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.

Mold is one of the more underrated threats to Washington homes and businesses, primarily because property owners fail to understand how destructive these organisms can be when they exist. Microbial colonies can continually spread and worsen in moist environments. 

What Can Mold Do to Your Home?

Understanding the impact of mold on your property is an important consideration, as this organism can deteriorate hosting elements and create a volatile environment for restoration professionals and house occupants. Knowing where to expect this damage and the urgency of pursuing skilled remediation professionals helps to prevent widespread irreparable harm. SERVPRO helps with the following:

  • Bathroom Mold Removal
  • Basement Mold Remediation
  • Attic Mold
  • Mold Remediation
  • Black Mold
  • Mold Damage Repairs

How Does Mold Remediation Work?

Remediation is one of the most necessary to protect a property after mold exposure. Our specialists are AMRT-Certified through the IICRC, offering a range of tested approaches and knowledge of successful inhibiting products to improve remediation efficiency. While, ideally, surface cleaning is the preferred method of mold removal, more intricate and abrasive tactics like media blasting or sanding can be necessary.

Mold Damage Repairs

Damages from mold can often lead to a need for repairs and reconstruction. Remediation at its most direct level requires the full removal of infested materials like drywall to eliminate further spread and movement of spore activity. We can perform needed build-back services after the complete remediation and removal stage with a general contractor license.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
