In Pacific and the entire Pacific Northwest, Mold Solutions NW tackles mold problems. Stopping mold from starting or spreading is our focus and passion. We love the northwest just as much as you do, so our services, while permanently removing mold, are still environmentally friendly and safe.
Among the products we use to address mold issues is the resurfacing agent Microbe Guard, which creates a new, permanent layer over a surface. The added layer keeps surfaces free of mold and fights attacks from new microbes. But Microbe Guard is just one aspect of our well-rounded services. A cornerstone of our approach to mold remediation is thorough prevention that blocks the regrowth of harmful mold. This may be particularly important for those who are protecting a home while it is still under construction.
Our thorough experts have an eye for the details, especially when it comes to protecting the environment and price. They will permanently end your mold problems with services that come with an exceptional warranty for your peace of mind. There’s no need to worry about mold in Pacific if you have mold solutions from our experienced team hard at work for you.
We take a three-pronged approach that includes inspection, prevention and remediation. These priorities help hone our focus so we can thoroughly address mold issues in a long-lasting way. We don’t want to just get rid of mold, but offer the security of knowing it can’t return. We will carefully inspect all the areas where mold can grow. If your building or home is under construction, we can apply preventative treatments to make sure you never have a problem in the future. This kind of inspection and prevention rarely stands on its own though. During a remediation, inspectors may recommend prevention methods.
Mold Remediation in Pacific 98047
Mold remediation isn’t just for residential homes. Mold can make people sick and damage the walls, floors and foundations of just about any structure, including a hospital, school or office. It can be easy to miss it when mold strikes, though. Finding mold isn’t always obvious and it sometimes is left to grow for years. This promotes the spread of mold, which can prove extremely dangerous for anyone living in or using the building that is infested.
A mold remediation will clean up the issue no matter how extensive it proves. We track even the sneakiest mold and completely wipe it out. Our goal is 100% mold removal and prevention. The three tiers of our approach help us reach that goal.
Step 1: Inspection in 98047
Mold remediation begins with an inspection to check every nook and cranny where mold might be hiding. An inspector will look for things like existing mold, cracks in the foundation, leaks and excess moisture. Inspection is a major piece of our overall strategy and you can read more about it below.
Step 2: Stopping the Spread
If the inspector finds anything concerning, the mold remediation process will begin with containing the area affected by mold. We use tools like plastic sheeting and air scrubbers to discover further mold growth. Our experts will make sure that the remediation process doesn’t allow the mold to spread. Spores that are undetectable to the human eye have to be carefully contained so the mold cannot take root elsewhere in the building and start regrowing.
Step 3: Products
After containment comes mold removal. There are products that help Mold Solutions NW during the crucial step of killing off the mold. One product we use is MMR, a commercial grade tool that gets deep beneath the outer layer to destroy mold. But mold may leave behind ugly stains after it is destroyed. Mold that takes hold in surfaces like wood sometimes causes permanent stains even after remediation. At Mold Solutions NW we understand that getting rid of such stains is also important to our customers; MMR can get underneath surfaces to help with this aspect as well.
Step 4: Cleanup
It is sometimes necessary to dispose of certain items too badly damaged by mold growth. Things such as insulation, cabinetry and drywall are frequently too damaged to remain. Discarding damaged surfaces is part of our cleaning process and overall strategy for mold remediation in the structure. Particles that might escape containment and move to a new location are collected in a HEPA vacuum. This is also part of our containment plan. Again, we aim to trap and eliminate any mold so that it cannot sneak into a different part of the building and start growing all over again.
Step 5: Keeping Mold Gone
We don’t want to just get rid of the mold you see now, but also make sure you don’t find any new growth. Our 10-year warranty promises that the EPA-registered anti-microbial we use will keep mold from growing back after it is removed. We have intentionally chosen a product that has no VOC emissions, is water-based and is non-toxic so that you don’t need to fear environmental contamination or health issues from chemicals. We go into more detail about our prevention strategies below. We will make sure mold has no chance to return after we eliminate it from your home, office or other building.
