Seattle Indoor Air Quality Guide
Mold is frequently found when people are remodeling their homes. Because it is often necessary to work with and around the house’s structure, signs of mold that would not normally be seen become very visible.
One such homeowner in the Seattle, WA area began a remodeling job on their home and discovered a great deal of mold growth in their crawl space.
I think you’ll find these before and after pictures very interesting.
This is what one typical crawl space looked like, the mold was caused by a lack of proper ventilation. We work with the best insulation companies in the State; they come in and extract the insulation and put the correct ventilation in, sealing ducts if necessary to further diminish moisture getting into the crawl space.
Then after we do our job, they come back in and replace insulation up to code, making sure you get any available rebates from your energy company and saving you big bucks on your future energy bills! And you also get peace of mind knowing your indoor air quality is much cleaner because of our team efforts!
Have you ever noticed when you bite into a powdered donut, the powder flies everywhere! Kind of like when you disturb mold, the spores like to fly everywhere, and we like to keep that under control and make them go where we say. Tough on mold, easy on the environment.
After containment, we vacuum every surface with specialized High-Efficiency Particulate Air vacuums, designed specifically to capture mold spores. Then we scrub and treat with a fungicide, then apply a stain remover, then finish off with an anti microbial which deters future mold from being able to grow. We can warranty the areas we treat for ten years!
Happy Healthy crawl space …so you can breathe easy!
Young children’s bodies, especially their immune systems, are still developing, they’re not physically prepared to deal with the negative effects of continuous mold exposure, the damage it can do may be with them for a lifetime.
What is the quality of the air that you and your children breathe on a daily basis?
If you have mold, or even think you have mold in your home, don’t risk future health of your children. The smart thing to do is call a mold inspector to determine if and why you have mold growth and then remediate it.
