A Mold Inspection in New Providence Homes Can Reveal Hidden Mold

SERVPRO Helps Repair Mold Damage in New Providence

Every building has the potential for microbial growth when there are favorable conditions. Molds flourish in damp and warm areas of your New Providence home, including kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Mold often propagates in hidden places, like inside walls. For instance, if a pipe inside your wall has a small leak, you may not be aware of it for a while. Moisture can lead to significant damage, including mold.

The best way to determine the levels of microbial growth is with a mold inspection of your New Providence home. Even if no mold grows in your home, you may have areas at risk. Sure signs indicating the presence of mold in your home include discoloration on surfaces and a musty smell. When mold is active, it off-gasses, which causes an odor. However, the mold is likely dormant if there is visible growth but no musty odors. SERVPRO helps you rule out mold presence; if it’s there, our teams have experience dealing with the microbes. We carefully contain the area, clean moldy surfaces, and treat the area to inhibit further growth.

Other things that a mold inspection can reveal:

  • Mold spread patterns
  • Sources of moisture
  • Condition of the structural materials

The Mold Evaluation Process

With visible growth, inspection is not necessary. However, a mold inspection is crucial to determine how much mold is in your property and how far it has spread. Through assessment, we identify the source of moisture fueling microbial growth and stop the infiltration. The source of water helps us determine where to look for mold. If the cause of dampness is not identified and eliminated, the problem might return, and remediation efforts become futile. Our IICRC trained team also examines the internal surfaces, walk-through of sections like;

  • Attics
  • Basements
  • Crawl spaces
  • Storage spaces
