Everett, WA Mold Damage Remediation

Mold can be a substantial problem for Everett area homes, especially when you consider the higher humidity levels throughout the Puget Sound region. With groundwater and flooding continually being a concern, especially during the winter months, conditions exist that can promote the growth and spread of microbial threats in your property. Our experienced remediation professionals can resolve these concerns with prompt action and knowledgeable techniques designed to minimize out-of-pocket expenses and unnecessary tear-out.

Mold Remediation Options for Everett

The removal of active colonization is one of the most important steps that our professionals can take upon arrival at a mold-damaged home or business. Instead of targeting all mold spores throughout the property, our process focuses on active colonization that presents health effects or threatens your house. Multiple steps and stages of remediation vary based on the impact the organism has on specific exposed materials and contents in the home. Some of the standard options include:

  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Media blasting
  • Sanding
  • Controlled demolition 

Mold Odor Removal in Everett Properties

One of the known aspects of active mold colonization is a musty odor emitted as the colony grows and thrives. During the restoration of damage caused by mold colonization, our technicians must address harsh odors and the property and trapped within its contents. We have multiple efficient deodorization tools, including foggers and ozone machines that can remove odors in the house and remaining items, fabrics, and furniture.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return. 
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (360) 243-8313

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

SERVPRO of North Everett / Lake Stevens / Monroe will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Everett, WA home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
