Moisture on Materials

Moisture is a homes worst enemy. It causes mold to form on building materials that decomposes and as a result, lots of damage and of course illness. It is important to have a basic understanding of how moisture degrades a building structure.

How materials react to moisture depends upon many factors such as porosity, permeability, absorption, moisture holding capacity, evaporation rates and susceptibility to damage and microbiological growth. Although many building materials such as plaster, stucco and fiberglass are not generally conducive to mold growth, most others are. Below is a list of building materials and how moisture can affect them.

  • Brick and Cinderblock: These materials do have high absorption characteristics, however, like concrete, they do not create a favorable growing environment for mold. It is important to make sure all mortar joints are properly tooled to help prevent water absorption. Once brick or cinderblock gets wet, it takes an extended period of time for them to dry out, which can cause mold to form when given the right set of circumstances.
  • Concrete: Concrete is one of the least predictable materials in the mold remediation industry. Not all concrete is the same. It comes in different thickness’ and some is more porous than others. Due to these variations, it is often unpredictable how concrete will act when moisture is introduced. Concrete does not create a favorable growing environment for mold, however, mold will grow on it especially when other building materials are in contact with wet concrete.
  • Drywall / Sheetrock: Drywall is extremely porous, which means it easily absorbs water causing mold to form. It’s an excellent source of food for mold and should be removed whenever left wet for more than 48 hours.
  • Glass, Plastic, Ceramic and Porcelain: These building materials are non-porous and mold rarely grows on them. However, moisture will often degrade these materials if left for long periods of time.
  • Metal: Metal building materials such as soffits and metal beams are non-porous, making them less susceptible to mold growth. However they do tend to rust when water is introduced for an extended period of time.
  • Insulation: Insulation is considered porous, therefore it easily absorbs water and should be replaced, not dried when wet.
  • Laminate Flooring: While the visible surface of laminated flooring is non-porous and does not invite mold growth, the underside is made of fiberboard and if this gets wet it will deteriorate and mold will grow.
  • Oriented Strand Board (OSB): OSB is similar to solid wood, therefore when the moisture content exceeds 16%, they should be removed rather than dried.
  • Particle Board / Fiberboard: These materials easily absorb water causing them to swell and loose their strength. Mold easily forms on these materials, therefore they should be replaced when wet.
  • Plaster and Stucco: These materials are similar to concrete and in most cases mold can be removed, restoring these surfaces to normal.
  • Plywood: Plywood is similar to solid wood, therefore when the moisture content exceeds 16%, they should be removed rather than dried.
  • Solid Wood: Examples are framing, flooring and trim. These materials are considered semi-porous and when the moisture content exceeds 16%, they should be removed rather than dried.
  • Vinyl Tile (VCT): While these materials are non-porous, meaning they do not absorb water, often water leaks through between the tiles causing trapped moisture below the floor. In these cases it is best to remove the tile to dry down the sub-flooring below.

Called as I suspected potential mold. They were out the next morning to get it tested. Confirmed a few days later it was bad mold, explained the job and what was next. Worked around my schedule and came on time and completed the work promptly. The section of wall where the mold was looks good as new and the workers were great to deal with. Hopefully I never have to worry about mold again, but will certainly reach out to certified mold removal if I need to.

We had a mold problem in out Monmouth County NJ home and called Certified Mold Removal to help us with it. My daughter was getting sick and they came and did mold testing the air in the house to see how bad the mold was. Then they came back and cut out all the mold walls and cleaned everything up before putting it all back again. They did this very good. They also cleaned the air and the air duct vents in our home. Now my daughter is not sick and we are very happy with Certified Mold Removal. Eric Robert and Thomas are all very nice and we would use them again if we have future mold problem. We live in Middletown

I can’t say enough positives about Certified Mold Removal! Eric is amazing at explaining while he’s inspecting in terms that are both easy to follow (for us non-mold experts) while also displaying his deep knowledge of mold problems. The report that Robert sent us two days later was very through and easy to read. It answered all of the questions my landlord had and was enough to get him to take action to fix my problems. Thank you so much Certified Mold Removal!

I am writing this review because it is refreshing to hire a mold removal company that knows what they are doing and I think they should be commended for it! I contacted Certified Mold Removal after my own exhaustive efforts to handle the slight moldy smell in my bedroom closet failed. I thought that a damp set of shoes I found had caused my problem. After finding mold growing on several pairs of shoes in my closet, I ended up throwing some out but then cleaned a few that had a minimal amount mold with rubbing alcohol and then left them in the sun to air out and dry. Then I had the carpet ripped out and painted the room. After all of this, I could still smell a musty moldy smell in my bedroom.!?! At my wits end, I called in Certified Mold Removal. The mold inspection technician Eric ran some mold testing and found that there were elevated levels of mold in the air and the sample from the back side of the wall found the problem! They then fixed my problem by tearing out the moldy wall and ceiling and by bringing in some large machines that cleaned the mold from my air clean, and I could not be happier! My problem has been solved! Certified Mold Removal are definitely the company to call if you have a mold problem in Bergen County NJ! I strongly give Robert and Eric my highest recommendation!

I received such wonderful service from Certified Mold Removal. I have been dealing with a very difficult landlord for years, and when I was faced with the most serious of problems (mold in my town house) I knew I should find someone professional who could help persuade my landlord to take care of the problem. I looked online and called Certified Mold Removal and they sent out a mold inspector the same day. Eric was very sympathetic to my problem and his inspection was very thorough. When the lab results came back, the owner Philip called me and confirmed what I had thought. I was getting sick from the mold in the air. The very detailed report that he then sent me; along with the lab results were persuasive enough to convince my landlord to fix the problem. These people are so professional and I am so happy with them. Thank you again for all of your help!
