Stay Clean, Healthy with Mold Remediation
The proven mold remediation offered at Mold Solutions works to permanently resolve existing mold issues of any kind with a seven-step process.
A certified mold removal inspector will thoroughly inspect each facet of the home, carefully noting any area of concern as it relates to existing mold, water intrusion, visible leaks, foundation cracks, sump pump failure, and excess moisture. In the event existing mold is discovered, a detailed proposal for mold remediation including full protocol is submitted for approval.
Containment of Affected Area
Mold remediation includes the complete isolation of the work area from occupied spaces using plastic (6 mil poly) sheeting sealed with tape. HEPA air scrubbers are used to generate negative air pressure to prevent cross contamination of adjacent areas. These HEPA air scrubbers run throughout the mold remediation process to eradicate any airborne mold spores.
Mold Remediation Process
All contaminated materials are treated using Duraban’s exclusive family of products. We use EPA-registered, quaternary ammonium, designed for use on various surfaces subject to microbial contamination. Any dark mold staining will be treated with Duraban’s exclusive product, MMR. MMR is a commercial grade mold remover and mildew stain remover formulated to immediately remove mold and mildew stains present on wood and other hard surfaces. This application eradicates mold stains on contact. MMR penetrates soiled areas almost instantly, leaving surfaces clean and free from mold stains.
Removal of Damaged Items and Materials
Any contaminated material that cannot be remediated during the mold remediation will be removed and discarded (drywall, carpeting, padding, cabinetry, etc.). Loose material (insulation, dirt, debris, etc) is removed in sealed plastic bags and discarded.
Job site Cleanup and HEPA Vacuum
Entire worksite is swept free of debris and HEPA vacuumed. Mold Solutions technicians are trained to search for areas where debris and other minor particles would otherwise go unnoticed. The use of HEPA vacuums minimizes the transference of collected particles. Special attention is given to all exterior wall cavities under any opening where water intrusion could occur.
Applying Anti-Microbial Preventative
All affected areas are then treated with Duraban’s exclusive, EPA-registered anti-microbial. This water-based, non-toxic, non-leaching, non-VOC emitting product is so effective at preventing the return of mold, that once it is applied, we back our work with a 10-year warranty!
A thorough post completion inspection is conducted to ensure there was a complete application of antimicrobials. Our certified technicians then remove all poly/tape, warning signs, and any other equipment or materials they brought to the job site. Within 7-10 of receiving final payment, you will be issued a fully-transferable 10-year warranty if one is included in the bid.
Mold growth is due to moisture problems, so mold remediation in the Seattle area is a common problem. Fixing problem areas at first sight will greatly prevent the possibility of harmful mold growth levels.

What is the difference between mold remediation in Seattle and mold removal?
Mold remediation is simply removing excess mold and returning the mold levels back to their natural state. Mold spores are naturally present indoors and outdoors. As such, it is impossible to completely remove mold spores. Some may claim to completely remove mold, but they cannot truly remove it. Here at Mold Solutions, we are highly experienced in mold remediation.
Can’t I just do the mold remediation myself?
Although you can treat mold overgrowth on your own, it is much safer to use a mold specialist. Prolonged exposure to mold has been linked to both respiratory and neurological damage. A certified mold removal expert will wear protective gear during the mold remediation, protecting them from the dangerous effects of mold. Additionally, they will quarantine the area slated for mold remediation with a thick plastic liner, and use HEPA air scrubbers to prevent any contaminants from escaping to nearby areas.
How do I know if mold remediation is needed?
Mold Solutions offers a free, no-obligation inspection if you suspect that you may have a mold problem. If no mold remediation is necessary, but the conditions are conducive to mold growth, a mold prevention plan may be recommended. If there is excess mold discovered in the inspection, our certified technicians will compile a comprehensive mold remediation plan specifically for you and your situation. Our mold remediation plans are all so effective at removing mold growth and preventing it from coming back.
Is there an overgrowth of mold in your home or office? Don’t ignore the mold and its potentially hazardous consequences for your health! Our mold remediation service will ensure that the danger of mold is completely neutralized. Mold remediation treatments will even target the hidden areas where mold generally stays hidden. Contact us today for your free inspection, or to start your mold remediation project!

Mold Solutions NW understands the particular challenges of preventing mold in Seattle. We are eager to work with you to prevent or remove mold. We also want to protect the beautiful region where we live, though, and do so through the use of EPA-registered remediation products.
Among the products we use to address mold issues is the resurfacing agent Microbe Guard, which creates a new, permanent layer over a surface. By resisting microbial assaults, the new surface can seal out mold, giving it no chance to grow. 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. People building a new home or structure will find our prevention strategies especially important.
Our experts in Seattle have an extraordinary safety record and use affordable and environmentally friendly products. They can rid any building of mold and back it up with a warranty as part of some bids for remediation. There’s no need to worry about mold in Seattle 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. We believe this approach offers the surest method of mitigating mold problems. Mold has no opportunity to sneak up on you and take root with our mold solutions. We will carefully inspect all the areas where mold can grow. By rooting out these locations, it is possible to take preventative measures against future growth. But prevention can also be part of a remediation process. During a remediation, inspectors may recommend prevention methods.
Mold Remediation in Seattle 98101
It isn’t just home owners who need to eliminate mold. Any structure can accrue mold buildup, including office buildings, schools and hospitals, and the people who use those buildings are in danger of getting sick from dangerous mold. Many people may not even realize they have mold, however. 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.
