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.

How Likely Is Mold in Your Seattle Home? 

With homes along the west coast here in Seattlewe can often experience some of the most humid conditions. Both during the summer and colder months, moisture content can be overwhelming at times can attribute to much of the necessary conditions for the excessive rainfall we can expect every year. Between this higher moisture content, damp basements, and conditions like inadequately dried water losses – mold is much more common than many homeowners might believe.

What Can Remediators Do? 

Remediation is a practice designed to help you relieve the dangers of mold growth in your Seattleproperty. Mold spores exist naturally in nearly every environment, so remediation seeks to remove only the effects of their concentrated effort when moist conditions existed that allowed for colonization to occur. By removing colonies, we can reduce the volatile organic compounds the organism can produce and reduce potential health effects exposure could cause. Immediate remediation from our experienced SERVPRO technicians seeks to address these areas:

  • Odors 
  • Structural Damage
  • Airborne Threats 
  • Moisture Concerns 

Through varying practices like soda blasting, sanding, controlled demolition, and debris removal, our technicians can gain control over pressing mold damage threats.

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.
