Our Plan to Leave You Living in Comfort

Value Dry’s goal is to keep that water from getting in and allowing the mold to grow in your home so part of our remediation process is to try identifying where the water is coming in. Without stopping the source, you shouldn’t just try remediation. Mold will come back.

Once the source is stopped, you want a company that can create a remediation plan that minimizes any dust moving through your house so you capture all of the mold in one location and remediate it properly.

Value Dry has the experience to help you manage your mold concerns from Burlington County to Bergen County, and all over NJ.

Value Dry is your best partner to remediate all your mold concerns. If you have an issue in your crawlspace that is causing the mold, or require foundation repair in New Jersey, we can help with those as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes that typical basement smell?

The musty smell is often mold that is blooming and starting to spread. Mold is always present in the air and is just looking for a source of moisture. If there is any humidity or water in your basement this allows it to thrive and as it grows the smell is created.

Is all mold dangerous?

No, only a few types are really toxic but all mold in high concentrations can cause issues with allergies, breathing, headaches etc. Because of modern building practices, homes now are built tightly sealed with little to air circulation to the outside. This tightness when combined with moisture allows for a buildup of mold and allergens that can be harmful. This is what the EPA and Board of Health term as “sick building syndrome”.

I have been told that all I need to do when I see mold is check if it is black mold and if so then simply bleach it. Is that true?

The color of mold does not determine whether it is toxic. Many types of mold are black while only a few types are toxic. The number of spores, their impact on you and whether the mold is actively growing is more important than color. Bleach can be effective on removing mold from nonporous substances such as tile counter-tops but it actually leaves behind water which promotes future mold growth on porous items like wood, drywall etc.

Why do we normally suggest the air sample test?

In many cases when a person calls us they might not actually need remediation. Mold exists everywhere. It is the amount and type that are present in your home versus what is normally found outside your home that matters. The outdoor air sample test is conducted to get a control and comparative sample. The indoor test will be conducted around the location of your concern. These are compared at the lab for corresponding concern around issues. If someone only takes a sample at the location of your concern it’s easy to show large numbers of some naturally occurring mold spores that do not need remediation. Know whether you need remediation by testing correctly.
