Mold Testing

While visible mold on drywall or plywood may come as a shock, the most significant growth may still be unseen. Once an inspection has signaled cause for concern, mold testing is almost always the next step in the process. 

We first gather mold samples from the outdoor air to be used as a “control”. Next, an indoor air sample is obtained for comparison. Both samples are overnighted to an accredited third-party lab. The resulting report is typically delivered within 3-4 business days and consists of to main pieces of data: the species of fungus within your home, and the volume of spores present within the air. 

Our mold technicians thoroughly explain the report to you in a way that is simple to understand and clearly communicates the situation at hand. Armed with this report, our customers can make informed decisions that minimize cost. Think you need mold remediation? Professional mold tests can help you know for sure.

Mold Remediation

Leaks and other water damage are often the main events that cause mold to grow indoors. The longer water is left standing on any surface, the more likely mold will grow. At its worst, toxic spores can spread throughout an entire home in as little as 48-72 hours. Once the surface damage has been done however, it is sometimes impossible to reverse. That is why it is essential to turn to the pros. 

Materials such as cardboard, ceiling tile, wood, insulation, and drywall are all susceptible to mold damage. In order to remedy the issue, remediation may be necessary. We use the industry’s top notch equipment to physically remove the mold, clean the air (HEPA filters/vacuums), and repair the affected areas. 

After working with hundreds of homeowners, business owners, landlords, and others, we can confidently say that no job is too big or too small. Our mold remediation services get your space back to the way they were – only without the mold!

Air Quality Testing

If ever mold is a concern in your Seattle home, air quality testing is usually an easy and convenient way to know for sure. Indoor air quality can be decreased most commonly by a lack of ventilation, but can also be from materials used in older homes. These harmful substances can include allergens, pollutants, or particulates. 

After calling Mold Inspection Seattle, one of the first steps we will take to perform air quality testing is monitoring. This requires an electrochemical sensor which detects toxins that are in the air. It is essential to know what exists in your air and how much is there.

Following this step, it may be necessary to test for mold spores. The most important thing to consider is that mold spores naturally exist in the air already. If we find that the spores in your home are also present outside of your home, there is much less cause for concern. However, if we detect high concentrations of dangerous mold spores not found outdoors, it may be time to conduct mold removal and/or remediation.

Black Mold Removal

When families think of mold growing in their home, the species everyone is concerned about is black mold. While black mold is common in Seattle and can present a risk, there are other species to be wary of as well. 

Chaetomium, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, and Alternaria are all species of mold known to cause harm in humans. Stachybotrys, or “black mold”, can cause severe symptoms such as diarrhea, headaches, or flu-like effects.

Without conducting air quality testing and mold testing, it is very difficult to determine which type of species may be in your home or business. No matter what spores you suspect, give Mold Inspection Seattle a call to speak with one of our black mold removal specialists. We will educate you, walk you through the process, and ensure the appropriate steps are taken to keep you and your family safe.

Mildew Removal

Sometimes high levels of humidity and damp odors can come as a result of mildew growing in the building. Attics and basements are common locations for mildew and can significantly impact you quality of life near these areas.

While many consider mold and mildew the same, there are actually some significant differences between the two. Mildew is a type of mold or fungus that also grows on organic materials like paper or fabric. However, instead of growing into clumps like mold does, mildew grows “flat” and spreads out.

As a result, walls or basements impacted by mildew growth can appear stained. However, this stain will continue to grow over time unless the mildew is removed effectively. Effective removal of mildew in Seattle may involve decreased humidity, targeted cleaning measures, or a number of other interventions to make sure the situation is completely handled.

Cleaning Mold

According to the EPA, cleaning up mold begins and ends with moisture control. Without effectively decreasing the water level in the air, mold will have the raw materials to continue to grow and spread to surrounding areas.

There are a number of solutions to cleaning mold growth in your Seattle home. These options can range from common household items such as bleach and vinegar to less common ones like borax an ammonia. Knowing how to properly utilize these chemicals when cleaning mold in Seattle can be the difference between a fix and a worse problem.

Mold Inspection Seattle can not only inspect and identify, but effectively remove and remediate any mold that may exist on your property. We take the DIY out of something that can have a very serious impact to your health. Give us a call and let our team of mold removal professionals put you at ease.
