There are five main principles involved in mold remediation that are set forth by the I ICRC
1. Make sure safety and health precautions are taken by cleanup professionals and occupants. Mold-contaminated buildings can be associated with a number of health problems. Anyone involved in the mold remediation process must be protected from exposure through a combination of practices and controls.
2. A post-cleanup assessment by an independent environmental expert. An effective mold remediation cannot be developed without first determining the extent of the contamination to be removed. To ensure that remediation work is being properly performed, it is highly recommended that appropriate documentation of the remediation process be kept by project management
3. Control of mold before it spreads further. Eliminating mold at the source of contamination is essential. Once mold spores spread through the air, it will be much more difficult to capture.
4. Oversee the proper physical removal of the mold. The mold must be physically removed from the structure. Attempts to isolate mold or remove signs of mold on the surface are not adequate. Note that bleach alone cannot kill mold.
5. Ensure that moisture is controlled to limit future contamination or re-contamination. Mold growth is virtually inevitable if moisture is not controlled. Moisture problems must be identified, located and corrected or controlled as soon as possible.
In Sussex New Jersey we find that environmental conditions are such that many homes and businesses have issues with mold in crawlspaces, HVAC ducting systems, attics, basements and other areas of the home. Typically more than just mold remediation is required to ensure that the existing condition that contributed to the buildup or growth of mold is not allowed to continue. To contend with this sometimes physical changes have to be done to the property to ensure that mold does not reclaim the home. The benefit with Systematic Cleaning and Restoration is that we can provide all of those services to you.

Assessing mold contamination levels and why it is important.
Mold assessment is the process of collecting information about where the mold might be in your home or office. Experts generally come in an look over the structure and determine where the mold is hiding. This is generally done by laboratory testing as well as the use of specialized equipment.Sometimes the mold is obviously and sometimes it’s not. Sometimes you have to dig deep within a structure in order to find the problem. This is where an indoor environmental professional come into play. They will do the testing and then formulate the clean-up process. There is a written specification for mold removal along with followup testing and mold count parameters. Once the testing and spec is done then the mold remediation starts. The removing of the mold is necessary and beneficial for many reasons. Primarily they boil down to the health of the occupants of the home as well as preserving the value of the home. Because mold primarily feeds on organic materials such as cellulose there are many items in the home that can be affected by the overgrowth of mold. The majority of these items become damaged and unusable. So not only assessing but cleaning becomes very important to preserving health, safety and value.
Reactions common to mold issues in the home.
Now when it comes to the reaction for the mold it can happen in a variety of ways, depending on how susceptible you are and how much you take in. When you are at a lower level you will have things like running nose and eyes swelling and coughing to deal with. But if you are in extreme and severe categories you will have more prolonged and chronic illnesses to deal with. The longer you have the mold, the more susceptible you will be to the allergic reactions. This is called becoming sensitized. It is a common issue with mold remediation personnel because they are exposed on an ongoing basis. Unfortunately there are some in the profession that do not want to scare the homeowner or business owner when coming in to do the inspection so they leave their mask in the car. Unfortunately this can lead to long-term ill health effects and actually lung damage. So please don’t be offended if we wear a mask while doing your inspection.
Mold growth is facilitated typically by the presence mold spores which exist both in exterior and interior areas. They are everywhere. Conditions become ripe for mold growth when you have an ongoing moisture level that is adequate for the spores to germinate and then also for the mold to continue to grow. Also the warmer the temperature we find the faster mold growth will occur. Once you drop below 50° most mold growth stops. Mold also needs a food source. This would typically be anything that is of organic nature. Mold really enjoys feeding on cellulose which unfortunately makes up the majority of our homes. With moisture we typically find that the water content or moisture content usually is in the 70% to 90% level to facilitate initial incubation of mold spores. Once mold has developed though it has the unique ability of being able to pull moisture from ambient air to meet its requirements.
