Mold Remediation Mold damage can be devastating or stressful to homeowners Mold Found During Remodel in Deal, NJ

Yes mold can be a hassle to deal with but when you have to professionals from SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls there to help we will take the stress off you and deal with the situation.  We have seen mold caused from different scenarios.  Mold caused by damp crawlspaces not properly ventilated or not having a proper vapor barrier installed.  Some crawlspaces might even require a dehumidifier to be placed to remove the moisture that is causing mold growth.  Lack of ventilation in the bathroom or attic may also cause mold to grow.  Living near the Jersey shore in the winter time causes some issues with mold because a lot of the homes are summer homes.  Sometimes homeowner forget to winterize or keep the heat on a high enough temperature and cause pipes to break and not get noticed till the spring or if a neighbor happens to catch the leak.  If the water sits too long and the temperatures vary and get warmer this is prime for mold growth.  Another scenario we have encountered is mold growth on HVAC ducting; this could be from lack of ventilation or a leak from the unit which hasn’t been detected or improper insulation around the duct work itself.   

Regardless of the scenario it is always important to call in the professionals like SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls to remediate your mold issue.  We follow the IICRC standards for mold remediation and work with all insurance companies.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls does suggest that if you do have a mold issue to contact your insurance company because not all policies cover mold damage.  It is important to remediate your mold damage regardless if the insurance is going to pay for it or not because it could lead to structural damage.  Mold damage can also spread to other areas of the home if not treated and contained to the original area and possibly damage the non-porous materials in your home.  Besides damage to the home there could be health issues caused by mold but you should check with your healthcare professional to see if you may be at risk.   

We have pointed out many different scenarios or “issues” mold can cause but our main point is that you need to be educated by a professional and have them remediate your mold scenario or “issue”.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls is here to help and we service all of New Jersey.  If you feel that you might have a problem with mold feel free to contact us and we would love to come out and take a look and give you our professional opinion.

Water Damage Water Damage Laminate Floor in Monmouth County, NJ Damaged Laminate Wood Flooring in Monmouth County, NJ

Flooring receives a lot of wear and tear.  We walk on it every day, back and forth, in both shoes and socks.  Flooring restoration is a task that takes on several different forms for several different reasons.  Maybe you had a recent fire or flood.  Maybe it's simply been ages since you've had a deep cleaning or maybe a mishap has occurred and some serious damage is in need of repair.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls is trained to tackle all of these obstacles and more.

* Damage:  Water, fire, and smoke destruction are always a main concern because you have to act quickly.  It only takes 2 days for temporary damage to become permanent.  But SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls can repair the pile, remove the odor, and even dry the sub-floor if needed. 

* Sanding Wood Floors:  Sometimes it's unavoidable.  If the flooring is worn down to the wood (you can tell by dripping water on it to see if it's quickly soaked up), if it's warped and bent, or if it simply squeaks, you may have to completely sand and refinish.

* Replacing Wood Floors:  Don't worry.  Typically you won't have to replace the whole thing.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls ( can often change out small areas as long as the damage is contained, creating a more complete method of flooring restoration.

* Repairing Wood Floors:  We can also remove blemishes, spots, and small stains without creating any more work for the entire room.  

* Stone Floors:  Stone floors, such as granite, marble, terrazzo, or travertine, may need some occasional upkeep.  But beyond cleaning every day, it may also need an annual coat of polish or sealant, which is far cheaper than replacement.  If it ever gets scratched or cracked, call SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls (732-536-7555) to repair, grind, or hone out the blemishes before replacement is required.

* Tile:  If squares get cracked, address the problem right away: once again, only a small replacement may be required.

* Linoleum:  if your vinyl or linoleum floors sustain wax buildup or they're curling, coloring, fading, or cracking, it may be time for some stripping and resealing to retain their original look and high-gloss.

