Landlords are Responsible for Structural Mold Issues in their Properties. SERVPRO is a Commercial Mold Damage Remediator in East Brunswick that Specializes in Leased Properties.

What should I do if a tenant reports a mold issue?

It is not uncommon for microbial growth issues to occur in East Brunswick properties. If a tenant reports mold issues in a property they are renting, there may be a liability on the landlord to remedy them. In older buildings, mold issues can frequently occur due to deteriorating insulation, draughts, or other structural problems. Sometimes a mold issue that appears on walls is emblematic of a much deeper concern, which should be investigated immediately. SERVPRO technicians can help landlords overcome these issues by performing responsible assessments and cleaning up mold in leased properties.

Why does mold only appear at certain times of the year?

You may find that reports of mold damage in your East Brunswick tenements only occurs during certain times of the year. Mold requires a specific set of conditions to thrive. These conditions include temperature, food supply, as well as water. Seasonal conditions can result in the ideal conditions for mold growth, especially if there are structural deficiencies in the building, such as cavities for rainwater to enter. SERVPRO technicians work hard to repair the source of mold growth, as well as the outcomes. By doing so, we can help to reduce the likelihood of recurring issues in your tenement buildings.

Critical steps for preventing mold growth in your business?

- Annual maintenance of the property and inspection of potential growth areas like damp spots
- Controlling humidity in the park and ensuring it remains below 60 grains (of moisture) per pound (GPP)
- Speedy intervention once microbial issues are suspected

If your tenants report microbial growth issues, respond quickly to limit losses. Contact SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows at (732) 432-9800.
