Closter, NJ Mold Damage Remediation
Mold can develop quickly in moist environments. Because of the storm damage and flood effects that many Bergen County homes experience, these conditions are not often hard to meet. Our experienced remediation team can help homes and businesses in many ways after mold exposure, including:
- Attic mold removal
- Mold removal
- Mold inspections
- Content Relocation
Where is Mold Removal Needed in Closter Properties?
Every mold damage situation is different. Home mold removal is approached uniquely to the work that larger commercial structures might require, like Homans Ave or Closter Plaza businesses. Removing mold means targeting active colonization in these structures.
How Can Mold Odors Get Removed from Closter Homes?
After surface treatment and cleaning, odors created by active colonization should be reduced in strength. With deodorization practices, it is not unlikely to eliminate these harsh smells entirely. Portable odor removal devices like thermal and ULV foggers can help in this venture. Permanent removal can also get completed using hydroxyl generators, air scrubbers, and ozone machines.
When Are Mold Damage Repairs Necessary for Closter Houses?
Controlled demolition is one of the final measures in removing active mold colonization from homes and businesses when the exposure is too great. With a general contractor license, our SERVPRO team can help to perform the necessary build-back and repairs to return a property to its original condition.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 - (201) 244-0100
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
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help 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 Northeast Bergen County, Fair Lawn 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
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
