MMRG consistently provides the most comprehensive mold inspections, but there is a fee for lab tests. Mold sampling must be executed by a certified mold inspector at all times. A minimum of 1 control sample should be collected from all contaminated properties. The price of mold testing is varies widely depending on the severity of your problem. There is a myth which says outdoor mold spore amounts should be the same as the inside your house. But what studies have shown is that spore counts indoors should be 10% less than levels outdoors. This is because UVB rays from the sun kill the most toxic forms of mold. So homes are much more prone to developing toxic mold as opposed to the outside environment. If spore counts exceed the recommended threshold limits, we will recommend mold removal for your Hoboken, New Jersey home.

In quite a few households that require mold removal or remediation, there is always bad venting or elevated moisture content. The moisture content of any given substrate (wood, concrete, etc) should always be less than 20%. The relative humidity of your home should always be lower than 40%. Proper ventilation can solve moisture problems most of the time. But if the moisture is from the result of a leak, the leak must be corrected before any mold can be treated. In case the mold inspector is unable to see mold, he’ll have to examine the air to verify his results. In these occasions, we can generally see mold colonies that cannot be detected by eye. Anytime mold is identified over threshold limits, mold removal ought to be done in your Hoboken home.
