Does Your Attic or Crawlspace Have Mold? SERVPRO Has The Answer.

Homeowners know that there are areas inside it that you never go into or even look at. Spaces like your attic or crawlspace are not typically parts of your home that you frequent. However, it is wise to check the sections of your structure now and then to ensure nothing is wrong.

If you notice that something doesn't look or smell right in these areas, you may have to conduct mold removal in your Seattle house. For example, your water pipes could develop a slow leak that puts moisture in your crawlspace and thus allows black mold to form. Or, a small leak in your roof could cause attic mold to grow and spread. Once moisture enters any part of your structure, the humidity levels elevate, putting your entire attic or crawlspace at risk.

Luckily our SERVPRO technicians have your back and can offer fast 24/7 service. Our highly trained team can use advanced technology to assist you by conducting one or more of the following procedures:

Once a fungus develops, it can spread to anywhere in your house with wet organic materials such as paper or wood. Since mold can cause health effects, it is wise to remediate it before it gets worse.

Nobody particularly likes the smell of mold, and it is a sign that there could be other issues. If you ever see or smell fungi in your attic or crawlspace, call SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast at (206) 362-9295.

  • Medium fire damage occurs if heavy smoke and soot residue spread in multiple rooms of the structure. Such a fire can cause heat damage to the drywall, cabinets, and contents.

SERVPRO Saves Seattle Homes From Water Damage Complications

Water damage can be a nightmare for any homeowner in Seattle, especially if it is left unmitigated. Water issues can arise due to many reasons such as –

  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Basement flooding
  • Faulty plumbing

Whatever is the source of the water damage to your Seattle home, SERVPRO has you covered. Our water damage restoration experts work hard to get the situation under control as quickly as possible and limit the secondary damage. The restoration process begins by assessing the extent and severity of the damage. SERVPRO techs use equipment such as moisture meters, thermo-hygrometers, and thermal cameras to determine the moisture content of various surfaces. The next step is to get the structure dried as quickly as possible by establishing a drying goal. 

How do SERVPRO Restorers Establish a Drying Goal During Water Damage Repairs in Your Seattle Home?

A drying goal is the set of conditions that the material and contents are expected to display once SERVPRO techs restore them to their preloss dryness in your water-damaged Seattle home.

SERVPRO techs take the moisture readings from the unaffected area of the structure that act as a 'dry standard.' The goal is to have the structure and contents in the affected area dried to the extent that they have moisture levels corresponding to the dry standard. Strategically placed dehumidifiers and air movers accomplish this goal. 

In case of any water damage-related issues, call SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast at (206) 362-9295.

Factors Affecting Cleanability During Fire and Smoke Damage Repairs at Your Seattle Property

A fire and smoke damage to a restaurant kitchen in Seattle can create many different cleaning challenges for the SERVPRO professionals. Burning buildings results in several complicated interactions between various elements, and several factors can impact the cleanability during the restoration process.

Porous surfaces, for instance, sustain heavier damage than non-porous surfaces and are consequently more difficult for SERVPRO restorers to clean. The presence of moisture is yet another factor affecting cleanability. In fires where sprinklers were activated, or surfaces were saturated as firefighters were fighting the fire, residues are much more difficult to clean.

The type of material burnt also affects the severity of the damage. Proteins burning in kitchen fires can cause smoke damage that is notoriously difficult to clean and deodorize.

Seattle SERVPRO Techs Perform Emergency-Response Flood Water Removal

Flood damage affects homeowners all across the United States regardless of FEMA flood map designation. However, irrespective of whether Seattle property owners can enact flood prevention measures to minimize damage, floodwaters pose sanitation concerns that make cleanup with consumer-grade solutions inadvisable.

SERVPRO Flood Cleanup and Rebuilding Services

SERVPRO technicians take several factors into account when removing flood water from a Seattle property, such as:

  • Waste cleanup, pest removal, and microbial remediation with EPA-registered biocides
  • Structural drying with centrifugal air movers and industrial-grade dehumidifiers
  • Contents of the property can be moved off site to an approved SERVPRO warehouse for repair and restoration while technicians work on mitigating flood damage to the structure
  • Techs can implement new drywall after cutting out unsalvageable sections with flood cuts above the waterline

Flooding can render some porous items, like carpeting, a loss due to the high potential for contamination, making it more cost-effective to replace than repair. For basement flooding, technicians take steps to minimize the risk of damage to walls or the foundation of your home.

Homeowners in need of disaster mitigation can call SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast at (206) 362-9295.

SERVPRO Availability Minimizes Mold Damage
