Jefferson, NJ Mold Damage Remediation
With more than 21,000 residents spread amongst areas like Lake Hopatcong or the Mahlon Dickerson Reservation, water and humidity damage are not uncommon to properties. When unresolved, these situations can develop into mold threats that our experienced remediators must resolve. We help with:
- Mold remediation
- Mold inspections
- Bathroom mold removal
- Attic mold
- Black mold
- Mold specialists
Does Remediation Protect Affected Contents of Jefferson Properties?
Contents can often be heavily damaged by spreading mold colonies. Sensitive organic materials that serve as hosts for active organisms can become irreparably damaged without direct cleaning and intervention by our SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater professionals. Remediation for contents occurs both on-site and at our nearby warehouse.
How Attic Mold Impacts Jefferson Properties
The attic can often be a common location for mold development, especially following severe weather situations that occur in every season in Morris County. When mold is suspected in this area, an inspection can determine the location and severity of colonies to begin necessary remediation as soon as possible.
Can Odors Be Removed from Mold-Damaged Jefferson Properties?
Properties like the Jefferson Township Public Schools structures cannot resume normal activities without the full spectrum of mold damage effects getting resolved. We understand the burden of harsh smells after microbial damage, so we have several deodorizing tools to help. Hydroxyl generators provide filtration and odor removal capabilities.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 - (973) 810-2825
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. 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
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums 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 Dover / Stillwater 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
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Jefferson, NJ home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
