East Brunswick, NJ Mold Damage Remediation
Mold is not selective in its targets, so any property with unmanaged moisture and poor ventilation or airflow might host active colonies. From renowned venues like Grand Marquis to the East Brunswick Museum, our experienced team of remediators understands the urgency of mold removal.
How Can Mold Remediation Get Started?
Choosing the appropriate mold removal approach is a product of careful evaluation of affected materials and hosting elements. Factors that determine surface cleaning, media blasting, sanding, and even controlled demolition involve the locations of mold organisms throughout the house. Some of these common mold threats include:
- Bathroom mold removal
- Basement mold remediation
- Attic mold removal
- Post-flooding mold remediation
Where Are Mold Damage Repairs Needed for East Brunswick Properties?
Because colonization can often deteriorate hosting materials, materials like drywall and flooring become unsalvageable after a short time of hosting organisms. Our professionals work fast to provide repairs and build back services where needed, becoming a one-stop shop for recovery after compromising mold damage.
Is Odor Removal Possible for East Brunswick Homes?
Mold impacts homes and businesses in several ways, but harsh odors are one of the most lingering concerns for remediation professionals. Active colonies produce powerful and musty smells that overtake the environment where they exist, making deodorization and odor neutralization vital efforts by our responding team. We have numerous strategies to help reduce and remove malodors.

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (732) 432-9800
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your East Brunswick, NJ home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your East Brunswick, NJ home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