Community National Night Out in Morganville, NJ Supporting the Marlboro Police Department during National Night Out, in Morganville, NJ

SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls joined the Marlboro Police Department for their National Night Out in August 2017.  We were on hand to explain and hand out information about our services.  The turnout was great and a lot of information was given out.  We also had goodies on hand to pass out to patrons.  A lot of patrons were interested in black mold.  There is a great concern to people about this topic.  People ask if black mold is dangerous.  We are not health professionals so we can’t say if black mold will affected you personally.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls does recommend that if you have a concern if black mold could cause health problems you contact your doctor.   What SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls could do for you if you have black mold or any other type of mold we can remediate the problem.  We do suggest that you contact an IEP (Indoor Environmental Professional) to do testing before and after remediation is performed.  Doing the testing before and after gives us the counts of the mold spores in the home and if after remediation the counts are still high we perform the work again till levels are in the safe range.  If you don’t know how to find an IEP SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls can out you in contact with one.   Mold grows because of a water source or moisture issue so finding that and stopping it is the first priority.  If moisture levels are high SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls will dry out your structure and ensure the moisture issue has been addressed so mold growth is stopped.   SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls looks forward to joining the community at the next National Night Out again to pass along our knowledge in our field.  If you have any questions feel free to contact us or check out our website  We love to help out our community and look forward to seeing you soon. 

Fire & Water Damage in Middlesex, NJ

Fire Damage Fire & Water Damage in Middlesex, NJ Fire Damage to home in Middlesex, NJ

There's something terrifying about fire damage especially if you come across the wrong restoration company.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls had a customer that called us in after another restoration company had started the job but the customers just were not comfortable with what was happening on site.  Our team sat down with the customer and explained the process of our work with them and also informed them of some facts about fire damage.  Fire damage is caused by fire, smoke and heat and they affect the structure of a home as well as the contents within the home.  In this blog we will be pointing out fire damage facts that could help you in the future. 

Smoke and soot residues are a common effect of fire even the smallest of fires.  Not all soot is the same, some soot is easy to cleanup and others are extremely hard to clean.  You need to learn about smoke and combustion to understand the different types of soot.  As combustion takes place, the burning material is actually breaking own and combining with oxygen while heat is given off.  Fuel, oxygen and heat are 3 components that have to be present for combustion to happen.   

Smoke is created when burning materials decompose, and release solid particles, gases and aerosols that suspend in the air.  Some of the gaseous by-products generated in a fire, such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide, are extremely dangerous if people are exposed to the smoke while the fire is in progress.  In addition to fire gases, smoke also consists of fine particles of matter and aerosols. The solid particles of unburned material are usually small particles of carbon. The aerosols are extremely fine solid or liquid particles suspended in the gases. These particles—while they are suspended in the air—are what make smoke visible to our sight. The particles are also odor-absorbing, which makes soot smell. 

If you are near a fire in progress, keep down low to avoid breathing smoke-filled air. Technicians working long periods where heavy, loose smoke residues are present should wear a respirator. Smoke particles from incomplete combustion can contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), which may be cancer-causing (carcinogenic). 

Once smoke settles on surfaces as residues, it is often referred to as “soot.” Soot residues can contain different types of acids since chlorides and sulfides in smoke mix with the humidity in the air or with moisture to form acids. Acidic soot residues will cause discoloration and corrosion if they remain on materials over time. 

Not all soot residues are the same. Some types of soot are easier to clean than other types. Technicians will most often clean one of four different types of soot: 

  • Dry smoke residues
  • Wet smoke residues
  • Protein smoke residues 
  • Fuel oil smoke residues

Every fire progresses through stages, generating both wet and dry smoke. Some fires produce a large enough proportion of one type of smoke to characterize the entire exposure as predominately wet smoke or predominately dry smoke. Different cleaning methods are used to remove different types of residues. Generally, wet smoke is more difficult to remove than dry smoke. 

Whether smoke residues tend to be dry or wet is determined by several factors: 

  • The rate of combustion 
  • The amount ofoxygen present during the fire   
  • The type of material or substance that is burning.

