Mold is a common concern in our world today, and in Seattle it can be a common problem. Many are starting to understand the various dangers that are involved when mold gets into a home. Some of these dangers are to the health of the people and animals that live in the home, but what people may not realize is that the structural integrity of their homes and businesses may be at risk.
Mold doesn’t just cause illness within those who inhale the spores and elicit allergic reactions, it also eats away at any material it’s found on. This means the beams, walls, ceilings, floors, even the very foundations that your home is built on might be decaying due to the mold that could be found on them. Though mold is seen in all climates, regions with large amounts of moisture in the air, such as the Pacific NorthWest, are certainly more prone to mold problems. Seattle residents are certainly no stranger to mold, and the dangers that it can pose.
What does a Mold Inspection do for You?
Though it’s alarming, there are plenty of options available to those who own a home or business in Seattle. Of course, before anyone gets too worked up over the dangers of mold they should have an inspection done. There are multiple benefits to hiring a professional to inspect your home or business for mold, including:
- A professional survey of potential areas for future mold problems
- A review of potential problem areas for current mold problems
- An initial analysis of current mold levels
- A review of possible mold removal/remediation needs
- Personalized advice regarding mold prevention
When you get a mold inspection a professional will go through your home or business with a fine tooth comb. They’ll be looking for a number of factors and signs of current mold and mildew problems, as well as ones that show potential areas where mold may grow in the future. With this inspection you’ll be well informed of what you’re current situation is, if you need further action, and what possible steps you may need to take.

What can You Expect During an Inspection?
During our testing and inspections we focus on the places where mold is mostly likely to grow, which would be damp, dark, and/or low traffic areas. The first area we’ll center on would be potential moisture spots, as mold requires moisture in order to grow. There are a number of possible areas in a home or business where you might find such spots, including around pipes, windows, doorframes, air conditioning units, refrigerators, and more. In areas with large amounts of rain and moisture in the air, such as Seattle, outer walls, openings in the ceiling, and areas around the outer parts of the foundation are also key inspection locations. Our first goal is to ensure that your building’s problem areas don’t currently have a mold problem.
If there is a problem then the next step would be for us to estimate how far reaching the problem is, and what course of action is required to ensure that the mold is brought back under control. Should we catch the mold early enough then this process will be quick and easy for all involved. However, if the problem is allowed to continue to grow then the damages caused, alongside the cost of a larger and more in depth remediation process, will add up at an astonishing rate.
If we don’t find that there’s a need for mold remediation, but there is still a potential for problems in the future, then we have mold prevention services that we’re prepared to offer as well. We’re so confident in these services that we able to offer a 10 year gaurentee with them.