Once you know or suspect you have a mold problem, though, remediation can clean up the issue. We track even the sneakiest mold and completely wipe it out. Nothing less than total mold remediation is our aim. Our comprehensive approach ensures we achieve this.
Step 1: Inspection in 98101
Mold remediation begins with an inspection to check every nook and cranny where mold might be hiding. Some of the telltale signs include cracks, leaks and excess moisture that can promote mold growth. Learn more about the specifics of how inspection assists in our overall process below.
Step 2: Preventing Growth
One of our first jobs when we find mold in a building is to cordon off that area to stop it from spreading. 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. We don’t want spores to escape during the process and potentially get into other parts of the home or building where they can grow again.
Step 3: Mold Solution Products
Now the mold is eliminated. In the process of addressing mold growth, Mold Solutions NW uses a variety of specialized products. One product we use is MMR, a commercial grade tool that gets deep beneath the outer layer to destroy mold. Additionally, we address the stains sometimes caused by a mold growth. Mold can stain things like wood as it grows, leaving behind permanent cosmetic damage even after it is gone. MMR helps Mold Solutions NW address stain concerns as well as mold growth by getting under the surface on affected areas.
Step 4: Cleanup
In the course of a remediation, we occasionally recommend discarding certain types of surfaces and objects. Carpets, cabinets and drywall are all common items in need of disposal. That’s all part of the cleanup process, which also includes vacuuming and sweeping up any dirt or minor particles overlooked in the remediation process. A special HEPA vacuum ensures that even tiny particles get collected to minimize the chances of the mold moving elsewhere. This aids in our efforts at containment of the mold. We want to make doubly sure that mold doesn’t find a way out of the contained work area and into a different part of the building.
Step 5: Prevention
Mold remediation should not just kill a current growth, but also ensure mold doesn’t find a way to come back. Our 10-year warranty promises that the EPA-registered anti-microbial we use will keep mold from growing back after it is removed. The anti-microbial is water-based and non-toxic, so you don’t need to have any worries about leaching, VOC emissions or other environmental or irritant concerns. We go into more detail about our prevention strategies below. At Mold Solutions NW, we don’t just want to get rid of mold – we don’t want it to ever grow back.
Step 6: Last Appraisal
A final inspection helps find any possible place where mold may still lurk. 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). The initial and final inspections of a building suffering from a mold problem are important for first identifying all issues in the structure and then making sure the remediation and prevention were completely thorough. Our confidence in this process stems from our inspectors’ expertise. They won’t leave the site of a problem until they’re satisfied that the mold is gone and not coming back.
Mold Prevention in Seattle 98101
Our mold solutions will do more than simply get rid of existing mold. It isn’t sufficient to just kill and clean up mold where we find it. Prevention is a crucial concern if you want to protect a structure long-term. Some of our mold solution services focus specifically on prevention. We know Seattle and the greater Pacific Northwest area has its share of mold, so many seek out prevention options to protect them in the future. The weather here is frequently wet and that can lead to significant mold problems in any building. It’s no surprise then that prevention is a big worry in this region.
Prevention is a frequent concern during construction of a new home. As a home is being built, it may be exposed to rain and other natural elements that could promote mold growth. The Pacific Northwest is particularly hazardous because the air and ground are so frequently wet. But during the building of a new structure is also a great time to explore mold prevention plans that can offer peace of mind even after the building is done with. When mold is able to gain a foothold in the construction phase, it is sometimes harder to kill later on. This can lead to structure damage and result in people getting sick. Family pets are also susceptible to getting sick from mold if it is in the house. And it causes damage to the integrity of a structure, eating away at walls, floors and even the foundations of the building.
If you want to protect your family and home, stop mold before it can start. It doesn’t matter if the building is a home, officer or hospital, either; they can all benefit. Mold is happy to grow in any structure where it is able to find a secluded place.
At Mold Solutions NW, we conduct mold prevention using Microbe Guard. This permanent treatment works by creating a new surface over a product such as wood or other surfaces. The added layer will also fight off microbes. After using Microbe Guard, that surface will become inhospitable to mold particles seeking a new place to grow.
We pride ourselves on our prevention techniques and methods in Seattle. 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.
If mold already exists, that does not mean it cannot be prevented in the future, however. 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. Whatever your circumstances may be right now, we also want to leave you feeling sure that you won’t deal with mold growth again.
Preventing mold is just as important to us as finding where it is and eliminating it in the first place. We keep your specific needs in mind while working to combine expertise and precision in our mold solution services.
Finding the Mold in Seattle
Mold can hide for years. We therefore conduct in-depth inspections during any remediation of a building with issues.
The inspectors at Mold Solutions NW know how to find any and all mold that may be in a building. We want to root it out wherever it lives so it cannot harm people or property. The inspections we conduct are therefore very detailed. We understand the Pacific Northwest and Seattle; we know the climate here can promote mold growth due to the wet weather.
Many people are anxious to remove mold after they spot it because it is a health hazard. But health issues are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to motivations for eliminating mold. Mold can also harm pets, as well as make the basic structure of the building weaker. Home owners might not even know that their house is at risk when they spot mold, but it is actually dangerous for the integrity of the structure. As it grows, mold can wear away surfaces inside a building like its floors and walls, or even the foundation.
Obviously, this is a dangerous situation that calls for swift remediation. With so much moisture in the air and ground in Seattle, mold can find a way into buildings and start to compromise their stability. The inspectors who will work with you will be able to find any sign of trouble in your home, however. This is why we see inspection as so important to the work of eliminating mold before it can make for a dangerous situation.
