mold removal company have industry certifications, training and insurance?
It is important that you hire a company qualified to get the job done right the first time. Just because they advertise that they are experts, does not mean they are qualified. Mold inspectors and mold technicians should be properly equipped with the appropriate tools, skills, knowledge, and certifications. Make sure they are licensed as New Jersey Home Improvement Contractors. The state of New Jersey REQUIRES every mold remediation company to be licensed as New Jersey Home Improvement Contractors and carry the proper general liability insurance AND pollutant insurance. Every mold professional should be able to provide you with their NJ HIC Lic.# and insurance certificates upon request.

What is the company’s mold remediation process?
Proper mold remediation, completed by a mold removal professional, has 3 core defining elements.
- Identifying the source:
In order to ensure the success of a mold cleanup, the moisture source must be identified and resolved. Typically, at the end of a long moldy trail, there is a significant water or moisture source promoting the mold activity. Finding, stopping, and fixing the source of the water intrusion should be top priority.
- Containing the problem:
Before beginning any work, it is important to carefully protect the unaffected areas. Technicians should be fully trained to carefully isolate all areas of concern with the appropriate containment barriers and covers to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
- Cleaning and disposal:
In many cases, mold can be effectively removed from the surface of building materials by following the IICRC S520 Mold Remediation Protocol. However, in severe cases, some building materials may be non-salvageable and must be removed and replaced. Mold technicians should be trained in the most advanced cleaning and demolition techniques in order to ensure a safe, effective mold remediation.
While each mold remediation project is unique to the specific conditions of the space, every scope of work presented by a NJ mold removal professional should include the above key factors.
Mastertech Environmental’s NJ mold remediation process was carefully developed to ensure the safest and most effective mold remediation from start to finish.
Does the company have verifiable references from previous clients?
Sometimes, talking to someone who can verify a company’s professionalism is helpful. Any company that has successfully provided a service to many happy and satisfied clients in South Jersey should have references. Ask for a few from clients who were in a similar situation as you. Ask if they have any clients who are willing to actually talk to you about their experience with the mold remediation company.
At Mastertech Environmental, we follow up with each and every client to make sure they were happy with every aspect of their remediation. Proving the job was done right is as easy as Post Remediation Testing, but finding out if our clients are happy with the overall project is equally as important. Was the crew professional and polite? Were they dressed appropriately in uniform? Were they on-time each day? Did they communicate well with you?
Ask for references – and then contact them!
Does the company provide a warranty for the mold remediation?
Mold Remediation means mold removal AND mold prevention. If your mold remediation company has identified all potential moisture sources and performed proper mold remediation, they should provide a warranty. It’s that simple.
Your mold remediation proposal should always include thorough and proper cleanup of the existing mold as well as recommendations for preventative measures to discourage recurrence. If your mold remediation is executed correctly the first time, the mold should not grow back.
At MasterTech, we pride ourselves in providing only the safest and most effective mold remediation available. Our team of certified mold professionals have years of industry knowledge and experience and will carefully develop a step-by- step mold remediation process specific to your issue.
As proof of MasterTech’s commitment to providing a safe and mold-free environment for you and your family, every mold remediation is backed by a 5-year, mold-free warranty. It is our promise that the mold is gone, and it will not come back.
Does the company perform Post Remediation Verification Testing?
Post Remediation Verification Testing means the mold professional will collect air and/or surface samples from the cleaned environment for lab analysis. These samples should indicate a clean environment with normal indoor mold levels. This is a quality assurance step to ensure that the mold remediation technicians did not miss anything and that cleanup was successful.
When dealing with the remediation of micro organisms and bioaerosols, it is always recommended that a thorough inspection and mold testing be performed after cleanup. This will ensure that the job was done right and the property is safe. Once you’ve chosen a mold remediation company, let them know that you are considering Post Remediation Testing. This will encourage them to not cut corners and do the best job possible.
At Mastertech Environmental, we always conduct a thorough inspection following the completion of each mold remediation, and we collect air and/or surface samples for lab analysis. This is our way of making sure that we got the job done right the first time. Our team takes pride in providing the safest and mold effective mold services possible in New Jersey.