In many fires, the more oxygen available while the fire is in progress, the faster the combustion process takes place. Fast-burning, oxygen-rich fires usually produce a dry smoke. Oxygen-starved, slow-burning, smoldering fires usually produce a wet smoke. 

The type of materials burned also affects the smoke particles and aerosols produced by a fire. Natural materials tend to produce dry, powdery, small, non-smeary residues, or dry smoke. Examples of natural materials are dry wood, paper, cork, and natural fibers (wool, cotton). Synthetic materials tend to produce wet, large, easily smeared particles of residue, or wet smoke. Examples of synthetic materials are plastics, foam rubber, and similar polymers. 

More types of materials are restorable in dry smoke conditions than in wet. Dry smoke residue carries few aerosols and deposits small, dry particles on surfaces. Dry smoke does not stain surfaces as deeply as wet smoke, and the odor is less pungent. Less aggressive cleaning procedures will usually remove dry smoke residues. One problem, however, is that dry smoke generally comes from hotter fires, which cause more heat damage than do cooler fires. 

Wet smoke residues are more difficult to remove than dry smoke, making restoration more difficult. Wet smoke typically contains a high proportion of aerosols such as varnishes, solvents, and other liquid components. With a slow-burning fire, air currents do not drive the smoke from the heat of the fire. Wet smoke moves slowly and has time to work its way into crevices and enclosed areas that normally would not be contaminated by a faster-burning fire. Within minutes of contact, very hot oily residues will discolor plastic materials. 

In many instances, contents exposed to a smoldering fire and wet smoke are not restorable even though heat damage is minimal. Aerosols in wet smoke soften, penetrate, and stain finished surfaces. Unfinished surfaces also absorb and entrap these residues. Burning plastics and rubbers produce large, black particles that tend to smear or smudge. Removing wet smoke may not be possible, and sometimes even stripping and refinishing may not prove adequate. 

Kitchen fires often involve burning meat, poultry, or fish. Burning these materials leaves protein residues, which may be yellow or amber in color or virtually invisible, causing only slight discoloration of painted walls and cabinet surfaces. Protein smoke odors, are extremely pungent, so odor removal is usually the biggest problem in protein fires. Odors in protein fires cannot be controlled without thoroughly cleaning all surfaces contaminated with the greasy protein residue. Sometimes an entire home may require cleaning even though residue concentrations are not visually obvious. 

Furnace puff-backs, very common in the Northeast, occur when a malfunctioning oil burner suddenly ignites, jarring loose old soot. Improper venting or a crack in the heat exchanger may cause a puff-back. Soot from a puff-back consists of dust particles from the ductwork and fuel oil that did not properly burn. It may be gray to black in color, greasy, and consist of small or large particles. The fresh soot is usually removable without damaging painted surfaces. However, the soot particles are sometimes hard and crusty, so one must be careful not to scratch surfaces. If the furnace has been emitting smoke over an extended period prior to ignition, the soot may bond to wall paints making it impossible to remove the soot without removing some of the paint. 

During a fire, soot and smoke particles settle on and adhere to surfaces. Restoration means removing those soot residues. If you understand how smoke behaves during a fire, you will know where to find the heaviest deposits of smoke residues when you inspect a damage. Two factors of smoke behavior deal with temperature—the temperature of the smoke and the temperature of surrounding surfaces. 

Convection refers to heat being transferred through air movement. Hot air rises because it is not as dense as cold air. As it rises, it displaces cooler air, which flows downwards. As a fire continues to burn, it pulls in the cooler air at lower levels and heats it. This air rises and forces the air near the ceiling to flow downwards. As long as the fire burns, this pattern continues, resulting in a constant movement and circulation of air in a building or room. These are convection currents. 

You probably learned as a child to drop to the floor if ever caught in a smoky room. The reason is hot air rises (which means smoke also rises). Smoke continues upwards until stopped by the ceiling. The greatest concentration of smoke residues will be on the ceiling immediately above the fire area, unless strong opposing air currents were present. 

