Mold Inspections, Testing & Remediation in Cresskill New Jersey – 07626
Cresskill is a borough located in Bergen Count, New Jersey. It was named due to the watercress that grows in its streams and got “kill” from the water the passes through and sometimes kills the watercress. Established in 1984, there are still many homes in this region well over 100 years old.
It’s unique location contains a substantial amount of water ways, streams, creeks, brooks and rivers that run through this tiny borough. It’s climate contains relatively high humidity even during cold winter months.
It’s important to understand the history, geography, soil and landscape as this provides a ripe environment for flooding, mold growth, and a host of other problems.
Old homes are already very susceptible to mold. When those homes are surrounded by underground water veins, built with long expired codes, it’s no surprise that many homes in Cresskill become contaminated with mold.
If you see or suspect that mold is growing in your home, you may need some mold testing done. This will help determine the true extent of your problem is whether or not mold remediation should be conducted.
Keep in mind that mold testing is commonly over-recommended in this industry. Due to a lack of proper training and experience.
A smart mold inspector, with years of training and experience can usually isolate the source of your problem and devise a solution without the need of any mold testing. And the only time we recommend mold testing is if you plan on selling your home. As per EPA guidelines, “if you see it or smell it, it needs to be removed regardless of strain, type or spore count”.
Finally, if you do see visible mold growing in your home, this is nothing to take lightly.
Mold loves to grow in small, tiny, hidden areas. Especially the hollow compartments between walls and floors. So if you see a little bit of mold on the outside of sheetrock, you may have a full blown colony growing behind the walls. This is why it’s so important to contact a qualified mold remediation company.
