Structural Mold Remediation in NJ

structural mold in house

Wherever there is trapped heat and a source of water, mold takes form. Mold usually leads to the formation of fungi which ends in damaging structure.

It’s important to remove mold before it gets worse because the simple formation can impact structure.

The first step of the mold remediation process is figuring out what the source of the mold is. Understanding the different types of structural mold can help you deal with the problem. Here are the three main types:

  • Wall mold: circular patches of varying colors caused by condensation in poorly ventilated or humid areas.
  • Ceiling mold: caused by moisture from showers or baths meeting cooler ceiling material in humid spaces.
  • Floor mold: discolored patches or irregular growth on damp or poorly ventilated flooring materials.
