Winter proofing your basement in New Jersey – why mold remediation matters

Winter proofing and mold remediation for your basement in New Jersey is absolutely essential if you want to ward off the presence of mold infestations and there are various options available. External water proofing of the basement will require excavation from the outside to the bottom of the footer which can be a messy process. Interior waterproofing can be done from inside where a small area of the floor perimeter is removed allowing access to the footer from the inside. With the installation of an interior footer drain, ground water is collected and directed away by means of a pump.

During winter, water condensation can cause a serious mold problem and if you already have this problem it can simply be exacerbated. When you suspect the presence of a growing mold problem, mold remediation is the answer. This process involves an expert analyzing the type of mold infestation you have, so that it can be ascertained whether the infestation is dangerous or not. The mold must be carefully handled so as to not release mold spores into the air which can make you and your family sick.

Depending on the type of mold infestation, different methods of remediation can be used. In some cases chemicals are required and in others dry ice blasting or scrubbing is necessary.
