-- While Hurricane Irene and other recent storms are long gone, their damaging effects are still being felt my many local homes and businesses. While most of the flooding has been cleaned up, now people are faced with a new disaster threatening homes and businesses in NJ – mold damage.
Following any storm, most people begin cleanup immediately. This usually means pumping out the water and attempting to dry up all affected areas and belongings. If done properly, this can prevent mold damage in the home. However, any bit of moisture left can be a breeding ground for this dangerous organism. If not found soon enough, mold can spread quickly and cause widespread mold damage which requires the help of a professional, certified in NJ mold remediation services.
Statewide Solutions has been recently certified in mold remediation by NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors and is now helping homes and businesses in NJ clean up mold damage caused by the recent storms. Since mold growth may not be obvious at first, many people didn’t even realize they had a problem until it was too late. Mold damage was occurring on hidden surfaces such as the backside of drywall, wallpaper, paneling, ceiling tiles and the underside of carpets and padding.
“Proper mold damage cleanup is extremely important in order to mitigate the damage caused by mold” said Dave Regen, President of Statewide Solutions NJ. “If precise mold removal procedures are not followed, it can reoccur. Certified mold remediation services include mold testing consisting of air, tape or swab sampling. This helps identify the hidden source of mold, allergens, indoor pollutants and the extent of any existing water or moisture damage problems. Once these procedures are complete, the mold remediation company can begin the mold damage removal process.” You can read more about mold damage cleanup at http://www.statewidesolutionsnj.com/nj-mold-damage-cleanup/
“In all cases, the underlying cause of any moisture or water damage must be corrected prior to any mold damage removal or cleanup” said Dave of Statewide Solutions NJ. “This is the foundation of success for any NJ mold remediation project”
