Contact SERVPRO of Old Bridge/Cranbury to handle any mold removal or mold remediation emergencies.

Mold needs dampness, or water, to flourish. Mold spores will begin multiplying when they reach a wet surface. Some essential spots mold can be hiding include:

  • Bathrooms. Showers, sinks, and toilets are ideal locations for mold. These spots have a tendency to be moist and, without effective ventilation, will give a home to mold.
  • Air conditioning and vents.
  • Fireplaces. When not being used chimneys and fireplaces are cool, moist, and murky—fruitful ground for mold spores.
  • Attics. If your housetop springs a leak, mold can procreate and spread through the ventilation space in the often ignored room. It will thrive in ventilation or soffit vents.
  • Cellars. That conspicuous basement smell is verification of sogginess and—more than likely—mold. As often as possible, mold will be discovered in ducts, surrounding the foundation, sump pump, windows, or vents.

Indoor mold advancement must be stopped by drying the damp conditions inside. If there is mold propagation in your home it is essential to stop it rapidly and take out the origin of the issue. In the right conditions, mold development will spread fast—in as little as 24–48 hours.
