Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Debunking the Myths About Mold in Seattle Properties 

One of the most dangerous aspects of mold growth and microbial threats in your Seattlehome is how little property owners know and understand about the organism. There are common myths associated with mold that can mislead homeowners into undervaluing the severity of the situation and waiting longer than they should, to get the help that their structure needs. Some of these myths include: 

Mold goes away on its own

Everyone deals with mold in their homes

Basements always have mold 

Most varieties and species of mold are harmless

When you understand that each of these believed statements is false, you can start to appreciate the need for professional remediation and restoration for your affected homestead. 

Remediation Can Help Protect Your Home 

Mold removal might not be plausible or possible, considering that spores naturally exist in every environment of your Seattle home. When spores concentrate, and conditions exist to facilitate colonization, these microorganisms can become a threatening presence. Remediation seeks to eliminate colonies and to restore the damage that a spreading organism causes in your residence. Clearing colonization can rely on several approaches, including:  

Antimicrobial Sprays and Products

Sanding

Soda Blasting

Controlled Demolition

Our technicians do not just stop with removing active colonies, however. We also seek to discover the cause of moist conditions and long-term solutions to prevent recurring mold growth. From controlled demolition and build back to content management, we can help you overcome mold.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