Smoke moves into adjacent rooms as the upper portion of the room fills to the doorways. Still hotter than the surrounding air, the smoke stays near ceilings and continues to migrate towards upper levels of the home, depositing smoke residues as it travels. 

Heat lines may be visible in rooms where the fire was very hot. Above the heat line, residues are more difficult to remove because heat opens up pores in surfaces allowing deeper penetration (heat makes materials expand). Aerosols and residues can be literally baked on. 

In smaller fires, rooms at levels lower than the source of the fire may have little smoke damage. Ventilating the home immediately will also reduce damage to lower levels. Otherwise, as the air cools and falls, it may carry some residues and odors to all parts of the home. 

As the temperature of air rises, the pressure that air exerts on surfaces increases. To be precise, as the air temperature increases by 10°F, the pressure increases and the volume of the air double. This means that the hotter the fire, the harder smoke is forced against surfaces. This explains the concept of driven smoke and free floating smoke. 

Hot smoke moves by pressurized air with force and is, therefore, called driven smoke. As hot smoke collides with surfaces, it deposits residues and is the cause for soot residues on vertical surfaces. 

Cold smoke was once hot and pressurized, but lost its force as it cooled. Cold smoke is called free floating smoke because it floats through the building until gravity causes it to settle on horizontal surfaces. 

Hot smoke tends to move toward colder surfaces. This principle, expressed as hot goes to cold, results from convection currents—as hot air rises, the cooler air around cold surfaces falls and is replaced by warm, smoky air contacting the cooler surface. Hot smoke, therefore, migrates toward the colder surfaces of outside walls and windows, closed drawers, closets, and unheated rooms. As hot smoke migrates, it deposits residues more heavily around colder surfaces. If walls are well insulated, windows provide a substantial temperature difference so that air currents may concentrate in that area. This difference in temperature (called a temperature differential) around a window causes a heavier deposit of tar and smoke residue on the back of draperies than on the front. Closets receive surprising concentrations of residue because they are cooler than the room interiors. 

Two more factors of smoke behavior deal with smoke leaving residues as it moves through a building—arrangement of building space and ionization (magnetism).  As smoke travels from the source, it flows around building obstructions with the air current that carries it. Each obstruction tends to pick up smoke residues from the air as it passes by, acting as a filter. The farther smoke travels from its source, the fewer residues it contains as they are filtered out by contacting building obstructions. 

Smoke follows airflow patterns through a building, spreading residues within the structure. Convection currents often follow the direction of heating mains and tubing in homes where hot water heating is installed. Smoke flows upward through openings cut for water pipes. Convection currents continue upward behind radiators resulting in heavier deposits on walls immediately above these units. 

Some areas in a building receive more smoke residues than other areas due to the airflow pattern through the building. The cavity above a suspended ceiling may also serve as an air return and have heavier smoke deposits than the finished ceiling beneath. This cavity can also spread residues to a wider area of the building. Since air tends to flow in smooth curves, it bypasses sharp angles and shallow cavities. Corners formed by the junctions of ceilings and walls receive less smoke than adjacent areas. 

Smoke can work its way around some obstructions. Rooms that were closed off may have surprising concentrations of residue. Remember: Closed doors cannot stop smoke! You may notice heavy residue concentrations under or around closed doors, around cracks, and around the edges of carpets. As smoke flows around and through cracks, it deposits heavier residue concentrations. Generally, smoke concentrations will be present on the far side of door openings and ceilings immediately above them. Also, drawer interiors and other seemingly inaccessible areas can attract smoke. 

Some areas of a building’s space actually provide shortcuts that carry smoke to areas that otherwise might have received little or no residue. For example, air currents may flow within the HVAC ductwork even if the blower is not operating. If forced air heat or air conditioning is operating, air returns, registers, and walls and ceilings near them will show a greater concentration of residue. 

