We are family-owned and operated, we’re fully licensed in the state of New Jersey, we are certified under the I ICRC for mold Removal and Mold Remediation restoration projects. These projects have to be done carefully to protect the occupants of the home as well as the workers.mold cannot only be dangerous to the occupants and the workers but it can severely impact the value of your home.
There are five major principles that the IICRC requires us to focus upon. They are:
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.
These principles have been designed by professionals not only in the restoration industry but also by other professionals that come from other disciplines closely related to health and safety.
The ANCI/IICRC S520 Is this standard for the removal of mold from homes and businesses that are been contaminated by this organism. This standard is designed and is put together by workers, scientists, indoor environmental professionals, industrial hygienists, trade associations and others and provides the best management practices for handling micro-bacterial contamination. These standards are designed to protect the homeowner from not only the health effects of mold but are also designed to ensure that the homeowner or business owner gets the project done properly and safely. Systematic cleaning and restoration abides by the standards and we have been trained to implement them properly.This means that the areas that we provide mold removal we typically put these under negative pressure and ensure that mold spores and mold mycotoxins do not enter the living environment while the work is being performed. We also recommend that you hire an IEP, an IEP or an indoor environmental professional that will write you a spec independent of our work. They work directly for you and will not only devise a plan but will also check to make sure that the plan was followed and that everything was done according to the specification. It is always better to have two separate providers when it comes to writing the specification and performing the work for mold remediation and a home or business. Think of it is checks and balances. The IEP will write the spec and the company that you hire will perform the work. Once the work is completed the IEP will come back and make sure that it is been done properly, to code, and that the work that was provided meets all necessary conditions so that the mold issue will have been properly remediated.

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.
The many health effects of mold exposure and why you should invest in remediation.
You may not think that mold and mold spores actually are a hazard to your health but they are in a big way. Mold spores are very common within homes and office areas as well as outside our homes or offices. The comparison of interior mold counts to exterior mold counts sets up a parameter of what is called the normal mold count. This measures types and amounts of molds both inside and outside.What can happen if there is sufficient moisture and growing mediums these spore build up. Mold can cause an allergic reaction for many people. It’s not just the allergies that you need to watch out for, these molds can hinder your health from a respiratory and physical standpoint in some cases even causing brain damage and death! And once it gets into your body it may cause all sorts of problems.
Here is a breakdown of some of hazards of mold and mold spores:
1 exacerbated allergies
2 itchy and watery eyes
3 lung congestion and breathing issues
4 general malaise
5 throat irritation
6 skin irritation
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.
What facilitates mold growth?

If you have elevated moisture levels, air that is not being exchanged properly, food source which is typically any type of wood-based product you have a condition that can result in the growth of mold. Unfortunately these conditions exist in many homes today due to the stress that’s been placed on energy savings. Years ago there was less issues with mold because the houses weren’t as tightly built allowing moisture to escape. We can help you make sure that the mold issues do not return.
