- Our Mold Remediation Strategy for Yesler Terrace Residents
At Mold Solutions NW, we pride ourselves on appreciating the specific needs of Yesler Terrace and the Pacific Northwest. We are eager to work with you to prevent or remove mold. We live and work in the northwest, too, and ensure the products we use don’t pose any threat to the health of the environment here.
One technique we employ with this goal in mind is Microbe Guard, which resurfaces areas where mold is trying to grow. The added layer keeps surfaces free of mold and fights attacks from new microbes. This is one piece of our comprehensive services. Mold is more than a surface problem – we look deeper and use methods focused on long-term prevention. People building a new home or structure will find our prevention strategies especially important.
Our experts in Yesler Terrace 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. Get peace of mind that your mold problem will permanently vanish with our team of experts.
Remediation, inspection for problems and prevention form the core of our strategy. 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. If your building or home is under construction, we can apply preventative treatments to make sure you never have a problem in the future. But prevention can also be part of a remediation process. After eliminating existing mold, we will seek to prevent it from ever returning.
Mold Remediation in Yesler Terrace 98122
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. Mold that grows in an unused location can be overlooked for a long time. This promotes the spread of mold, which can prove extremely dangerous for anyone living in or using the building that is infested.
Whether its been there for days or years, a remediation can get rid of mold problems. Our process can detect even the sneakiest mold before it becomes a threat. We won’t stop short of complete mold elimination. Our comprehensive approach ensures we achieve this.
Step 1: Finding the Mold in 98122
First, we conduct an inspection of the affected structure to detect all traces of where mold is growing. Extra moisture can encourage mold to grow, while foundation cracking and leaks show where it’s already growing. Inspection is a major piece of our overall strategy and you can read more about it below.
Step 2: Stopping the Spread
If mold is discovered somewhere, we will need to use techniques to prevent it from branching out to other areas. Air scrubbers keep spores from spreading and plastic sheeting contains the area. It is important before trying to remove the mold that we ensure that it cannot accidentally spread during the process. 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: Products
After containment comes mold removal. There are products that help Mold Solutions NW during the crucial step of killing off the mold. MMR, a commercial grade mold killer, seeps into surfaces where it is applied to destroy any mold present. But mold may leave behind ugly stains after it is destroyed. During mold removal, you might notice stains on surfaces like wood that were caused by the mold itself. Mold Solutions NW treats even this aspect of mold infestation using MMR that can get deep into a surface that once had mold to remove even the stain left behind.
Step 4: Cleanup
In the course of a remediation, we occasionally recommend discarding certain types of surfaces and objects. We will remove materials like carpeting, cabinetry, drywall and insulation during the process. 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. Particles that might escape containment and move to a new location are collected in a HEPA vacuum. 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: Stopping Regrowth
Mold remediation should not just kill a current growth, but also ensure mold doesn’t find a way to come back. That’s why we employ an EPA-registered anti-microbial that is so good at preventing mold that we even back it with a 10-year warranty. 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. Our prevention methods are described more fully below. We firmly believe in not just killing mold, but preventing it from growing back.
Step 6: Final Inspection
A final inspection helps find any possible place where mold may still lurk. We check to make sure we removed all mold and contaminated items, and that we cleaned up the area where we worked. 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 won’t leave the site of a problem until they’re satisfied that the mold is gone and not coming back.
Preventative Measures in Yesler Terrace 98122
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 understand how important prevention is for Yesler Terrace and the Pacific Northwest in particular. Any home, office or other structure built here has to be aware of the effects of the damp climate we live in. 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. The climate is an obvious factor during construction while the structure cannot be perfectly protected from the weather. The constant moisture in the air and ground around the Pacific Northwest can promote mold growth. 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. Mold that finds a foothold during construction can hide in a home for years to come before finally being noticed. In that time, it has a chance to cause damage and illness. 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.
Therefore, the value of prevention cannot be overstated when it comes to mold. And prevention should not be limited just to homes; hospitals, schools and offices should also try to prevent growth. Any new structure can get infested with mold before it’s even complete.
At Mold Solutions NW, we conduct mold prevention using Microbe Guard. Microbe Guard can establish a new layer over an existing surface such as a wall or section of flooring. Plus, attacking microbes will not be able to grow on this surface. After using Microbe Guard, that surface will become inhospitable to mold particles seeking a new place to grow.
We are proud of our approach to preventing future mold growth in Yesler Terrace. Mold prevention can happen after mold remediation, but is also work before or during the process. The specific details of the mold problem in any given building determines the best time for prevention measures.
Prevention also applies to structures that have already had issues with mold growth. There is no bad time to consider employing prevention methods, whether the building is under construction or very old. Mold prevention can even apply to a home that has not had any issues for years. While it may be more urgent to eliminate the mold that already exists, after that is taken care of, focusing on future prevention will offer peace of mind that mold won’t take hold again. Part of our normal remediation process is, in fact, prevention. We want to make sure no home, office or other building has a mold problem even if it has already required a remediation to root out an existing issue.
We pride ourselves on offering full service mold inspection, remediation, removal and prevention as part of a comprehensive plan to eliminate mold. We keep your specific needs in mind while working to combine expertise and precision in our mold solution services.
Discovering the Mold Problem in Yesler Terrace
Mold is a sneaky threat. That’s why mold inspections are an integral part of our overall strategy for mold remediation and prevention.
The inspectors at Mold Solutions NW know how to find any and all mold that may be in a building. The goal is to get rid of the mold before it can cause damage or get anyone sick. The inspections we conduct are therefore very detailed. 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. 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. Structural pieces like the walls and foundation of a building will get slowly but surely ruined by mold.
Remediation is crucial in situations where mold exists. With so much moisture in the air and ground in Yesler Terrace, mold can find a way into buildings and start to compromise their stability. Our experienced inspectors understand these complications, though, and how to find any trace of mold you may have. That is why inspection is a key aspect of mold solution services, helping to find mold and damage before the situation can deteriorate.
