Mold Removal & Remediation
Comprehensive local mold inspectors
It rains almost half the year or an impressive 150 days in Washington. All that moisture makes for some of the country's most breathtaking forests and verdant landscapes. With over 22 million acres of land covered in forests, that moisture is put to good use much of the time. However, when it comes to your home, too much water is not a good thing. Excess moisture creates damp spaces, and unfortunately, it can also lead to one of the most insidious and pervasive causes of poor indoor air quality: mold. While mold is a part of natural environments, it is not healthy to live with daily and doesn’t have a place in your home.
High concentrations of moisture in the air often lead to high mold counts. In our homes, mold can cause allergic reactions and respiratory infections which can be worse for children, pets, and the immuno-compromised.
If you suspect your home is harboring mold, it’s important to get mold testing from not just a local mold remediation company but Bellevue and Mercer Island mold experts. We believe the safety and comfort of your home are a top priority, and we’ll work hard to make sure your home is a mold-free space for you and your family.
How Does Mold Start Growing?
Since mold grows exponentially, the longer you wait to have it removed, the quicker damp, unseen areas in your home become overrun, putting your health and those you love at risk. Mold can get into your home in a variety of ways, including on pets, through your HVAC system, or even on your clothing. Mold starts by growing on surfaces that are damp and can remain that way for as little as 24hrs.
Mold reproduces and spreads through airborne spores. It spreads when it consumes the material it's growing on, releases its spores, and then expands to adjacent areas. Mold will continue to grow unless any leaks are stopped, and the mold is removed.
Many of the things inside our homes are great breeding grounds for mold. Mold loves paper products like cardboard and wood products, and if items made of these materials get wet, it becomes even easier for mold to grow.
In addition to cardboard and wood, mold can also grow just about anywhere including in paint, dust, insulation, wallpaper, carpet, fabric, drywall, and upholstery. Once it takes hold in these different materials, mold can be very difficult to eliminate.
You may think that a simple spray or some DIY cleaning with bleach will do the trick, but that doesn’t totally clear up the issue. Once the mold is present, you can no longer take a solely defensive approach. It’s best to go on the offensive and tackle mold head-on. Chore-ology is among the top mold removal companies, and we can work to eliminate even the most distressing infestation of mold.
Why Professional Mold Removal Services are So Critical
Tackling your mold problem on your own? Not everyone is a professional for mold remediation. We’ve seen horror stories of folks in King County trying to DIY their mold remediation in Bellevue. Leftover toxic mold spores in areas or dangerous mold colonies that haven’t been properly cleaned up can worsen the issue and infect more areas of your home. This can cause severe and long-lasting damage that may be very difficult to come back from.
Safely remediating a mold issue also takes specific removal and protective equipment. Try it on your own and the toxic mold could end up putting your health at risk. Want to get rid of mold permanently? Hire a professional company to ensure that your property is treated right the first time. Otherwise, mold issues and the effects of mold exposure are likely to persist or keep coming back, costing you more in the long run. Our trained professionals have the skills necessary to remediate your mold issue and remain safe while doing so. We will take care of the mold quickly and make sure your home is a safe place for you and your family to be. Contact us to schedule an appointment today.