Step 6: Last Appraisal
After removing and preventing the mold, we take a last look for any possible oversight. Surfaces with contamination and mold are removed and destroyed and the work area is cleaned up. Then we back up our work with a 10-year warranty (as included in the bid). We feel our work is not complete until we conduct this final inspection, where we will validate our initial findings from our first inspection and make sure we completely and totally addressed all your issues. Our inspectors have years of experience in mold remediation. They use their knowledge to carefully and meticulously inspect any place where mold might hide.
Mold Prevention in Pacific 98047
As mentioned above, it isn’t enough just to remove mold. Prevention is a crucial concern if you want to protect a structure long-term. A tenant of our approach is future mold prevention. We know Pacific and the greater Pacific Northwest area has its share of mold, so many seek out prevention options to protect them in the future. Any home, office or other structure built here has to be aware of the effects of the damp climate we live in. Therefore, prevention is a serious concern in this area.
People often desire mold prevention services while a new building is under construction. Wet weather has ample opportunity to compromise a home while it is exposed in the normal course of the building process. Rain, air moisture and wet ground are all threats the Pacific Northwest is well-known for. For these reasons, prevention comes often comes into play during the building phase, while there’s ample opportunity to come up with strategies and measures. When mold is able to gain a foothold in the construction phase, it is sometimes harder to kill later on. In that time, it has a chance to cause damage and illness. People aren’t the only ones threatened by mold – it can also harm pets. Plus, surfaces like walls, ceilings and floors – and even the foundation – may be made weaker by a mold infestation.
If you want to protect your family and home, stop mold before it can start. And prevention should not be limited just to homes; hospitals, schools and offices should also try to prevent growth. Mold does not discriminate between buildings based on their use.
Mold Solutions NW uses a product called Microbe Guard for prevention efforts. This product can adhere to most surfaces to create a new layer on top that is free of mold infestation. Plus, attacking microbes will not be able to grow on this surface. A surface covered in Microbe Guard repels spores in the air that try to dig in and grow in a different location.
Mold prevention is a key component of our overall strategy of mold solutions in Pacific. Prevention may take place before, during or after a broader mold remediation effort. The specific details of the mold problem in any given building determines the best time for prevention measures.
Even a building that already has a mold problem will benefit from prevention. Any structure, from brand new construction to a decades old home, will get value out of prevention methods that keep mold from growing. Mold prevention can even apply to a home that has not had any issues for years. Sometimes prevention gets overlooked during the rush to get rid of a problem that already exists, but we believe preventative measures can offer lasting security. Our remediation process includes prevention of future growth for these reasons. No matter why we are conducting a remediation in the first place, we want to stop mold from coming back to infest a home or building a second time.
At Mold Solutions NW, we think of prevention as one piece of the puzzle, along with in-depth inspections and total remediation services. We keep your specific needs in mind while working to combine expertise and precision in our mold solution services.
Finding the Mold in Pacific
Mold is a sneaky threat. That’s why mold inspections are an integral part of our overall strategy for mold remediation and prevention.
Our inspectors will go into your home, office or any other building and try to detect all the sneaky places mold may lurk. We want to root it out wherever it lives so it cannot harm people or property. Therefore, our mold inspection process is extremely thorough. As fellow residents of the Pacific Northwest, we understand the challenges that are particular to this area.
One of the biggest causes for concern with mold is health issues. While that is a very serious concern, people may not realize that there are several other valid reasons to want to remove and prevent mold. Mold also has the ability to sicken pets and weaken the core structures of a building that keep it sturdy. The foundation of the building could be dangerously compromised by mold that damages it as it grows undetected. As it grows, mold can wear away surfaces inside a building like its floors and walls, or even the foundation.
That is a few of the reasons why mold remediation is so important. The structural soundness of a building may wear away as mold spreads and takes hold. Our experienced inspectors understand these complications, though, and how to find any trace of mold you may have. This is why we see inspection as so important to the work of eliminating mold before it can make for a dangerous situation.
