Mold is a common problem in New Jersey due to proximity to the ocean. Moisture and humidity give mold the necessary means for growth while incubating and spreading throughout your home. For Meridian Foundation Repair & Waterproofing, we provide mold inspection, mold remediation, and mold removal services that encompass your home from start to finish. Our objective in mold remediation is removing mold from the source of growth, eliminating the 'roots' of mold wherever it grows. This includes basement mold, crawl space mold, mold in attics, and bedrooms, as well as any area of the home in need of mold removal or mold inspection. Our restoration process in mold remediation and mold removal is accurate and efficient by purging infections in hard to reach places such as behind floorboards, crawl space mold, and walls.
Surface mold is the visible mold that you can see. Internal mold is where the infection has spread inside walls, floors, ceilings, and any organic material it can thrive on. Professional mold remediation and removal of mold can take care of both. Mold inspection is necessary to determine the level of mold present. Inspection of mold in attics, basement molds, crawl space mold, or any area will tell us where mold is located, and what type of mold we’re working with.
We remove all traces of basement mold by apprehending the root causes in our mold remediation and mold removal practices. In most cases basement mold is caused by a water problem which can also be addressed to stop the further need to remediate mold. Inspection of mold will let us know where basement mold is coming from.
Crawl space mold is very common due to its natural exposure to dirt, water, and soil. We inspect mold growth in crawl spaces and remediate mold in key areas that threaten your home and can provide further protection. Mold in crawl spaces often goes undetected until an inspection.
If you have attic mold, we can provide thorough mold remediation. This includes remediating mold on or in the floor boards that breach your ceiling underneath, wood supports, and any drywall. Attic mold often goes unseen due to its location in an often unused area of the home, and mold in the attic can quickly spread throughout the home.
Our team at Meridian Foundation Repair & Waterproofing uses products by Benefect, a leading manufacturer of mold removal and mold disinfectant products. These mold removal products help us to remove, disinfect, and prevent future attic mold or basement molds in your home. To learn more about the Benefect products we use check out the PDF's below.
A newer method of removing mold is through the use of sodablasting. This is a much less damaging method of abrasive blasting which uses sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda particles, and compressed air to carefully clean and deodorize areas affected by mold. This is a very effective method that does not cause damage to the surface but is able to carefully and completely strip off mold and mildew growth as soda is blasted onto surfaces.
Many other companies will cover the mold or hide it using encapsulation materials which does not solve the problem. Using the sodablasting technique, the mold is physically removed from the area through the blasting of soda, and when combined with an encapsulation system and humidity control products, mold regrowth can be prevented.
With every mold removal project, we must first assess the situation. We give a thorough mold inspection before providing any type of work. Within this initial assessment, we determine the type of mold strain, color, amount of spread, and causes of growth. This allow us to accurately remove any mold substance.
In order to remove mold the correct way, our inspection will help us determine the type of solvents to use. These solvents will 'eat away' at mold and cleanse the infected object or surface. Depending on the inspection results, we will use different solvents or multiple uses of solvents in combination to ensure quality cleansing and remediation.
Our goal is to salvage your home, not destroy it. Where infections of mold have spread throughout your home we do our best to restore your walls, floors, furniture, and personal belongings. The mold remediation process we use allows us to complete full restoration for your home. Purging mold, even attic mold, from your home is no easy task, which is why we strictly include an inspection before each project. If a situation presents itself where certain objects of parts of the house cannot be salvaged, we can rebuilt accordingly. These types of situations are rare, however we do have the tools and experience to do so.
