Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Identifying Mold in Your Federal Way Home 

It is more of an everyday occurrence than you might think for mold and microbial threats to exist in Federal Way homes and businesses. With high moisture content and relative humidity along the Puget Sound, many structures combat the conditions necessary to allow mold growth without other disasters taking place. Identifying the presence of colonies in your home as soon as possible can help remediation take less time and ultimately cost less, considering that many insurance plans do not offer comprehensive coverage for microbial destruction. 

You can look for several conditions that could indicate potential mold growth, including:

  • Spotting
  • Discoloration
  • Foul Odors 
  • Persistently Damp Conditions

How Remediation Can Help

Remediation involves the removal of active colonization to help make the entire affected Federal Way structure safer and less hazardous for occupants. There are many ways that remediation can help a damaged structure that has active mold growth. 

Containment can limit the spread and severity of mold colonization, allowing our remediators to get to work on managing moisture content, removing mold from affected materials, and even implementing controlled demolition practices where they are necessary. 

Experienced Microbial Remediation Technicians 

Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) have endorsements and education through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI), and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA.) All of these organizations and standard-setting institutions help us create highly knowledgeable and confident remediation specialists for your home.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.