Generally, smoke residues are less concentrated in building areas farther from the source of the fire. The longer a fire continues, however, the more evenly distributed smoke will become throughout the structure. As long as the fire continues to heat the air, circulation patterns are created by hot air rising and cool air falls. All the air in a building will eventually become involved in this circulation, even air in basements and lower levels. 

Ionization refers to smoke particles (especially those from burning plastics) that become electrically charged. Since opposite electrical charges attract, smoke residues with strong charges may be attracted to surfaces with the opposite electrical charge. 

This charge is present in many synthetic fibers and plastics in general. A synthetic lampshade will frequently attract noticeable concentrations of residue, while a silk or paper shade sitting next to it remains unaffected. A plastic dry-cleaning bag covering clothes also attracts more residues than an unprotected cotton dress hanging beside it. 

Due to ionization, you may see smoke webs on surfaces in a structure. Residues (such as from burning plastics or the soot from some furnace disorders) may form long chains of ionized smoke particles that assemble in corners or at junctions of walls and ceilings. Smoke webs look exactly like cobwebs, but homeowners are happy to learn they are actually smoke webs. 

Ionized smoke particles cluster on metal surfaces just as metal filings cluster on a magnet. Through magnetism, charged smoke particles are attracted to metal surfaces such as plumbing pipes and coat hangers. Nail heads that are invisible beneath drywall become clearly outlined by smoke because their magnetic attraction remains effective despite the covering of paint and plaster. This is often referred to as nail pops, but the statement is misleading since the nails are still in place; it just looks like they have come to the surface. 

These are just some fire damage facts that you should be aware of if you ever encounter this problem.  Always ask your restoration contract questions and keep asking them till you feel comfortable with them.  Remember it is your decision who you use to restore your home and no one else they can only make suggestions.

Fall/Winter 2017-2018 in the North East

Water Damage Fall/Winter 2017-2018 in the North East Frozen Pipe in Ceiling of home in New Jersey

Fall/Winter 2017-2018. So far the north east has been pretty lucky with the weather this season. The fall so far has been very mild although this week seems to be dipping down in tempatures. Some of the weather experts are saying that mid- December-January will be cold toward the end of the months continuing into early/mid-February. Possible late January into early to mid-February we could excpect some snow. But that’s a long way from now till then so all we can really do is play it by ear and day by day.

With all the differences in the weather there seems to be a lot of people coming down with colds and or the flu. So let’s all remember to cover our mouth and noses when coughing and sneezing, also antibacterial lotion and soap. Remember when you are out and about shopping and have to use a cart to wash your hands because the handles of shopping carts have ton of gems. Some stores even have antibacterial wipes next to the carts for your convenience. We all need to stay healthy so when the snow storms come we can go out and have fun in the snow.

When the snow does come and it will we need to make sure that we take a lot of breaks while shoveling our driveways and cleaning off our cars so we don’t over exert ourselves causing health problems. Please check on your elderly parents or neighbors as it is harder for them to do those chores themselves. If you have teenagers have them go over and help out. Keep an eye on your pets in the snow too their paws can become frost bitten.

With the winter come the freezing cold, make sure that young children and the elderly are taken care of and kept warm. It is a good idea before the winter even gets started to have your heating check by a professional because if you don’t and it fails in the middle of a storm or cold freeze professionals could be too busy to get to you in a timely manner. Always make sure you have plenty of canned goods and water on hand incase power is lost. If you can afford it buying a generator is a good idea just make sure if you have to use it there’s plenty of ventilation so the fumes don’t cause more harm than good. Ice dams are also a headache when it comes to the winter snow storms. An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. This will cause you to have to call in a professional like SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls to come in and fix the damage. Most the time ice damn damage will be covered by your homeowners insurance but you should double check with your insurance company to see if would be covered. Depending on how much damage is done it could be in the thousands to mitigate and repair.

Mold Remediation

10/5/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation Commercial Mold Loss in Brick, NJ

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. 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 a pet. 
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants. 
  • 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. If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.  If You See Signs of Mold, Call SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls Today – 732-536-7555.
