A Simple Strategy to Simplify Mold Restoration in Denville  

Denville has many historic properties, including the Ayres-Knuth Farm, established in 1803, the second Union School, and the Peter Cook Dutch colonial stone home built in 1778. Many of these properties precede the township’s formation in 1913 but have remained standing over the years, serving various purposes, including accommodation and recreational space for the 17,107 residents. Denville is unique for its lake communities, like Indian Lake, Rock Ridge, Cedar Lake, and Lake Arrowhead, which offer fishing, swimming, and boating, contributing to the township’s appeal as a residential area.  

Houses can last for centuries when built well and maintained accordingly. However, several enemies, including mold damage, have threatened Denville structures over the years, shortening their lifespan. Mold left to spread uncontrolled in a building eats into frames and studs, compromising the structural integrity. It also affects finishes, leaving paint falling off and deteriorating indoor air quality. SERVPRO® is crucial in continuous property maintenance, including addressing microbial growth.  

Preventive maintenance is essential to curtail such damage to your property. The best preventive action is identifying microbial growth and the conditions that favor it early enough. In most cases, pinpointing and resolving moisture intrusion early is enough. SERVPRO uses advanced equipment such as thermal cameras and penetrative moisture meters to track moisture in your property. 

The moisture aspects we evaluate 

  • Whether relative humidity levels exceed 60% 
  • Whether there are hidden moisture pockets  
  • Whether solid materials like wooden frames contain moisture 

Moisture discovery does not end mold prevention efforts. Our SERVPRO crews can implement different strategies to dry your property, denying mold, which is one of the vital provisions that drive contamination. Setting up LGR or desiccant dehumidifiers brings down humidity levels, allowing moisture trapped in materials to escape into the air, leaving them dry. Porous materials like carpets and upholstery absorb and hold significant moisture. Vacuum extraction helps remove such moisture, eliminating the reservoirs that fuel mold growth.  

SERVPRO of North Morris County reliably handles mold damage, ensuring your property does not deteriorate unnecessarily. Here to Help® (973) 983-5657.
