The Importance of Mold Remediation

The Importance of Mold Remediation

October 6, 2015

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in New Jersey, but it’s no secret that the season brings with it a rough spell of weather. Looking outside as this is written, the storms have arrived!

An increase in moisture from rain and storms means an increase in the potential for mold growth in your home. Homeowners that have dealt with mold issues in the past know just how tricky it can be, but also how important it is to have the problem remediated by certified experts.

If you think you might have a mold issue in your home, now’s the time to have it looked at.

Signs that Mold may be growing in your home.

Determining whether or not mold is present in a home is something that should always be handled by a team of experts. Still, there are a number of common signs that can pop up in homes that suffer from mold growth, including the following:

  • Odd smells
  • Visible growth that can be black, white, or any color of the rainbow.
  • Water issues in your crawlspace or basement
  • Respiratory issues and poor indoor air quality
  • Family members with chronic dry throats, respiratory issues, itchy eyes, headaches, or flu-like symptoms.

Noticing respiratory issues is one of the most important things to take note of if you think you may have mold in your home. A lot of people brush symptoms such as these off as allergies, but often they actually result from having a mold issue. If you or your family members have respiratory symptoms that are consistent and just don’t seem to be going away, calling a mold remediation specialist may be the solution. Your physician can perform specific tests to see if you are reacting to mold as well.

Our Mold Remediation Process

At Blue Planet, we understand mold growth in residential New Jersey homes and how to address it. Our step-by-step process allows us to get to the bottom of exactly what’s going on in your home and come up with a diagnosis and a solution for any indoor air quality problem. We’ll start by conducting an EPA-certified test, which will identify any mold spores or even bacteria in your home. Once we have the laboratory results, we’ll prepare a protocol enacting 5 step process to eradicate the mold infestation. This may also include abatement of contaminated building materials. After abatement and remediation, we’ll conduct a post testing of the air and surface, verified by an independent laboratory, ensuring your home and family are in a healthy environment.

Unfortunately, Mold in our homes and workplaces is something New Jersey families may have to deal with. Quite often, it can even be dangerous and unhealthy.
