Mold Inspection & Removal in Ocean City NJ

Named for its location on the Atlantic, Ocean City is an island off the coast of New Jersey. In the 18th century, this barrier island was referred to as Peck’s Beach (after a whaler known as John Peck). Ocean City was recognized as a borough in 1884 from sections of Upper Township. Three years later, in 1897, it was incorporated as a city. As per the 2020 US Census Bureau, Ocean city’s population was 11,229.

The Census Bureau also recorded the city’s total area at 11.56 sq mi. Known for its sandy beaches and around 2.5-mile of wooden boardwalk, Ocean City is a gem of the Jersey Shore. Its proximity to key metropolitan hubs of New York City, Baltimore, and Philadelphia makes this city an ideal summer holiday destination. Notably, it is also a flourishing year-round community with an excellent school system, a busy community center, and easily accessible downtown.

That said, one of the most common problems homeowners in Ocean City experience is mold infestation. Without the proper measures, mold can affect the structural integrity of your property. Worse, it’s a health hazard that leads to respiratory illnesses.

Mold Inspection & Testing Ocean City NJ

Mold inspection is more about identifying the presence of moisture than the mold itself. The certified team at AAA Lead professionals gets to the bottom of the problem so you can thwart the source of moisture in your Ocean City property and subsequently prevent the growth of mold. We usually employ a four-step process for mold testing:

  • Visual inspection – This is a non-destructive visual examination of mold and conditions that encourage mold formation. Usually, mold inspection aims to detect and document evidence of moisture and mold growth.
  • Moisture mapping – Our specialists identify elevated moisture concentrations in your home or property through modern, industry-specific moisture inspection and detection equipment such as thermal imaging cameras and radio-wave moisture meters.
  • Testing – If we spot signs of mold on your property, our next step is to collect lab samples to support our visual observations. During the testing process, we collect air and surface samples to test for the levels and type of mold present. We then submit the samples to a lab for comprehensive analysis.
  • Report of findings – Our team provides a final mold report that includes a summary of the project, the results of the investigation, the lab report, and conclusions and recommendations.

Mold Remediation & Removal Ocean City NJ

Mold removal should be carried by a certified and licensed company. When you engage the services of AAA Lead Professionals, you’ll be investing in a tested and proven remediation process. Below is a break-down of our removal process:

  • Mold containment – When the source of moisture is identified, the affected area is sealed off to prevent the rest of your home from being contaminated.
  • Cover and protect – We also cover your floor, personal stuff, and other restorable items before starting the removal process.
  • Air filtration – Our team uses air scrubbers and HEPA filtration machines to filter the air on your property. These machines have advanced filters that capture the mold spores from the atmosphere.
  • HEPA vacuum – At AAA Lead Pro, we employ HEPA vacuums to clean mold from the surfaces in your building. As you might be aware, mold spores can settle on anything in your house. We clean chairs, carpets, couches, and other fabrics with a HEPA vacuum.
  • Demolition and removal – Vacuuming and treatment will not be ideal for every part of the building. If things like insulation and drywall are infested, it is good to remove them.
  • Apply antimicrobial – We apply an antimicrobial agent that effectively kills mold and other microbes.
  • Scrub and wipe clean – Once highly affected porous materials, like gypsum board, have been removed, remaining building materials like Douglas fir framing and plywood subfloors can then be scrubbed and wiped clean.
  • Re- HEPA Vacuum – We HEPA vacuum the surfaces further to make sure any remaining mold is eradicated.
  • Mold- proof coating – Our removal team applies a mold-resistant coating agent to the affected surfaces. This prevents mold from returning and also stops future infestation.
  • Confirm clean-up – Once we are done with the removal process, we work with you to re-test the air/surfaces to ensure the mold problem has been completely addressed.


What does mold need to grow?

For mold to grow, it needs water, food, water, and oxygen. Additionally, it needs an environment with the right temperature. Although these conditions are necessary for mold to grow, spores can survive a latent state until those conditions are met.

Where does mold grow?

Mold will thrive in places with plenty of moisture, such as where there has been flooding or leaks in roofs, attics, basements, and pipes. Mold grows well on wood products, cardboard, and paper products. It can also grow in drywall, wallpaper, insulation, upholstery, fabric, and carpet.

Does my Ocean City NJ, home need a mold inspection?

If your roof leaks, the basement is flooded, or a broken pipe has sprayed lots of water over the house, you need to schedule mold inspection. Also, any place in your home that got wet and was not dried right away could be contaminated by mold.

    What Our Clients Say

    AAA Lead professionals took care of my mold problem from start to finish. They were professional , knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. I have been having a mold problem in my basement since we bought the home two years ago and we have worked with several mold remediation companies to try and get rid of the mold, it always came back 6 weeks later. It is now six month since AAA Lead Professionals performed there work and the basement is still mold free. We can finally start using our basement without having to worry about our health. Thanks so much for everything. You have really earned a five start review from me.

    Sara Sicker

    I hired AAA Lead Pros to do the mold remediation in my basement. Within an hour of my initial call someone came out to give me an estimate and mold assessment report. Initially, I was not happy to find they charged for the estimate. Once I received the quote back that quickly changed. Lead Pros are extremely well priced. I’m talking a third of what their competitors attempted to charge me. They were also willing deduct the cost of the estimate off the final price of the job. I hired them on the spot after receiving the quote and they were on the job site within a week. As for the work itself, I could not be more satisfied. The supervisor was friendly and willing to ease the concerns of both myself and the tenants by answering an onslaught of our questions. Once the walls and floors started being torn down it became clear to them that to do the job correctly far more material would need to be removed than what was initially agreed upon. This was done at no additional cost to me which made it clear in my mind that they are dedicated to getting the job done correctly without trying to take advantage of their customers. The mold killing agent that was used was a green product so it was not necessary to vacate the premise during the time the work was going on. All contaminated materials were removed and hauled off site. Anything which could not be removed (structural support beams) were treated and encapsulated. They also used an air scrubber which was left running for 24 hours straight to ensure any disturbed mold spores would not further contaminate the air and job site. After the job was concluded I felt compelled to tip them for their great service. They wouldn’t even accept the tip! This is why I felt personally obligated to leave them this positive review. I am normally very skeptical of contractors so it is refreshing to find an outfit like this with integrity. They will absolutely be getting my business again should the need ever arise.

    I’ve used AAA Lead Professionals multiple times for projects we’ve done. We’ve had renovation projects with mold in the crawlspaces, asbestos shingles and tile on another project, and lead on exterior paint of an older house. AAA took care of all these problems in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price. Happy to use their services and to refer them to others.
